Saranow: “SureTint is an error-free, waste-free color dispensing system that is up to seven times more accurate than conventional mixing. Our initial beta test site at Xenon International Academy in Wichita, Kansas, is producing remarkable results after installing the system just three months ago. Xenon management estimates that it has reduced its consumption of hair color by approximately 30%, and it anticipates producing annual savings well in excess of the cost of installing the system. We are confident that similar savings can be achieved in salons throughout the country, and that our approach has the potential of increasing the profitability of the whole industry.”
