Resource Guru
It is very well suited when different branches of the company reside in different countries or time zones. It allows the project manager to efficiently keep track of the progress of their team members. It reduces the need for intensive calls where the manager asks for an extensive check in and update from each individual person. It also allows the project manager to update tasks and timelines as needed.

I work with a lot of actors and directors. This product is an easy all-in-one package for anyone new to the industry. It was extremely useful but also helps you look very professional. Your actors and crew will thank you for making the process easier. I know mine did.

Resource Guru is the only product of it's kind that I have used regularly. Slack is comparable in allowing communication between teams, but doesn't have nearly the functionality of Resource Guru. Resource Guru is the only product that I am aware of that manages tasks and deadlines between various team members, and can be accessed by all members.

Nothing compares to StudioBinder in my opinion. It is the only product that I have used for activities other than doing everything by hand and this process was a lot easier and a lot more organized using this product.
