UKTV streamlines with SintecMedia
November 7, 2008
UKTV has rolled out an integrated management system across its broadcast portfolio, resulting in company-wide benefits – including implementing its ambitious network rebrand without bringing in extra staff and freeing up time to further craft its 10 channels’ schedules.
Following a development and implementation process the new broadcast management system ‘OnAir’ from SintecMedia replaced two business systems (BSS and PRESET) and six internally developed systems. OnAir has given UKTV the power to manage its network scheduling more effectively, while reducing duplication of information and manpower. Set to save at least 18,500 man-hours on an annual basis, OnAir is currently being used by more than 140 staff out of 190 across the UKTV business and other suppliers.
