PicMonkey Launches Real-Time Collaboration Features, Empowers People to Create Together

New research confirms that business success ‘takes a village’
entrepreneurs with a strong network feel optimistic about their growth
prospects

SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#BrandManagement–PicMonkey, a leading cloud-based image editing and design platform that
helps people create high-impact visuals to promote their brand and
business, today announced the immediate availability of real-time
collaboration features in its product. For the first time ever,
subscribers can now create shared workspaces and invite others to
co-design simultaneously, thereby boosting productivity and design
quality.


To understand the role of collaboration in the growth economy, PicMonkey
commissioned a survey of solopreneurs and small businesses. More than
two thirds (69%) of respondents report that they regularly rely on their
networks for advice with vision and goal-setting, marketing and
promotional work, and even assistance with admin tasks. 85% of
respondents report that their collaboration networks are important
or very important to the success of their business.

“In addition to the survey findings, we know that working together and
working more efficiently are also top priorities for our customers,”
said PicMonkey CEO Frits Habermann. “It’s because the velocity of
content creation has accelerated due to the explosion in social media,
both for marketing and commerce. That’s why we’re delighted to launch
real-time collaboration in PicMonkey — think: Google Docs for design and
image editing.”

PicMonkey’s collaboration features empower people to quickly access,
edit, and comment simultaneously on shared files—all in one central
location—eliminating the traditional pain, cost, and added steps of
using multiple applications to design, provide feedback, and store files.

“I work with a really creative team of marketers, and we’ve come to
realize that our ideas only get bigger and better when we collaborate,”
said Charity Hestead, senior digital marketing manager at Seattle
Chocolate Company. “We move really quickly, so being able to share
feedback and work directly in PicMonkey’s Shared Spaces is a huge time
saver. We create social assets, email designs, even signage for our
store, and PicMonkey is helping us to collaborate smarter.”

To use PicMonkey’s new collaboration features, subscribers simply visit Hub,
the platform’s cloud-based storage, where they will see a new “Shared”
section underneath their private files. Once the user creates a new
“Shared Space” and adds images to it, they can invite others to join via
email or via a unique link, while also assigning various levels of
permission to collaborators. Multiple users can then design together in
the PicMonkey editor, organize shared files into additional Shared
Spaces, leave comments for each other, and enjoy unlimited storage of
their image files.
