The recently launched Cloud-based Production Management Platform called “eTribez Production Management,” developed by Israel-based e-Tribez Inc., which debuted its first module, “Production Planning,” in January 2019, has just launched two additional modules: “Locations Management” and “Staffing & Crew Management.” The eTribez Production Management Platform is available to producers of content on a global basis working across the entertainment, broadcasting, promo, and advertising industries. The announcement was made today by Eli Abayan, CEO/Co-Founder, eTribez, Inc.
In related news, eTribez’s Los Angeles-based executives Ted Bookstaver and Diahnna Baxter will be on hand to discuss the new platform on Wednesday, April 3rd, during NPACT’s first annual “Content Tech” event on the West Coast. The Content Tech event will showcase products and services that support the production process, specifically those using technology to make things more efficient and cost effective for production companies.
The benefits to producers of eTribez’s Production Management Platform are an easy to use, Cloud-based platform that is accessible from any device, updates in real time, and features a number of integrated, complementary “Modules,” each communicating with each other. The new platform unifies and synchronizes every aspect of the production process via one centralized solution – historically, these production processes have never before been inter-connected. Designed to perform on a studio level, the eTribez Production Management Platform is highly secure, has been ISO 27001 and SOC 2 certified, and is GDPR compliant.
Regarding the first U.S. public demonstration of eTribez’s new Production Management Platform, Michelle Van Kempen, Head of Policy & Development for NPACT, said, “In this time of change and evolution for the industry, it’s more important than ever for productions to operate as efficiently as possible. NPACT’s Content Tech events are an exciting way by which to introduce the advanced products and technologies at the forefront of those efforts to producers and key staff. We’re thrilled to feature eTribez’s new Production Management Platform at our West Coast event.”
New eTribez Modules available now:
Locations Management: The eTribez Locations Management Module allows producers to manage the scouting, contracting, and assignment of locations. Producers can add location data such as general info, location maps with Google Maps integration, rates, photos location videos, and more. Location plans, which are managed in the Account Catalog for each individual production, each can be designated as unscripted or scripted TV, or Film, in which case the location plan will be automatically connected to the Script Breakdown and Stripboard within the eTribez platform.
Staffing & Crew Management: The eTribez’ Staff & Crew Management Module is a powerful tool designed to help producers manage the recruitment, contracting, assignment and onboarding of crew members, along with their management in the Catalog and within each production.The module allows for easy organization and structure of each production’s staff, and can help assign crew members to production roles. Each production structure can quickly be built from templates or previous productions – and allows for the definition of units, departments and roles. The online staffing module allows the production team to fully manage the hiring, negotiations, contracting and staffing process of the production crew – all from one convenient, cloud-based location.
Production Planning: The eTribez Production Planning Module helps producers manage their long-term timeline and day-to-day activities. These tools include building a general timeline, creating a day-to-day planning calendar, and setting up a detailed shooting plan, breakdown, stripboard, call sheets, daily reports, and time tracking.
Additional Modules slated to become available during 2019 inlude:
Cast Management, Onboarding, Resource Management, Cross Production, Budget & Finance, Content Development/IP Management, and Legal.
