Why use Futureproofs?
You may have used generic PDF software in the past, but Futureproofs is designed just for book publishing. We understand what editors, proofreaders, authors and designers actually do, and we build tools for those jobs.
Futureproofs uses established markup standards (BSI and Chicago) to minimise the amount of data entry needed.
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.
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.
Futureproofs helps your whole team work effectively, with tools for the jobs they do every day.
All the tools you need
Our toolbar gives you search, navigation, zoom, info, queries and more.
No complex palettes – just draw on the screen as you would on paper, and Futureproofs gives you the markup you need.
Artworks & text
Mark up art just like text, with gesture-based and freehand drawing.
Choose who can access your content and how much information each person can see.
Real-time data puts control in your hands. See if the schedule is slipping, or extra changes are being made.
Find out who made what change and when. Review conversations and decisions.
Loved by publishers around the world!
The line-by-line markup functionality is, frankly, gorgeous.

Easy to get started
It's free to sign up for an account, and you can use the provided sample project to try out our tools. And it's always free for any user to sign up to work on a project.
A one-off trial with your own content costs just £99, and includes 30 days of access for as many people as you need, two projects, all features, and the training and support you need to get started.
What does it cost after the trial?
We have a simple subscription model based on your publishing volume.
Look at your publishing plan for the next 6–12 months, find the total number of pages you're publishing and work out the monthly average – it's that simple!
There is no charge for extra users or proof stages, and you can choose to pay either monthly or annually.
You can boost your subscription with extra pages, training or support, according to your needs. For example, you could get 5 days of implementation support in your first year to get your Futureproofs experience off to a great start. Or, if you expect publish on 2000 pages each month, you can buy a Pro subscription and add a 500-page monthly boost.
Additional parcels of pages to let you get even more work done.
