Initially released in April as a color reference system for purchase, the mobile app Inspire™ and its accompanying sensor device chromaPro™ are now packaged under a subscription model, with an initial test release in the United States.

The subscription-based offering means paint professionals can try the service without the financial commitment of most color sensor systems. Pre-loaded with most U.S. paint decks, the device and app allow contractors to collect colors and inspiration, organize projects and ideas, and share those ideas with clients via smart device. ChromaPro and the Inspire app work together as a design workflow team to collect color inspiration, reference against color libraries, create palettes, organize, share, and even order product or color samples. The Inspire app is a base and allows for unlimited customization based on the user’s objectives.
