Powerful proofing tools and faster approvals on digital files
Ashore makes PDF proofing online a fast and stress-free process for you and your approvers. As much as can be possible, we take the proofing process out of email and organize all materials – proofs, versions, feedback and approvals – in a central, cloud-based location for your team.
You’ll no longer need to track down approvers and send numerous follow-up emails. With Ashore, your online proofing process is automated! To begin, you simply upload your PDF (Ashore supports videos, images, HTML and more, as well), and then choose your workflow. In Ashore, workflows can be created and saved to use over and over again. A workflow contains all the approvers a proof will need to go through to get final approval. Ashore automatically delivers your proof to the next approver in the sequence with no input from you. Automatic reminders can be set to your preference to keep things moving along. The system will notify you of status changes along the way. To proof, each approver clicks on the link in the email Ashore sends them, and they can immediately get started – no login or account required. Annotation and markup tools such as arrows and boxes help approvers better articulate what they’re trying to say. All comments are tied to a specific point on the proof, keeping all feedback in context. When you know exactly what they want, you’ll get your projects done much faster with less revisions! As part of our fleet of Ashore users, we’ve given you a lot of leeway to customize the process to your specifications. You can give your approvers permission for things including downloading the proof or viewing other approver comments.
You can also add non-approvers from your team who need to stay updated on the approval status of proofs. Even when you’re sending a proof, you have several options. You can send to one or more people at once for a more collaborative experience, and you don’t even have to send a proof as yourself. With the ability to modify the sender, you can send proofs on behalf of other users, shoring up another loophole in your workflows. 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 Ashore. Email templates can even be saved and quickly reused in the future.

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
