Customer Focus: The NRB Network
The NRB Network launched in 2005 with an internally developed traffic solution that was found to be inadequate for their scheduling, sales, and traffic needs. They were unable to support key integrations that would facilitate cross-departmental workflows and media management tasks across disparate systems. They needed a system that did more than just “traffic and billing.” ProTrack was the solution.

With each department acting as an individual silo, they needed a solution that could provide an automated and centralized work flow, in order to monetize their program schedules.
