Pros Mikogo is well-suited and cost-effective for the small business Simple & well-designed; easy to figure out. Works best for one-on-one client support. Cons No live customer support Free version has limited features (e.g. no invite meeting allowed) Trial version only 14 days

Yamdu
Even for a small business like mine, Yamdu really felt like a one-stop shop for everything. It's hard to find a comprehensive software for film/video productions, but Yamdu has everything we need. The only thing that really held us back was the cost, ultimately. If anything, I would love a storyboarding feature that let you set the time per shot and build out a sequence in pre-production. I used Storyboarder for this currently and it's very helpful, especially for music videos, to be able to build out a storyboard, set a music/audio track to it, then play it back in real time and see the pacing of the shoot.

Mikogo has simple features and is easy to use. If you don't need lots of bells and whistles and just want to screen share or video conference on a small scale Mikogo works best. Join.me & TeamViewer are a bit confusing for the novice small business person. My experience with LogMeIn has been that it's sluggish. GoToMeeting works great but is pricey for the small firm that mainly does one-to-one support/training. I couldn't get Zoom to work right.

Yamdu
At the time, there really wasn't anything else like Yamdu. Especially as, in Celtx's case, at that time they weren't doing Excel/CSV exports of shot lists in the A/V format, something we required for what we were shooting. I understand that StudioBinder has increased its featureset the past few years, but Yamdu always felt like the most robust option and more familiar with the film/tv world.

Return on Investment
BeamYourScreen
  • Zero positive impact
  • Spend just a little more with products like AnyDesk and get some real ROI
  • Short term, the product can be used on a trial basis (or at least it was available as a trial)

Yamdu
  • Positive impact, centralized place with some good tools for film productions
  • Negative impact, not that flexible and as expected and strict pricing policy with little flexibility
