file sharing apps for marketers

Your marketing team likely works with multiple documents a day, most of which require feedback and editing. Sending those documents through e-mail attachments is now the equivalent of snail mail. Instead, there is a great deal of file sharing apps that allow marketers to share files instantly and across a variety of devices.

Many of these file sharing apps have evolved from simple file storage. They can also allow team collaboration and the ability to integrate with other marketing technology through open APIs.

I had the opportunity to speak with existing ProofHQ customers, potential customers and a whole range of Digital Asset Management (DAM) solution providers. The common thread in all these conversations was the relationship between Online Proofing and DAM.

I don’t think that anyone I spoke with disagreed with the obvious synergy between the two types of application. Every piece of content or creative asset stored in a DAM system needs to be reviewed and approved at some point in its life cycle.
