Case Study: CBS Television City
CBS Television City
CBS Television City in Los Angeles is a $100 million a year production facility. Over the past 50 years it has hosted the production of many of television’s most famous shows, including the longest running five-days-a-week game show in the world, ”The Price Is Right”. Its eight soundstages range in size up to 15,000 square feet. More than 600 operations employees in over 60 departments provide virtually every service a television producer could want.
Before implementing Xytech, CBS Television City used a number of paper-based and mainframe-hosted legacy system to manage scheduling and billing with very little integration between the various systems. Producers would request backup detail on invoices, which would drive up costs while the facility manually researched and delivered the details, and delay payment by as much as six months. Meanwhile, the double data entry required to produce consolidated invoices also meant that invoices were subject to inaccuracies.
After a thorough industry search and contemplation of an array of different solutions, CBS Television City chose the Xytech. The Xytech solution has dramatically increased the productivity of CBS Television City’s production, scheduling, and billing operations.
