|Company Name||thePlatform (view profile)|
thePlatform helps content providers, broadband media sites, and mobile businesses solve their unique media publishing requirements. Our proven media management and publishing technology services scale with our customers’ operations and support their business model with an open, versatile approach to providing an ideal technical solution for their needs. Customers include CNBC, Comcast, A&E, SyFy, Fox Sports Network, NBC Local Media, PBS, Rogers, Time Warner Cable, Liberty Global and numerous others.
Our digital media management and publishing services manage millions of media files and process millions of hits per day. We've helped our customers integrate dozens of existing technologies and applications with thePlatform's ASP. Solutions built with thePlatform's services have become high-profile destinations for our customers.
Customer Solutions Managers are responsible for a wide variety of tasks, and must be skilled in every aspect of a project in which they are involved. One day, a CSM may be meeting with a customer (in person or remotely) to gather requirements for their workflow, while providing suggestions on how to best optimize the workflow with our services. The next, the CSM may be prototyping the solution that the customer desires. If custom components are needed for the solution, the CSM will also document the new component and assist with its development. Once the solution has been prototyped, the CSM will help implement it and support it as needed, all the while making sure the customer's needs are met.
At thePlatform, no customer of ours is the same. Each has their own, unique workflow that needs to be built using some (if not all) of our services. Some customers may even require some custom software development to ensure that their workflow meets their requirements. CSMs also act as consultants and product experts. Not only must our CSMs understand our products that will be used to change the customer workflow, but they must also understand the customer's existing workflow and how it may be impacted.
