The world’s largest Christian television network, Trinity Broadcast Network, standardizes Financials and Subscription Billing on One Platform

Go-Live Date: March 2022

Customer Overview

The Trinity Broadcasting Network is an international Christian-based broadcast television network and the world’s largest religious television network. TBN has offices on the west coast and Texas and studios throughout the US. Launched in 1973, TBN has grown into a family of over thirty twenty-four-hour global networks reaching every inhabited continent with entertaining, inspirational, and life-changing programming for every family member and demographic.

TBN owns and operates six broadcast networks, each reaching particular demographics; in addition to the main TBN network, TBN owns other channels and religious networks outside of the US.

TBN had to evolve their business model and adapt to market changes to stay competitive in the media industry. Along with adding new types of content and programming, they also needed to reach new audiences across a broader demographic.

Incorporating a new business model would also entail improving their processes and back-office operations. Their Financials would need to support recurring billing and subscription management. TBN realized they needed a technology platform that would allow them to quickly respond to new and evolving business requirements without long deployment timelines – and so, they transitioned from JD Edwards to Oracle Cloud.

Challenges and Objectives:

  • Need for a robust Cloud ERP system to replace legacy JDE ERP application
  • Scalable billing solution that allowed flexible recurring billing options for frequent subscription change
  • Enhanced user experience over the existing system
  • A subscription billing system that enables TBN to set up new agreements rapidly
  • Unique requirements around transaction dates and revenue recognition
  • The solution needs to allow for monthly, quarterly, or annual subscriptions
