CBC implements scheduling system across English-language networks

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) is supporting English-language television and radio networks at its Canadian broadcast center in Toronto. The company has installed new scheduling software across the networks to centralize status reporting of facilities and to streamline the broadcaster's resource booking and business procedures.

The new scheduling software from ScheduALL accounts for the structure of the CBC's broadcast plants around the country, rolling production, post-production, design, graphics and other departments into one platform that optimizes facility booking, reduces error and helps to increase overall productivity. Booking is transparent so that resources from the different plants can be used in planning and scheduling future events or projects.

When first launched, the ScheduALL system at the CBC supported 250 of the company's Vancouver employees and 10 core users. Since then, it has been rolled out across the English-language television and radio networks, and today it is used for 2,800 employees and by 300 users across Canada. The CBC has leveraged the software's flexibility to modify interfaces to mirror the corporation's business environment. The ScheduALL software allows the CBC to create forms on-the-fly and independently, which has enabled the broadcaster to perform rapid customization to serve its immediate business needs.
