Amazing platform!

5.0 3 years ago

Pros:

We are a student run college newspaper and this platform has made ad sales, publication timelines and more so seamless! The prior platform wasn't web based and very outdated. This has brought us to a new level.

Cons:

To be fair, we are still learning the platform but take advantage of the webinars as often as possible.

Magazine Manager Helps Keep it Together!

5.0 4 weeks ago New

Comments: Easy to use and manage all of my working accounts. Providing detailed report outs of past years - comparisons to previous issues and products.

Pros:

Keeping everything in one place and easily pulling needed information. Keeps me on task - providing quick review of past sales / etc.

Cons:

The inability to schedule our digital packages with many products as one line item - while still providing a sub job jacket or something for artwork and schedule

The Good, Bad & the Ugly

Comments: I find it much more difficult that my previous database to work with when it comes to cancelling converted proposals.

Pros:

The positive using this software is it is easy to see Accounts payable send invoices if needed.

Cons:

It is not user friendly. I find this software very difficult and cumbersome to manipulate.

Mag manager

5.0 4 months ago

Pros:

Magazine manager allows me to keep organized with all of my tasks. Future calls scheduled meetings. These features help me tremendously with my daily workflow and time management. What I like best for each contact entered, I can go to notes and activity and enter or review what was discussed last.

Cons:

What I like least about magazine manager is that there are too many ways to search for a contact. This leads to multiple entries of the same business. This has caused confusion and controversy between other sales reps.

It's made of a Magazine/Newspaper business

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: Overall I am quite happy with the change, and look forward to growing with magazine manager and learning the new features that they are constantly adding on a regular basis.

Pros:

I finally found a CRM that was built for the publishing industry that we didn't have to pay someone a lot of money to build out. They are constantly doing updates to make it or intuitive and friendly.

Cons:

Sometimes it is more complicated than it needs to be, or they haven't completely developed certain aspects they are still under development.
