"Great experience with Shotfarm"

What do you like best?

Shotfarm is a clean, user-friendly interface that will continually improve as the team releases regular enhancements. Has already been a huge time saver for us in creating a consistent shopping experience for our brand in the eComm channel as we are able to quickly gather current marketing content and assets (and rename if needed) for our customers, ensuring that they have the most current versions.

Folders allow users to quickly isolate a specific subset of assets and essentially create a user-friendly product catalog that can also be shared externally with anyone that has partner level access. Alternatively, ZIP file downloads can be created and emailed to non-Shotfarm users--functionality similar to Dropbox. Data access can also be controlled on a per field basis.

The ability to push content directly to Shotfarm product content network partners is also a huge feature that can save significant time in filling out customer templates or filing helpdesk tickets.

Customer support is ultra-responsive as well.

What do you dislike?

There is an export size limit that you will have to contend with if you have a large number of assets. You are also currently limited to exporting data sheets in CSV format only which can lead to formatting issues if opened directly in Excel (i.e. leading zeroes from UPC codes are dropped)--but this is ultimately an Excel issue.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Shotfarm has saved us a significant amount of time in distributing content and images to our eCommerce partners. Additionally Shotfarm has provided our sales team with a user-friendly interface to research products and obtain information for their customers.

"Shotfarm can tailor content from as simple to as complex as your customer needs"

What do you like best?

The platform is extremely easy to use. Web-like look and feel with drag and drop features making edits quick and simple to do for users at any skill level.

What do you dislike?

There's not much to dislike at Shotfarm. Additional personalized training would be helpful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Shotfarm is very simple to maintain and you get the help you need with startup. There's not a great deal of risk involved or time loss. Cost justification is easy when you start stacking up the man hours it takes to manually perform customized data sheets. Give it a try!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're eliminating multiple data sources and funneling them into Shotfarm as a centralized repository for data and content along with other functions Shotfarm has to offer. To have one place to store data significantly reduces man hours of manual interaction on multiple touch points and also helps ensure data accuracy. The feed of customized content to our customers allows us to offer a level of customer service that we previously could not within any reasonable time frame or without associated costs.

"Shotfarm Sucess"

What do you like best?

- Quicker turnover time in completing retail product detail sheets

- One centralized location to find all product features and benefits, images, and marketing collateral.

- Ease of sending information and images to buyers in one zip folder

- Allows us to store information not only on current/ in season product but also up to 2 seasons previously.

What do you dislike?

There is not anything we dislike about Shotfarm

Recommendations to others considering the product

We would recommend Shotfarm because of the benefits it provides to especially traveling sales reps and those not working in our HQ. Everyone can easily pull all information needed on every single style in our line.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our sales force has to complete product information sheets for most of their accounts on all styles we sell them. The information needed to complete these sheets typically was found on 3 different spreadsheets. Not only was it a hassle and timely to have to flip through 3 different spreadsheets, but those spreadsheets were found on our company server primarily. In order for our reps to connect to our server they would have to sign into our remote VPN. More often times than not the VPN would not work remotely and they would have to either wait until they got home to complete their sheets or email our team in NY to send them all the work.

Shotfarm has improved the workflow tremendously. Not only has it provided an easy, one stop shop for information and images for our reps but everyone can connect to wifi and get on the web. Our reps have 24/7 access to all of our product specs no matter where they are in the world on their selling travels. They are able to turnover these product information sheets to their buyers in a more timely manner.

"Exceptional Service"

What do you like best?

The sales person was very transparent and easy to work with from the initial meeting. We also selected Shotfarm because the platform is very user-friendly and cost effective compared to other applications with the same or less functionality. I also liked that they don’t force you into minimum terms or long legal agreements. They stand by their product and service so if we’re not happy we can cancel. We got started the day after signing with a kickoff call with our Client Success rep who has been extremely helpful.

What do you dislike?

I haven’t come across any functionality yet that is missing or doesn’t work as promised.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed to centralize and distribute content for 40,000 SKUs. The manual process was inefficient and delaying our time to launch. We expect to cut time to market by over four weeks while saving a ton of internal resources.

