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.
