CBC Taps ScheduALL to Manage Operations
Canadian Broadcasting Corp. has selected ScheduALL's end-to-end operations management software to support its English-language television and radio networks.

CBC is deploying the software across the networks to centralize status reporting of facilities and to streamline the broadcaster's resource booking and business procedures. Installed at the Canadian Broadcast Centre in Toronto, ScheduALL accounts for the structure of CBC's broadcast plants around the country, rolling production, post-production, design, graphics and other departments.

The ScheduALL system at the CBC supports 2,800 employees and 300 users across Canada. The software allows the CBC to create forms on the fly and independently. Booking is also transparent so that resources from the different plants can be used in planning and scheduling future events or projects.

"We operate in five time zones, broadcasting over both radio and television, and ScheduALL software gives us the distinct advantage of being able to schedule all of our resources across the organization and to measure the efficiency with which we're utilizing those resources," said Gary Fisher, project leader for CBC.

CBC/Radio-Canada reaches Canadians--in English, French, and eight aboriginal languages--through eight national radio and television networks, Web sites, local/regional stations and affiliates, as well as the digital television channel, Country Canada, and the music network Galaxie.
