Business monitoring in a constrained environment
The film industry is by nature very specific: it is not based on civil calendar (week from Wednesday to Tuesday, day finishes at 1.30AM, not midnight), legal constraints because of redistribution rules of box office revenue, etc.
On top of that, Pathé-Gaumont, as a one-hundred-year-old company, has many internal rules and processes.
The executive team wanted to give all their coworkers access to customized and easily adoptable tools in order to reinforce real-time operational efficiency. Let's not forget, a film lasts on average 2 hours and the bulk of transactions is done minutes before the screening. It is therefore crucial for teams to be able to make decisions as quickly as possible.
These tools should especially serve objectives and take into account the following constraints:
- Monitor the activity anywhere and anytime
- Have information available in real-time
- Access confidential data in a secure environment
Customization and continuous innovation
Solutions available on the market today are non specialized and unsuited to the specificities of cinema production and its legal environment.
Personalization leads to significant additional costs while it does not guarantee automated product updates and a steady level of security. Beyond that, the management team wanted to move forward in a progressive way, starting with a first simple service that would be improved with further iterations.
