Jobs vary from business as usual on-air promo production to large-scale 360 Marketing campaigns with 100s of deliverables across print, digital, outdoor, cinema and on-air.
SBS also uses the job number generated by farmerswife in our production workspaces so the database in farmerswife helps us locate old projects and files in our archive.
On a large project, we have teams of creatives that include a mix of full-time staff, freelancers and external companies. farmerswife allows us to not just manage the resource bookings but also track costs against the budget differentiating resources that include a cost to buy.
As we have varying levels of work in the department we often employ freelance Producers to manage the campaigns. The work we have done to set up the system with budget templates and rate cards mean that with a small amount of training on the simple tasks within farmerswife, a new team member can be up and running quickly with the all-important financial management of the projects happening automatically in the background.
The support team at farmerswife have worked with SBS Australia to customize the programme to ensure it meets our current requirements and are also there on site to assist with adapting the programme as the department develops.
