MaccsBox is an electronic data exchange system that fully automates the process of collecting, reporting and invoicing Box Office Returns between distributors and exhibitors.
MaccsBox streamlines the process of data collection by ingesting automated feeds with Flash Grosses, Box Office Returns and Holdovers directly from exhibitor’s Ticketing and Theatre Management Systems. A matching system analyses and links all incoming data to their original bookings and redistributes a feed to the distributors with only the figures and reports that they are entitled to. Furthermore the matching system checks for inconsistencies between the figures from the exhibitor and the booking information from the distributor. If any discrepancy is found, MaccsBox can either automatically report these back to the parties involved or create an e-booking to correct the problem.
For exhibitors who don’t have an electronic data feed from a ticketing system, MaccsBox provides an easy to use web interface where Box Office Returns, Flash Grosses and Holdovers can be entered manually. Because the data can be entered directly on the bookings as provided by the distributors, the manual interface also provides a substantial efficiency gain compared to the situation where all data needs to be delivered manually to each individual distributor.
MaccsBox has an extensive reporting module that allows distributors and exhibitors to have real time insight across their data. Alongside standard reports such as real time Release lists and top grossing title listings are fully customisable historical reports covering all areas related to the market such as size and share. The security of your data is critically important to us therefore distributors & exhibitors will only ever have access to the data for which they are entitled.
Finally MaccsBox fully automates the invoicing process by collecting electronic invoices from all distributors and redistributing them to the exhibitors. For exhibitors that cannot process electronic invoices, the invoices can also be securely accessed and printed from the web interface thus making a paper invoicing process obsolete.
By providing a single web based platform that integrates the whole value chain of the film distribution market, MaccsBox provides an enormous efficiency gain for both distributors and exhibitors compared to the situation each distributor and each exhibitor has to maintain a one-on-one relation for data collection, reporting and invoicing box office returns.
Altogether, MaccsBox reduces the amount of manual labour for data entry at both the distributor and the exhibitor, while minimising error potential in reporting and invoicing and reducing the number of lines of communication that have to be maintained.
