Cast & Crew Announces Suite of “Plus” Digital Accounting Products
October 16, 2018
Solutions include update to flagship PSL production accounting software, launch of PO+ digital purchase order and PCard+ expense-management system
BURBANK, CA – Cast & Crew today announced the rollout of its digital accounting product suite, including an upgrade to PSL, its flagship production accounting software solution, which now will be known as PSL+. The suite includes two other products: PO+, which provides digital purchase orders, and PCard+, a business debit card and expense-management solution.
Cast & Crew provides payroll and human resources, accounting and financial, and workflow and productivity software and services to the entertainment industry.
PSL+, the next evolution of production accounting software, features the same reliability, security and worldwide access found in the current version, but now includes an updated interface, easy-to-read custom reports and enhanced security with multi-factor authentication. PO+ purchase orders are seamlessly integrated with PSL+, providing real-time visibility into costs. Customized approval workflows can be tailored to individual specifications and POs can be approved directly from a user’s email.
PCard+, designed specifically for productions, enables customers to easily manage funds on-the-go, monitor all balances and transactions in real-time and ability to set up mobile alerts and auto reloads to guarantee funds are always available to crew. PCard+ can be set up to feed seamlessly into PSL+ or be used on its own.
“We’re very excited about PSL+ and the new features and functionality we’ve added,” said John Berkley, Cast & Crew’s President. “We developed PO+ and PCard+ in direct response to our customers’ needs and we integrated them directly into PSL+ to provide familiarity and ease of use.”
PCard+ is powered by Bento for Business, which provides a modern financial operating platform for small and midsize businesses and their partners across commercial payments, treasury management and banking services.
