Working in a fast-paced office leaves little time for the hassles associated with circulating documents for approval or review. Unfortunately, whether your company is big or small, everyone has dealt with the stress of sending out an important proposal or presentation for feedback, only to find that the document has been misplaced or held up along the way. Everyone, that is, except those who have already discovered Backboard.
Backboard is an application that helps people stay organized at the office by allowing users to securely send files to coworkers for real-time feedback or approval. The way it works is simple. After signing up, you can upload a brochure, graphic, or presentation to Backboard—there’s no need to worry about the type of file, since Backboard works with all the common formats. After answering a few simple questions, you can then input email addresses for everyone who you’d like to review the document. Your colleagues will be sent an email with a link to your document at Backboard, where they will then be able to leave their own comments.
Because your document is being stored online, there is no need to worry about anyone altering its content or losing the file altogether. And because all of your colleagues are leaving their comments in one centralized location, there is no need to compile the edits from dozens of emails and handwritten notes. Instead, you are presented with one easy-to-read Backboard page that features everyone’s feedback scrolling alongside the original document itself. Not only that, but Backboard also has dozens of other features like document security, deadline notifications, and activity alerts that help to organize and simplify your daily life.
