Media and Film

Hero’s work within the film industry includes the management of kit for hire through to crew management and the recycling of film sets

Background

Procam are a leading digital television & film equipment hire facility supplying all the kit and crew needed for a shoot, working with major broadcasters, production companies and corporate blue chip clients 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.

 

Brief

Procam needed a system to manage their inventory of equipment and to manage the booking process flow from quotation, hire job composition, equipment check-in/check-out through to invoice generation.

We’ve been a very close client of Hero for the past 15 years. We were so pleased with the fact that it was tailor made to suit our needs that we have continued to use them to develop it ever since.
The software has set us apart from our competitors, who are always trying to copy us. We couldn’t have grown to where we are now without it. The working relationship we have is unparalleled and we find them accommodating and fair when it comes to managing expectation.

Head of Systems Development – Procam TV

 

Solution

The bespoke application created for Procam centres around a Gantt chart interface which displays all resources and bookings. It incorporates drag and drop functionality, graphical indicators and colour coding to give context to the information. Flexible filtering and grouping tools give them lots of options for displaying the data in a clear and concise way. The system contains a CRM module to manage clients & suppliers and create bespoke client hire templates. A warehouse module allows them to manage their stringent check-in and check-out process of equipment onto hire jobs; the teams are assisted by displays linked into the database to give staff in the warehouse an at-a-glance up-to-the-minute view of hire jobs coming in and going out.
