Post production house Goldcrest says a new software system from Exchequer will help prevent its films from going over budget.
Goldcrest, which has been involved in films such as Moulin Rouge, Bridget Jones’s Diary and Saving Private Ryan, said the new IT system will allow it to keep a closer eye on its use of post production facilities and boost the potential profits generated for studios and operators.
Mike Hammond, financial controller of Goldcrest, said: ‘We are now able to produce our monthly management accounts by the end of the third working day of the new month, using the OLE technology built into the software.
‘Our finance team has enjoyed working with the system; it has made their jobs far more rewarding as they have more time to concentrate on value adding tasks.’
