As more and more businesses are getting aware of using designs and graphics for their brand promotion, they are undertaking design-centric projects for which they have to approach their clients and stakeholders to get the necessary budget and other resources. These design projects on their execution would help in creation of brand-friendly designs in a limited time span with optimum usage of allocated resources.

Deadline and Feedback Management on Design Projects
Manually documenting, remembering and keeping track of diverse set of design requirements is not easy. Due to work pressure, the designers may fail to remember design deadlines of some of the clients and fail to deliver them on time. This harms a business considerably as its project fails to complete on time and it suffers economic and other losses. Also the reputation of the designer gets drastically affected and he may start losing clients and business.
Apart from this, designers face a difficulty in obtaining accurate and timely feedback over designs from their clients and customers. If they try to use emails for sending designs to their clients, they face a harrowing time as emails do not support various file types that are often used for creating designs. Moreover, they do not allow transfer of big sized files, consequently such files cannot be smoothly transferred or shared.
Due to such limitations of emails, designs tend to get delayed which causes problems for both the designers and their clients and customers.
So designers have to look for some new and enterprising tools that allow smooth transfer of files and through which they can elicit feedback in a fast and accurate manner.
