BURBANK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Led by veterans Sukhi Pabla, Charlie Steiner and Stephen Chow, the Los Angeles based payroll and production finance services provider Revolution Entertainment Services (“Revolution”) has acquired the global production management technology leader SetKeeper, in a multimillion dollar deal.
The collaborative effort will allow Revolution to develop and release new production technologies designed to streamline how films, television shows, commercials and events are produced around the globe.
“We did not start Revolution to be just another payroll company offering payroll and finance software”, says Sukhi Pabla, President and Co-Founder of Revolution. “The plan was always to create efficiencies across the entire production, from script to payroll”.
SetKeeper’s founders Octave Bory, Alex Péron and Hugo Cordier share their perspective on the acquisition and how production will evolve in the next coming years:
“The world of filmmaking and entertainment is being disrupted in the best possible way. New technologies have emerged that will assist creatives, crew and cast in their day-to-day work and transform the way stories are conceived, created, and distributed. Together with Revolution, our technologies will become more accessible to a larger number of production crew and continue to serve storytellers around the world.”
New technologies for physical production, production accounting and production finance teams
With Revolution’s employee onboarding, payroll, production calendaring, production accounting apps and SetKeeper’s script import and secure document distribution features, it is a match made in heaven.
By leveraging SetKeeper’s technologies, Revolution will build new interfaces to become a one-stop-shop for physical production and production finance teams. This is just one of the hundreds of ways Revolution is truly doing more than just being another payroll company.
