In our small membership-based organization, we have many stakeholders both internally and externally. GoProof doesn't require accounts and is extremely user friendly. I find even the most technology-hesitant person is comfortable using GoProof. Many within my company take advantage of a flexible schedule, but that means reviewing marketing projects under deadlines can be tricky. GoProof can be easily accessed and proofs quickly reviewed. The system then notifies all stakeholders of updates so fewer emails need to be sent. It's much more efficient and I find work is completed much faster.

as already explained this software only does branching... the rest is really poor and basic

Usability
Abstract
Abstract has a difficult learning curve. If a feature-branch workflow is new to you, then it will take some getting used to. They make a lot of updates to the interface and these feature releases get ahead of their documentation. They rely heavily on an excellent customer support team and are present on various Slack channels to help design professionals with issues.

Support Rating
Abstract
Abstract by nature is complex and has to respond to whatever changes in Sketch. So there are frequent issues. Support can be slow to respond and are not always helpful, but they are quick to find and patch the bugs. Overall, it's not the best support, but it hasn't been detrimental.

I prefer GoProof over PageProof. GoProof has a more user-friendly layout and workflow. PageProof has many functions hidden on the screen so it's not as simple to understand. One of the features, in particular, adding other reviewers, is too complicated with PageProof and I am never sure if I am doing it correctly. GoProof allows proofs to be removed by an administrator no matter the status of the creator. With PageProof, I have proofs sitting in my inbox for months that were unfinished for a reason but I can't remove them. PageProof does allow emails and webpage to be sent through the system to review function and design. It's a really great feature that I wish GoProof had.
