Volicon launches Reconciliation Report module
Volicon has released a new Reconciliation Report module as an option for the Observer digital video monitoring and logging system that provides comprehensive and near-real-time content reconciliation and discrepancy reporting.
Developed through Volicon's partnership with Floripa Integration, the module is an extension of the Observer, which instantly compares as-run data from the automation system with the original traffic schedule to identify discrepancies. A difference is immediately noted and sent to traffic and sales via e-mail. Master control operators can annotate the reconciled log with a description of the discrepancy for later reference by the accounting and traffic departments. Because the reconciliation happens close to real time, stations have a higher chance of making good on a missed commercial in the same day.
