What do you like best?
Instead of sending the five reviewers at a client a PDF of each Illustrator file, and trying to combine the different feedback in return, GoProof makes that process a lot smoother.
What do you dislike?
The feature only available in the Enterprise version which enables you to send a proof to your client who can actually edit the type in their browser, preview the results, and send it back to you. You can then apply their edits to your file, eliminating the need to do the edits for them. However, this is a little bit out of my budget for now.
Recommendations to others considering the product
GoProof saves a lot of time. It streamlines everything and takes out missing files and misunderstandings. It’s an overall better way to communicate.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Time spent exporting PDFs, naming and tracking different PDF versions, sending PDFS that are too big, can be hard to track feedback, often outdated PDF versions and having to switch back and forth between the PDF and InDesign or Illustrator to make edits. The benefit of GoProof is that it addresses all the familiar PDF workflow problems above and allows anyone in the workflow process to view, discuss, comment, markup, and sign off on proofs that you share directly from a panel.
