Take control of
your approval cycles!

Make packaging approvals up to 3 times shorter with the Share & Approve platform. Use the unique, cloud-based tool to upload, share, annotate and approve packaging and labels, in hyper realistic 3D.

Get rid of delays

Packaging approvals are often confusing and regularly cause production delays. It’s hard for an approver to envision a 2D design as if it were in 3D. Plus, there is no easy way to gather and interpret feedback from multiple stakeholders.

Enter Share & Approve!

  • State of the art viewer for accurate approval management
  • Easy to use – no user training required
  • Reduce approval cycles to days instead of weeks

Share your files

Simply drag and drop your files to share them with your colleagues and customers. You can upload and setup an approval cycle in only 4 clicks!

Review and annotate

Review & Annotate in 3D

Share & Approve is the only tool that allows you to review packaging in 3D using the actual production data. No structural CAD data is required!

Follow up on Approvals

Display some approval KPI’s like pending approvers, approval cycle length, rejection analysis... What’s more, as an approver, you can forward the approval to another user or email address. This person will be invited and becomes responsible for the approval.
