Document Types in ManageArtworks


During the lifecycle of a packaging artwork, the team requires / creates several documents that support the final artwork. How does the team manage all the documents?

To answer this, ManageArtworks provides a central library that helps the team to store and manage all the required documents.

The typical document types that are managed are as follows:
