The risks of non-compliance in today’s marketing environment are higher than ever before. With admation’s built in features, you can have the confidence that you are meeting all your legal requirements.
Admation accommodates a tiered approval process, often a requirement in highly regulated industries.
For example, once the brand owner has approved marketing collateral, it is automatically sent to compliance and legal for approval, providing peace of mind that all stakeholder feedback has been incorporated.
Admation also supports teams, enabling anyone in the legal team to pick up an approval — colleagues can see that approval has been accepted and view the activity if required.
Admation offers two approval options: Anybody Approve and Everybody Approve.
Anybody Approve allows you to request approval from a group, with one person’s approval adequate for sign off.
Everybody Approve requires all stakeholders to approve marketing collateral before it can be finalised and signed-off, ready for market.
You no longer need to trawl through a thread of emails, meeting notes or try to recall phone conversations. With admation, you have access to a complete audit trail, allowing you to navigate between revisions, comments and feedback to see how marketing collateral has developed.
All communication, feedback and revisions are stored within the project folder and can be accessed at any time.
Secure Third Party Approvals
Admation makes it easy to obtain external stakeholder approval without security risk. You can invite an external partner to approve content through a secure email link. They are directed to a secure page displaying the approval content. External stakeholders can review comment or mark up files online, just like internal stakeholders. Like all feedback received, this is stored in the project approval history, keeping your audit trail complete
