Creators of powered music scheduling
RCS is the world’s largest broadcast software company with products in more than 14,500 radio stations, TV music channels, cable companies, satellite music networks and internet stations worldwide.
With more than 800 professionals working from 23 offices around the globe, RCS is everywhere.
In the UAE, RCS has a number of blue-chip clients. The Dubai-based office managed by Baher AL Zaher, Managing Director, RCS MENA has the biggest client base in the MENA region and particularly in the GCC (UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait), Egypt, Lebanon and Jordan.
RCS invented music scheduling on computers opening its doors in 1979 with the very first version of the legendary Selector.
This revolutionary product was designed for music radio stations who wanted more control over their song rotations while maintaining consistency and enhancing variety.
Within the first year, Selector had its first station – an NBC-owned FM station in San Francisco.
In the last decade, RCS has reinvented the way broadcasters approach their craft with the introduction of new and updated software services.
A hallmark of RCS from the beginning was the strategy to base product improvements on feedback from its loyal customers and experienced power users.
This tradition continues with its next generation of award-winning broadcast software.
The most respected names in the broadcast industry choose RCS as their software partner – Z100, KISS-FM and many of the largest and most successful radio groups around the world.
New Generation of Browser-based Software
Now there is a new generation of browser-based extensions to RCS software designed for mobile devices such as laptops, smartphones and tablets.
Alongside GSelector, Zetta and Aquira, customers now have access to the incredible ‘from-anywhere’ flexibility of Selector2GO, Zetta2GO and Aquira2GO.
With mobile initiatives, RCS is putting the power of its cutting-edge software into the hands of every user, no matter where they may be.
And for customers who want cloud-based solutions, RCS is already there.
RCS provides the most advanced, reliable, intuitive and flexible broadcast tools on the planet. Because its clients are based worldwide, the tools are multilingual too.
And customers are backed by the legendary RCS 24/7 world-class support. The company boasts more local support offices than any other broadcast software company in the world – 23 of which are wholly owned RCS offices around the world.
The Dubai office has a permanent support team which can be physically augmented overnight if necessary from any of its offices (including say France or India), geographical area notwithstanding.
“RCS prides itself on great service.
With our base here in the Emirates, we have been closer to our esteemed customers in the region,” says Al Zaher.
RCS business has been excellent in the region and its permanent local base in Dubai which also serves the MENA has an array of new products currently being implemented in the UAE and the region.
At CABSAT 2019, “RCS MENA showcases what its team unofficially refers to as the ‘21st century product suite’ – Zetta automation, GSelector scheduling, Aquira commercial traffic and RCS News.
We are honoured to be working with some of the smartest, most advanced radio companies on the planet,” adds Al Zaher, “and truly proud to continue to be a part of their success story and to bring new products into the region.
We emphasise the 21st-century nature of our four cornerstone products because we are the only broadcast software company where every single offering has been produced from scratch this century and not the last century.”
