Digipost Expands ScheduALL Implementation to Realize Real-Time Remote Scheduling

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — July 22, 2009 — ScheduALL today announced that Digipost, New Zealand’s first digital post-production facility, is extending its ScheduALL Enterprise Resource Management (ERM) software to include Web-based scheduling capabilities. The Auckland-based firm uses ScheduALL software to schedule and invoice all of its rooms, personnel, and resources and to catalog and label tape-based media. Implementation of the WebScheduler module will enable management of these resources remotely and in real time.

“Our facility is a long-time ScheduALL customer, and over the years, the software’s flexibility and its continued modular approach has allowed us to grow the system along with our operations,” said Garry Little, managing director at Digipost. “ScheduALL not only simplifies resource management, but also provides a variety of tools valuable to maintaining our performance and reaching revenue targets. The addition of WebScheduler will give our staff even greater flexibility in leveraging those tools.”

The ScheduALL system at Digipost enables efficient management of resources across the company. In addition to scheduling 47 full-time staff and several part-time contractors, the software manages allocation of three telecine and color grading rooms; 15 Avid® suites; four audio rooms; a Smoke, two Flame, an Inferno, and two Flare systems; 3-D animation; a digital intermediate (DI) grading theater; and the facility’s cinetape dubbing and duplication area.

The Digipost team relies on ScheduALL’s robust reporting capabilities to deliver real-time information for daily and strategic decision making, and it has considerable influence over the company’s capital expenditure decisions. All departments across Digipost —bookings, producers, sales, and management, in particular — use ScheduALL to connect, coordinate, and track current and future client work.

The company also uses ScheduALL to invoice its clients promptly, speed reconciliation of payments, and to track and identify overdue accounts, all of which help Digipost to maintain a strong financial position. Of the many reports generated by ScheduALL, the unbilled sessions report provides the information necessary to chase missing or incomplete paperwork, and to finalize billing at the end of each month. By providing ledger reports of room and resource usage as well as revenue generated, the software delivers valuable cost analysis tools so that managers can monitor the performance of all areas of the business.

“Digipost is one of the top companies in New Zealand and Australia, who are leading the charge in leveraging ScheduALL to improve their competitive advantage and succeed in a challenging market,” said Joel Ledlow, CEO of ScheduALL. “We have a long history of working together and we appreciate their continued investment in our solutions as a way to accelerate their growth and profitability.”
