runVT

Support team’s always been there even when we have been working on bank holiday weekends and we’ve had problems, they’ve been there to help out and they got it fixed literally within half an hour. They’ve been great!

At the Media Production & Technology Show, we had the pleasure of interviewing Joe Tickle, post producer at runVT who spearheaded the integration of farmerswife and Cirkus. Joe shared how implementing these tools revolutionized their workflow.

The Challenge

runVT, a bustling post-production company, was experiencing significant challenges managing their operations. Joe explained, “Before we had farmerswife, we were really busy, and we were struggling to get everything through the systems properly.” They needed a tool that helped them manage their workflow effectively. 

The Solution

The introduction of farmerswife marked a turning point for runVT. Joe noted a remarkable change during their next busy period after integrating the new system: “Soon as we got farmerswife and in our next busy period, everything became so much easier. Booking staff with our MCR team became not even a problem.” The seamless integration of farmerswife into their workflow simplified their processes and alleviated the pressure on the team.

The Workflow

Joe provided insights into how farmerswife and Cirkus streamlined their operations: “Our workflow for farmerswife goes all the way from the booking operatives, to the creatives, to the MCR team, and also to the runners now.” The system’s versatility made it invaluable across various functions within the company. It was particularly effective for:

  • Scheduling Meetings: “It’s great for booking in meetings.”
  • Managing Holidays and Absences: “It’s great for booking in holidays. For absences, for sickness.”
  • Tracking Sessions and Tasks: “For anything from what sessions people are booked on to, to what jobs and tasks are associated with that.”

farmerswife also facilitated seamless communication with their bookings team through integration with Cirkus, enhancing visibility and coordination: “All being fed through Cirkus to our bookings team and also we can see it on the schedule in farmerswife.”

Exceptional Support

The exceptional support provided by farmerswife’s team was another highlight for Joe. He emphasized their reliability and efficiency: “Support team’s always been there even when we have been working on bank holiday weekends and we’ve had problems, they’ve been there to help out and they got it fixed literally within half an hour. They’ve been great!” This unwavering support ensured minimal downtime and maximized operational efficiency, even during critical times.

The implementation of farmerswife at runVT has been a resounding success. It has not only addressed their initial challenges but has also enhanced their overall workflow, from booking and scheduling to task management and support. Joe Tickle’s testimonial underscores the transformative impact of farmerswife, making it an indispensable tool for runVT’s continued success.
