Advertising Agencies

“I need to automate to meet changing client needs.”

The advertising industry has undergone dramatic changes over the last few years. Globalization and market consolidation have caused a spike in client demands for new, innovative, “outside-the-box” thinking that integrates multiple disciplines, multiple languages, and multiple mediums – whether it’s product placement on prime-time shows or web-based advertising and promotions.

At the same time, clients are exercising a tighter rein on spending, demanding more – more time, more talent, more impact – from every dollar they spend, and transitioning from retainer arrangements to job-based contracts. In some cases, long-time client relationships are being quickly traded in favor of a “best service for lower price” trend. In response, our Project Financial Management service offering can help you obtain the financial information you need so that you can assess and respond to each client appropriately.

Faced with these new challenges, ad agencies are reexamining their business models and improving internal operations with information systems that increase automation & control. However, technology can only go so far. The true value of any agency is the creative talent that lies within and the effective management of the creative workforce is the key to performance. Our Talent Management for Success service offering can help improve the management of these resources.
