Admation New MS Word Approvals transform the document review and approval process

Posted by Jodie Byass on Jul 20, 2022 9:34:14 AM

Imagine a world without MS Word. Or Excel and PowerPoint. It’s almost impossible. 

Without a doubt, MS Word and the Office 365 suite continues to be the most popular document creation software.  As a standalone cloud service, or as a part of Microsoft Teams, with its more collaborative bent, it is a tool we all rely on, daily. 

However,  despite our dependency on these tools are, they are often inadequate for real world scenarios. Let’s look at companies that use MS Word to create assets. For example, heavily regulated industries such as insurance and financial services produce reams of product documentation.

Not only must a document go through a stringent approval and compliance process, every change must be logged and recorded in an audit trail.
