ALPHA MEDIA and MR. MASTER have reached an agreement to utilize MR. MASTER's AIM SOFTWARE for ALPHA MEDIA NETWORK's 249 stations in 52 markets.
"AIM" or "AUTOMATION IMPORT MANAGER" allows stations to automatically process their audio, place it into automation systems and post the exact time of airing back to the content provider allowing for a complete autonomous end to end solution.
“In less than two years, we have exceeded expectations as we approach 900 AIM users," MR. MASTER Pres. STU JACOBS said. "We have a great team and a great product that radio has embraced as the perfect solution for the needs of traffic, production and programming. ALPHA MEDIA has always been forward thinking and saw the benefits of AIM early in our development. The confidence they have in AIM to be part of their day to day workflow has produced a successful partnership between us.”
With AIM, MR. MASTER includes an enhanced station-specific delivery of all content via MEDIASHOOTERPRO2.0. Other key features of AIM include built in FTP downloader, posting of second accurate affidavits, custom reports for billing, intra-company hubbing between markets, and the ability to process make-goods.
“MR. MASTER's AIM software has improved our barter and network work flow tremendously," ALPHA MEDIA Corporate Dir./Traffic Operations PAUL BLANDING said. "It saves us time. It saves us money. AIM leads the way in handling the heavy load for traffic and production.”
