CHALEX Corp., the makers of SmartFlo solutions for business process orchestration and digital asset management, and Viki Solutions, developer of online proofing, approval workflow and custom enterprise solutions, today announced the integration of SmartFlo with Vproof to unify the tasks and tools for managing any business process workflow. The integrated solution is offered in both Cloud and hybrid configurations for graphic production workgroups and projects of any size. The SaaS application includes the Fotolia and SmartFlo DAM service with access to over 15,000,000 royalty free stock images.
"Vproof is the gold standard of online proofing solutions for the packaging industry and the SmartFlo SaaS integration makes it possible for even the smallest design firm to affordably implement Vproof in minutes," said Murray Oles, President of CHALEX. "Fotolia is the fastest growing stock image library on the web and every marketing department and ad agency will love the simplicity that the integration of these services provides for their production projects."
"We're excited to bring Vproof to the Cloud in partnership with CHALEX," added Afshin Mirmotahari, CEO of Viki Solutions. "They took full advantage of the Vproof API and implemented a rich and seamless integration with SmartFlo and Fotolia."
The combined solution establishes a virtual marketing communications platform that can be activated instantly with no capital outlay. The service routes virtual job bags with secure access to digital files through customer-designed workflow models. At any task, users can launch a Vproof session with one or more selected graphic files right from within their SmartFlo job or archive. Even occasional workflow participants can be assigned to review in Vproof through an intuitive email link.
The SmartFlo business network allows SaaS subscribers to manage distributed production processes and benefit from efficient interaction across enterprise workgroups with little to no IT requirements or investment. The SmartFlo and Vproof integration is also offered for traditional on-premises deployments. Fotolia users can add the advanced proofing capabilities of Vproof to their monthly SmartFlo DAM subscription.
