Why use Futureproofs?

You may have used generic PDF software to handle your proofs, but Futureproofs will change how you think about proofing. We understand the jobs that editors, proofreaders, authors and designers actually do, every day – and we built Futureproofs to make those jobs easier, faster and more transparent.


Futureproofs uses established markup standards (BSI and Chicago) to minimise the amount of data entry needed.

Fully digital

Futureproofs uses modern gesture recognition to remove the need for complex palettes of tools.

Hosted in the cloud

Browser-based and cloud-hosted, Futureproofs needs no installation and is always up to date, wherever you are.

Real-time insight

Always know what's going on with your projects so you can deal with issues before they become problems.


You need clear communication among your team, and Futureproofs helps with easy querying, resolution and tracking.
