and licensing agency, announced today that they have expanded their deployment of WestEnd Software’s Workspace licensing solution to include administration of style guides, management of product catalogs and for all customer relationship (CRM) activities. By leveraging the complete portfolio of Workspace applications, One Entertainment can now more fully collaborate with licensors, licensees and manufacturers to ensure products are being getting to market as quickly as possible.
“The initial implementation phase of the WestEnd Software – focused on rights management and product development – went beyond our expectations,” says David Gebel, managing partner, One Entertainment. “We decided to commit to additional functionalities – asset management and CRM – to truly integrate all our key operations in one system. We are excited to be able to provide such added value to our licensor and licensee partners.”
“WestEnd Software and One Entertainment have forged a great partnership and we continue to expand the ways in which Workspace can support and deliver value across the One Entertainment enterprise and ecosystem,” said Zeljko Rakocevic, President of WestEnd Software. “By further enabling licensees and licensors to execute critical tasks within One Entertainment’s Workspace deployment, key benefits are being realized including faster product approvals, increased communication and ultimately getting product to market more efficiently. One Entertainment is now in a position to fully realize the advantages the Workspace solution can deliver in all aspects of their licensing program.”
By utilizing the Workspace “Assets” module, One Entertainment now has a single location to manage all digital assets, including IP files, product records and the style guides of their licensor partners. Additionally, One Entertainment can now enable their licensees to securely access the Assets module in order to view and download these files and collaborate more effectively across the program. With regards to customer/partner management, the CRM capabilities within Workspace provide for activity tracking, opportunity assessments, automated communications as well as alerts and notifications of critical events and transactions.
