Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) July 31, 2012
Matrix Solutions, a provider of CRM and Sales Management Software, announced that they have published a white paper entitled "An Industry Challenge: Managing Advertising Sales." The paper identifies the challenges of utilizing technology as an effective means to manage media sales operations, given the relationship component of selling as well as the uniqueness in advertising specifically (enterprise wide and multiple platforms deep).
"An Industry Challenge: Managing Advertising Sales" identifies customer relationship management (CRM) as an implemented best practice. It also articulates the inherent benefits of using a Sales Management Software System, a CRM System, and the results when the two systems are combined. It also drills down into each of the benefits and details how they can impact the sales operations specifically and the company holistically. The bus does not stop there, as the paper proceeds to outline the necessity for integrating CRM and Sales Management Systems within the entire operational workflow; so that as a business you are capitalizing on productivity and efficiency across the entire enterprise.
The author, DJ Cavanaugh, CEO and Partner of Matrix Solutions commented, “There are so many misconceptions in our industry about the value of effective selling by utilizing technology and I get that, as it is often a result of not having all the information or investing in the systems for the enterprise as a whole. There are many silos in broadcast operations and implementing a CRM and Sales Management Software System is one of the systems that is helping to break down the barriers between silos with seamless integration.”
