    Business Need

    AAM needed to update Courier, their breakthrough SaaS platform for automated electronic delivery of digital content to cinemas.

    When PGS Software analysed the situation, they decided what AAM really needed was a brand new architecture – one that would require a complete rewrite of the communication protocol.

    We believe that fully automated electronic delivery through the Cloud will ultimately replace all current managed electronic and physical content delivery services. Our innovative distribution platform – Courier – is at the heart of that strategy and we wanted to take it to the next level of performance and scalability. Having worked with PGS Software before, we knew that they understood the complex technical environment of modern cinema exhibition and would be able to deliver what we required.
