LazyTown Entertainment joined a group of over fifty leading Licensors and Agents from around the globe, when it licensed the Mediabox-PA (product approvals) software system earlier this past year. “We are so excited to be working with the LazyTown staff to help them streamline their approvals workflow. With the worldwide popularity of LazyTown and volume of SKU’s being generated, we are honored to have been selected to help optimize this process though Mediabox-PA.” says Conecture Technologies CEO Eric Rennagel. LazyTown has been using their customized Mediabox-PA system with hundreds of licensees worldwide.
"We have been very impressed with the Mediabox-PA system since we started using it in January 2010. In addition to being easy to learn and use, Mediabox has helped us streamline our process, resulting in faster turnaround times. We estimate that since implementing Mediabox, we have reduced turnaround time by approximately 50%. It’s great to have all material and comments regarding a submission in one place, as well as to be able to generate reports with a couple of clicks and add reviewer team members to individual projects when needed. After using Mediabox we can’t imagine going back to our old system!" commented Maria Valles, an approvals manager within the LazyTown Approvals Department.
The Mediabox-PA system enables Licensees to submit all their product design artwork files to the Licensor or Agent through a centralized online system. Mediabox-PA also enables Licensors and Agents to review the submitted artwork online, link their comments with each artwork file, and manage the workflow order of projects and submissions between their Licensees and their own staff. Licensees also use the application to log in and review comments and submit new, revised product designs though a 100% paperless workflow. All traffic, milestones, and activity are tracked and reported in real-time enabling Licensors to measure various performance metrics.
