VimBiz Broadcast Resource ManagementScheduling

Nowhere are the effects of organization and control more immediately evident than in Resource Scheduling—when things go smoothly nobody notices; when things go wrong the pains are felt right now. The VimBiz Scheduling module is the silent partner that keeps everyone organized and focused on what they should be doing, instead of distracted by what went wrong. VimBiz Scheduling enables the advanced planning and scheduling of facilities and associated roles. Role scheduling is a key VimBiz advantage—it’s much easier to schedule a studio than it is to schedule people. Studios don’t require breaks or have labor contracts that stipulate a maximum of four evening shifts per month. VimBiz Scheduling accommodates such diverse needs and can even take things a step further through integration with the Timecards sub-module. Additionally, Scheduling has the huge advantage of integration with powerful VimBiz modules, such as Assets, Service, and Rentals. What else does the powerhouse Scheduling module provide?
