AirTime Sales Software is Ideal Solution for Sales House
Amsterdam, December 12, 2016 – Operative announced today that BrandDeli, a fast growing sales house in the Netherlands, is now using MediaPro as their exclusive ad sales system. BrandDeli is a joint venture between Fox Networks Group, Discovery Networks Benelux and Viacom International Media Networks and is responsible for the sales of spot TV, online advertising and brand partnerships. MediaPro, an Operative solution, is used by the leading media sales organizations in Europe. With workflows and functionality designed for sales houses, MediaPro has the flexibility to customize the system based on the needs of each channel that the sales house represents.
“Airtime sales is a creative and fast moving industry in a market where there is heavy competition. We need a system that will let us follow up quickly on changes in markets and sales strategies. The MediaPro team has been in the industry since 1996 and understands the complex European ad-sales market. We felt the team and the software gave us the best opportunity to grow our business.”- thus Mattijs Welling, Head of Commercial Operations of BrandDeli.
Operative worked with BrandDeli to deliver a fully tailor-made version of MediaPro. Herman Maat, Managing Director of Operative’s MediaPro, commented: “In a very short period of 8 months, we were able to apply all customizations and configurations that were required by BrandDeli to implement the typical needs of the local market and the sales strategy of BrandDeli. In addition to creating custom workflows, we implemented the ‘B2B web service’, a de facto standard in the market which connects MediaPro to the system used by agencies for budget requests and order processing. The majority of order and budget related communication between an agency and a sales house is handled through this programmatic trading standard.”
