Comprehensive IBMS Express Comprises Content, Sales, Rights & OnDemand Modules Deployable as End-to-End/Stand-Alone Solutions
August 21, 2013 --
Pilat Media announced today that it will demonstrate its complete IBMS Express product suite at IBC2013. Ideal for smaller and developing media businesses, IBMS Express is a modular, quick-to-deploy, easy-to-configure and maintain business management system derived from the company's award-winning Integrated Broadcast Management System (IBMS). IBMS Express addresses the full gamut of management functions including scheduling, media, airtime sales, traffic, and reporting for linear and on-demand multiscreen services with a streamlined workflow and user interface.
Deployed as a cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), IBMS Express offers a "pay-as-you-grow" pricing model, minimizing IT investment and maintenance as well as reducing up-front deployment capital. IBMS Express is designed to be easily configured and ready for use in a matter of weeks, with Pilat Media's professional services team providing configuration, training, and ongoing maintenance of the live system.
"Launched earlier this year, IBMS Express' streamlined workflow and SaaS capabilities are already helping small broadcast operations turn into efficient multi-channel and multi-platform businesses," said Fabrice Beer-Gabel, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Pilat Media. "Our extensive experience in broadcast management best practices, combined with our innovative and flexible software design, enables us to uniquely deliver new levels of efficiency and scalability to support the evolving needs of smaller broadcasters."
Pilat Media's IBMS Express product suite currently comprises Content, Sales, Rights, and OnDemand modules that can be deployed as stand-alone or end-to-end solutions. The Content Express solution allows users to schedule and manage media assets throughout the broadcast lifecycle. Sales Express provides a multichannel, multilanguage, and multicurrency system for advertising sales activities including proposal and order entry, inventory management, pre-emptions, make-goods, and revenue reporting. Rights Express offers a platform for capturing multidimensional rights to support a wide range of delivery platforms and interactive services. OnDemand Express provides a solution with powerful tools for managing nonlinear services, including catalog offers and service navigation.
