We work with a lot of cross functional teams, so it is nice to have them review things on their own and provide feedback all in the one place for our team to review. It helps cut back on meetings and emails full of feedback that gets lost. This is especially helpful when we are working on our catalogs. We do reviews on Ziflow all the way from rough layouts to proofreading.

I would recommend ZiFlow to anyone who needs multiple assets reviewed by multiple parties. For me, ZiFlow allows my work to be reviewed by multiple people. They can reply and comment on the proof and to each other. They can also tag each other which takes over my role as the middle man. I can also choose to stay in the loop throughout this communication with customizable e-mail alerts.

Ziflow is a great program for all our proofing needs. Creating a proof is as easy as dragging it over. To add someone, you can just start typing an email and it'll pick up from an address book and you can click the name. You can also add multiple people to one tag and have them all added at once to a proof. You can also create templates with people already added to various stages to really speed up the process of adding people to proofs. The stage function itself is also great for having multiple approvals from multiple stages instead of creating new proofs after each person approves.

Ziflow is a wonderful tool for me, I upload a proof, add all necessary people in stages for review and it takes the burden off me to send it to all appropriate people each stage. The annotations make creative comments more clear and I can check off each one as I complete them.

Great proofing software and I have tried many of them, great for easily sending files to clients and collecting feedback. It is well fitted for sending designs (print and web) for review to clients, especially when there are multiple stakeholders involved as they can all easily look at the same file and make comments simultaneously. It could also be used for in-house approvals and reviews.

We create digital renderings; it is perfect for still renderings or floor plans to review and make edits. A challenge we had was clients not being able to tell what the changes have been, but Ziflow's compare mode has eliminated this, and it's very clear what changes happen. However, sometimes, we change the overall lighting to a rendering, and when using auto-compare, it makes the entire new version all red.

Being able to track who made what decision and/or comment and also when is vital. Also by removing any ambiguity on change requests, especially when using the markup tools, means even the most complex changes are clear and we can proceed with confidence to the next project stage. It is also nice to be able to upload a file to assist with comments and what they specifically refer to.

Ziflow is a great tool to use when collaborating with internal and/or external parties on editing large documents. We hire freelancer proof-readers to review important files, that way we're clear of any grammatical errors before sharing with Clients. Outside of proofreading, I haven't had to use other features of Ziflow much, but I would love to learn other ways to incorporate it in our everyday work flow!

Ziflow has been great when routing print projects, meaning things going to a print house but can also be used in a digital PDF platform. Ziflow has allowed our organization to move through work at a fast pace and involve multiple teams in the creative process. Ziflow gives all the teams the access to let their voice be heard during content development and decision making of a projects life.

Ziflow is well suited for multi-stakeholder reviews, iterative design and creative workflows, and collaboration with remote teams. However, it may be less appropriate for simple and informal reviews, and highly regulated industries with strict security requirements.

When we have created a visual image for a client with lots of detail. Ziflow allows client to precisely comment on certain things. I have used Ziflow for proofing an audio file instead of a visual one and found this slightly more difficult to navigate.

When we have several proofs under the same project, the new interface makes a little bit difficult to find each version, the thumbnails don't show the aspect ratio (as the old interface did). Also the name of the proofs appear cut when the title is long. On the other hand, the dashboard shows clearly each stage of approval, which makes very simple managing several proofs.

Ziflow is very well suited to any Marketing department that has inputs, changes, comments and suggestions coming in from multiple different contributors. Even if there are not multiple contributors, the ability to easily mark up a proof is way better than trying to do the same thing in a program like Acrobat

In my case I only use Ziflow to upload proofs to the brand, is very easy to use although at the beginning you can find it tricky but then you will get used to it. I will like to learn of other things that Ziflow can do instead of only upload proof that is my case only, will be helpful to see its potential to the fullest.

Ziflow is well suited for publishing processes of all nature - from print products to online publications and even media-enriched publications. It is great for working on the go and submitting notes for immediate feedback using the in-built communication capabilities. I have not found scenarios where Ziflow could be considered not appropriate, given that the scope of Ziflow is very precise and fills a specific niche in the market.

Ziflow is best suited for medium to large organizations, the kind where 5 or more people from different departments will be commenting on a proof, projects are created via briefs/dockets that are then assigned to another department, projects are likely to go through multiple revisions because the people who initially assigned the work are not graphically inclined, etc. For freelance designers who are dealing with just one client at a time, it would be overkill.

It is best suited for approval processes and file sharing when commenting is required from multiple sources. This is what the software was made for and does it without any hassle or problems. This system for monitoring which files still need to be approved, which are progressing and which are completed is very straightforward and doesn’t require any in-depth training.

It's good for sharing proofs to different users. Allowing users to comment at a specific time in a video proof. Ziflow also allows users to create proofs of different mediums like PDFs. It's well suited for environments that require a team of people to review a project before it's finalized.

I have not used for video presentation, but it seems like the collaborative effort would require a higher learning curve. But for print or web media, it provides an excellent source for proofing and feedback from clients. Especially since they are not required to create their own account.
