Loom

Loom is perfect if you do anything on a computer or phone and you need to document it. Rather than firing up another screen recording tool, recording your video, then downloading the file and uploading it to Youtube THEN sharing that link (my old workflow)—I can now just press one button, select the area of my screen I want to record, record my video, and send it within seconds. No extra software or steps.

StepShot

StepShot is perfect for showing your audience how they are supposed to navigate a new system you have implemented. You can take them from a login screen all the way through any technical process you want them to follow. The product is not ideal, however, for documenting a process that does not have tangible steps. For example, a process we have created includes some reflective thinking about alignment or outcomes in order to work, this can be articulated in the text area of the screen captures but doesn't really capture our message.

Pros

Loom

  • Integrated right into Chrome - If I want to make a screen-capture video of a particular window in Chrome, I just start the Loom extension from within that window. It automatically records the entire window, my audio, computer audio and/or my video camera. In other words, it makes recording a screen capture video fast and almost automatic.
  • I like that it automatically saves it to my Loom account profile and also provides a URL I can send to people. I think the utility of this feature is pretty obvious. The sequence is 1. Start loom 2. click the RECORD button 3. record 4. click the STOP button 5. copy and paste the URL which loom automatically generates.
  • The way they have chosen to provide online organizing of my videos is pretty well executed. I can create folders and move related videos into those folders. This becomes really important when you start creating a lot of videos.

StepShot

  • Easily capture process as you're going through it
  • Easily edit the captured process
  • Add new steps/slides into the process as needed after it's captured

Cons

Loom

  • Settings could be more configurable - I rarely want my face on the video. Every time I need to turn it off... ideally this could be a setting to have it disabled by default.
  • The UI while recording could be improved. I often forget the keyboard shortcuts, and a simpler red button floating on the screen or somethign would be great to stop the recording simply as needed.
  • The desktop app (in beta) overrides some standard keyboard shortcuts in OSX, which is frustrating.

StepShot

  • More control over the formatting of how the text and images end up in the final export.

Loom is a very good product which has many different use cases that help us to keep our products supported, allow our products to be sold, and allow us to talk with one another in the company. There are not many glaring issues with Loom that would hold me back from continuing to use this service but the main question will be how they stack up with the other video products on the market and their direct competition.

Loom is one of the easiest software solutions that I've used. Their Chrome extension is very intuitive and I hear that the desktop app is phenomenal. Once you've stopped the recording, the video is instantly available to share via the link that Loom provides you. The recipient only needs to click on the link and click 'play' on the Loom landing page. So easy.

It is the best platform that I have come across that does exactly what I want it to do when I want it to do it. It is there when I need it (browser extension) and hidden when I don't. I have never had an issue with the service and find it to be one of the most convenient tools to use when an email or Slack won't suffice.

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 only run into an issue once, which I believe was due to a newly released feature (cloud storage). I was running into issues with the functionality on my Mac. The team was incredibly helpful in both troubleshooting the issue by jumping on screen sharing sessions, as well as providing multiple releases for me to test to fix the problem!

Alternatives Considered

Loom

For desktop recordings, I've only used Quicktime. Loom is overall a nicer looking and functioning tool for recording videos, although there are a couple tools that Quicktime has (like splicing videos and selecting a specific recording size) that I wish Loom had

StepShot

While StepShot provides us with more options for modifying our screen recording and adding helper information for our audience, iSpring is a little more accessible since you can connect directly to YouTube for videos. Since most of our work doesn't require a video tutorial, we are happy with StepShot, but iSpring, like many other screen recorders, is a little more "well rounded" when it comes being able to connect our guides with our intended audience.

Return on Investment

Loom

  • We're able to keep hiring managers happier which typically can increase the number of hires we have. That, in turn, increases revenue. Happy hiring managers also mean more renewals of partnerships
  • We're able to get information to the hiring manager quicker, which can lead to quicker hiring times, which means more money to use faster.

StepShot

  • I've only got one point here, and it's that I think it's paid for itself. The amount of questions that don't need to be asked and time that can be saved justifies the price 100%.
