Overall Satisfaction with Ziflow

We use Ziflow to route projects through team members, including markups, queries, responses, direction, and sign-off. We rely on it for process and who follows who during the route. It replaces job folders where each team member would have to manually mark up each comment and other electronic routing systems like ProofHQ.
  • Commenting — easy to add comments, edit them (as long as you have not commented after the one you'd like to edit), and reply to others
  • Label each comment STET, Accept, Reject so the relevant team member knows how to address
  • Customizable notifications
  • Zoom feature could be more intuitive
  • Seeing the order of who is included in the route would be nice
  • Better copy/paste functionality
  • Project due date/time
  • Improved productivity
  • Seamless workflow
  • Meet client deadlines
  • Time saved
  • All team members aligned
Infinitely. The review process and time it takes to route jobs and resolves queries to approve the position are significantly reduced. Overall, this minimizes the time it takes to get to the final supported version that can be sent to the client for approval. Once that is done, a team member goes in and marks the requested changes, which the team then reviews and acts on.
This is where Ziflow really shines. It makes it hard for the team to not be on the same page since we are all reviewing the same version in real-time (in the proper order). It also allows you to tag/mention, someone if you have a specific comment or query for them.

Do you think Ziflow delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Did Ziflow live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Ziflow go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Ziflow again?

Yes

Workfront is better in layout and legibility, but Ziflow is not far behind. In all other aspects, Ziflow wins by a landslide. Workfront also has additional features, like seeing what you have due today, this week, etc. Ziflow may want to consider it an option, although sometimes this feature limits your outlook.
Ziflow is well suited to route projects to a team where comments are needed to reconcile and address. It's an excellent tool for a side-by-side comparison to see if analyses were implemented correctly. Version control is also very seamless with Ziflow. You can answer colleagues' queries, STET, or accept them. And you're always able to double-check against any previous version.
