ENVY Post Standardises With ScheduALL

A leading UK post-production facility, ENVY Post, has standardised its project booking and resource allocation processes on the enterprise resource management system from ScheduALL, a top provider of enterprise resource management software for the broadcast and media industry.
ScheduALL enables ENVY to track and manage all video content and associated business data throughout the facility for smoother, more efficient project management and billing.
Jamie Bean, Senior Engineer at ENVY Post, said: "When we launched ENVY Post, we wanted to start off on the right foot with an advanced booking and scheduling management system, and my previous experience with ScheduALL led me to recommend it strongly over any other solution.
"ScheduALL's ability to provide a high-level view of all projects and their associated resources, data and billing information has made the system a critical element in our success."
In the months leading up to the ScheduALL implementation, ENVY managed bookings and billing by using isolated manual methods.
As the business took off, the transition to ScheduALL and its interface with an accounting system enabled ENVY to manage its rapid growth by providing an unbroken stream of automation for all bookings and financial data.
This change dramatically reduced the error potential and duplication of effort found in the old manual system.
Bean continued: "ScheduALL makes our lives a lot easier by saving time, helping our producers to be more productive, and giving us the intelligence we need to make informed decisions for future resource allocations.
"This has been especially important as we've expanded to two locations, with a third opening soon."
At ENVY Post ScheduALL provides a single, unified interface that producers and librarians use to track the movement of video content throughout the operation and see real-time information, such as project scope, hours budgeted and actual hours incurred, within the work order.
At any given point in the workflow, producers can view the status of the project and its location in the facility, including the editing room in use and the editors working on the project.
The system also provides a quick view of all editing rooms to show which are in use, open and booked for certain dates.
Through integration with QuickBooks, ScheduALL makes it easy for ENVY to import project time and expense data, based on each client's agreed-upon rate, directly into the accounting package to facilitate invoicing.
Joel Ledlow, CEO of ScheduALL, said: "ScheduALL was specifically designed to meet the needs of companies, like ENVY Post, that are dealing with rapid growth and an explosion of information that needs to be accessed and managed efficiently throughout the lifecycle of a video project.
"By providing a high-level view into every aspect of a job and all metadata associated with it, ScheduALL is giving ENVY's producers and business managers alike an important tool for more profitable and effective operations.
