Arts Alliance Media (AAM) together with the
Goldenduck Group have announced that leading Malaysian exhibitor MBO Cinemas
has fully deployed AAM’s enterprise TMS software solution, Producer.
MBO Cinemas is the first exhibitor in South East Asia to centralise
all their operations at head office with Arts Alliance Media’s Producer. From
one central point at head office, MBO can monitor and manage all content, KDMs,
reporting, and pre-show advertising and trailers.
Mariam El Bacha, Director of Operations at MBO Cinemas, said of the deployment
“Producer has revolutionised our operations. It allows us to control our cinema
circuit in the way we want much more easily, and the improved visibility means
we can resolve issues quickly and maintain our high customer service standards.
Taking full advantage of Producer’s automations means building our playlists is
faster, more flexible, and more accurate.”
Producer is designed to control and monitor the status of all the sites
in a circuit, displaying playback details in real-time and highlighting any upcoming
issues for proactive resolution. Content can be managed remotely and pre-show
packs of ads and trailers built from head office – saving staff time at sites
and reducing the possibility of human error.
Since deploying Producer, MBO’s content and monitoring operations
have been handled by a single staff member at head office. Successfully
streamlining operations and automating sites’ day to day tasks has afforded
staff time to add value in other customer-facing areas.
MBO Cinemas has been using AAM’s Theatre Management System,
Screenwriter, to manage content, playlists and scheduling on all 200 of their
screens for four years. Upgrading to Producer extends and centralises that
functionality, providing MBO with improved control and visibility across their
John Aalbers, CEO at Arts Alliance Media, added “MBO are one of our most forward-thinking customers. We are
delighted that they have embraced the concept of full automation and
centralised operations. This is clearly an emerging trend in Cinema focused on
enabling superior accuracy and quality as well as more aggressive cost control.”
