Beekeeper

I highly recommend Beekeeper; it has given an incredible strength in each of the task management processes; you can get a great benefit to develop multiple activities in a given time. It is an excellent and convenient resource that allows teams to synchronize, improve information flow, and collaborate effectively.

Frame.io

By far Frame is the best video review service out there mainly due to how easy it is to introduce to new users, including on the client side. There is not much instruction required in order to share and edit with a client and ask them to start providing feedback - the system is designed to invite users to give notes and that alone is worth the money.

Pros

Beekeeper

  • Beekeeper is ultimately the most viable option for managing tasks and getting a solid result from projects.
  • It has very extraordinary support; I can solve configuration issues.
  • It gives us significant advantages in communication and collaboration within the organization.
  • It is extraordinary to complement a system of coordination and systematization of priorities in any environment.

Frame.io

  • Frame.io provides an intuitive interface for clients to leave detailed feedback on videos they've hired us to produce. Users can leave public or private comments and start and stop on whichever video frames they choose. Users can draw on a frame using a non-destructive marker to make specific feedback (e.g. I don't like that this window is overexposed and is distracting me from looking at the interview). This allows for making nuanced critiques that are otherwise difficult to convey without using screengrabs or long email threads.
  • Frame.io is easy to learn. If a user is new to the application, the software determines this and a short tutorial video pops up and teaches the new user how to interact with the application. It does this without taking the user to a new page and risk confusing a client. The software is simple to use and I never have issues with uninformed or flustered clients because of it.
  • Frame.io makes sharing simple. Producers can send review links within the application or copy and paste the link into an email, whichever their preference. Users can also create live presentations to walk clients through a video as well. I've not used this feature extensively, so I'm unsure of how well it works, but the option is available.
  • Frame.io interacts with video editing software (i.e. After Effects, Premiere Pro) using a plug-in. Before applications like Frame.io, we had to reference emails with timecodes and then decipher what the client is asking to have changed. It was cryptic, and feels archaic in hindsight. Now, the integration between the application and our software is seamless. I can revisit feedback by clicking on a comment in the review window, and it takes me to the exact point of criticism in the timeline. It's so easy to use and saves so much time.

Cons

Beekeeper

  • The most dangerous thing for me is the price; I think you can get similar quality programs at a reasonable price.
  • The user interface is not bad, but it could be more intuitive and organized.
Maria Pulenta | TrustRadius Reviewer

Frame.io

  • Frame.io's permissions aren't great. Each individual project has its own permissions and there is no way to set a general admin permissions to team members thus allowing them to be added to every project.
  • Frame.io sometimes has issues for our clients where they cannot add edits or where their film does not load.

I've used other video review systems, Frame was the only one I didn't question how they allowed you to review - I just started reviewing. It's that simple. It's easy to set up projects, invite collaborators, and then provide a final cut for download. It's naturally built for the kind of work that TV/Film & video production companies do.

I've only reached out to Frame.io a few times but they responded quickly and offered achievable solutions. The fact that I haven't had to reach out to them more is proof that the platform is easy to use, reliable, and can run on its own. The only issues we have had were related to uploading issues on our end.

Return on Investment

Beekeeper

  • I love being able to count on Beekeeper; it has all the communication capabilities so practical and easy to integrate with other tools.
  • The ROI is swift and complete.
Maria Pulenta | TrustRadius Reviewer

Frame.io

  • The turnaround time of getting videos sent out has significantly decreased since using Frame.io. We are able to get our edits from multiple people quicker because there is no need for them to open the video, write down timecodes and write out their edit. It's all in one place. You don't even need to stop the video when you have something to write- it does it for you automatically.
  • The fact that I have all my edits in one place drastically cuts out a ton of time getting changes made to each of my videos. I am able to complete my video quicker, which allows it to release sooner, and I'm on to the next project days before I usually would start it.
