The best review tool so far

We easily integrated the software into our workflow. Online chats and reporting made our life easier and we do not spend much time on decisions or communication. Also, compare modes prevent us from making mistakes. And we started to look more professional with Approval Studio.

Out of all artwork review tools that we checked, Approval Studio has the best price to quality ratio

1. It has helped to streamline the process of creating media for customers, negotiating between our agency, the Graphics Team and the customer

2. It has helped us obtain feedback and approvals.

3. Multi language. Important!

4. Ease of use. Must be easy for the customer to interface with the media.

5. we reviewed (at least thirty) software options, it had the most comprehensive list of features.

What do you dislike?

The software is new but adding new features all the time

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has solved a tedious process for us getting approvals and managing the creation of media.

"An ultimate solution to all design proofing issues"

What do you like best?

Approval Studio is a decent tool that has multiple markup tools and - the main value for us - 4 compare modes that will not allow you to miss the smallest details. Also, my PM loves detailed proof reports that he uses for documentation. As for cooperation with clients, they like the tool as well because leaving feedback takes only several minutes.

What do you dislike?

Nothing special. Maybe, a little bit boring UI.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you work with visual assets this tool is a must for you.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Approval Studio helps us to receive quick and precise feedback about artworks and visual assets and proof them really fast. As for the benefits, the main advantage that came after my company started using Approval Studio is saved time. Thus, we cut down on money spent on waiting for decisions. Also, huge benefits are versioning and project management - we know that everything the team needs is in one place. This really optimizes workflow.

"An ultimate solution to all design proofing issues"

What do you like best?

Approval Studio has decent mark-up possibilities for graphic assets review. However, the best part of the app is great compare modes that help control versions and track changes applied to the designs - I have never seen anything similar in any other program. Also, support of multiple languages not only within the app but also in project reports makes it much easier to communicate with external reviewers from different countries.

What do you dislike?

At first, we had to check the app itself regularly to track the progress of the project or rely on email notifications which is not always convenient. However, the recent release of Slack integration solved this problem, and now we get all our project updates in a special channel.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Although our company does not work with graphics very often, we know for sure that Approval Studio is the app we will use whenever we need to proof designs.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Approval Studio helped our team to set a proper workflow for our image proofing process. It is hard to imagine any kind of marketing strategy without catchy design, and whenever we have to work with designers, we do not need to waste tons of time approving graphics for our content via email or messengers. What is more, detailed reports help us understand which part of the workflow was problematic and plan our future projects better.

"Design projects are much easier to manage now"

What do you like best?

Annotations of different shapes are very convenient. Comments in review tool update online, so you can have a discussion right there, and you do not need to refresh the page all the time to see the replies.

What do you dislike?

It’s about chats as well - each time someone added a comment, they shifted beyond the right side of the screen, but it seems they fixed it with the latest release.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

When you need to proof any graphical content, Approval Studio will be very helpful to you. It is mostly for design projects but can also be used for anything that needs images proofing.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use a lot of visual content for our marketing, and Approval Studio helped us to increase its quality. Our marketing department doesn’t need to email images to each other or send them to group chats, and no feedback is lost in the process.

"Quick design review"

What do you like best?

sharing is the best here, I can share and approve graphic ads with my customers in just few clicks.

What do you dislike?

I would add the color picker and ruler to the tool

Recommendations to others considering the product:

A good choice if you need to quickly review your design with multiple customers

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Approval Studio I have a single place to review artwork with my customers, so there is less mess in communication. The app interface is intuitive enough for me to find the neccessary features without reading FAQs and what's more important it's totally obvious for my clients. The tool also has a change history, it helped me once when disputing with the client.

"One place to rule them all"

What do you like best?

As a marketing specialist, I work a lot with our creative department. Designers are quite often busy, so I have to do my own creatives and their variations. Still, I cannot launch them unapproved, and banners are quite complicated - there have to be lots of A/B tests, localizations, resizes, and etc. Approval Studio has everything in one place, so you can

What do you dislike?

Nothing in particular, the app works great so far.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We now work much faster than we used to, there are less misunderstandings.

"No more misunderstanding within team"

What do you like best?

How to reduce miscommunication when you have many people working on one artwork? Right, gather them in one place and discuss! Approval Studio allows doing this with on-page proofs. Also, you can see live what each participant points on.

What do you dislike?

No video support but this is not so important. Rather good bonus.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Low prices, rich set of tools, and 24/7 support. We are using Approval Studio only several months but I love it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problem of miscommunication. We always had problems when discussing landings because everyone speaks about one thing but with different words. Now we just open the tool and show what we think on the mockup. The number of versions before the release decreased to 2-3.
