We’ve reviewed a number of collaboration tools including Canadian-based ConceptShare and Scotland-based Colaab. Today I took a look at Argentinian-based CreationFlow. CreationFlow is a Flash-based collaboration and project management suite.
You setup tasks inside of projects and then assign users to the tasks. The users can create reviews which is where you can draw (as shown below) to add notes to a review. I found the service a bit more difficult to get comfortable with than ConceptShare/Colaab, but once I got the hang of it, it is well designed. You can also switch the language to Spanish.
CreationFlow is more than just "stick up an image and get feedback" – it’s more like a team-based visual project management tool. It would work well for design agencies and other teams where client reviews are needed to approve tasks to continue with a project. I like the tracking component which makes it easy to confirm that a user accepted a design or other piece of creative.
I think their pricing model could use a bit of tweaking – they need to lower the number of users on the free plan to 1 or 2 (from 5) and introduce a pricing plan that’s less than their lowest plan currently at $50/month. Take the 5 user plan and set the price at $19/month or something similar. There’s just too big a jump from free to $50/month. Move them up the plans slowly I think is best.
My suggestion is to take all of the collaboration tools for a free trial with your team and determine which is best for your particular needs.
