The main objective of this tool is to improve the quality of publications by ensuring their compliance with company standards and policies.

This publication approval tool is designed to allow users to manage the approval process effectively and in real time. Another major advantage is that this PAT application is 'built-in' to the platform and directly linked to the PIM and DAM. This means that changes can be made directly in the databases ( if the user has the right to do so). In other words, this module saves a considerable amount of time when correcting content, while keeping the people concerned informed via a chat.


  1. The Publication Approval Tool module allows users to submit their content for review and approval by designated managers.
    Publications may be documents, catalogues, magazines, presentations or any other type of medium intended for distribution inside or outside the company.
  2. The tool also offers a monitoring feature that allows users to track the progress of their publications (revisions) and receive comments and suggestions for improving their content (annotations).
    The PAT also enables managers to approve or disapprove publications in terms of their relevance, quality and compliance with the company's standards and graphic charters.

  3. In summary, the Approval Tool publication is an essential module which aims to guarantee the quality and compliance of publications within a company. It improves internal and external communication by ensuring that publications are professional, precise and in accordance with established standards.
