Get a powerful proofing tool and automate your approval process
Ashore makes proofing online a streamlined and stress-free process for you and your approvers. As much as can be possible, we take proofing out of email and arrange all information – proofs, versions, feedback and approvals – in one, cloud-based location.
You’ll no longer need to hunt down feedback or send numerous follow-up emails to your approvers. Our free online proofing software automates the approval process for you!! To get started, simply upload your proof – Ashore supports videos, images, HTML and more – and designate a workflow. In Ashore, workflows can be created and saved for repeated use in the future. Workflows contain all the approvers that a proof will need to go through to reach final approval. Ashore automatically delivers your proof to the next approver in the sequence with no input from you. Automated reminders keep things moving along, and the system will notify you of status changes along the way. You are not required to use a workflow, either. You can send to a single approver or to a group of approvers at the same time. With Ashore, approvers have it easy.
To review a proof, they follow the link in the email Ashore sends them and immediately get started – no login or account needed. Annotation and markup tools such as arrows and boxes help approvers better articulate their feedback. All comments are tied to a specific point on the proof, putting feedback in context and reducing confusion. When you know exactly what they want, you’ll get your projects done much faster with less revisions! As part of our fleet of users, you have a lot of leeway to customize the process in Ashore. You control approver permissions for abilities including downloading the proof or viewing other approver comments. You also have the option to add non-approvers from your team who need to stay updated to proofs. With the ability to modify the sender, you can send proofs on behalf of other users, closing up one more hole in your workflow. The customization doesn’t end there. With the ability to white-label our platform, your approvers will think they’re proofing on your own proprietary software. Custom email signatures and email templates give you flexibility in deciding what your approvers see when they open emails sent from within Ashore. Email templates can even be saved and quickly reused in the future.
Ashore has much more in store for you, and getting started with us is absolutely free. Just sign up for a forever free account and discover how the proofing process was meant to be!
Projects get approved faster in Ashore! Our automation tools allow your team to set up and save flexible workflows for every kind of proof. Just add your approval stages, select approvers, and append your white-labeled email templates.
When you start a workflow on a proof, every approver in stage one will receive an email asking for their review. When all users have approved the proof, it will automatically be sent to the next stage. If anyone forgets to review the proof, we’ll automatically remind them!
Your approvers don’t need to know who we are. Ashore allows you to white-label every part of our software that interfaces with your approvers — custom domains, logos, integrated email, and custom styles on your review dashboards. Now you can truly make the proofing process your own and give your approvers a curated experience from start to finish.
We track everything automatically. You have a beautiful (exportable!) audit log of every approver’s decision, comment, email and new version. Keep your proofs color-coded, taggable, and well organized.View More
Require your approvers to sign off on your custom checklists before they can submit a decision on a proof. Add requirements like, “I approve this to go live” or “I have checked for spelling and errors.”View More
