ABOUT US

When you get right down to it, you can say that we provide a kind of ERP system for media companies that offer their viewers content on diverse channels and platforms. It consists of modular software solutions that come as desktop applications or web-based applications in the cloud.

What we particularly pride ourselves on is that we optimise and automate the life cycles of content and streamline the customer’s content supply chain from acquisition over planning, scheduling and rights management to publication and beyond.

And to think that we started out in 1992 as software buffs who helped the first commercial channel in Flanders move away from Excel sheets and handwritten programme schedules. Now, after more than a quarter century of close collaboration with an ever growing international customer community, we rank among the top of tech vendors in the international media industry.

In this age of accelerating change with people watching video content anywhere anytime on an increasing array of devices, our innovative software solutions are at the heart of future-proof media operation ecosystems.

Our customers include public and commercial radio and TV stations, on-demand platforms, OTT streamers, telcos and their service providers.  BBC, Discovery, Viacom, … they all go for growth in this excitingly fast-paced media world. And we are proud to be right by their side.
