For kitestring creative branding studio, ProofHQ helps in a big way when managing our large roster of clients. The online platform makes our workflow more efficient, ultimately streamlining our process and eliminating some of these “agency woes:”
Too many cooks in the kitchen
The days of paper, pen and marked-up documents by multiple people are behind us. With ProofHQ, we no longer have to search through email threads to track a project’s status or receive multiple comments and revisions from multiple hands in the pot. We deliver branding projects, copywriting and ads fresh and ready. With ProofHQ, the system allows for our clients to share their proof with all parties involved and have real-time collaboration. We can now send along files to our client contact and they can open their proof anytime and anywhere. This eliminates endless email threads and executive team and board member wait times. Forget indecisive menu decisions, and over-cooked revision times; we are serving up our work well done with only one head chef!
In the past, it has often been difficult to track the scope of a project or to approach a client to let them know their revision numbers or project is coming to a close. With ProofHQ, we can upload multiple versions of a file without overriding the last version. This allows all proof participants to review previous revisions. When it comes time to upload the final file for review, it is easy to show a client we have completed the scope of work as required as it is all logged in one place.
Arrive alive at the deadline
In a creative agency, there are often tight deadlines and multiple projects on the go. Fortunately, by using ProofHQ, we can meet these deadlines and complete multiple tasks much quicker without gasping for our breaths or running to catch up. ProofHQ allows for quick uploading of large files and alerts all proof owners or reviewers as soon as an upload occurs. Ultimately, the system allows us to meet fast turnaround times and projects are opened for discussion from anywhere at anytime. With this way of proofing, we are ready to cross the finish line!
By using ProofHQ, our small team can stay organized with its easy folder and tagging system, review files in minutes and deliver all items on a check-list quickly without error.
To be perfectly honest, our clients love ProofHQ too!
