MediaSilo’s collaboration capabilities can’t match Simian’s robust suite of tools and features.
MediaSilo only offers project collaboration tools, whereas Simian is a complete solution for creative companies. From sales to finish, we have the tools creatives need - reels, sales analytics, project management, review and approval, final delivery.
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!
Greg Kuehn, Composer / Creative Director, Peligro Music & Sound
When posting rough cuts and edits, and moving from one job to the next, older projects can become overlooked, leading to accounts getting cluttered. Simian’s storage quota and auto-delete settings, which MediaSilo doesn’t offer, keep accounts up-to-date and free up storage for current projects.
Simian's extensive customization options make creating and sharing our work at Gartner/The Devil You Know an absolute breeze. Its unmatched customer service has helped me build and shape complicated client requests with ease.
Daniel Ott, Vault Manager, The Devil You Know / Gartner
MediaSilo offers a bare minimum in collaboration capability. By contrast, Simian users can privately share and comment on files, annotate directly on video and images, manage versions effectively, compare videos side-by-side and integrate their comments with Premiere Pro, Slack, Dropbox and Box.
We’re brand new Simian users, and we love it!
Kris Mathur, VP/EP, Backyard Productions
Simian offers multiple presentation formats and delivery options, so you can pitch and share work in a way that best fits your needs. Our branded reel and project presentations, bearing your logo, take seconds to send out, and you can easily create your own presentations with our customizable templates.
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
Every Simian account is on its own private cloud server, adding another layer of security and reliability, unlike at MediaSilo, where all accounts share the same server.
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.
JP McMahon, Executive Producer, A Common Thread
As the industry’s needs and its technology changes, Simian is continually releasing new and updated features to provide the best video sharing and collaboration platform available. Our record of product updates and enhancements far surpasses that of MediaSilo or any other video sharing platform. See what we’ve been up to lately.
Simian has been great for our integrated production and asset management needs. The Media Library’s category and attribute customization is simple to architect and update, and the Projects workflow and file management and review process is highly intuitive. With Simian, it’s easy to onboard anyone from novices to experienced professionals. Its features, ease of use and price make it an outstanding platform.
Patricia Jones, VP Director of Project Management, Y&R - Cavalry
We regularly talk with leaders in advertising, production and post, to learn more about the problems facing the industry, explore the latest trends and get feedback on what tools help them do their jobs better, letting them focus on being creative. MediaSilo’s strategic focus and attention, meanwhile, has been elsewhere.
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.
