Call center centric features highlight the latest release.

ANN ARBOR, MI (November 19, 2012) – MediaSpan announced today the release of the latest version of its versatile and powerful AdManagerPro advertising content management solution.

The new version includes a number of sales and call center centric enhancements.

Key features of AdManagerPro 5.5 include:

  • Automatic account payments via credit card
    The billcCard on invoice function can now be applied at the account level. When this function is activated, any unpaid items that invoice will be paid off with the on-account credit card.

  • Improved searching 
    • Quick search — A quick search field allows typing in a name or number and will return results for any matching accounts, customers, and phone numbers.
    • Navigation drawers — A new sidebar contains default navigation "drawers" that are always available for viewing the most recent search results, set aside ads, and ad-order history information.
    • Search result tabs — Now the last seven searches are saved in separate tabs for quick navigation and assisting with solicit and callback lists.

  • New reports
    • Ads changed — This report shows information on ads that were changed during a specified time frame.
    • Budget — This report shows budget results that match the budget dashboard results.
    • Yearly recap — This report shows information on ads published or invoiced during a specified fiscal or calendar year.

  • Production management status — This new tool allows production managers to view the production status of ads across all publications for a specified date.

  • Quick set aside — The quick set aside button places the current ad on set aside, closes the ad screen, and returns the user to the last-used find screen.  This makes returning to ads a simple process when a user is interrupted or has to switch to a new ad.
