A move to online proofing will change your organization’s world3 minute read

And result in faster execution of approved campaigns.

When should you look at moving away from traditional methods of reviewing work?

  • Are you attaching a low-res Adobe Acrobat PDF into an email and asking your colleagues and clients for feedback?
  • Perhaps you put the file in a shared workspace such as Dropbox, Google Drive, Box or Microsoft Sharepoint to name a few, then ask your reviewers to open the files there to see the work to be checked?
  • Maybe you print out copies of your work and try to circulate them and gather feedback in that manner?
  • Phone calls to chase reviewers? Hand-written markups on printouts landing back on your desk? An overly cluttered email inbox of opinions and change requests? Frustration present for everyone involved?
Online proofing eliminates feedback chaos and you and your reviewers.
Traditional methods of reviewing and approving creative are unproductive and unmanageable. Frustration is present for everyone involved.

In all these cases and more, feedback from your team, clients and peers will be coming from a variety of sources that are unproductive to you and in most cases unmanageable without a considerable amount of effort – from you and everyone involved.

If your organization is routing proofs of work around using any of the above-mentioned methods, there is no better time to make the change than now. Your organization’s future can look like this:

Online proofing eliminates feedback chaos for you and your reviewers.
Everyone commenting on the same file, in real-time.

Imagine a new world

Imagine a world for your organization where everyone you’ve asked to review your work, can put their comments directly on the same file (in real-time) – with pinpoint precision to where they are referring to.

Use the red pen to add comments directly on the work, then push the green button when you’re finished. Simple.

Now imagine anything and everything your organization produces can be reviewed in this same manner. Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, PDF, Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, video files, audio files, websites (including staging-hosted websites), HTML email templates, HTML web banners…even 3D content!

Now imagine achieving this streamlined, pinpointed review world, only needs a browser to proof all your imagery, TV commercials, promotional videos, radio ads, websites and splash pages, animated banners, documents, budgets in Microsoft Excel, storyboards, brochures, photography, logos in Adobe Illustrator…

Now you can send your work to anyone, anywhere in the world and all they’d need is a browser to look, review, comment and approve it.
