“On the sixth day of Christmas my true love gave to me 6 skilled reviewers, 5 approvers approving, 4 zoomable images, 3 key texts, 2 dashboard reports and one project in XaitPorter”
We have already established our view on receiving birds as a gift, so no geese a-laying, please! However, we will gladly accept six skilled reviewers.
As you read in yesterday’s blog, reviewers are second in the document creation process – after writers, before approvers. Why is this role important? Consider the role of a reviewer in a large tender or proposal, where you will likely have multiple stakeholders for each section. A reviewer is often one of your colleagues – either based locally or in a remote office. However, XaitPorter also enables external, third-party contributors to have secure, rights- or role-based access to your project or document.
Reviewers contribute in a number of important ways, including:
- Providing subject matter expertise for critical content (e.g. technical, scientific, financial)
- Reviewing content for accuracy, relevance and context
- Correcting grammar or terminology
- Translating (e.g. via an external translation agency) or editing translated text
- Confirming facts, historical information and data
- Adding a customer-focused perspective or industry viewpoint
- Validating your offer or price
XaitPorter enables all contributors to work simultaneously and collaborate in parallel: for example, when a reviewer adds an inline comment to a section, a writer or another contributor can immediately take action.
Reviewers will add inline comments to their section of responsibility, such as:
“Please change the wording to….”
“This translation should read instead…..”
“Could you please clarify the meaning and intent of the following phrase….”
“Please delete this paragraph and replace with….”
…and any number of other editorial comments and suggestions.
What is the value of delivering a high-quality, error-free proposal or annual report which includes contributions from multiple expert reviewers? Expertly-produced documents convey a higher level of authority and integrity than documents which contain grammar or spelling mistakes, factual errors, pricing discrepancies or other faults. For important proposals, tenders or reports, those six reviewers could indeed be priceless.
