Creating critical documents just got easier.

You know the drill: the right content. In the right format. With the right approvals. Using the right process. Incorporating the right feedback.

It’s really hard for today’s teams to keep up with the growing burden of regulated documents that government and industry regulators demand. Until now it’s been a manual process; and you’ve been stuck with disconnected tools that are not fit for purpose.

Objective Keystone has everything you need in one place. A full suite of authoring, publishing and stakeholder engagement tools to automate and manage the entire document production lifecycle. The result: increased speed-to-publishing and a lower cost of compliance.

What is collaborative authoring?

Discover how this cloud-based collaborative authoring solution allows
multiple team members to work on the same document at the same time.


Img keystone author


You focus on the words. We’ll take care of the rest.

Produce documents faster with collaborative authoring

Speed up your project by enabling multiple authors, reviewers and approvers to work on different document content at the same time.

Work on the words, not on the format

No matter who is adding content to your document, you won’t waste valuable time reformatting, because publishing templates are built to your exact requirements.

Cascade a change across multiple documents

Updates to common clauses or images can be applied in the common content library and cascaded through in all relevant documents instantly.

Eliminate the risk of ‘missing something’

The headache of multiple versions of documents is removed by having everyone working with the single source of the truth.


Img keystone approve


Your stakeholders’ time is scarce: use it wisely with a faster, more efficient approval process.

Tame the burden of multiple rounds of reviews with multiple stakeholders

Assign team members, subject matter experts, managers and executives specific sections of a document for review and approval.

Collect supporting evidence, while you work

Editor and review notes can be added as contextual information. Because comments and changes are made at a content and document level, approvers are able to save time thanks to having all supporting evidence at their fingertips without having to open other files.

Lock down your content once it’s approved

Once approval has been given, the section of content is locked down. You’ll never need to re-review, re-approve it or recheck it for additional changes by a colleague, manager, graphic designer or typesetter.


Img keystone publish


Say goodbye to battling with Word styles and your reliance on typesetters

When you’re ready to publish, do it in one click

Save time producing print-ready, digital and HTML versions with a single click using our multi-target publishing engine.

Re-publish easily without the pressure

Easily make last minute changes at 5pm on a Friday and republish in one click without needing your typesetter.

Single source, multiple brands

Produce your documents in multiple brands with ease from a single source document.


Img keystone manage


Manage your documents and stakeholders effectively

Use tasks and workflow to drive team activity

Choose between simple and advanced workflows to direct your team through the document lifecycle. Automatic task assignment and activity tracking frees up your time from admin to focus on the content.

Process dashboards for management

See at a glance where your document is in the process; identify bottlenecks and follow up with your team’s tasks.

Publish your document’s approvals trail in an instant

For when you need to show who did what and when. Publish a complete verification certificate showing every edit, note and approval.


Img keystone consult


Manage structured feedback from stakeholders and the community

Be more agile and responsive

In-line, document-based feedback allows you to analyse, respond and report faster to stakeholders during the consultation phase of the document lifecycle in-line in the document.

Pick your communication type to suit your purpose and your audience

Everyone communicates differently. Choose from a variety of response mechanisms such as polls, surveys, petitions and more.

Understand your audience over time

Build a profile of your users over time including their preferences and what documents they have submitted feedback on historically.

Have conversations where your audiences hang out

Social media integration enables you to embed polls and surveys on Facebook. Capture tweets and hashtags in our system of record to remain compliant with record keeping legislation. Log in using your LinkedIn or Google account.


Img keystone comply
