More recently, after exploring various innovative and business management systems that could meet their specific and complex growing requirements, they chose NEXT-TT as the most reliable and extensive system on the market.

It gives us the peace of mind that all our content is handled and subtitled securely and confidentially without ever leaving our in-house server. The NEXT-TT system was professionally supplied and installed by PBT EU and is developed by Profuz Digital – they are also the developers of SubtitleNEXT which is, in our opinion, the best subtitling software available on the market right now and great value for money.”
The advantages NEXT-TT commands are unparalleled to other localisation platforms by providing full automation, template proficiency, artificial intelligence in combination with SubtitleNEXT’s user-friendly, innovative, customisable, intuitive, and affordable timed-text software platform. In addition to its remote work capabilities, the NEXT-TT solution supports unlimited users and provides configurable workflows, including the ability to import BPMN workflows.

Monica points out a few of the many advantages the team at IT Pros are already benefitting from by using NEXT-TT, “Over the past few months, selected projects have been handled within this protected environment where clients can upload and download their files, freelancers can log into the platform and securely transcribe, translate, subtitle from their home office using SubtitleNEXT’s powerful features without downloading or moving files from our server. Our QC team can finalise projects as and when they are ready in a fast-paced, but rewarding, subtitling supply chain.
