Loftware Smartflow provides a collaborative and automated alternative to Excel for managing your packaging content as well the full scope of your artwork projects and changes. Curate content in Smartflow‘s master datasheets, which helps you organize and store re-usable content for all your products in a central location, and project datasheets, which collect and store content tied to one specific artwork project. Because master datasheets store content independently of projects, it is easy to re-use collected content in multiple packaging artwork projects.
Datasheets give you an ‘at a glance’ overview of all associated projects for better visibility and project management. You can create, edit, approve and source text and images from both master datasheets and project datasheets, reducing the time to develop new artworks by using already approved content. You can store any type of data and define any type of data structure. And you can quickly generate new artwork projects with pre-approved content selected from master datasheets.
Flexible workflows enable both internal and external partners to collaborate on the collection, editing and approval of content. Version control helps ensure accuracy and prevents the use of unapproved materials downstream during the artwork development process. Datasheets’ easy-to-read format lets you collaborate with others while capturing all comments and changes in an auditable history. You can also raise the visibility of key projects by enabling internal and external stakeholders to receive project updates.
Import content from Excel worksheets or CSV files into Smartflow to convert static, siloed project cover sheets into collaborative datasheets that are both dynamic and accessible from anywhere.
