Video: Why Foundry, a Provider of Academy Award winning Visual Effects Software, Switched from In-house Licensing to 10Duke

Foundry and 10Duke logos

10Duke is excited to publish a testimonial from Foundry, a global leader in visual effects software, who rely on 10Duke’s software licensing technology for continuous growth.

Foundry provides pioneering visual effects software for the creative industries, including major film studios and post-production houses such as ILM, DNEG, Pitch Black, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Wētā FX, Pixar, Marvel, Netflix, Framestore and Technicolor Creative Studios.

Before partnering with 10Duke, Foundry had built their own licensing system, but as the company grew, this in-house system wasn’t scaling or delivering in line with customer expectations and required turnaround times, which led Foundry to seek out a software licensing partner to deal with those issues to enable continuous growth.

Patrick Hamilton, the Senior Director of Corporate Technology at Foundry:

“The feature of 10Duke that attracted us the most was a single system that did authentication and login-based licensing – with the other systems we’ve looked at you’d have to buy two different services to get the same kind of deal. Now that we’re using the 10Duke solution, we don’t have to worry about reliability anymore. We can also leverage their existing APIs we don’t have to think about building something, we can just use it.

With 10Duke, you’re going to gain access to a mature and reliable system and also a fantastic team at 10Duke who really are an extension of your own team and they’re going to help you deliver your vision.”
