What is an Account Manager?

The Account Manager is a person who’s role sits between the Publisher (the designer) and the Collaborator (the client). The Account Manager is the person who takes over responsibility and sends proofs across to clients.

If you are an Account Manager and you have been sent a proof from a your Client’s Gatekeeper, you will have received an email from the GoProof system requesting that you action the proof. After reviewing the proof comments, you will most likely want to send the proof back to your design team to make any changes or let them know that the proof has been signed off.

If you received an email, it will look something like the one below. click on the View Proof button to take you directly to the proof.
