Powerful collaboration workflows

Automated proof routing, dashboard, sections

Workflowv2

Fully customizable automated proof routing

Aproove proof routing lets you define process steps, the team, including guests, and their roles and tasks. This lets you design a structured workflow of the process that you want the team to follow. Proof routing workflows are editable, can be saved as a template for reuse and even shared.

Versions with advanced automation tools enable trigger events to automatically initiate any next actions that you have pre-defined. For example, if your document has been reviewed and refined by the creative team, it can automatically request a client review. Or, if your document has been approved by a client, it can automatically trigger implementation.


Dashboards and analytics

Manage and analyze all your projects with detailed dashboards. Aproove’s project management features allow you to efficiently manage your tasks, proofs, and to do lists, as well as monitoring team collaboration. Clean layouts of Team and Project dashboards use a traffic light system to make sure you know where each Task and Proof item is, showing you where to focus attention to stay on top of your projects.

Folders

Easy upload and integration with existing workflows and systems

Files may be uploaded into Aproove in multiple ways. There is the simplicity of drag and drop in the browser. Or for high productivity pre-press and reprographics environments a more advanced system provides automation using hot folders, enabling Aproove to integrate and work closely with other production systems.

Whichever way you choose to work, Aproove will simplify your workflows. Aproove supports unlimited file sizes, so forget about sending or receiving assets using third-party file transfer services, cumbersome FTP, or as email attachments.


Section management in flatplan view

Aproove does support sections inside jobs. The purpose of it is to manage complex divisions inside a job for grouping pages or assets including video, restricting access to part of a brochure (R/W, Read only, no Access, Hidden), or to simply display pages grouped in a specific way (chapter, forms, TOC, etc.). This gives a very powerful approach to manage complex approval/annotation process across big publications with a lot of pages and a lot of users. The setup is done in seconds using a simple drag and drop action.

Staples

"We began using Aproove in our European operations [in 2013], with great success...It reduced the number of physical proofing cycles dramatically, with a resulting drop in paper costs and total time spent on proofing...our earlier process of downloading and distributing PDFs was costly and time consuming, but Aproove has solved this...Aproove is truly innovative."

Staples Europe has tightly integrated Aproove in their internal marketing collaboration workflow with more than 350 registered users and hundreds of guests involved in review and approval, all on the fly from all their Business units in all European countries. Aproove Architecture and its very low hardware footprint has helped Staples to run the whole solution on a single instance Aproove server running on a 2 core virtual machine.

"We were in the market for a soft-proofing and collaboration tool that would provide us differentiation with our customers and meet a long list of requirements. As the creative services arm of RRD, our goal is to provide our customers with the best services, solutions and technology offerings.

After reviewing multiple tools in the marketplace today, we selected Aproove. It’s clean, intuitive approach to technology design and functional design met, and in many ways, exceeded our expectations. Aproove looked beyond the annotation of a file and built behind the scenes functionality that supports efficient workflows for those creating content. The response from the Aproove team is exceptional. We were in need of a robust admin workflow builder that was due to release with the ‘next’ Aproove update. Not only was this provided on-time (unlike most software vendors) it also exceeded our needs and expectations.

I have complete confidence in Aproove’s ability to continue to impress us as they continue to enhance their products."
