In a time when cutting costs is critical to local broadcast and media companies, rethinking your tech stack can lead to increased savings. There are added costs and inefficiencies when you must use multiple systems to facilitate the sales process. In an effort to streamline the sales process and reduce expenses, you’ll want a comprehensive broadcast sales platform to handle it all.
Disparate Systems Eat Up Budget and Time
How many different tools do your sellers use now to manage ad spot revenue? For some enterprises, it could include:
- Traffic system
- Proposal application
- Yield management tool
- Audience measurement
- CRM (customer relationship management) system
The annual fee for using all these systems is likely in the seven-figure range. Even if these platforms have integration capabilities, you may have to pay extra and use manual workarounds. All these fees cut into your margins, which are already slim. Further, using disparate systems requires additional time for your sellers to go back and forth. That’stime that takes away from prospecting and pitching and is an area where errors can occur.
Media companies have been chasing these challenges for years. The industry hasn’t had a lot of good options until now, with Marketron REV.

What Are the Potential Consolidation Savings with REV?
Determining how much you can save depends on your current budget for sales technology. Many of the applications media companies use today come with a high price tag, and being expensive doesn’t mean they “work” for every situation; you’ll pay more for connecting systems, using premium features like analytics or accessing your data. In our internal review of the costs of these options, your organization could save millions of dollars every year by consolidating your tech stack. Such a number would positively impact your bottom line while your salespeople receive better technology.
