Wipster

Cloud-based video review & digital asset management solution

About Wipster

Wipster is a cloud-based digital asset publishing and collaboration management solution designed for small agencies, production businesses and freelancers to help manage and speed up review and approval processes for video, audio and document projects. The platform enables content teams, product managers, and other stakeholders to create and collaborate on projects in real time and manage cycles across review, feedback, approvals, analytics, and publishing. Wipster allows businesses to add any numbers of members into project groups and limit comments to a selected few.

Key features of Wipster include threaded comments, version control, video encoding, HD playback, single sign-on (SSO) team setup, activity notifications, and feedback cycle management. The solution enables video makers to manage a centralized, shared multimedia asset library where all stakeholders can suggest revisions and track them across stages with version control functionality. It supports collaboration on all media types such as images, multi-page PDFs, video, and audio files, and provides a custom feature to setup individual teams for each project. Wipster facilitates real-time collaboration and review processes through alerts and notifications on web browsers, email, and Slack.

Wipster facilitates integration with third-party communication and employee engagement tools such as Adobe, Slack, Brightcove and more. It provides an open API for developers to customize and modify the platform based on business requirements. Additionally, it comes with built-in Azure integration, which monitors network security and automates application scanning processes for businesses to operate and exchange critical data in secure environments.

I use it as the head of video in a large local government council in London. I adore it. I have been using it since 2013 when I was invited to become a tester for it by a client from another company who became head of marketing at wipster.

Pros

Ease of use. Functionality. Workflow. Clients love it and it makes me look really professional and that I know what I’m doing

Cons

The mobile app is terrible and is only useful for viewing. That needs a shit load of work.

The perfect tool for freelance video producers and businesses that create video content

Wipster has allowed my team to significantly cut down on our time spent communicating with our videographer to quickly get our video content modified and published. We used to communicate edits via email, but it was often ineffective leading to additional revisions needing to be done for breaks in communication.

Pros

- Timestamped commenting on videos
- Upload Multiple revisions
- Tags to track video from Draft to Publishing phase
- Adobe Integration/Extension allows for use of Wipster within Premiere!
- Can invite viewers to comment on videos without effecting user quota

Cons

- Integration with YouTube is currently not functional, but support assures me that they are working on resolving the issue (this is a feature I am really looking forward to so we can upload approved files directly to YouTube)
- 5 GB storage cap on free accounts limits our ability to work on full-resolution files, and the next tier jumps to 250 GB which is offered at a price unaffordable for a business link ours. I wish that the free tier had the option to buy storage add-ons like those offered to higher-tier accounts.

Reasons for Switching to Wipster

Commenting with timestamps in Dropbox is limited to Professional and Business plans, and as a Dropbox Plus user, this was not available for me to use. Even if we considered upgrading to use it, Wipster's commenting/collaboration features are more appropriate and efficient with multiple revisions capabilities.

It was important for us to make commenting easier for our clients. They are all very busy people and streamlining this process for them was critical for us as an organization.

Pros

Getting comments with time code from clients is now super easy. Some of the producers I have worked with often forget to include time codes with their feedback. Since switching to Wipster it's never an issue any more.

Cons

The fact that I cannot share folders with clients is a bit of a time waster for me, since we create 100 or more videos and sharing each one individually takes longer. I would like the option to share all videos at once from a certain folder.

It's getting there

Reviewed on 19/9/2018

Pros

We find Wipster very helpful for collaborating with our customers and getting feedback. It's a great tool for video.

Cons

I wish my customers could draw and circle things on the videos and images. It would also be helpful if the IOS app could view PDF files. It seems like wipster needs some more work. but It's on it's way to becoming a flawless tool.
