HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — Sept. 4, 2008 — ScheduALL, the leading provider of enterprise resource management (ERM) software for the broadcast and media industries launches its 2008 Executive Advisory Board. The first non-U.S. meeting is set for Nov. 10-11 in London. During the two-day meeting, representatives from numerous media and broadcasting companies throughout Europe and Asia will directly interact with ScheduALL personnel and address specific challenges facing their businesses.
ScheduALL formed the Advisory Board to provide trusted industry leaders with a forum to openly communicate with the ScheduALL team as well as their peers to share ideas relative to the media and broadcast industries. The Advisory Board consists of a select group of professionals from broadcasting, transmission, and post production companies familiar with the ScheduALL system.
"Client input is critical to a company's long-term success. We expect our Executive Advisory Board to play a key role in helping us understand the issues that are important to our clients and their businesses, and how we as an organization can continue to add value," said Joel Ledlow, CEO of ScheduALL. "The members of the board represent a good cross section of our market, and each is known for its technology innovation and industry leadership."
On the first day of the meeting, ScheduALL executives will share their insights into the broadcasting and media space, with information they have gleaned from analysts and other industry sources. The program will include presentations from several board members themselves. The rest of the meeting will be devoted to an open forum in which members will offer feedback about ScheduALL's customer care, product functionality, and how they would like to see both the product and company evolve into the future. Going forward, each board member will receive a quarterly report from ScheduALL which describes the progress made on the items discussed in the meeting.
"In my experience, you can buy many types of market research and expert opinion, but none of it is as effective as the feedback and opinions of the trusted community of people who have a vested interest in seeing your company succeed," said Ledlow. "With the Executive Advisory Board, the message is clear, ScheduALL is listening. We're concerned about what our clients are facing and we want to be the partner who helps them accomplish their future objectives."
In addition to the London meeting, ScheduALL will host Executive Advisory Board meetings in the U.S. on Nov. 3-4 in Los Angeles and on Nov. 6-7 in New York. More information about ScheduALL and its software solutions is available online at www.scheduall.com.
