Website

Established in 1998, Urban Brew Studios is a world class facility with award winning productions. With 9 studios with control rooms, a full video & audio post-production department. Urban brew Studio’s production department has done productions with a wide variety of genres. Eg, music shows, children shows, game shows and telenovelas. The company has two Gospel channels that are on the Multichoice bouquet and has hosted productions like The Voices SA, IDOLS SA and Family Feud SA.

THE CHALLENGE

Before we started using farmerswife we did our bookings on excel spread sheets and had these huge whiteboards in our offices.

We encountered that we needed to see our crew and studio utilization, in order to make business decisions. We also never did internal invoices for services rendered between different departments within Urban Brew.

THE SOLUTION

We have been using farmerswife since 2016 and it has definitely added value to the business within terms of availability.

We make use of farmerswife for bookings of studios, control rooms, equipment, crew, audio & video post-production, and for utilization reports on all services, budget vs actual reports on productions and facilities.

farmerswife enables clear visibility on availability, scheduling and utilization across the various studios and other resources allowing for more informed decisions to be made more efficiently.

As each production house runs different workflows, the flexibility of farmerswife really assists and adapts to our business requirement

THE SUPPORT

farmerswife team is a Rockstar team! The turnaround time on queries is very quick even with the different time zones.
