Why it’s important to use a comprehensive inventory solution to move advertising business forward

Pricing structures in the advertising business are very complex, even more so if you manage cross-media inventory and operate in multiple countries with different currencies. An adequate solution for ad specific pricing requirements did not exist until now: the ADvendio solution offers a huge inventory and price management system that is capable of covering even the complex requirements of huge international publishing houses managing all kinds of advertising. The first step in guaranteeing a more efficient sales process is to ensure that your sales team finds the right ad specs with the current pricing. Unused inventory is lost profit.

Do you want your sales team to be selling less of your ad inventory because they aren’t familiar with all the media items or current packages? If you have a motivated product management team that puts a lot of thought into how to make your inventory more attractive for your customers and creates engaging ad packages, it’s frustrating when these are not even proposed by the sales team due to the lack of transparency in your media portfolio. It’s also often difficult for product managers to see which product has been sold the most, is performing the best, or works really well in combination with another. How are you supposed to make decisions concerning price development if you are missing important insights on performance?

Collecting CRM, sales, invoice, and inventory information within one single system offers great new ways to analyze the value of inventory using readily set-up reports. A lot of time can be saved by organizing your ad inventory in a user-friendly way. Sales reps are usually focused on generating as much ad revenue as possible – so let’s work on providing them with all the inventory tools they need to reach that goal. At ADvendio we solve these issues with the media search, automatically assigned rate cards, pre-packaged products, and other useful ad inventory management features.
