Case Study: Sunset Gower Sunset Bronson
Sunset Gower + Sunset Bronson
The Sunset Gower and Sunset Bronson Studios comprise about 880,000 square feet of sound stages, post-production, and office space used by independent producers, movie studios and television network customers to create a wide range of original programming that is distributed all over the world. The two facilities were using separate and incompatible systems to manage their business operations. Manual and spreadsheet-based processes were inefficient, making financial analysis and reporting difficult and tedious. The company needed a single system that would support its expanding operations and also be compliant with Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) regulations.
The company selected Xytech MediaPulse as the preferred system to replace its legacy software. The project team built a test platform using data from one of the operations and worked with Xytech consultants to configure the implementation to meet the specific requirements of each of the two main facilities. The team used a single instance of MediaPulse with the system’s Divisions feature enabled in order to provide each facility with independent sets of business logic and operational preferences and also enable combined reporting.
The Sunset Gower and Sunset Bronson Studios are now operating with a fully SOX-compliant system with reporting on combined operations for multiple divisions. Facility, personnel and equipment utilization is optimized. People are spending significantly less time on paperwork and more time doing things that help the company succeed.
