PeriGrow’s Assurance Team Enables Risk Management for one of the largest television content producers in India

Largest television content producers (100 + Manpower; B2B – Organized Sector) witnessed increased overheads for on-set shoot expenses. PeriGrow was brought on board to assess the situation and track reasonableness and genuineness of the payment to reduce the cost of production.

Why PeriGrow: PeriGrow’s national presence aided in strict shoot verification across all client locations pan India.

Service Offered: Risk management; Genuineness of on-set expenditures; Reporting excellence

Actionable Strategy: PeriGrow’s Assurance team conducted a detailed analysis of all expenses incurred for the shoot and verified all the expenses every day at each location where the shoot was being held. A pre-payment verification exercise proved successful.

Sustainable Results: PeriGrow helped the company reduce their production costs by a staggering 15%.

The television content production business in India has grown so fast, causing inflationary costs in order to expand. Daily payments are a huge drain due to long shoots, various locations and elaborate sets. A production accountant at a studio says, “Massive expansion of Indian broadcasters has burned huge amounts of cash”. For almost all the content producers, a streamlined daily payment process needs to be implemented especially those content producers who are running with fixed budgets and against time.

That all teams in the production house should work together across formats sounds nothing more than common sense. But that isn’t how the television content production business has evolved. Like all other sectors, production houses too operate in silos and departments. Moreover, most production houses try to retain one voice and one tone.
