In the session, Debra Hedgecock, VP Global Agency Relations at Mastercard, shared how Prodigy was implemented during the pandemic to help centralize and automate decades-old legacy production business functions without a disruptive change management process with brand and agency stakeholders. Valerie Light, former Broadcast Production Manager at Verizon and current Prodigy Advisory Board member lent her insights on why Prodigy's SaamS (Software as a Managed Service Model) model of eliminating client-side data entry using AI technology represents such a revolutionary innovation for the industry.
Brendan O'Malley, Senior Manager Broadcast Production at Verizon and Co-Chair of the ANA Production Management Committee and Emily Fleischer, Broadcast Production Manager at Verizon also shared their Prodigy implementation and usage story with attendees as part of the group discussion. Verizon was an instrumental early adopter of Prodigy and provided critical brand-side input into the design and functionality of the product.
"Beyond the mechanics of collecting production data efficiently, aggregating it within a visually appealing dashboard and improving process through AI technology - the true value of Prodigy for marketers is the role it plays in data storytelling," said John Lipuma, CEO of Prodigy by PostAds Group. "Organizations only get better at doing things when the data revealed about their activity is so compelling that it needs to be acted on. Creating narratives from the data to inspire positive action among colleagues and creating sustainable enterprise-wide belief in the game plan for improvement and efficiency is what Prodigy is all about."
