Our collaboration and reel creator tools put Simian far above Dropbox when it comes to the needs of professionals.
While it’s a great product, at its heart Dropbox is a rudimentary file sharing service. Simian is a complete solution for creative companies, offering capabilities that extend from sales to finish. The tools we’ve developed are what creatives, production and post production pros rely on: reel creation, sales analytics, project management, review and approval and final delivery.
Being that a large part my life is making the right reels for the right projects, the analytics on Simian are a true help. It’s become a daily and useful tool to be a better sales rep for my clients, and a better resource for the agencies.
Doug Sherin, Partner/Rep, Options
We work closely with leaders in advertising, production and post to develop tools video producers need to get their job done. Simian is geared towards creative workflow and our interface is intuitive, designed to simplify video sharing and collaboration.
Simian provides us with a modern method of instantaneous, digital communication, whether we're operating locally, nationally, or globally. It’s an integral part of the way we do business on a daily basis.

When you connect via your Simian account, your works reflects your branding and color palette, in everything from email to your video player, showreels and project presentations. We even support multiple brandings in a single account. And our presentation templates and functionality lets you share and pitch work in a way that reflects your brand identity and your taste.
In nearly 10 years of asset management, I haven’t come across a platform that works as well as Simian. I simply could not imagine doing my job without Simian at this point.
Ben Ross, Creative Director, Wild Plum
Simian is a far better option than Dropbox for sending reels or compilation videos when pitching or bidding on projects. Our branded presentations support video, audio and image files, and provides the added power of tracking client views and engagement. Services like Dropbox simply can’t compete with this package.
“I’m extremely happy with my experience with Simian. Making reels and presentations is easy, and uploading is even easier. And on top of that, their customer service support is absolutely fantastic.”
Steve "Scof" Schofield, Owner & Founder, Schofield's Flowers
Dropbox doesn’t provide analytics on shared video, while Simian’s analytics are used to sharpen presentation reels and create more strategic follow-ups. Know when your reel was viewed and which segments or scenes were viewed with our analytic tools. You can also track sales activity and create customized reports. It’s a win-win.
The workflow that Simian provides allows us to get those approvals quickly, which can mean the difference between making it on the air on time and having to push or cancel a media schedule.
Scott Back, Creative Director, Lithia
Unlike Dropbox, Simian offers a deep level of tools for efficient collaboration, review and approval. Teams using Simian can privately share all file types, leave comments, annotate on video and still images, manage versions and compare videos side-by-side, all while integrating with tools like Adobe Premiere Pro, Slack and Box.
I love Simian! Managing jobs and sharing our work is so easy and streamlined. Simian is an essential part of our daily workflow, and I can’t imagine life without it!

With Simian, you can customize permission levels to best suit your business and employees. Give users as much – or as little – access as they need to ensure everyone can get their job done and sensitive files stay in the right hands.
Simian has allowed us to generate revenue for something we hadn’t in the past. It’s helped to streamline our workflows and has made the posting and approval process easier and more timely. I don’t know how we could function day to day without Simian.
Philip Ohler, Director, Broadcast & Video, Craft Worldwide
Every user, regardless of account size, has access to our 24/7 customer support. Our account managers are available to answer questions, fix problems or provide training, whenever it’s needed.
Simian lets us consolidate all of our content for reels in one place. It allows us to see fantastic analytics that show what, when and how people are viewing our work. It is a great addition to our arsenal of digital tools.
