Skyview’s innovative solutions for managing play-by-play inventory provide our broadcast department the full control and accessibility they require.
Phoenix, Ariz. (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
The New York Giants, winners of two of the last five Super Bowls, and Skyview Networks announced a new multi-year agreement for inventory management services. Skyview, an integrated professional sports distribution company specializing in play-by-play broadcast systems, will provide its F.A.S.T. Inventory Management Software and Live Read Logging Service to the New York Giants. The partnership aims to increase control over advertiser scheduling and to streamline as-played reporting.
“Skyview’s innovative solutions for managing play-by-play inventory provide our broadcast department the full control and accessibility they require for scheduling advertisers and guaranteeing contract fulfillment,” commented Mike Stevens, CMO of the New York Giants.
In preparation of the 2012 National Football League season, the Giants partnered with Skyview Networks for installation and training of the F.A.S.T. Inventory Management solution. F.A.S.T., installed at the Giants Executive Offices, will provide the sales and traffic departments a user-friendly interface that provides a panoramic view of all contracts, inventory and scheduling. F.A.S.T. is uniquely tailored to the non-linear nature of play-by-play sports and provides flexible spot scheduling (its direct log access allows last minute scheduling changes and spot check reports for accuracy).
“We are proud to announce our partnership with the reigning Super Bowl Champions,” said Ken Thiele, president of Skyview Networks. “We have enjoyed working closely with the Giants in preparation for the 2012 season and we are confident they will see value in the efficiency of our inventory systems. We look forward to a long lasting partnership with this esteemed franchise and to a successful season ahead.”
Also included in the agreement, Skyview Networks’ Live Read Logging Service, will capture all on air mentions of radio broadcasts. The Live Read Logging service, paired with F.A.S.T., will provide all radio as-played reporting and affidavit generation for contract fulfillment purposes.
The New York Giants radio broadcast is hosted by Bob Papa with color analyst Carl Banks. Broadcasts can be heard on flagship station WFAN 660 AM and its radio network of 22 affiliates across the Northeast. For more information on the New York Giants radio broadcast, visit http://www.giants.com.
