Any communication that needs to be executed can be done via Loom. Loom simplifies communication by providing video and audio inputs, which minimizes the amount of time it takes to communicate something and reduces any potential misunderstandings for us. We use Loom quite extensively in our day to day operations - 1. We have Software for which bugs, feature explanations, and design walkthroughs for our internal team are communicated through Loom videos. 2. We also service clients' development requirements, for which we use Loom to communicate development feedback and bugs using Loom. 3. We also teach the service clients how to use certain tools/elements online, which we use Loom to document. 4. We have recently started using Loom for product walk-throughs as well.

The agility to go from screen recording to share is insane. It's free for the basic version and very affordable for the premium. They've got great foldering system that lets us create shareable folders for client videos, team videos, and more. Read full review Cons Whenever there have been challenges with the product, the team has always been hungry to fix the issues that we raise. In-platform reporting on conversion metrics can be improved. For example, it's not possible to report on business vs non business email capture rate (currently reported by our CSM every week), and to get the most detail about meetings that have been booked, you have to export data and review in Sheets/Excel. Drift responds quickly, and they're already working on this... so by the time you read this review, the reports will probably be fully functional in the platform. Adrian Cohn

Read full review The video trim feature has improved a lot recently, but it's still not perfect. Sometimes when I trim a video clip, it distorts other parts of the video. It would be nice if they had a referral/affiliate program. I would get all my friends to sign up! Read full review Usability
The customer-facing usability is great, but managing drift from the back end can be challenging at times. This is mainly due to slow loading speeds when it comes to editing or viewing routing. Coupling this with no autosave function, changes are hard to make and can easily be lost.

It's dirt easy for the one thing it does exceptionally well. If you think, "hmmm, I should make a quick screen capture of this thing on screen, you can start recording in seconds with almost no additional effort." Once you're done, the recording is automatically uploaded to your account site, and automatically creates a URL you can copy and share with your target audience. From IDEA to EXECUTION to DISTRIBUTION is literally seconds.

Loom is one of my favorite solutions and I've been a raving fan since they first launched. The value of quickly sharing videos in seconds is amazing. Our customers love it so much that they have even downloaded the Loom Chrome extension for their own use with their clients! It's so simple, and nothing else compares or competes.

The Drift team has been remarkably responsive to me. From support reps available in-app, to my account manager committed to my long-term success, to regular connections and interactions with their leadership team. They have been wholeheartedly committed to answering every question and solving every issue so that we can succeed as a team, and I can succeed as a marketer!

I use Loom for simple tasks. Never used customer support really. It's so simple to use. I haven't had any real issue with Loom which would require customer support to help me out. So I just put 5 because I don't know if the customer support is good or bad since I never used, so I'm kind of neutral.

I have used a few different chat platforms, the most popular one being Intercom. They both have some similarities in functionalities and features. I have had more success with Drift and the calendar link/automation. I love the fact that a prospect can easily find my calendar link and book a demo without needing to speak with me.

I selected Loom because of product superiority and intuitiveness. Loom has high quality videos compared to others, the Freemium tier is very exciting in Loom. Loom is a multipurpose tool that comes to our help in many areas- whereas other tools are more focused on a specific vertical like sales/ marketing/ learning.

Read full review Loom has saved us a lot of time because we can record videos for our customers instead of walking them through something one-on-one. Loom has helped us have better tools for our customers who often request video trainings. Loom has helped us easily communicate with each other as a team about how new software works, how to replicate bugs we see, and other messages that work best with visuals. Read full review ScreenShots
