Hollywood, FL – April 10, 2011 – In today’s fast-paced world – where newsgathering and getting live shots anywhere and anytime are business as usual – media and broadcast professionals require real-time connectivity and collaboration to get the job done. Now, more than ever, it’s critical that they can connect and collaborate with the home office, colleagues and strategic partners at any time to deliver the job on time, on target and on demand.
To meet these demands, ScheduALL has unveiled a robust mobile access platform, code named hitch, that puts the power of its industry-leading core scheduling system right in the hands of its user community. hitch delivers 24/7 access to ScheduALL’s comprehensive resource management and scheduling capabilities, enabling remote or mobile users to view, reserve and make real time bookings directly from their tablet or smartphone.
ScheduALL will demonstrate hitch at the 2011 NAB Show from April 11 – 14, 2011 at the Las Vegas Convention Center at its exhibit booth #SL 1705.
ScheduALL, the global market leader of scheduling and collaboration software for the broadcast and media industries, is acclaimed for its cutting edge technologies and responsive customer service. The company leveraged these two competitive strengths to create the powerful and portable mobile application, which was developed in-house in response to numerous requests from clients around the world.
"We regularly bring together groups of clients in different parts of the world to introduce our new strategic directions and products, discuss industry trends and get feedback about how we’re doing, including their wish lists for new products or services,” said Joel Nirenberg, ScheduALL’s Vice President of Product Management.
At recent meetings in New York, Los Angeles and Australia, the number one client wish was the ability to allow users to remotely access the company’s core scheduling product when they’re in the field or on the move. ScheduALL developed hitch to answer those requests.
"Our corporate philosophy has always been to allow the genius of our clients to inspire the development of new products and services to better suit their needs,” says Nirenberg. "hitch is another way ScheduALL is extending the depth of our mission-critical offerings and making genius possible.”
