The post-production software company chose BT to manage its complex procurement processes in Europe
The leading provider of post-production software to the film, video and broadcast industry wanted a third-party to take responsibility for hardware with a managed procurement service.
BT ensures high value shipments are delivered exactly as specified by Avid. So stringent are the specification requirements that each new machine is taken out of its box and re-tested by BT.
Avid is able to focus on its core business while BT takes care of procurement, retaining responsibility over the inventory from order to shipment.
BT offer us so much, with buffer stock and pre-testing the hardware, that we’re sticking with them. The relationship with BT enables us to recognise revenue sooner. It allows us to sit on stock without the inventory responsibility. This has made us much more responsive to customer needs.
