SDS enhances data management for GlassBOX Television
Specialty Data Systems (SDS) will consolidate and manage data for GlassBOX Television’s multiplatform channels, BITE and AUX.
Using SDS’s flagship broadcast management software, SDS Symphony, the Canadian multiplatform channel GlassBOX benefits by having a common database to integrate sales, traffic, programming, operations and accounting. The system enables instantaneous communication between stations and eliminates the need for data reentry and crossverification.
With SDS Symphony, information can be shared across departments without the need to rekey information or use paper. Users can access information online in real time, and data is filtered and formatted to meet specific needs. This includes programming airtime, booking orders, scheduling promos, enforcing credit rules and producing sales and commission reports.