"Take the Time to Learn; Take Advantage of Any Offered Demos"

What do you like best?

The customer service/assistance Shotfarm provides to its clients.

What do you dislike?

-When entering search data, pressing enter doesn't submit the search-it goes to a new line (still haven't gotten used to this after a year of using the tool)- Being able to set this as a preference would be nice

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use the offered training if you're using the tool for more than just media storage.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Compiling data for our retailers/internal team in one space and making it easily accessible

"Shotfarm - An Awesome product and service"

What do you like best?

While I love the user interface face and ease of uploading digital assets and product information, what I love even more is the customer support, service and guidance that Shotfarm provides. Their team is knowledgeable, responsive and extremely helpful. I would highly recommend this product and service to any supplier/vendor looking for a data asset management and product information management solution.

What do you dislike?

Pricing is a little high and not having an open API is little limiting to the growth and integration with this product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Shotfarm, we can easily organize and distribute digital assets and product information across multi channels; in particular our retail and agency partners.

"Shotfarm helped us greatly"

What do you like best?

Shotfarm allowed us to easily keep all content together in one location, and the customer service team has always been willing to help us with any issues.

What do you dislike?

At first we had a hard time getting our images and data to marry up, but with some help from the Shotfarm team that is no longer an issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a solid product if you are looking for a way to keep content organized and accessible.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Different customers require different things when it comes to data and content, and Shotfarm allows us to have a platform to give the customers the specific information they need in a simple way.

Customer support is "best in class". These guys have been AWESOME partners for over 6 years. If there are ever any issues, which is seldom, they are relentless in their resolve. The platform is incredibly easy to use no matter your technical abilities, or lack there of. Easy to use vendor portal for partners to upload assets. Technology is solid.

What do you dislike?

Occasional disruptions in platform accessibility, but always quickly resolved.

One single place to collect and store digital content. Zoom functionality in our viewer on PDP's on the website.

"A company that works to improve everyday"

What do you like best?

Everything is online and accessible if you are familiar with the platform.

Fabulous customer service, from the top to the bottom, they want to make the product work the best it can for the users.

What do you dislike?

Many of our users have difficulty using the platform, I believe this to be in part to lack of general computer knowledge, but also the broad search for content does not always match the most accurately.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't use this if you need a large number of people to access the content.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Shot farm is great if you are just looking for a large filing cabinet for assets you wish to put on website and web stores so that they have an active link. We also use it for our sales force so they can access all of our content digital. The benefit of having everything in one place is great.

"Shotfarm Syndication of Content and Images frees up resources"

What do you like best?

There's a lot to like about this product, which could fit in the DAM or DM segments. However, I would consider the creation of a new segment, called "Data Syndication." The Shotfarm product combines the key features of DAM (storing and creating renditions of images, for instance) with the delivery process. This is what separates them - bringing on board retailers, creating their Switches to map data specifications to those retailers, but also being able to expose data for pickup, too, if needed. Although not a real data management solution, they provide the common ground among many customers that is still being highly used ... spreadsheets. However, if those customers are beyond that integration, using WebServices will soon be an option on the front end.

What do you dislike?

Integration is being addressed. I would like to see more specifications for best practices or possible conversion of video files.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your intention is to have a hands off syndication process and to eliminate the hunt-and-peck mentality of providing images to your retailers, this solution is for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Resource relief of finding, modifying and delivering content to retailers will be reduced dramatically once the full implementation is complete. This means that current resources will be able to spend their time on more important issues, and that retailers will have more data at their fingertips that is of higher quality.

"Awesome Tool with Easy Navigation"

What do you like best?

The tool allows for the simple control of content. Not only does this allow our company the ability to use the item as a PIM, but also makes it easier to push info to e-retailers.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes mass downloads are difficult - due to size constraints, downloads have to be broken down.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Shotfarm has created centralized data repository that allows efficient interaction within the organization.
