Loftware Smartflow provides a collaborative and automated alternative to Excel for managing your full scope of artwork projects and changes. Import your manually intensive and error prone Excel worksheets into Smartflow to convert static, siloed project cover sheets into collaborative ‘datasheets’ that are both dynamic and accessible from anywhere. Keep your content and workload organized with the ability to make comments and have discussions about projects while capturing the entire project’s audit trail. You can also raise the visibility of key projects by enabling internal and external stakeholders to receive project updates.
Gain an overview at a glance of all existing projects for better visibility and project management. Smartflow lets you create, edit, approve and source content from datasheets and datasheet content can be flowed directly into artwork templates. Organize content and plan your workload to manage your time and resources better than ever before. Store any type of data and define any type of data structure while keeping all project datasheets centrally linked.
Smartflow’s datasheets can be driven by whatever workflow you need. Send them to partners to fill in specific SKUs and other pertinent information (e.g. Pack Copy, Barcodes, Dielines etc.). Get alerts about schedules and missed deadlines to keep projects on track. Highlight any changes by role, timeframe or cycle. Keep projects under control as needed with business logic. Approve and lock project data to eliminate risk of error.
As packaging artwork becomes more important to the product lifecycle, it is more important than ever to manage the process effectively. Delays in delivering accurate and approved packaging artwork have a huge impact on your time to market. A highly configurable and collaborative Artwork Management Solution will help boost your competitive position.
