Tel Aviv, February 24th, 2020 — OOONA, the world’s leading provider of professional management and production tools for the localization industry, has partnered with Captionmax, one of North America’s leading media accessibility companies to develop a customized OOONA module that will help facilitate all of Captionmax’s workflows.

The two companies began collaborating in the summer of 2019 to develop a project management solution that could accommodate Captionmax’s numerous services, including prerecorded and live closed captioning, audio description, and transcription – in addition to its ever-expanding localization offerings such as translation, subtitling, and dubbing. A priority was developing specialized functionality for Captionmax’s Realtime department, which operates 24 hours a day, 365 days per year.

“We have worked closely with the professional team at Captionmax to build a module for realtime captioning in OOONA Manager. A module that meets Captionmax’s high operational and security demands but very flexible” said Wayne Garb, CEO of OOONA. “We are excited with the outcome and have heard great feedback from the Captionmax team.

For Captionmax, the OOONA implementation will streamline the project intake, resource scheduling, and file delivery processes, while also automating tasks that had previously required manual execution. Most importantly, the OOONA platform will help advance Captionmax’s reputation as one of the most trusted names in media accessibility.

“After rigorously evaluating various project management software systems we decided to go with OOONA because of their high quality of functionality, support, industry expertise and continuous development improvements”, said Tony Cleveland, Captionmax’s Chief Technology Officer. “We have been very pleased with our ongoing partnership with OOONA.”
