Is your department keeping up with the latest developments in approval workflow management? If the “outs” below sound familiar, you may want to consider a cloud-based solution for 2012 – or risk falling behind the competition.
|Sharing content and feedback over emailSure, you can use email to share content and feedback. But big files can clog up the server, and email threads can quickly grow unmanageable.||inMotion keeps the conversation out of your email.|
|Sending files over FTP or YouSendItIt’s possible to work around big files using an FTP client or even YouSendIt. But these opitions can be difficult to use and unreliable to access.||inMotion can be easily accessed from your browser and, unlike FTP, actually allows users to share feedback.|
|Falling behind when you’re away from your deskIt can be hard to stay on top of all the assets pending your feedback if you’re out of the office or spending a lot of times in meetings.||inMotion lets you review and approve assets from any internet-enabled device, including mobile devices.|
|Struggling to review interactive contentWeb pages, video, and Flash can be difficult to send and display.||inMotion captures web pages for simple one-step upload, and displays video and animation content as it was meant to be seen – in motion!|
|Opening proofs in their originating softwareYou can’t assume that reviewers have the right software installed to open a file for review. And if they do, they’re presented with distracting and unnecessary editing tools.||inMotion lets you view to access many different file types in your web browser, and unlike content creation programs, limits the tools reviewers are provided to only the ones they need.|
|Bulky descriptions in revision requestsWhen communicating feedback over email, a reviewer often has to describe what they want changed before they can present a revision request.||inMotion allows reviewers to easily show what they want changed, by marking up content just like they would a printout.|
|Chasing down assets and feedbackYour time is too valuable to spend digging through your inbox looking for a file or feedback, or circling back with reviewers to verify their approval.||inMotion keeps your content and its approval status in a shared, cloud-based workspace so it’s always easy to find.|
|Stressing about version controlThe trouble with sending a file to multiple reviewers for feedback is that after a round or two of revision, it gets difficult to be sure that everyone’s looking at the same version.||inMotion ensures that everyone is reviewing the same version – and even better, reviewers can see each other’s feedback. Previous versions are stored and accessible to reviewers as well.|
|Not keeping records of feedbackGoing back to look for feedback in your inbox can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. A haystack that sometimes gets deleted.||inMotion stores archives of all versions of all of your asset reviews so you always have your revision requests available.|
|Lack of accountabilityDon’t know who provided signoff on an asset, or where your team’s bottlenecks are, or what changes were made between versions?||inMotion makes the who, what, and when of your content review and approval process transparent with proof info details and custom reports.|
It’s time to take your content review and approval into the future, and get your projects in motion!
