The SkyDox platform ensures that all parties are updating or viewing a single version of a document which means that all individuals work on the most recent document at all times, eliminating; duplication of work effort, the need to deal with clashing feedback and versioning issues. This also reduces the cost of storage and networking.

By assigning folder and document level access rights in the client workspace, agencies can also prevent the downloading or passing on confidential files such as rate cards and intellectual property to another party without authorization while still allowing users to benefit from document centric collaboration. The ability to track document access and viewing at a page level also allows the agency to determine if and when the document was opened, who it was shared with and which pages third parties spent most time on. This unprecedented level of detail helps agencies prepare for commercial discussions and follow up, track and action amendments accurately.

What's more we allow agencies to track client activity surrounding documents, and evolve them in real time and ultimately drive client satisfaction.”
