The Key Monthly Payment Process

When it comes to video content costs, no one wants to pay a dime more than is necessary. The Key monthly payment process insures that you are not dependent on vendor invoices that may not be accurate or may not arrive at all. Your payments for video content will be based on your contractual terms.

We build a contract database for all of your contracts with local television stations and national networks. Using the billing system data you provide, we will report subscribers to the NCTC and will provide your accounts payable team with pre-calculated payment vouchers for all programmers and broadcasters paid directly. All content owners receive monthly electronic remittance advice via email minimizing questions to your team. Leverage Accounting Services will field basic questions that programmers and NCTC may have about monthly payments so that you can focus on those things that only you can do!

If you’re looking for an accounting partner with keen industry insights and big telecom expertise without

a big telecom price tag, you need to talk with Linda Kondrick at Leverage Accounting Services.

Feedback from our clients:

“Leverage has its own fan club inside the company at all levels and departments.”

– Robert Haulbrook, Former CEO, GTA Teleguam

“The folks at Leverage have a wealth of experience of understanding the nuances of programming contracts, especially NCTC Agreements. They are able to help members navigate the complicated terms of programming agreements as well.”

– Frank Hughes, NCTC

“The complexity and intensity of video content negotiation has become a battlefield of sorts in recent years. There is a great amount at stake on both sides of the table. And ‘leverage’ is the perfect word to describe the environment. In getting to know and work with Cheryl, I’m confident that all medium to small cable companies and video providers should work with her. She knows how to negotiate contracts and ensure that her customers are getting the best deals possible. I’m not sure why a smaller company or emerging company without fully dedicated resources wouldn’t want to have that assurance. Her company, Leverage, is uniquely positioned in their segment.”

– Dave Beasley, Telecommunications Consultant

“The longer we have our relationship with Leverage, the more valuable the relationship has proven to become. We are now at year 8+ of our time working with Leverage and they are unquestionably one of our most valuable strategic partnerships.”

– Jane Marie Woodruff, Director of Marketing, Ritter Communications
“The Leverage Broadband Strategies team is conscientious, proactive, and knowledgeable. They are our strategic partners and consultants—and by outsourcing specific functions to them, our team has time to focus on mission-critical objectives.”
– James Campbell, CFO of Inter Mountain Cable and Gearheart Broadband
