Italian broadcaster streamlines billing with Xytech software
Teletutto, a broadcast programming provider serving more than 3 million viewers in the Lombardia region of Italy, has selected Xytech Systems' software to automate its scheduling and billing operations.
The broadcaster was looking for a comprehensive scheduling and billing system to manage both the creative and technical staff at various places within the facility, and one that could handle the cross-charge requirements for its local media production work. The Xytech Systems software provides Teletutto with a complete end-to-end workflow solution, including integrated scheduling of people, rooms and equipment as well as all financial aspects of completed media work.
In addition to news, sports and current affairs programming, Teletutto also provides creative and production services to local businesses that require advertising and can create promotional content to be aired on its various channels. These spots range from simple indents and on-air screen bugs to full-length commercials. Though they are part of the Teletutto operation, such projects are billed separately, which can lead to complex cross-divisional invoicing and resource scheduling.
System integration consultants from Xytech Systems' European headquarters in London completed the installation and the software is now in use throughout the facility.
