Creative & Marketing
Creative Services & Marketing teams have a growing list of services provided to organizations across the company. Managing a wide variety of marketing projects - campaigns, advertisements, banners, eBooks, tradeshows, store sets (and the list goes on) - with demanding timelines, different team members, and many sub-components is challenging. Spreadsheets, email, and electronic folders just don’t provide what is needed in today’s fast paced marketing world. We recognize that project briefs, brand management, artwork creation, and projects that can be as short as hours to as long as a year require a system that can capture and manage it all.
The Impact of Your Challenges
- Project Delays
- Extra Artwork Revisions
- RUSH requests
- Missed Deadlines
- Teaming Breakdown
- eCommerce Information Problems
Trying to manage a long list of projects with numerous moving parts without a proper solution in place is simply unrealistic. There are too many emails, side discussions, undocumented requests, and unnecessary meetings for reviews. Accountability is difficult, capacity planning is impossible, and there is no way to generate reports for status and results reviews.
