SAN MATEO, CA, April 18, 2017 – Webdam, a Shutterstock company (NYSE:SSTK) and a leader in digital asset management, today announced the launch of Workstream™, a workflow management solution built specifically for enterprise marketing and creative teams. Workstream™ aligns people, tasks and approvals, streamlining the entire creative development process including asset requests, creative briefs, collaborative reviews and approval routing.
As the demand for great content grows and the creative development process evolves and expands, teams can often find themselves working in a state of chaos: juggling more projects, receiving additional feedback and working on tighter deadlines. Workstream adds efficiency, transparency and accountability to the creative workflow with tools like precision proofing, commenting and automated approval routing enabling marketing and creative professionals to deliver high-quality projects on time.

With collaboration tools that channel input, build consensus and eliminate chaos, we are adding transparency and accountability to the creative workflow and helping teams master the creative process.”

- Build consensus for a project with configurable creative briefs and request forms.
- Streamline and expedite the review process with automated approval routing.
- Pinpoint feedback with precision proofing for greater clarity and transparency.
