Simian vs.

Simian and Frame have comparable features when it comes to review and approval functionality. However, for creative companies that rely on sales as the lifeblood of their business, Simian is the better choice. While Frame offers a fair amount of cloud storage for a low price, medium to large size companies often pay substantially more than they would with a comparable Simian plan. And with a media library to organize finished work and a top-notch reel creator for presenting talent, Simian has tools to help creative companies “get to approved faster!” and keep their pipelines full with new business, all housed in a single platform.

What Our Users Are Saying

Portrait Simian is easily the best video collaboration and presentation service available. I can easily create reels for trade shows or prospective clients, and the real-time video encoder makes uploading a breeze while ensuring optimized playback every time. The Infusion 2.0 integration with Adobe Premiere Pro is absolutely amazing, too! Simian is a MUST for anybody needing to collaborate, share and host creative work.
