Streamline the commercial production workflow with all departments.
SDS Creative = Clarity
SDS Creative tracks progress every step of the way. Deadlines are flagged and tasks are managed for everyone involved in the process: writers, producers, talent, traffic, sales, and management. SDS Creative is tightly interwoven with other components of SDS Symphony, including SDS Sales and SDS Traffic to enhance and automate workflow. It is not a 3rd party standalone system reliant on interfaces, re-keying, and continual synching to keep the system up to date.
Our feature rich script writer allows you to create great looking scripts that are easy for your client and talent to understand.
Creative is finally organized. No filing cabinets or network folders full of ancient scripts. SDS Creative stores every revision of the script as well as the final creative.
SDS Creative = Control
Everyone is accountable, is in the loop, and has quick access to reports showing all projects and where they are in the process. Open the contract, look at all existing creative for the client, select the new creative, add your instructions and traffic is notified immediately of your change request.
It’s not just new copy that is tracked with SDS Creative. Revisions and Spec Spots are managed with ease. Need to revise existing creative on air? With SDS Creative, it’s easy.
Your entire enterprise can be controlled over multiple stations and markets. SDS Creative is accessible anywhere with an internet connection.
SDS Creative = Results
