Arts & Entertainment

DreamWorks Animation is known for pushing technology boundaries to tell a great story. But, until recently, the same couldn't be said for its administrative office. Manual administrative processes – specifically its contract management process in DreamWorks’ Consumer Products division – impacted employee productivity, consumed resources and caused delays, affecting its production arm.

To change all that, DreamWorks enlisted Hyland Software and HP, an Authorized OnBase provider, to streamline its contract management process with a smart and strategic enterprise content management (ECM) solution.

The new OnBase solution for DreamWorks captures electronic and paper-based documents, integrates them into front- or back-end business applications, then automates workflows and enables instant access to data stored in a centrally managed repository.

“Everything is [now in] one place,” says Sarah Kaleel, information technology project manager. “Anyone can pull it at any time and it won’t conflict with other people looking for the same information. And it’s much more granular and secure."

By implementing OnBase, arts and entertainment companies:

  • Scale their solution across corporate and branch locations while managing information in a central repository
  • Promote faster inter-departmental processing, allowing staff to make better, more informed decisions
  • Provide users with mobile access to information on their phones and tablets, allowing them to work on projects no matter the time or their location

OnBase enables distributors to meet the needs of each department – including Accounting and Finance, Human Resources and Legal – with one easily supported application, letting them start with a single department or solution and expand as time, goals and budget permit.
