A complete facilities scheduling solution for the BBC

This web application is a complete scheduling solution for the BBC’s in-house training department, The BBC Academy, which delivers training courses to thousands of staff members.

Using a sophisticated algorithm, it does the hard work of juggling all the key elements that go into a course – from finding rooms and equipment to checking the availability of students and identifying suitably qualified teachers.

Watson has saved thousands of hours and become an invaluable tool for organisers of BBC Academy courses.

“Watson took the complexity and made it simple. It delivered millions of savings by making resourcing more efficient” – Mark Steinmeyer, Product Owner, BBC
