Have you ever calculated how much time you spend trawling files and folders to find information?
Collaborating on large, fast-paced productions using online file directories such as Sharepoint, Google Drive, and Dropbox can become confusing and inefficient as projects progress, information multiplies, and team members come and go.
But hold onto your seats because Lumi is revolutionising the game! Say goodbye to old-school and step into a content production-focused environment that goes beyond ordinary data management.
What sets Lumi apart? What impressed the MIPCOM 2023 Content Awards judges enough to grant Lumi the “Sustainability and Innovation Award”? And why are TV and entertainment companies, including renowned names like ITV, WTFN, AFL Media and Nova Radio, switching?
The Convergence of Data, Workflow, and Communication
While platforms like Sharepoint can capture disparate data sources, Lumi takes it a step further, focusing on what happens after the data has been collected and how that data is turned into a great TV show. The convergence of data, workflow, and communication drives positive productivity by connecting the whole team to the whole story, providing immediate context for every role.
