Productive Is Tandem X Visual’s One-Stop Shop for Managing Work

Tandem X Visuals is a social media production agency that drives brand and business growth through photography, video production, and social media marketing services. Always on the run, they needed an overview of their business and projects at all times. We spoke with a part of their team to learn about the success they’ve experienced since they’ve been running their agency in Productive.

Can you tell us a bit about Tandem X Visuals?

We’re a video production agency based in Saskatchewan, Canada. Our focus is social media production through photography and video production. As a company, we believe that everyone has a story to be told and a way to represent that with visual excellence.

What were you using before Productive? Why did Productive make sense for your business?

Wyatt: As one of the owners of a video production company, Productive made a lot of sense for us just because of the scale of our business and the locations that we’re at, and the number of projects we have on the go. Productive allowed us to take everything that was up in the air and put it down into one spot, so we have an overview look and know exactly what’s happening at all times with the business.

Zach: One of the reasons why we chose Productive was because of how scalable it is and how customizable it is to our company’s specific needs.

Josh: Productive really gives us everything we need as a production company. There’s more than just resource planning, there’s more than just scheduling, there’s more than just budgets, there’s more than just task management. Productive allows us to run our entire company. It really is our one-stop shop for everything we would need to run our business.

Productive really gives us everything we need as a production company. There’s more than just resource planning, there’s more than just scheduling, there’s more than just budgets, there’s more than just task management. Productive allows us to run our entire company. It really is our one-stop shop for everything we would need to run our business.

How has Productive specifically helped you in your roles?

Marshall: As an editor, Productive makes my day a lot easier. Everything from the organization to our communication with the rest of the production team. It’s really important for me to keep focus and not constantly be stepping away from what I’m doing to check in on any questions that I may have.

Productive allows me to just very easily check in on a project, without completely detracting my attention from what I’m working on. Allowing me to stay in a good groove and keep my focus where it’s meant to be. I can very easily leave a comment for my producer or videographers on the same project. It’s just a really simple way of keeping conversations organized by project.

Josh: When I look at how Productive really helped grow our business, I look at the individualized impact that the software had. Every person in our company has a slightly different role—from videographers to video editors, to project managers, to video producers, to digital marketing managers. Everyone on the team has a different set of responsibilities.

Productive allowed us to navigate an autonomous workflow and the happiness I can see in employees when they’re able to just work and just deliver their best, and not worry about operational burdens and gigantic checklists or anything… I look at that and I go “that’s a success metric for us”.

How do you feel your business has transformed?

Marshall: Productive transformed our business in the best way possible. When we first started the company, we were a smaller team and the software we were using at the time got us by, but just barely, and we knew that we needed something a little bit bigger and better, just like Productive. It allowed us to scale the company and grow with us, and give us the tools and the abilities and the reporting that we needed to grow the company.

Josh: It’s not specifically the budgets, it’s not the task lists, it’s not the projects—it’s really the happiness that Productive brings our employees. It allows them to work in the way that they want to, as opposed to being forced to run an existing system that was built for someone else, with a different set of needs.

So, Productive really allows us to cater the software around our employees, to make sure that they achieve the best they can. And when they achieve the best they can, that means, as a company—we’re achieving the best we can.
