A More Complete Solution

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.

Options

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.

Project Lifecycle Management

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.

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.

True Collaboration Tools

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.

A Common Thread

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.

Multi-Presentation Capability

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.

Crew Cuts

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.

Our Network is Global

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.

Craft Worldwide

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.

Our Focus is on Development

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.

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.

It’s Also on You – the User

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.

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!
