"Fast and easy reviewing process"

What do you like best?

+ Easy to set up

+ Intuititve

+ Clear and quick user interface

+ Secure, even useable for content that requires NDAs

+ You can easily see that this tool is made by people who exactly know what the problem is to which their product provides the solution

What do you dislike?

- Not very cheap considering freelancers

- Limited API at the moment (but I was told that there is more to come)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reviewing images, videos, documents and even sound is a complicated process. Very often, you get feedback through just talking on the telephone or writing an e-mail with complicated references about where the annotation belongs to. Filestage makes the process of reviewing simple for both sides and makes sure nothing is left and nobody can say "but I also told you to change that" three weeks later, as it provides a very good version managment and logging.

"I'm using Filestage together with a fellow student. We both study film design and photography. "

What do you like best?

- Easy Overview about our projects - no more mess within video production and photo projects

- No misunderstanding with reviews - precise definition of task within pictures and videos

- quick retrace of different versions

What do you dislike?

I hope there will be some calendar option in the future. Sometimes you like to schedule your projects with a visual calendar.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have a business as a designer or creative, Filestage is definitely a must-have. You will improve your relationship with your clients and your productivity will rise a lot.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have a fast and easy overview about my versions. My client exactly sees what I have edited and there are no more discussions about the post production. My client can give me precise tasks to do and I can easily spilt them within my team.

"Terrific Platform for sharing video feedback"

What do you like best?

- Having the ability to point out an idea for a change for a video at the exact frame is extremely helpful as a creator.

- Being able to comment on a change that a viewer has already made, and then mark that as done is a simple way to make sure ALL changes have been made in the edit room

- I love that a viewer does not have to create a username and password in order to write a comment

What do you dislike?

- The support page lacked some encoding information for uploading a file to the platform, but this was quickly fixed after I reached out to customer support

Recommendations to others considering the product

I was able to use Filestage during it's trial period, but I would seriously recommend this to companies with more of a budget for video production/marketing.

My company is a little smaller with a smaller video budget, so the pricing didn't fit our need for the sharing platform, however I highly recommend this to anyone looking to improve often the most time consuming and cumbersome part of creating a video.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This platform solved the issue of chained emails with mass amounts of people being copied on each comment that was being made.

Some colleagues would respond to emails with comments on videos to JUST me, and others would copy the entire carbon copied list. This was awful as a creator because it encouraged hidden feedback and opinions for each video.

With Filestage, video feedback was out in the open and encouraged constructive collaboration.

"Simply the best feedback tool for audio-visual group projects. "

What do you like best?

I highly recommend to any Team handeling film projects over long-, or short distances. You can mark any spot in a frame and leave a comment. You may also draw scetches into frames to further illustrate corrections for your team mates.

Shared project work over any distance has never been so easy! Can't imagine any future projects without filestages assistance. Thanks!

What do you dislike?

That I didn't discovered it earlier.....

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The Feedback process is way easier. You can improve audio- visuell Projects from any location. The Feedback can thereby be placed exactly at the frame and position at the picture you want to feedback on. Also you can illustrate alternative examples for the animators to visualize.

"It improves the communication between the business owner and the customer"

What do you like best?

It is a user friendly product that allows customer to post a comment without any challenge. It is easy to upload different version of files to the software easily. It saves time as there no sending of emails back and forth from the customer to the business owner and vice versa.

What do you dislike?

I wish there is a calender feature that will allow the users to schedule their projects in different timelines.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This is one of the best way to upload files and leave it to customers to make honest reviews of various products.

"FileStage works for us!"

What do you like best?

The easiest to use interface, especially for our customers. They are able to provide us with feedback immediately. They are able to click the video and type away. It negates the need to send timecodes, or to make lists, and send that all to me.

What do you dislike?

I haven’t found anything that I would say I necessarily dislike, but as with all newly implemented solutions, it seems there is just a learning curve.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to receive instant feedback from our clients, now when we complete the first draft of a job for them, they can immediately notify us of changes that they request.
