About:
Spiegel TV is one of the leading television distributors in Germany. We have been operating since 1988. Over the last 30 years, we have provided content to ARD, Arte, BBC, Discovery Channel, National Geographic and media companies around the world. Initially for a weekly program with one editing suite, later also for news and various television program formats with up to 20 editing suites, studio, audio editing and graphic suites.

THE CHALLENGE

For a long time our disposition and planning was carried out with whiteboards and self-developed lists. We needed a tool to plan and bill more efficiently. Especially in this fast-moving time, we need to react better to changes and have less downtime. Crucial was also to have a quick overview of utilization and costs.

THE SOLUTION

The farmerswife cloud scheduling solution delivers instant connection and collaboration for the Spiegel TV Disposition team with all their current remote workers.

We are using farmerswife in our day-to-day business, where a small team is planning the entire Post Production department for the various programs and monthly projects.

Operators will receive notifications on new jobs with relevant information. After job completion they can submit time reports and comments to the planning team. Freelancers receive their contracts with contractual information directly via email from the system.

With farmerswife we can react faster to changes and have less downtime. We are planning more efficiently and can thus achieve cost reduction.

Thanks to the many possibilities and features, farmerswife can be adapted to changing requirements at any time.

THE SUPPORT

The support was particularly high and helpful in the initial phase and was supplemented by educational sessions. But even after that, the support is always available and very reliable.
