In order to streamline their facilities management for the modern era, WGBH Television and Radio of Boston has turned to Xytech’s MediaPulse for facility and asset management.

wgbh 16 april 2018The two companies are original members of PBS and National Public Radio in the US, and
Erik Nordin, technical project manager at WGBH, said the user-friendly features of MediaPulse Sky, the software’s web-based user interface, is what first drew the station to the software.

“We were an enterprise client of Xytech’s for many years and had a long relationship with them,” he said. “We decided it was time to take the next step in streamlining our facilities management. We chose to deploy MediaPulse within our instance with the Sky Web UI, letting us do zero-touch deployment, a heavy focus on mobile and no client installation. Those were really important features for us.”

WGBH also chose to deploy MediaPulse in its creative department, an area requiring some of the same scheduling and billing needs as WGBH’s existing MediaPulse users. WGBH worked with Xytech director of product integration and workflow automation, Tanmay Goel, helped WGBH to create a customised solution.

“Our creative department had a few challenges we felt we could address with MediaPulse Sky,” Nordin explained. “So, we worked with Goel and MediaPulse’s API structure to do some really fun things. We are really pleased with where we are right now with MediaPulse Sky.”
