Hollywood, FL – November 29, 2011 – ScheduALL has announced that Links Broadcast, one of the UK’s leading providers of broadcast services and facilities, has selected the company’s industry-leading ScheduLINK system to schedule and manage its comprehensive transmission distribution needs, including feeds, uplinks, satellite trucks and business resources.
As a growing satellite service provider, Links Broadcast had been leveraging an in-house spreadsheet system, based on Microsoft® Excel, to handle its scheduling and management needs. Over time and as the business grew, the company broadened its services to include high definition and standard definition satellite broadcast, production facilities and satellite ground services. In addition, its client base and demand for services has grown to include the UK’s leading broadcasters, production companies and video content producers.
As a result, Links Broadcast determined that its bespoke system had limitations and could no longer effectively manage the increasing scope and complexity of services, so it turned to ScheduALL which was most notably recognized as the industry standard.
“As we continue to expand our operations, it is crucial that every phase of our resource scheduling, utilization and reporting is managed and monitored with the highest degree of accuracy and efficiency,” said Paul Airey, Head of Broadcast Services for Links Broadcast. “Many of the broadcast industry’s largest Occasional Use players are using ScheduALL, and I am well aware of the company’s reputation for best of breed technologies and excellent customer service. We are a rapidly growing company, so it was an easy decision to move to ScheduALL due to of the product’s breadth and ease of configuration.”
While ScheduLINK is the system of choice of the world’s largest transmission providers, Joel Ledlow, CEO of ScheduALL, is delighted to have more service providers join the community of users.“Links Broadcast’s successful implementation proves that our "SMB" package is providing robust ScheduLINK functionality at a price point growing service providers can afford,” he said. “While we successfully serve the industry’s largest providers, our products are also of significant value to clients of all sizes across the wider transmission community.”
Links Broadcast has also expressed future interest in ScheduALL’s groundbreaking ERMa and AVvA technologies, which enable other transmission, broadcast and truck operators to make bookings in real time system to system across the ScheduALL user community. This added functionality allows customers to view and book specific offerings faster, with greater visibility and reporting than ever before.
