Designers can send documents directly from Adobe Creative Suite to ProofHQ to share, review, collaborate and approve their design projects. As the review team makes comments in ProofHQ, the designer can view those comments right inside Creative Suite.
ProofHQ delivers its powerful online proofing tools to users of InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop and Photoshop Extended with the CtrlReviewHQ Plug-in. Designers can now send files from these applications directly to ProofHQ to share, review and approve designs with all relevant stakeholders, saving substantial project time and effort. The integration neatly fills in the gap left by Adobe’s recent discontinuation of its CS Review tool for collaboration and approval of documents.
CtrlReviewHQ solves one of the biggest headaches for designers — managing the review and approval process.
Traditionally, review teams rely on email to circulate large PDF or JPEG attachments and email threads to provide feedback on design. Some have to print and manually ‘walk’ hard copy proofs to each reviewer. In either instance, collating comments and dealing with conflicting feedback can be very time-consuming for projects of all sizes.
With ProofHQ’s online proofing tools, review teams make markups and comments directly on proofs. Reviewers can see each other’s comments in real time and add replies to create focused, threaded discussions. With the ProofHQ integration, designers can now view ProofHQ comments right inside of Creative Suite, making it easy to implement change requests quickly.
This is much faster and more efficient than gathering handwritten notes on hard copy proofs. Also, online proofing frees company email from convoluted email threads, multiple CCs and large file attachments.
CtrlReviewHQ was created with the designer in mind. Inefficient workflows stemming from multiple hard copies and email threads are a major hindrance to delivering high-quality projects on time. This integration completely streamlines collaborative review and approval, maximizing speed-to-market and greatly reducing management effort for design and marketing teams.
