Smartflow’s advanced workflow capabilities enable you to plan and manage packaging artwork more effectively from initial project development through to final approvals. Smartflow offers complete flexibility enabling business users to simply configure workflows to support any current processes including existing graphics production workflows that involve design, review and artwork approvals.
You can offer controlled access to a wide range of stakeholders that need to participate in your workflow, including external partners, printers, design shops, marketing teams, legal experts, and so on. Smartflow’s task tracking capability lets you clearly identify projects that are behind schedule or at risk of running late, enabling you to take corrective action proactively.
You can use email notifications to ensure your tasks are executed in an efficient and effective manner and a user-friendly dashboard provides a quick and easy glimpse of a project’s status. Smartflow helps you track complex projects with many components along a critical path and enables you to dynamically reschedule tasks if necessary. An intuitive “Traffic Light” system indicates Red, Amber, Green (RAG) status so you can quickly and easily determine whether your projects are on schedule.
Smartflow supports concurrent and serial workflows, including multi-level artwork projects so you can break out a master project with an unlimited amount of subordinate projects, each having their own independent workflows. By breaking projects into smaller elements Smartflow offers you better visibility, allowing you to quickly identify bottlenecks.
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.
