SmartBear
The software works best in a collaborative environment where information needs to be conveyed quickly and effectively with visual and impromptu notes. If your group doesn't like to do things online and prefers the whiteboard for in-person meetings maybe this solution is overkill. In-person meetings happen frequently so this solution makes it easier to do things remotely.

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.

Capture for Jira was just the right-sized application we needed to make our Jira implementation more productive and effective. We didn't want to migrate from Jira, so this was the right choice to build upon the infrastructure we already had. It was the best option without pouring more money into another solution.

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.
