Yle, Finland’s public sector broadcaster, selected CEITON in 2015 and after completion of an ambitious project schedule, the system was in operation within 12 months. Initially 5 workflows were developed and these have been incrementally improved and modified over time. Yle now runs their entire process, from an idea to budgeting, to resource scheduling, then on to the final produced content, including time and cost allocation, using workflows in CEITON. In addition, there are deep integrations to their financial, payroll, and broadcast systems.
The tasks required for the fulfilment of the workflows are assigned by 600 schedulers within the CEITON system to 13,000 human and technical resources. Human resources, consisting of over 3,500 employees, use both the Time Tracking Module (TTM) and the Info Module to inform themselves about their schedules/shifts, enter their actuals, request time off, etc.
One workflow which was initially developed in the main system was later migrated to the time-tracking module. This allows users with the relevant permissions to pitch an idea for a project through the time-tracking module. The time tracking module is available for users in Finland’s official languages Finnish and Swedish and the workflows are entirely available in Finnish.
