Manage Creative Reviews with Multiple Agencies
Collaboration and a productive review workflow are the key factors in getting high-quality results and having a healthy relationship with your agency, and with Filestage, they’re easy to achieve.
Filestage is a web application for sharing, reviewing and approving media content. Instead of sending emails back and forth, you directly mark your annotations in the files. Filestage supports reviews of videos, audio files, documents, and designs, which brings speed and clarity to the review process and makes it more efficient.
Streamline Your Creative Workflow with Filestage
Filestage makes it easy to review creative projects with multiple stakeholders. All reviews are documented on one single platform. Through the web-based service, the files are accessible from anywhere, and the data is protected through AES 256-bit encryption.
The dashboard provides a clear overview of all projects, regardless of whether they’re from the agency or your team. With the project overview on the left, you can see which projects you are invited to review.
One of the most important parts is keeping clear documentation that retraces which feedback motivated which changes. Plus, it is important to know the version of the file and the status of the project, so everyone is up-to-date.
The precise feedback given by Filestage enables you to save money and time. Reviews are finished faster, and the content quality improves. Your company maintains control of all of their projects and tasks that are open for review. This process standardizes the communication with agencies.

Manage Internal Creative Reviews
Every bigger company has a lot of departments, which are potential stakeholders in media reviews (such as social media, digital marketing, and public relations). That’s why it can be tough getting everyone on the same page.
With Filestage, you can also manage reviews and approvals within the company. It’s easy to upload a file and invite reviewers to comment on them. On their dashboards, they immediately see that you’ve requested feedback. This web-based tool is especially helpful when you want to review files with your international colleagues.
To sum up, Filestage is a great tool for handling the reviews of projects from multiple service partners on one single platform. It also streamlines the creative workflow in your team or company. I’d love to talk about your use case, so let me know your pain points in the comments below.
