In-house Creative Departments Can Now Extend inMotion’s Approval Workflow Management Capabilities to Outside Vendors with the New Vendor Connect Module
Research Triangle Park, NC – August 25, 2011 – The Vendor Connect module allows in-house creative departments using inMotionNow’s Approval Workflow Solution to easily and securely invite vendors into their internal review and approval process. Both enterprise businesses and their vendors benefit from inMotion’s simple upload interface for web, video, Flash, and print content as well as automated routing and notifications.
Businesses requesting vendors to submit creative content are often challenged with coordinating the review and approval process while limiting vendor access to clients and proprietary information. Vendor Connect simplifies this end of the review and approval process, allowing in-house creative teams to provide access to vendors to upload a variety of content types through an invitation-only portal without opening an inMotion account. The content is then routed to the stakeholders for review based on pre-determined workflows set up by the in-house team. This ensures in-house and client stakeholders get the benefits of inMotion’s intuitive review interface and advanced workflow management capabilities without exposing sensitive internal data and client contact information to the vendor.
“Our agency, retail, and entertainment customers and their vendors were tired of sharing content via bulky emails and cumbersome FTP sites. They wanted the benefits of automation that our Approval Workflow Solution provides without risking vendors getting access to other content and client contact and information that should be protected. With Vendor Connect, we’ve created a secure portal that makes the content sharing and review process easier for vendors, in-house creative departments, and clients,” said Rob Munz, CEO of inMotionNow.
The Vendor Connect module for inMotion offers the following functionality:
- Vendors can upload print, web and video content, triggering an immediate notification to in-house and client reviewers
- Vendors upload portal is private, secure, and doesn’t expose any client contact or proprietary information
- Once submitted, content is automatically routed based on customized rules preset for that vendor
- Predetermined workflows and a simple upload portal mean vendors can easily submit content with zero training
