BREEZE for MSG Élan™
A WORLD-CLASS INTEGRATION WITH THE LEADING SALES & CRM PLATFORM FOR MAGAZINE PUBLISHERS
Working together, Breeze and MSG Élan™ make the process of ad production elegant and effortless. With Elan Ad managing CRM and Order Entry, Breeze helps do the heavy lifting of getting creatives from customers while managing the entire ad production workflow. With the two systems talking to each other -- throughout the process -- Breeze and Elan Ad make sure Finance, Sales, Production and Management teams
are always in sync
SUBMIT CREATIVES WITH ADDESK
With AdDesk, advertisers manage any file type (print, digital, marketing, etc...) and checks all files against your specs — files arrive ready to go with no issues.
Our integration receives orders from Elan Ad in real-time. For orders with customer submitted creative, AdDesk automatically sends an email notification with a link to upload creatives and ad information. With a single click in an email, advertisers can submit their files in AdDesk and be on their way.
REAL-TIME CROP & PLACE
Once submitted, "press-ready" files can be manipulated to ensure they fit the space defined by Elan Ad. With the ability to view safe, bleed and trim marks on screen, advertisers can easily place their files and make sure they look they way they should.
EVERYTHING IN ELAN. AUTOMATICALLY.
With files submitted and pre-flighted through AdDesk, press-ready files are delivered automatically to Elan Ad. Ad previews, comments, and any order information provided by the advertiser are also delivered to Elan for access by order entry and CRM users. It's a seamless integration that improves communication across all departments and makes life easier for your most valuable asset -- your customers.
LAYOUT SYSTEM INTEGRATION
With Breeze Layout, users see all ads and editorial in one place. On-screen notifications present potential issues along the way. Placement requests come directly from Elan Ad. Breeze Layout manages competitive placement issues, and other business rules that you can easily define.
LIVE ISSUE MAPS IN ELAN AD
With the layout complete, Breeze delivers the issue map directly to Elan Ad so Sales staff can view their ads in the issue as it's coming together. Finance can also review ad placement in Elan Ad to confirm placement, pricing, and other order details are correct.
“Errors have gone down to zero, and by significantly reducing billing errors, Breeze not only saved processing time, but boosted revenue previously lost through mistakes. Breeze is more than a product...it completely changed our workflow from start to finish.”
Senior Director, Operations | The Enthusiast Network
“With Breeze, a rep in the field can create a proposal, turn it into a contract, and, with the push of a button, send the IO to the accounting people. Those same users also have access to advertiser history and creative library. Now, sales staffs can pick-up the creative and view proofs. Sales reps have a greater sense of control and trust in our operations. It’s truly the end-to-end system that we were looking for.”
