The new model
for media sales


Media sellers are challenged to maintain and grow revenue streams. As content consumption across web, social and mobile increases, traditional media is diminishing and digital ad revenues are being snapped up by new online challenger brands. This digital explosion has led to advertisers demanding cross media advertising campaigns to reach their audience whenever and wherever they are with a greater transparency of advertising performance.

To manage and track cross media advertising campaigns media sellers need to streamline their business processes. With the Salesforce native CloudSense platform, it’s easy to add new products for quick launches, order management is simplified to ensure what’s sold is delivered and it’s straightforward to configure, price and quote complex advertising requirements.
