Many clients don’t have the software needed to open the files you create. Rather than having to convert the files to other formats, Digital Pigeon will create a preview that can be viewed on any device with an internet connection.
“Tag” clients when you receive work from them, to keep uploads easy to find and refer to later. You can also automate downloads to your local or cloud storage platform to save you significant project management time.
Get client approvals with a single click, so you can move on to the next stage in your workflow. Track who did what, even if your clients don’t have a Digital Pigeon account. Reduce emails and calls, tenfold!
Our web and graphic design studio customers tell us they use Digital Pigeon for:
SPEEDING UP WORKFLOWS
The most common positive feedback we get is how Digital Pigeon has reduced a significant amount of back and forth emails. This speeds up production cycles, which helps them work more effectively and get paid more quickly.
WORKING WITH REMOTE TEAMS
Many studios work with freelancers from around the world, who may not have optimal Internet speeds. Digital Pigeon upload speeds make sending and receiving files, quick and reliable, no matter how far they have to travel. No more waiting for hours (even days) for files to sync across a cloud storage provider!
SENDING LINKS TO CLIENTS
Agencies dealing with large corporate clients use Digital Pigeon to easily send a link for clients to preview or download large files. This eliminates the need to send files that either clog up recipients’ inboxes or don’t get through because of stringent IT policies. It’s been so useful for that purpose alone that agencies have told us they use it for all files - not just large ones!
CREATING BRANDED PAGES AND UPLOAD LINKS FOR EACH CUSTOMER
Studios have created custom branded Digital Pigeon pages with client assets as part of their onboarding processes. Many of our clients also set up workflows so that the right project manager knows when files have been uploaded from their client, with files being automatically tagged to make them easy to find and sort.
WORKING WITH VENDORS
Web and graphic design agencies are often also project managing a series of vendors on top of their clients - writers, photographers, videographers, digital marketers, etc. Digital Pigeon’s workflow features make it easy to receive content, all in one place.
Many agencies present slide decks to clients when pitching for work. After the pitch, they often email the presentation only to find that it doesn’t get through because of a firewall or the file is too large. Digital Pigeon allows you to showcase your files beautifully, without ugly FTP links.
Studios tell us that Digital Pigeon helps speed up their project delivery, immensely.
It doesn’t clog up the marketing team’s inbox – or worse, prevent emails from coming through because of IT restrictions. And because we get a notification when the link has been accessed, we know they’ve got the files.
It’s all about speed. That’s the main thing… it needs to be reliable and fast. We used to have to wait overnight for files to sync and send… In this business, we don’t have that luxury and it’s lucky we found Digital Pigeon because it’s so much faster than the others.
