International Success and Growth
with an Omnis Web Application for Agencies
Many agencies are facing the following scenario: The finance department is using a financial package, different account teams have different ways of storing and filing information and the studio another system all together. Some small to midsized agencies have a hotch-potch of homegrown paper based and software systems in use in their business. The problem with most of these systems is that they don’t “talk” to each other and agencies face problems of having to manually enter and re-enter information across these multiple systems. The ramifications of this include lost productivity in hours spent re-entering data manually and attempting to consolidate data from the disparate systems; high error rates, and lack of visibility of the information necessary to make decisions. Alternatively, a single integrated system would provide significant advantages to the agency, accommodating the breadth of the company’s business processes, while providing the flexibility even for small agencies to tailor the system to meet their specific business needs.
PROAD provides the tools to take advertisement, communication, consulting and IT agencies to new levels of profitability and efficiency with a comprehensive suite of transactional functions covering all departments and the wider organisation, including:
• Management and tracking of jobs from conception to delivery
• Creation of a single platform for management, creative resources and finance
• Analysis of profit and loss by job, by employee, by department, by customer, or by whatever is important to the business
• Integration of existing financial packages
All of the individual departments within an organisation will benefit from more efficient job management. Production departments can use the ‘master data’ to produce fast and profitable estimates and reduce time spent managing third party suppliers. Account management can review the status of individual jobs, deadlines and allocated resources. Estimates, proposals and related documents are all stored together enhancing the ability of the organisation to retrieve and archive customer information. PROAD also integrates with most popular office productivity software, such as Word and Email, which means that existing templates and documents can be used. The resources of the studio are streamlined by using electronic time sheets that automatically update against job budget and can be tailored to reflect the cost of each individual employee.
Another important strength of PROAD is its user-friendly, intuitive UI which can be individually customised. This means that there is no need for lengthy training sessions, and working with PROAD is more enjoyable.
