Firms join to create distrib’n software

Two companies specializing in asset management computer software, Applied Information Management and SystemLogic, have formed a strategic alliance to develop and market a system to facilitate film and TV companies’ management of sales, licensing and distribution deals.

The companies plan to market the product, dubbed CS/Harpoon, at NATPE. According to AIM president and founder David Isacowitz, the company will be displaying a more user-friendly interface. The Harpoon system, he said, has been evolving for more than 14 years. Companies already using an earlier version of the software include CBS, Orion, MTV and Fox.

“The new interface is totally graphic, and completely designed for Windows users,” explained Isacowitz. That means more companies, even small production houses that may not have powerful networked computer systems, can utilize the product. CS/Harpoon, he said, is designed especially for entertainment industry deal management.

Orion information systems VP Christine MacKinnon said her company has been using an older version of the Har-poon software, and plans to upgrade to the newer release. Orion used to enter sales and financial data in two sepa-rate systems. “We wanted to combine that into a single database to eliminate duplicate entries,” she said.
