HOW IT WORKS
Each asset is carefully logged and can be assigned as much detailed information as the client wishes, making future searches precise and efficient. Before cataloging begins we discuss with clients their requirements, ensuring that the information entered will allow the effective searching and retrieval of material. This feature gives your inventory a face: you will become more familiar with your assets and their whereabouts, without expending any active time or energy thinking about them.
We have configured our system so that paper documents and film and video can be cross-referenced. This means that a tape and its corresponding production paperwork can be located simultaneously and dispatched within hours of a request. We too are a round-the-clock business, and are sympathetic to the Friday evening emergency.
WHY PREFERRED MEDIA IS THE BEST CHOICE FOR THE ADVERTISING INDUSTRY
Storing elements properly and organizing them carefully saves time and dollars in all directions – it means less time in post-production (no missing elements, no long waits, no bungled searches) and more time working on generating new business. It means more time doing great work.
The Advertising world is fast paced and time poor, often with minimal resources available for the tedious, time consuming but important and necessary task of cataloging and tracking the elements of creative projects. We go beyond traditional storage and management solutions to bring clients an intensive program designed to maximize your efficiency and performance.
Under our supervision, your assets are simultaneously out of your hair and more accessible to you than they might have been on-site. Our dynamic approach enables us to maintain not only your assets, but also your relationship with your assets. As a result, you feel a greater sense of control and ease as you navigate your busy day, knowing that our reliable engine is running beneath you.
