WHATS’ON Academy on Rights
15 Mar. 2018 -
All seats were taken for our Master Class on Rights & Contracts in WHATS’ON. Key users from various sites came to Brussels to learn the ins and outs of the WHATS’ON Contract & Rights module.
This module enables media companies to easily manage very complex linear and nonlinear rights across platforms and have their planning/schedules automatically validated against the rights and restrictions described in the module. By knowing the real-time value of their schedule and the programmes in stock, they can minimise waste and monitor their budget and cash flow with amortization plans and payment schedules.
As the Master Class took place on Pi Day (March 14 = 3.14), we treated the participants to … pie.

Among fastest growing companies
8 Feb. 2018 -
On 7 February MEDIAGENIX was nominated as 'Trends Gazelle' for Flemish Brabant (Belgium).
The annual ‘Trends Gazelles’ nominations, hosted by Belgian’s foremost business and finance magazine, Trends, celebrate the fastest growing Belgian companies per region and company size (large, medium and small) on the basis of their growth in revenue, staff and added value over a period of five years. Trends Gazelles are considered engines of innovation and inspiring role models for other companies.
We see this nomination as another tribute to the mastery of the close MEDIAGENIX tribe and long-standing partnerships with a global and strong customer community. Both enable MEDIAGENIX to stay ahead of the curve amid disrupting changes in the media landscape.
