Next Gen Visual Collaboration for Media Production

Working Remotely on Your Production/Post Projects

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has presented us with challenges like we have never seen before. Most media production is temporarily halted, post production companies are increasingly working from home to continue operations. While in the short term, it is going through a lot of pain and uncertainty, the production community remains hopeful. We are in the golden age of content right now and there is a sense of cautious optimism that when it is all over, the industry will bounce back bigger and stronger than before.
But this crisis, when it is over, will fundamentally change the way production and post teams work in the future. Teleworking will become more prevalent and accepted. Even before the crisis, cloud-based applications presented several benefits for an increasingly mobile and digital savvy workforce. Add business continuity caused by a pandemic to the list. As we are forced to take a collective pause, it makes sense to think proactively about how to manage or even enable this transition so you are better prepared next time. It is a good time to plan transitioning your production resource management and project management to the cloud and extend the benefits of automation and seamless collaboration to remote teams.
As you explore cloud-based project management and collaboration solutions for your production/post teams, here are the 10 questions that will help you guide your decision:
Is it a general-purpose tool with limited ability to handle production/post specific resources and workflows? How well does it support complex rate cards, labor rules, production equipment and facilities?

  1. Does the provider take time to understand your unique workflows and requirement or do they sell a turnkey solution? You want a solution that can be tailored to your unique workflows rather than the other way around.

  2. Does the solution integrate and automate everything from budgeting and resource scheduling to invoicing?

  3. How well does the solution track actual versus budgeted production costs?

  4. How does the entire team including planners and collaborators get instant updates on projects, tasks and exceptions?

  5. How easily and quickly can the solution integrate with 3rd party systems such as QuickBooks or SAP?

  6. How is the user experience easy it is for your team to learn to use the system?

  7. How easy and quick it is to deploy and migrate to the new system?

  8. Does the cloud solution provide enterprise grade security, reliability and availability?

  9. Does provider offer an early evaluation program for you to try it before you fully commit to it?

From the outset, we designed Teamium to handle production process that is increasingly becoming more on-demand, virtual and mobile. We would like to show you how we can help your migration to the cloud quickly and painlessly.
