Paperless production order system
Vcreative Radio: This is a Web-based paperless production order system designed to help expedite the production process and streamline communication between a station's sales, traffic and production departments. Account executives submit production orders or schedule traffic changes from any Internet-ready computer or Internet-capable mobile phone. Traffic and production departments receive all requests simultaneously so orders do not bottleneck and all work and communication is time stamped for accountability. All scripts and final spots are saved in the system so account executives can track all ads in progress, listen to and approve ads, track what's on-air and expiring soon as well as search archives of all past ads. For the production department, features like a customizable Hot List and sortable views keep hundreds of requests in a logical, neat order. Vcreative Radio can also pool together corporate voice talents.

The system's new interface-driven CSS style sheet builder gives users flexible display options to customize the appearance of embedded media. Multiple stacks of embedded media can be positioned on either the right or the left side, for instance, and each block can be formatted using the same style sheet or a different one.
