Managing Agency Production Costs

Advertisers want to improve their management of their production costs.

Production costs are in the headlines.

Again.

That's because clients always want to ensure their costs are managed with fair and accurate systems and procesess. They are faced with a number of challenges to overcome

  • The advertising market is more global, faster, competitive and complex than in the past. Quick access to complete and accurate client production data across the whole business is essential for decision making.
  • If an advertiser uses a number of production companies in a number of markets, then sourcing and compiling information from various sources can be challenging.
  • The level of detail that production partners store and manage is not always what advertisers want to store and manage. While there are some overlaps, their needs can differ.
  • Sourcing data from different systems takes time and can be rigorous. It is important that the process is not time consuming with the right expertise on the job.
