farmerswife to showcase Cirkus at London’s Media Production & Technology Show

farmerswife announces new features and expanded connectivity to their new task management and collaboration platform - Cirkus. The latest versions provide an end-to-end solution for task collaboration, project management, financial management and reporting

Palma, Spain & Los Angeles, USA – 28th April 2022: farmerswife, which provides resource scheduling, project management, and team collaboration software for the demanding needs of today’s media industry, will be showcasing the power and flexibility of Cirkus, its new SaaS task and project management solution, on Stand #L110 at next month’s Media Production & Technology Show (MPTS – London Olympia, 11-12 May).

Designed from the ground up to address the specific project needs of media organisations, the cloud-based Cirkus is an easy-to-use, day to day task collaboration tool for teams. It allows users to schedule, assign and manage projects and tasks; track status and report time; and collaborate efficiently with anyone, anywhere, including freelancers, by coordinating resources and sharing files in one central hub. It also features the ability to create custom templates, thereby improving efficiency and optimising throughput to create leaner, more agile workflows.

Also, on show at MPTS will be the latest v6.8 of the farmerswife scheduling, management, and reporting tool. farmerswife allows organisations to schedule their people, rooms, equipment, and more, while planning projects and viewing resource availability to ensure that project deliverables stay on track.

Leading media professionals around the world use farmerswife every day in post-production, production, broadcasting, equipment rental, agencies, and education, and v6.8 adds a host of new capabilities including:

  • Minute increments for bookings in the hourline
  • More colour coding options for app users and web users
  • A new Container tab to easily create and manage project containers
  • Additions to the REST API to integrate with other systems
  • Support for new integrated workflows using Cirkus for task management and collaboration.

Both tools are available as powerful standalone products but deliver synergistic benefits when used together. farmerswife provides the ‘heavy lifting’ of inhouse schedule and resource management alongside financial reporting, while Cirkus acts as the collaboration platform to share detailed information with distributed teams both internally and externally. Together they form a true end-to-end solution for all media project management tasks.

“Cirkus was developed after over twenty years of experience working with the world’s leading media companies at the cutting edge of project management and planning,” comments farmerswife CEO, Stephen Elliott. “It reflects the way that the modern industry works, with internal teams needing to share precise and timely data with complex webs of freelancers and consultants. Together with the new version of farmerswife we now offer a genuinely end-to-end project management solution, giving media companies complete visibility into their internal and external workflows, and we are looking forward to showing MPTS visitors exactly the benefits that can bring them.”
