We created the Points System as a way to accurately measure the value of the work provided and the cost that you pay. Production costs are a function of time. We don't charge studio time for our imaging work as it can vary widely...which could cause a budget problem for many stations. Instead, we have, after many years of experience, created a system that measure the average amount of time that it takes to produce anything from a simple sweeper to a full promo and everything in between. The result: The DSV Points System.
How it works is quite simple. Imagine that you have a wallet. In that wallet, you have 40 dollars. You go to the restaurant and look at the menu. On the menu are items such as a burger (5 dollars), a soda (2 dollars) and fries (1 dollar). You order a burger, fries and a drink. Your total bill is 8 dollars. You take 8 dollars from your wallet to pay your bill and you are left with 32 dollars until your next pay day.
So the DSV Points equivalent of that scenario is this: You have a production package that gives you 40 points a month. You order a mini promo (5 points), a sweeper (2 points) and a sweeper revision (1 point). Your total job is 8 points. You take 8 points away from your monthly allotment of 40 points and you are left with 32 points for the rest of the month.
Pretty simple, right?
