Brief but Dazzling Glimpse of New WorkAs a one-person shop, eight of the twelve companies I represent provide Wiredrive for me to use in sales. While my clients acknowledge Wiredrive as the gold standard in delivery methods, I enjoy the ease of manipulating the spots and previewing the finished piece. I also like the fact that I can change or update the link after it has been sent. Thus, it addresses the problem of last minute changes and updates. I also keep links as templates so that if I need a particular style or line up, I can reference a previous link.,Wiredrive organizes the content for easy selection for reels. I am also able to add a reel while I am previewing it - this saves time. Wiredrive's tech support is remarkable: someone with a name calls me back immediately with easily understood solutions. The techs are patient, as well, and I never feel rushed or unschooled. The analytics are priceless in timing my follow up. Knowing or not knowing if someone has viewed the work or forwarded the link to team mates allows me to be timely and effective,The greatest problem I have with Wiredrive is the interaction with iTunes for screening in a group.

Having 'hidden' files from clients. Other providers allow for a section in each project folder where you can upload temp files or internal review files that the client cannot see.,10,Since starting with Wiredrive we have been able to maintain an online library for proposal purposes. When potential clients ask to see some of our work, we employees and freelancers can now go to our branded Wiredrive page to find videos they need- they no longer have to go through our broadcast operations manager. This has allowed for faster and easier reviewing by our clients. They all love being able to log into a website and see the days updates on their videos/commercials.,WorkZone,10

  • Wiredrive organizes the content for easy selection for reels. I am also able to add a reel while I am previewing it - this saves time.
  • Wiredrive's tech support is remarkable: someone with a name calls me back immediately with easily understood solutions. The techs are patient, as well, and I never feel rushed or unschooled.
  • The analytics are priceless in timing my follow up. Knowing or not knowing if someone has viewed the work or forwarded the link to team mates allows me to be timely and effective
  • The greatest problem I have with Wiredrive is the interaction with iTunes for screening in a group. The download protocol and rearrangement of the spots is awkward.
The companies with whom I work that do not use Wiredrive use Simian, Get-A-Reel and in one case, a proprietary platform designed in house. These systems are not as fast, the content not as well organized and the analytics not revealing. These are the issues I bring up with these companies and the questions I would pose to a prospective user.

We use Wiredrive to manage and share all of our media online. It is used within the whole company and shared with non Wiredrive users and Wiredrive users alike.
  • Constructing reels to showcase work.
  • Online media management, meaning easy access whenever or wherever you are.
  • Provides a platform for media to be directly downloaded by any recipient - Wiredrive and Non Wiredrive users.
  • Bulk delete is certainly something to be looked at. This could be made easier.
  • Thumbnail customisation on project folders.
  • Thumbnail customisation for videos stored.
Wiredrive is well suited to anyone who wants a platform online to store and share their work. Film production companies would really benefit, as well as creative individuals that are sharing their work with others.

EASE OF USE...our clients are not always involved in the technical aspects of our industry, so being able to easily and quickly access information/files is extremely important. It's difficult to use Wiredrive for a client with numerous digital displays though, in terms of file moving and uploading, but it is key for organizational purposes.

Wiredrive works perfectly for gathering and maintaining a well organized online library for proposals and review purposes. The biggest 'want' my company has with Wiredrive is for an added folder/location within each project that will allow for internal review only and not give access to that folder to users marked as "client" or similar.
