WCSN Launches VCI Solutions' Orion
World Championship Sports Network
has launched VCI Solutions' Orion
as its key business system for sales, traffic, and accounting operations.
WCSN, a 24/7 cable network that offers Olympic and lifestyle sports coverage, is creating a business model that is continually evolving as a direct result of multiple stream formats, sporting event times, contracts, formats, and sponsorships. The Orion system accommodates this business model by providing flexibility in avail types and secondary billing.
Orion's ability to integrate and interface with other systems, such as automation and program management streamlines operations further for a more automated workflow. Features include non-timed avail management, multiple engines, import legacy system history, and enhanced InVision DealMaker integration.
"As we continue to grow and evolve with the media industry, we need to make our operation more efficient to maximize our revenue for a greater ROI," said Carlos Silva, president and chief operating officer of WCSN. "Orion's versatility and reliability are major attributes to our future growth and success."
VCI, a supplier of media revenue solutions for the broadcast and cable industry has offices in Springfield, Mass., and Austin, Texas.
