Documents, Images, Drawings, Reports, Research Review Solution

Research is undertaken by corporate organisations, government bodies, professional institutes and learning organisations to find solutions to complex market and societal needs.


Document Collaboration

The review process requires collaboration, is time consuming and benefits from peer review, but is hindered by excessive emails, multiple users making changes to the same document separately, lack of cohesion, poor alerting, lack of expert availability, inability to easily delegate reviews, lack of transparency and inability to audit activity.


Meet Deadlines

Soutron Document Review helps your team keep track of documents to ensure deadlines are met using automated alerts. Emails are reduced to the minimum and document creation is simplified and made faster.


Monitor the Process

Save time when submitting articles for review or reviewing others’ content by having a simple tool to view and monitor status and actions. Changes made to a Document as it proceeds through the review process are clearly and easily assimilated, saving time at the end of the process in publishing findings.

Organisations carry out research, written up in documented form as articles, that are then offered for comment, peer review and approval for publishing. In so doing, knowledge is shared faster to improve access to research findings. Research teams can share ideas more easily in an efficient process that includes expert opinion and critical review of research.

Faster, Targeted Document Reviews

The time taken for a document to be ready for publication is reduced by adopting automated workflows for document review of articles and research submissions. Deadlines can be monitored, reviewing content is faster and easier and experts can be selected and alerted based on metadata describing document content.

Soutron Document Review is deployed as a secure, fully web-based solution in the Cloud together with Soutron’s powerful and flexible Search Portal technology. The application can be integrated seamlessly with Soutron’s Library and Archive Management application to provide a complete online publishing and archival solution.

Document Review for Research

Speed the process of creating Research documents in a simple easy to use way. Soutron Document Review allows reviewers to work on the same document in an efficient and controlled process and eliminates the most labour-intensive aspects associated with structured document reviews.

Document Review for Editorial

Assign a document, image, video or file for review to your peer group, set the workflow in Soutron and sit back while Soutron Document Review automates the process to the team. Logically passing it round each user, one at a time allowing them to add their own comments and edits before it is finally returned to you, the submitter for approval and publishing.

Document Review for Design

Passing a design or drawing between the team or senior managers for approval can now be automated and logged with extra efficiency, thanks to Soutron Document Review. Create user roles within the application and allow your design or drawing to be passed from user to user for comment or review, before being returned to you for final approval.

In all cases an audit trail is created to allow you to review the approval process at any time.

  • Increase productivity with reviewers working on the same document or image
  • Improve transparency when reviewers see all comments and changes
  • Removes bottlenecks with a complete record of all comments and changes
  • Review Documents, Drawings, Images, Video and more
