Leading Satellite Services Provider Set to Deploy Powerful New Platform
NAB 2010: Booth SL-9915
– the global leader in resource, work order and asset management solutions – has announced that
has chosen MediaPulse Transmission to manage their resources and optimize bandwidth usage for their satellite communications business. MediaPulse Transmission is specifically designed to master operational issues facing broadcasters and transmission service providers and presents a noteworthy upgrade to the industry standard in this area.
On Call Communications, a leading satellite services provider specializing in mobile communications systems, will rely upon MediaPulse Transmission to manage resource and business workflows from first request through final invoicing. On Call made the decision to utilize MediaPulse Transmission based upon the strength of the platform and its ability to interface with external systems and service providers. On Call Communications utilizes bandwidth resources provided by a number of satellite service companies, so coordination of inventory is crucial. Another critical factor was the integration of bandwidth usage and management in On Call’s financial reporting systems, which was made easy with MediaPulse’s Web Service API. On Call also utilizes Xytech’s web-enabled Service Request module to facilitate direct customer ordering of services.
MediaPulse Transmission, built upon Xytech’s powerful MediaPulse platform, has the unique ability to manage and store all technical parameters, perform parameter-based conflict management, and coordinate complex satellite and fiber inventories. Complex rate cards, a revolutionary graphical interface, automated billing, and cost recovery are part of the standard feature set. These features, which were tailored for use by satellite and broadband clients, were central to On Call’s decision to select MediaPulse.
Jim Gilbert, CEO of On Call Communications, comments “It’s our goal to provide the best user experience for our clients and we continually enhance our QuickSPOT(tm) service offering to deliver just that. We believe MediaPulse will help us succeed in achieving that goal.”
Greg Dolan, Executive Vice President of Xytech Systems Corporation, noted, “On Call is a recognized leader in IP-based satellite solutions, and we know them to be forward thinking in their approach to end-to-end resource management. It is a great endorsement for us to have On Call utilizing MediaPulse Transmission. We anticipate an outstanding partnership and look forward to a long-term collaboration.”
