MIAMI — Talent Testing Service has launched live beta testing of TTS HealthWatch (TTShw), a new database compiled by producers, agents and talents themselves indicating who performed with whom.
Sixto Pacheco, who leads TTS as president and CEO, told XBIZ that several production companies, including Immoral Productions and Venetian Productions, have already signed on to TTSHw in its beta phase.
Pacheco hopes more companies will hear about TTSHw and come aboard with the program, which spent six months in development before the beta launch today. Pacheco declined to disclose costs of TTSHw's development.
By entering this information in the database, a generational testing tree can be produced within seconds thus permitting a rapid response during an industry moratorium when callbacks are initiated, Pacheco said.
TTShw was built to have a system of checks and balances referred to as a triple-tier-check system by TTS, he said.
Production information received from producers, agents and talents will permit the generational tree created to be more robust avoiding any splintering in the identification and testing of possible infected cases.
“2013 was the year of moratoriums for the adult industry,” Pacheco said. “We believe that the industry as a whole can manage these shutdowns swiftly and efficiently with the use of the TTShw program. At this time we have begun beta testing at select production companies obtaining initial feedback in order to enhance its features before implementing it at a national level.”
Pacheco said once this initial testing is completed and feedback has been obtained and implemented, the process will then move on to agents and talents.
Obtaining feedback from these three stakeholders during this process is as important as the system itself, he said.
Pacheco expects that by the end of the first quarter of 2014, the system will be up and operational at a national level.
Additional production companies that would also like to participate in the beta testing phase should contact TTS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
