NXT Third-Party Digital Integrations: Connecting the Ad Sales Ecosystem
As a local media company, you sell a variety of ad types, including radio spots and digital and third-party digital. Typically, these activities happen in a vacuum and don’t connect. Additionally, you use other sales tools such as CRM (customer relationship management) systems or other platforms for analytics. As a result, your sellers face frustration and obstacles to productivity.
Understanding these challenges, we built NXT with modern architecture that plays nicely with other systems. It also considers the user experience of consolidation and integration. These capabilities often sound great in theory, but unifying multiple systems that are already complex and hard to use doesn’t provide real benefits.
Connections between systems should eliminate the need for back-and-forth. They should also deliver visibility into seller and campaign performance.
NXT integration options include these platform types.
NXT integrates with all three of our radio traffic platforms — Marketron Traffic, Visual Traffic and RadioTraffic™. Marketron Traffic has the most robust and flexible features. By linking digital and traffic solutions, you can manage airtime and digital proposals, orders, campaigns, reporting and billing in one system.
Intuitive workflows and smart technology give your sellers an advantage. They can act fast and quickly propose linear and digital for every campaign. Plus, the feature-rich system is simple to learn and use.
NXT can also connect to many CRM tools. This is useful if your sales organization is a high adopter of this technology, and it keeps contact information current. If a CRM connects to NXT, it can be the source of truth for accounts.
Sales, Business Intelligence and Campaign Data Tools
Larger media companies often leverage sales, business intelligence and campaign data tools to garner more insights into performance. If advanced analytics are critical to your sales operations, NXT can connect with these apps. NXT can share data and metrics with these systems for further analysis and manipulation.
Custom Solutions Desk
Another internal integration for NXT is the ability to add Custom Solutions Desk features. With this product, you get more options for ad tactics with expert support, including:
- Compliant restricted category digital advertising for cannabis, CBD, gambling, alcohol, fireworks and political
- Niche social media advertising sites such as LinkedIn, Snapchat, Pinterest and more
