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.

monday.com is the best time and task managing tool I've used while working in a design team. It can be customized extensively and adapted to a company's and team's needs. In my particular case, it has helped enormously to separate the tasks from the design team from the software development team, who have different needs.
Read full review Pros 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.

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.

Seems to have corrected itself over time. So maybe there was an issue (bug) that was fixed. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
We rely on monday.com to track clients. There is currently not another software out there that we would prefer to use for client management, so I do not see a reason why we wouldn't renew our subscription with monday.com.
Read full review Usability
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.

As someone who has been using monday.com for a while, I would rate its overall usability as a 9 out of 10. The platform is well-designed with an intuitive interface, making it easy to navigate and use. The drag-and-drop functionality and customizable templates make it easy to create and modify boards according to our needs.The automation features are particularly impressive, allowing us to streamline our workflow and reduce manual effort. Setting up automations is straightforward, and they work seamlessly to keep us updated on task progress and deadlines.

There have only been 2 instances in the past year where monday.com was down.

Everything performs fairly well. Every now and then there are user errors where an employee will not click "ok" on a note they've created and simply exit out (I do wish that something was in place to prevent this, such as a pop "are you finished?")

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.

Unfortunately, this is one of the most significant areas for improvement with Monday.com. Monday.com boasts 24/7 service, but in my experience, it does little to deliver. On several occasions, I have reached out to Monday with long delays and lagging response times. This seems to be the one area where other platforms have Monday.com beat. While this platform is my favorite, its lackluster customer service has tainted my experience and motivated me to look elsewhere for similar services.

To have someone walk you thru the features and capabilities of Monday.com is priceless. Someone also coming along later in the contract to see if you are maximizing the program to suit your company needs is beyond helpful. The staff that have provided this training are fun, creative and very patient.

We signed up for the accounts. Created the accounts. Ran the trial version and tested it live while we were running multiple projects and found that it was fitting our needs perfectly. When the trial ended and we were asked to purchase the full version, we did. We have found other ways to use it and it's a breeze.

Frame.io is better when being compared to the
as a platform just because of the usability. Frame.io has a more simple design format, that makes organizing projects and file structures much more readily available when doing a quick search. The ability to review and comment on the different projects is also better in Frame.io as it shows who said what and at what timecode they are referring to.

We used an excel spreadsheet to track our month end close process previously which created a lot of issues around only one person being able to be in the checklist at any given time. Additionally, we were unable to have excel notify us when a task we need to have completed was done, but Monday.com has completely changed that for us!
Read full review Scalability
For it to work across multiple departments and sites, I would like to see improvements made with integrations and automation. For this question, I am acknowledging not only the addition of internal triggers/automation, but also an expansion on external ones.
Read full review Return on Investment Frame.io has allowed the team to collaborate on our own schedules Frame.io has allowed the team to collaborate remotely Frame.io has allowed us to share content with clients for feedback before publishing Read full review It's hard to measure the amount of time this system saves but I know it is huge! Everything is accessible no matter where I am or what I am doing. And it is accessible to our managers so they can find the info themselves. The old systems we replaced had a physical material cost to use, which is 100% gone now. And the physical space that was required for the many project management boards we had was immense. The more we use it, the more things we find that we can add to it. Incredibly flexible and moldable. Read full review ScreenShots
