Please describe how your company managed daily workflow and media sharing needs prior to using Simian.
Prior to Simian, we utilized a custom-made project management tool for sharing work with our clients, in conjunction with a media sharing service that was not very organized or all-encompassing. Since switching to Simian, we feel that we have found the ideal tool for reliable file sharing in an efficient, fast and easy way. The microsite building function is one of our favorites, and has become a priceless tool in our online media sharing needs.
Please describe in detail, the needs, challenges or problems that made Simian the right choice for your company.
As one of the largest global animatic companies, we have hundreds of animated spots filtering through our offices day in and day out. We needed a professional, organized way to share and review them – both internally and externally. We also have a large marketing team and production staff spread across nine offices internationally, making it hard for everyone to be on the same page across all of our services and style offerings.
Please describe in detail the ways in which Simian addressed these needs, challenges or problems.
Simian allowed us to have a structured, branded system for sharing our media files with clients. The built-in features, mixed with the ability to customize, are what makes Simian the ideal tool for our large, global company.
Please describe in detail, the overall benefit that was achieved as a result of using Simian. This can include additional revenue or products related to a specific job or project.
Simian’s reel sharing function is essential in our marketing efforts and has helped ASB win over new clients. The microsite function has also been a huge asset to our efforts, allowing us to create beautiful, customized websites. We can attribute a lot of our marketing success stories to Simian.
