Getting documents approved in a busy workflow can be cumbersome. Multiple review iterations and the need to distribute documents between all involved parties may hamper productivity and stop employees from focusing on what matters. GroupDocs.Annotation is the solution that can bring the document review process to a completely different dimension. It allows multiple parties to review and annotate a document online during conference review sessions. GroupDocs.Annotation works in such a way that users can upload a document on a web-page, invite colleagues, partners and customers to review it, add annotations and reply to others’ comments in real time. This eliminates the need of emailing documents back and forth between the involved parties, allows users to avoid excessive paperwork and get documents approved faster.
