A game changer for agencies

Ziflow has completely streamlined the post-production approval process. Clients are able to provide exact frame by frame feedback, highlight the amends and attach storyboards or reference files directly within the proof. This saves us a lot of time and helps avoid misunderstandings. It has been integral in our transition to remote working during the pandemic, as it allows all internal stakeholders to track the status of every proof in real time - as a result there was no disruption to our clients during the transition as we did not have to significantly change our ways of working.

Pros

The platform is extremely intuitive and easy to use and requires minimal training for clients and internal users. The workflow templates are extremely customizable and can be adapted for every client and media type and specific approval needs. It's also a great tool for internal reviews and QA and allows us to ensure utmost quality in everything we deliver.

Cons

I wish there was a way to further customise email notifications and only receive notifications for client decisions, as I receive a lot of unnecessary emails for internal reviews.

Very Accessible, Full-Function Proofing Software

With remote work becoming common place, we had to transition away from our conventional proofing method. We used shared Adobe PDFs for a while since it was essentially free (all our users are either on the creative suite or have acrobat). However, the limitations of not being on a platform designed for proofing were drastic.

Using Ziflow has improved the organization and speed of proofing. It has been a little slower to integrate client proofing into it as many of our clients are resistant to new things. However, as clients do jump on, they see the value and appreciate it (as do we! clearer comments!).

Pros

- Saving workflow templates for streamlined processes
- Robust text markers and annotation tools
- Automation for workflows

Cons

- The workflow method requires a little more thinking because it isn't necessarily a linear workflow. Multiple stages could be happening simultaneously which is a little confusing at times.
- I wish clients and team members who aren't paid users could have a dashboard for active proofs they are on. I know you can pay for lite users - but I wish this was an included feature in the top tier plan.

Alternatives Considered

ReviewStudio, ProofHub, PageProof, GoProof and GoVisually

Reasons for Choosing Ziflow

Looking for a true proofing platform (rather than just something that allowed commenting).

Reasons for Switching to Ziflow

It was software that meant our pain point without trying to do too much more. We already have a general project management software - I wasn't looking for something that required duplication of that part of work. Just a platform for proofing that excelled in that area. Ziflow is that at a reasonable price.

It's not bad

Overall it has been fine, not great but not bad.

Pros

It's fairly easy to use overall, there are some nuances to get used to.

Cons

You are unable to route a website via the software which makes it a bit difficult if you have those projects.

ZiFlow makes the project review process painless

ZiFLow has completely eliminated the need for paper proofs. The process of routing projects for review and markup has become more efficient. Also the online platform doesn't hog my bandwidth. which allows me to keep working while in the review.

Pros

The user interface is easy to understand. My team was able to hit the ground running when we switched to ZiFlow. Color coding of comments and status tagging allow us to easily recognize who is asking commenting and who needs to engage a comment.

Cons

Sometimes comment can be hindered when stage permissions wouldn't allow a user to address something that was actionable after their stage had officially closed.

A single solution for many channels

Professional and really know their product and the market. They are constantly developing new features which they actively ask my team about and respond quickly.

Pros

I knew the developers of Ziflow from their previous product. I tried several other products and found the customer service just didn't compare.

This is a simple product that proofs all my work from scripts and storyboards, to films and animations.

Cons

I'd like a dark mode layout to match our other apps (in video we like it darker for practical reasons). I'd like it to integrate into MS Teams and a better mobile UX.

Alternatives Considered

Frame.io

Reasons for Choosing Ziflow

Customer service and quality of the product. Workfront wasn't flexible and was expensive.

Switched From

Adobe Workfront

Reasons for Switching to Ziflow

Frame IO at that time, although had some great integrations into some of our key software tools, didn't provide proofing for the breadth of channels I needed.
