ODMedia Group Becomes One of the First Companies to Join the New Strategic Supply Chain Partnership Program
Utrecht, May 7, 2020 – ODMedia Group, one of the market leaders in media processing and aggregation for on-demand media, today announced that it has been named a Strategic Supply Chain Partner by Whip Media Group. Through this program, the partnership will provide media companies better transparency into their content workflows to maximize revenues, reduce costs, increase efficiencies, and get complete visibility and control over where and how television and movie titles are being distributed, both on a global scale and in real-time.
ODMedia Group will integrate with Whip Media Group’s industry-leading Content Value Management (CVM) platform. The CVM cloud-based open API-driven architecture will enable media companies and MVPD operators to seamlessly add best-in-class content delivery vendors to establish a digitally-driven supply chain that removes distribution friction and simplifies the process of managing multiple vendors while delivering workflow transparency and monitoring.
