Filestage is a cloud-based workflow management software that helps manage and centralize file review and approval processes. Designed for freelancers, small, midsize and large businesses, it enables advertising, film, design, sound, creative and media professionals to share videos, images, and PDFs with co-workers and clients to receive real-time feedback and reviews.
Key features of Filestage include commenting, real-time work collaboration, client feedback, file versioning, approval management, workflow monitoring, creation of annotations, to-do lists, and archiving and exporting comments for future use. It also provides an integrated documentation system for users to keep track of feedback and versions. Businesses can personalize Filestage with their brand logo to ensure a consistent and professional look with clients during file sharing.
Filestage stores user data on a centralized platform, which is protected with AES 256-bit encryption, providing a secure work environment. Additionally, it allows integration with tools such as Slack, Trello, and Basecamp to share review links directly in a browser. The software also provides multi-channel support through email, phone and in-app chat.
You save time in your post-production process and offer clients a great tool. Saves their time and yours!
- Easy interface
- Easy feedback
- Great customer service
Easy interface, especially for customers. My clients can provide me with detailed feedback on the spot. They just click into the video and write a comment. They don't need to send timecodes, need to make lists, write an email. Revision became much more efficient.
Once my customer reviewed my videos, pdf's etc. I get a notification and have an easy to do list.
It's possible to brand the software and fit it into your company.
You also have a clear documentation and approval from your customers, which can be handy when things get complicated at a later point.
Filestage is easy reachable and help with everything.
Features for sorting projects: The interface improved a lot since I started, but there are small things, for which I use workarounds.
Projects in the overview can't be sorted in an easy. I think it's only date and alpha-numerical. I rename my projects therefore with 00.. 01.. etc.
But the team is listening and I hope the will add this feature soon!
Thanks for the review!
Read my review!
We have a creative studio where we design and paint graphics, and Filestage has been a game-changer for getting projects from concept to the real world quickly, with very happy clients (and us). We usually start off with a draft document, send a link to the client, have the client comment directly on the draft with questions/feedback, and then we can respond and/or add a new draft, then repeat the whole process until everyone's happy. We like how easy it is to get a client to respond on Filestage, and that our clients aren't forced through a weird UI or made to sign up for the app themselves. We love not having to send giant PDFs through email or dropbox, and forcing document download after document download until you can't remember which version is the most recent or how many times you have the same document draft saved in your "downloads" folder. That said, you can still enable each Filestage doc to be downloadable, so if our clients do want to download files, we like that it's an option for them.
Clunky to use on mobile, an app would be great eventually, for even more on-the-go quick response ability. Price is a bit steep too, but you get a lot, so understandable.
Thanks a lot for your valuable feedback!

-And, the best: my clients are happy to receive this link, and see the comments

I was looking for an easy way to make files available to my customers for review. I discovered Filestage and was impressed how easy and intuitive it was. My clients praised me because I was able to offer them a simple review option.

No Cons :-)
