ClearSlide

ClearSlide is quite easy to use and effective when presenting information and sharing screen. It's also easy for the prospect to access your site; they just click on a link. If an inside sales manager was looking to find out where his/her team might be losing prospects, Clearslide would be a great choice because the analytics show exactly how engaged a prospect is and at what point they start to lose interest. There is a monthly cost/annual contract involved to Clearslide, so for a startup that is very cost-conscious it might be best to investigate free conference/screenshare options, but the case could be made that the analytics will earn back the fee.

Vidyard

I think it's most effective for marketing: this is because it takes some time to understand the features before using Vidyard and then some more time to go back and dig into the data. I feel that our sales team is likely to see this as too much of a list, whilst marketing would be more likely to spend more time there.

Pros

ClearSlide

  • CS easily loads in any web browser for client-facing meetings, which is awesome. No longer having to rely on an application of plug-in loading to present slides or do a screen share makes things simple for our teams and clients.
  • CS Outlook Plugin is very handy. Being able to share links to collateral from an existing email window pane has been incredibly helpful. This feature is a serious improvement from the earlier version of CS where you could only create links to collateral via their browser site.
  • The tracking capabilities that CS has embedded with linked collateral have been helpful in our client engagement strategy as an organization. Seeing what a client has viewed and for how long helps us know what they care about. Also, if they forward or share the information, we can also track that engagement.

Vidyard

  • Vidyard is the only service I've found that allows easy tagging so videos can be easily flagged and updated when a feature or part of our software is changed.
  • Vidyard allows for tracking of who has viewed the videos and what parts so videos can be revised if the desired outcome is not achieved.
  • Vidyard allows for playlists, which enables a clear path of training to be established.

Cons

ClearSlide

  • I don't love the conference line. The recording message at the beginning is particularly annoying.
  • I also wish it were easier to share multiple links quicker. It's somewhat of a cumbersome process.
  • It can occasionally be challenging to find the right materials to share at the moment quick enough.
J. Carter Saunders | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vidyard

  • We are quite demanding, so the things we'd like to see improved are more about the roadmap of things we are hoping will be possible soon rather than faults. The recent upgrade to the back end has solved any gripes we've had so far.
  • To get the cookie tracking right (so you can see who is watching and when) means you've got to follow the right steps for adding the video to outgoing emails. It's possible to get it wrong and mess up the tracking.
  • I once lost a video recording that I did in the mobile app which was infuriating. Simple fix, record the video using your phone's camera app, and then upload it in the mobile app.

ClearSlide is embedded in our culture and in our organization. The sales and marketing teams use ClearSlide on a daily basis to share information and presentations as well as communicate "what is working." Our leadership uses the analytics to provide improved feedback and coaching regarding bottlenecks our representatives are experiencing.

Vidyard has become an integral part of our software stack. I can't imagine us not using vidyard at this point. I am sure that as time goes on we will continue to evaluate vidyard as well as competitors out there to decide whether we should continue with vidyard or not, but it certainly seems like for the time being, vidyard isn't going anywhere for us.

Its easy to use from a presenter's perspective. Its web based so anyone who can navigate Facebook can open a live pitch or shared file. This makes it easy to give live demos, share files, and share screens with out downloading any software or installing java patches

We use Vidyard Enterprise and Vidyard GoVideo. We have found the usability to meet our needs and would say Vidyard Enterprise use takes someone with moderate knowledge to execute, Vidyard GoVideo works for new or intermediate skill sets to leverage video

It performs very well. I have never had any bugs while recording, and none of the videos have been impaired or corrupted. I don't believe it integrates with any other software but you could contact the company to learn more. I am not sure if it is only available on Chrome.

I was mostly involved in the implementation process and syncing ClearSlide with Salesforce, and I would say the support was mostly average. It took a few times to get everything scheduled, and a lot of the process was left up to me. I was reading through the documents that they supplied. It wasn't complicated, but more direct support would have been appreciated.

I first heard of Vidyard at a marketing conference (INBOUND 2019). I was impressed with the team working at the booth. They were friendly, helpful, and they were able to really show me how Vidyard could help our specific company. I took all that information to the owners when I got back from the conference and it was an easy sell. Since the very beginning, I felt like we were in good hands. We had great people working with us and helping us get everything set up. When there was a new account manager, she reached out (via video message of course) and made it clear that she was happy to help us with whatever we needed.

Now that they have fixed how Marketo can read the Vidyard data I would more likely give this a 10, but when I implemented the system the old issue was a bit annoying.

Alternatives Considered

ClearSlide

ClearSlide stacks up to be as good as any of the aforementioned tools. We selected Clearslide because of its ease of use and implementation. It did not take our team too long to get acclimated with how ClearSlide works and how they would be using it, allowing them to generate more meetings and more revenue.

Vidyard

I've never evaluated another product like Vidyard. I just used screen recordings with RingCentral before, and I remember the file size being very large and having to add the video as an attachment. So this was a major improvement to be able to shoot videos and easily share with my clients.

This product ROCKS!!!! ClearSlide shortened my sales cycle by over 50% by enabling to jump right into a LIVE demo on an initial client call so I don't have to waste time scheduling a demo at later date. People are busy and finding a time to schedule a call can take days or weeks

Return on Investment

ClearSlide

  • Has helped us close more deals because of the easy "on the fly" screen share
  • Also, you get a notification when people view your information so having that, I have followed up shortly after and closed the deal
  • Helps my team with all external presentations
Max J. Kouris | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vidyard

  • Vidyard gives us visibility and control over our videos that free solutions don't offer.
  • We are able to trigger other marketing campaigns based on the results we see from Vidyard, which we weren't able to do before
  • Figuring out the exact value is not as easy as it should be because of the way you pull reports from Vidyard.
