Overcast Feature Reviews

9 reviewers had the following to say about Overcast's features:

Alice C.

Easy to use and excellent customer service

2021-08-19

Working with Overcast has been great, especially whilst adapting to digital events. They are hands on, supportive and the product does what it says on the tin.

Pros

No nonsense, user friendly, multi-functioning, easy client access, excellent customer service

Cons

But does have everything we needed from a digital asset management point of view.

Alice and her team have shown a great ability to adapt to a changing environment - especially doing live events during Covid lockdowns. We've gone on that journey with them and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Easy to use and easy to work with

2021-05-24

Overcast accomplished our goal of bringing four disparate asset management systems and the assets the held into one easy to use system, whilst minimising the pain of ingestion and standardising the metadata.

Pros

The features that really stand out with Overcast are (1) customer service and support, working with [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] was a true partnership and it was great to deal with real people rather sitting in a queue waiting for a response to your support ticket (2) intuitive interface making the software a pleasure to use rather than the painful experience we had with our previous software.

Cons

Overcast lacked some of the nice to have features that more established players had, but did have all of the core features we needed. But since using it we have already seen more functionality come on stream and are kept informed about further developments in the pipeline.

It has been great working with content creators with really high standards, who know what they want and are not afraid to ask for it. This is a great partnership.

Simple to use review and approval system

2021-07-02

We needed a way to share content with clients in a more streamlined way than uploading a link and have the ability for them to make comments that can feed back into editors and producers.

Pros

This is easily achieved using Overcast and the integration with editing systems is fantastic.

Cons

So far everything is working as expected so nothing to dislike.

Great to hear Madhuparna. Sharing video has historically been managed by engineers and video editors - so we knew we had to create a platform that everyone could use - like Google Docs for video.
