About The Client

A global leader in entertainment, serving fans around the world with content that inspires, informs and entertains. Client delivers over 10,000 hours of original programming each year across deeply loved content genres.

The Problem:

Client is leader in creating programming and contents, but back office is behind the curve when it comes to collecting and analyzing data. Client was looking for a solution where they could develop a solution to analyze cost associated with each line item of the programming, such as director, writer, logistics, supplies, crew, shooting, and etc. Finding a lowest possible cost of production was the goal.

The Solution:

Our solution allowed the client to compare the production costs of similar programming, such as the cost of shooting 10 30-minute episodes in Australia. The solution also allowed the client to select the lowest acceptable cost for each line item, which helped them to establish a budget for future programming. Additionally, the solution allowed the client to engage with and view the availability of service providers who could create programming for them. As a result, the client is now able to produce programming in the most efficient manner, which has resulted in an increase in profit for the company.
The solution works by first collecting data on the production costs of similar programming. This data is then analyzed to identify the line items that have the most significant impact on the overall cost of production. Once these line items have been identified, the solution allows the client to compare the costs of different service providers for each line item. This allows the client to select the service providers that offer the lowest acceptable cost for each line item.
