Quintiq scores success with Red Bee Media

February 13, 2012 | London, United Kingdom

Quintiq, which specialises in developing resource planning tools for broadcast production, recently implemented its solution at Red Bee Media, one of the world's leading media management companies. Red Bee Media provides multi-platform technology and creative solutions to broadcasters, content rights holders, platform operators and brand owners. Just twelve months after replacing disparate planning systems with a single solution from Quintiq, Red Bee Media's Access & Editorial Services team, which provides subtitling, signing and audio description to major broadcasters and content providers, is enjoying improved utilisation of resources.

The planning dilemma

Rapid internal growth in a fast-moving industry meant that Red Bee Media had to find a way to simplify operations, by consolidating a number of different business systems, improving processes, and providing more focused management reporting.

After reviewing four potential suppliers, Red Bee Media selected Quintiq. "They alone were able to configure their system around our operational model, rather than us having to change our processes to suit the system. It was reassuring to see how they had already achieved this in outside broadcasting, another complex scheduling and planning environment," says Nicola Greaves, Head of Operational Development, Access & Editorial Services at Red Bee Media.

Where planners previously had to cope with more than forty different spreadsheets, they now each have a single view of the whole process. This not only simplifies the planning process, it also reduces the risk of errors.

Nicola Greaves added: "One of the major factors in our success has been the people at Quintiq. They employed a very effective way of modelling their system during the implementation phase to match our way of doing things. If I compare this with other projects, the quality of Quintiq's business consultants is extremely high. Ours is a difficult business to understand, a very specialised market, and they impressed us with how quickly they got to grips with the complexities."
