What is Business Process Management (BPM) and Why Is It Important?

By Sylvain Doré on May 11, 2021 11:04:16 AM CEST

All businesses always have at least one business process. A simple trading business could have just one business process and other companies, however, can have multiple complex business processes that are interconnected to each other. 


How successful a business is, is essentially determined by how efficient and effective it is in executing its business processes, and this is where Business
Process Management comes in.

Aproove Version 4.3.4.3 Release Notes

By Xavier Dorvillers on May 10, 2021 6:02:41 PM CEST

Today Aproove is pleased to announce version 4.3.4.3. Below you will find the release note summary.

Typically Aproove sends out an email notification that incorporates two or three highlighted features within the email along with a list of all new functions and enhancements.

Today we will place the release notes in the blog area in a change from our usual email announcements and then focus on relevant new features in the coming weeks (before the next release). We will also offer a webinar with each new release when significant new functionality gets released.

This is to give our users more drip-fed information about each release, and it will also allow us to "zoom in" on the new functions between the releases. We want to explain the feature and also provide some business "use-case" examples.

The Ultimate Guide To Workflow Automation

By Gary Fisher on April 12, 2021 4:56:16 PM CEST

In today's competitive landscape, many organizations demand more agile and error-free business processes.

Many are now relying on workflow-based innovations and automation to improve efficiency and productivity. The basic idea of automation is to reduce or eliminate human involvements from the execution of a process with three key objectives:

  1. Reducing risks of human errors both in meeting compliance and in terms of data security
  2. Freeing the valuable employees' time so they can focus on core competencies and contribute more to achieving the organizational goals
  3. Reducing human resources costs

Software solutions can execute specific tasks at a much higher speed than a human could. Thus, automation of these tasks can significantly speed up the repetitive processes while freeing up your resource to carry out more valuable work.

Announcing PDF Layer Support in the Review Interface!

By Gary Fisher on February 12, 2021 9:16:20 AM CET

Adding PDF layer support is a significant enhancement of the Aproove Work Management Review Interface, giving our customers a competitive edge not seen in other technologies!

Optionally allowing your reviewers to see any layers inside a PDF document is a great starting point, but we never stopped there! We also added many surrounding features that enable you to restrict layers to different users and groups and store the viewing conditions (what layers were turned on or off) to know the reviewer's exact viewing conditions when they made the annotation note.

The Asset Browser - Digital Asset Management (DAM) Interface

By Gary Fisher on November 23, 2020 3:22:13 PM CET

Aproove Work Management today expands its use case to incorporate Digital Asset Management (DAM) capabilities as part of the core product.

The Aproove Drive has been in existence for several years, giving users the ability to store, share, and distribute files within the interface. Those files could be proofs or supporting files such as creative briefs or master files. The Aproove Drive concept was at a "project level," meaning you stored and accessed the files at the project level. This feature was handy for Work in Progress files but a little limited if you wanted a full view of all your assets stored on Aproove.

Aproove Work Management with in-built DAM capabilities opens endless possibilities to manage "work in progress" projects while also having a holistic view of your data repository housed within the same system. Combine this with full online proofing and task management, and you have a fully incorporated Work Management platform to drive your business.

By Sylvain Doré on October 26, 2020 11:28:38 AM CET

In recent years, the term work management started gaining popularity, and a common misconception is to use the term interchangeably with project management. 


Work management and project management are two different concepts—although there are some similarities—, different timelines, different natures, and different objectives.

Here, we will discuss the concept of work management, its benefits, and how to implement it in your business.

What Is Online Proofing and Approval?

By Gary Fisher on October 15, 2020 11:12:07 AM CEST

Proofing traditionally got performed manually by reading manufactured hardcopy proofs before the files reached the printing press. 

Nowadays, we have much more content across many more platforms than traditional print. Web content, video, audio, and interactive files are commonplace in the modern world, and none of those formats can get checked using physical proofs. Many companies have multiple output formats and need to cater to all these different formats in the proofing process. 

The file could get printed, published on a website, social media, or broadcast on TV. Proofing has evolved, and Online Proofing is the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly method for review and approval.

Introducing Note Tags!

By Xavier Dorvillers on July 17, 2020 7:03:27 PM CEST

A major enhancement to our Online Proofing functionality "Note Tags" are designed to help with identification, classification, and decisions on individual annotation notes.

What are Note Tags?

Note Tags introduce a new way of managing annotation workflows. Note Tags cover multiple needs ranging from automated note identification to complex approval and decisions at a note level. 

Note tags can automatically be applied when users make annotations, and permissions can be used at a project level to determine what note tags (if any) are available to the different users.

Note Tags can be added when a user creates an annotation note (automatically, manually, or a combination of both). Note Tags can also be made available or hidden at different step stages based on your workflow requirements.
