Encompass Digital Media selects ScheduALL to support worldwide growth
October 13, 2011
ScheduALL has announced a partnership with Encompass Digital Media, the rapidly expanding global digital media services expert. Encompass has selected ScheduALL’s technologies to manage its comprehensive transmission distribution services in the US and abroad.
Encompass will utilise ScheduLINK, the advanced transmission management solution, and a suite of operational modules to manage its global feeds, uplinks, trucks and business resources. The company has also selected ERMa, ScheduALL’s revolutionary collaboration tool currently utilizsd by CBS, SES and other global broadcast leaders, and Hitch, ScheduALL’s new mobile access platform. These technologies will enable Encompass to manage and sell bandwidth, book freelancers and truck operators, connect to ScheduLINK remotely from smartphones and tablets, and collaborate with other leading broadcast and transmission partners across the supply chain.
With Encompass’ global expansion over the last two years, it became evident the company needed a more robust platform that could not only manage the increased complexities in the marketplace, but also enable scalability and collaboration with other broadcast and transmission industry players. Due diligence revealed that ScheduALL’s unique technologies provided the capabilities they needed to efficiently and cost-effectively manage this growth.
“We looked at the major players in this space and found that industry leader ScheduALL provides the best of class technologies we require to support our dynamic growth and rapidly expanding customer base,” said Chris Myers, Executive Vice President of Worldwide Occasional Services for Encompass. “We are confident that ScheduALL’s successful track record of growth, innovation and customer service will provide us with the systems we need across our global operation.”
Joel Ledlow, CEO of ScheduALL, is equally enthusiastic about Myer’s assessment and vote of confidence. “Both Encompass and ScheduALL are forging new paths of connectivity and collaboration, and successfully challenging old ideas about the ways the media and broadcast industry does business,” he said. “Both companies share a deep commitment to strategic growth, forward-thinking ideas and passion for listening to and servicing our clients. We are excited to partner with such a dynamic industry leader and look forward to supporting Encompass’ continued growth.”
