Faster workflow and great customer service

2019-09-25

Overall our teams experience with GoProof has been great, we've had a few hick-ups but their customer service team are great at resolving these issues, quick.

Pros

Cons

I feel there are a few app interface tweaks that could be made to make it easier for the user to navigate and use.

Very helpful When there are many reviewers

2019-09-24

No more sending PDFs to a bunch of editors and loosing track of what version you are working on.

Pros

All of the edits comeback in one file in Indesign or you can access them from the web when your not at your work computer.

Cons

In the comments from editors interface pages you can't see the name of the file.

Thanks for the great feedback and comments David! We're pleased to say there is a way to see the file name in the web interface. If you click the Proof Status button top-left (it will say 'In Review' for example), it drops down details about the proof, including the file name. Hope that's what you need!

Good software

2019-09-24

GoProof is good software and it gets the job done. It has a lot of good features that can appeal to a wide variety of uses.

Pros

Additionally, being able to comment and have discussion in the comment section is very useful.

Cons

The UI is clunky and a lot of actions require too many clicks to accomplish.

Excellent Proofing Platform

2019-10-07

Overall a very positive experience with the platform.

Pros

It works really well with the Adobe Suite and our clients have been able to use it without issue.

Cons

The user management is a bit fiddly and you feel like you're having to work around it to make a good agency workflow (without running up big costs).

In-House Design Team Uses Daily

2019-10-07

Designers find they can move through edits quicker with more clarity and project managers feel more in control of the review process.

Pros

The collaborators and history tabs put control in the project manager's hands for adding reviewers and vetting all comments. Our designers are not relied upon for moving projects to all reviewers any longer.

Cons

My dashboard isn't very helpful and isn't customizable to my needs.

Bidvest Soho Moving Forward

2019-10-01

GoProof has streamlined the workflow process, eliminated PDF and asset file issues and bridged the gap between communication with our clients.

Pros

Faster Turnaround time, Release the deadline pressure, An easier path to final sign off, Interactive and accurate feedback, A more enjoyable proofing process, Crystal clear annotations and comments

Cons

The Insights report system needs a bit more work as this function is not that accurate in terms of what we would like to achieve out to the reports system.

CHL GoProof Review

2019-10-08

Using GoProof is very straightforward and has really streamlined our workflow!

Pros

I like how multiple users/reviewers can review and comment on documents for a more dynamic discussion.

Cons

As a publisher, I don't like the fact that I don't have the option to go back the first page, when uploading a new proof, in case I mistitled a Proof, want to change the client, or add additional files.

GoProof for Creative workflow

2019-10-03

We had a few hiccups with the Text edit functionality but overall it has had a very positive impact on our proofing workflow and cut costs for us enabling us to move to an almost completely digital proofing workflow from a intensive print and paper routing routine.

Pros

It essentially sends a Indesign proof to the proofers and has text edit functionality that can be simply applied by our designers when proof changes are requested.

Cons

We've had some conflicts with the Text editing functionality and another plug in we use that makes it not tase useful that we had initially thought it would be.

2019-09-24

Again, I'd like to see the user interface updated (see "Cons:") and additional features added (see "Cons").

Pros

Cons

This is a decent solution for proofing

2019-09-24

We really like using the software, I have more issues with it than our proofers because I have to manage the back end. Everyone who uses it seems to get the hang pretty quickly. It has sped up our process and made things more transparent.

Pros

I like that the software is easy to teach, it solves a lot of our proofing issues, it integrates with InDesign, it allows for all edits in one spot.

Cons

Managing collaborators is clunky, it sends a lot of notification emails, I wish I could save collaborators so I can bulk add them instead of manually putting them on to the proof.

Right out of Creative Cloud and into reviewers hands

2019-08-12

Also, we're making fewer errors, if there's a comment, it's easy for us to see what's been addressed and what has not.

Pros

I love that our creators can push their work directly from the Creative Cloud software to their reviewers and access their proofs in the software, no need to toggle to a different program to read the needed changes.

Cons

For big files, publishing the proof can lag.

Goproof Review

2019-09-24

Very good, its really helped us manage the businesses requirements from the studio.

Pros

It's simple to use, everyone brought into it very quickly. Has previous versions saved, and its adobe plugin with done/not done was a great add-on.

Cons

It doesn't seem to like it, and glitches with people not receiving notifications. I wish that we could upload MS Excel/word/ppt files to go proof to get briefing proof checked, then add artworks to the same project, so we can track projects.

Mike's GoProof Review

2019-10-03

Reduces frustrating part of graphic design to a simple/efficient process.

Pros

Being able to add collaborators in and out at any point is very convenient. Comments are clear and easy to navigate.

Cons

Project image resolution is very low. When comment markers are close together, it's hard to select the "back" one.

Proofing Software for the Future

2019-09-30

Overall 80-90 percent of our clients have an easy time using the comments, attaching files and viewing their projects to sign off, which is higher than most.

Pros

I like the custom options for sending proofs, being able to see when clients have viewed the proofs and the availability to update all these things on the fly.

Cons

Some less tech savvey clients have a hard time going from their email to the proof, some clients need to have their hand held during the process or to have a sales rep take over completely.

Good proofing software, but not without some flaws.

2019-09-24

It should be a main link on the dashboard to go right to archiving projects, also, a mass-archive feature.

Pros

. • I think the annotation tools are robust. • When customers get use to using it, they like it. • I like that it allows customers to issue an "official" approval or rejection.

Cons

I dislike having to click through 3+ pages to do a task that should be easily available from the dashboard (maybe just a mass-archive button)

Possibly in a couple more years?

2019-09-24

The demo and the recommendation were outstanding. Once we started implementing the software. Quite buggy, features were not a rich as we were hoping. Customer service is across seas so you have to wait a bit for a response. Use is not as user-friendly as we were hoping.

Pros

Version control.

Cons

Customer service/software support. Integration with InDesign is pretty amazing but that is pretty much it.

Web Platform Ok, App Needs Work

2019-10-09

GoProof provides us an easy-to-use, central platform that allows us to efficiently communicate, collaborate and share creative that would otherwise have to be distributed via email.

Pros

The tool helps to keep our proofs organized by client and/or project type and it is very easy to use.

Cons

I also wish there was a check box of some sort next to each comment so edits can be marked completed once they've been made.

Great Product

2019-09-24

Overall very pleased with the product. Wish it had more customizations but I understand this is still a small company and hopefully those will happen later.

Pros

How easy it is to send clients design proofs without the extra emails in between. All comments and revisions are handled directly in InDesign.

Cons

It loads slowly - and sometimes you have to restart the Extension within your programs.

GoProof has made it much easier to communicate with clients and has removed a lot of the unnecessary bath and forth over email.

Pros

That the client can comment anywhere with any tool to make edits.

Cons

That you cannot reply to comments after the proof has been "signed off on" or when "changes has been requested"

GoProof review

2019-09-25

Generally speaking, its a great tool.

Pros

It's been especially useful for our European colleagues and it's meant all comments and markup are now consistent.

Cons

It took a while to figure out best practice for roles and responsibilities. Some users were frustrated by being locked out of proofs they wanted to review when another gatekeeper had already signed a job off.
