Planning & Budgeting
Marcom Managers planning and budgeting tool supports the entire planning and budget processes in a marketing department. The process starts by adding strategic objectives for communication into the tool. These objectives guide the planning process. As the plan is being structured, activities are added and partial goals are set up in line with the set objectives. Meanwhile, the budget is set, approached either top-down (i.e. based on predetermined assets) or down up (i.e. letting your ambitions set the pace). Once the budget is determined, the plan and budgeting are sent for approval. Upon this, the operational year can start. Throughout the year, new activities are added to the plan and old ones are updated.
Hence, there is always a valid communication plan available for everybody. Different ways of accessing activities include searching for particular disciplines or sorting by geographic markets. Dashboards and reports enable control, and the constant access to updated information give the means to comfortably and effortlessly making the right priorities. Planning Manager communicates with other applications through an API. E.g. financial information can be retrieved from the financial system, slicing away time spent waiting for emails or telephone calls between different departments.
Collaborate & Produce
Productions can be connected to every plan. Each production operates as a workspace for a number of internal and external participants, such as printers, photographers, ad agencies, and newspapers. The tool supports that best practice work flows can be connected to different types of productions, e.g. developing a brochure or executing an event. The gathered knowledge is no longer in the hands of individuals, but built into the tool. Work groups can cooperate in sharing files, and delegating who does what when it comes to composing texts, translating, taking photographs, designing the layout, printing, etc. A key function in the Production Manager is supporting the approval process of the material. For each task that is added to the project, the system sends an email to concerned users. Tasks are also located under “My Page” which gives a clear overview of all ongoing tasks. All steps and comments being logged in the format seen in social networks such as Facebook facilitate communication around the products.Large emphasis is placed upon participants in a project sharing experiences and inspiration to reach the common goals and objectives. Members of the work groups can comment on the tasks, projects, and objectives. With our Media Generator the users can easily fill in templates to produce high resolution artwork on the fly that automatically adhere to the company's brand guidelines e.g. brochures, leaflets, datasheets banners, etc.
