Overall Satisfaction with Ziflow

It is used within a segment of our business spanning several departments as well as outside clients. With so many individuals reviewing documents this helps us consolidate feedback, clearly state deadlines and verify updates have been made.
  • Feedback consolidation.
  • Deadline management.
  • Quality assurance checks.
  • Some of the automated features seem like they should be available for business accounts instead of enterprise only.
  • Website proofing is still a little glitchy.
  • There should be a way for reviewers to see a list of proof waiting for them without needing to pay for an additional license.

Workfront - Workfront asked for too much per user just to use their proofing tool.
PageProof - User interface wasn't as good.
GoProof - No side by side comparison, limited file type support.
Not included in the available services:
Aproove - Flash based interface, not intuitive, mark up tools were not as robust.
Review Studio - Didn't support web page proofs, not intuitive UX, was not easy to check off comments as the revisions were complete.
Ideal for any team that needs to garner feedback from multiple individuals on a specific deadline.

Evaluating Ziflow and Competitors

Yes - We used to use Workfront Proof. While that proofing tool is great, it's tied to Workfront's Project Management system. We were no longer going to be using the project management system and the cost for only the proofing tool was too high. When we started our search for a replacement we looked at a handful of other systems. The number of features, ease of use and overall support is what made us select Ziflow.
  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
We have a lot of internal users and external clients who need to interface with the proofing tool. Ultimately, the proofing system needed to be intuitive and easy to manage. While there were a few worthwhile options to pursue, overall Ziflow supported more file types, had a more intuitive interface/system, and made it easy for us to get up and running quickly.
I don't know that we would change anything. We created a list of the most important factors we wanted in a proofing system so that we could compare each tool against the same criteria. Each individual factor was rated on a scale from 1-10. Once we got through scoring all of the various tools we reviewed Ziflow was the clear front runner, ranking fairly high in each of the important factors for us: file support, version control, web page review, mark up tools, approval workflow, due date scheduling, external review, and revision tracking.
