Improved Customer Communication is Key Focus in Latest MediaSpan Production Management Software Release

ProductionManagerPror 5 introduces new customer portal and the ability to manage multi-media files in the latest release

MediaSpan, a leading provider of digital content management, online marketing, advertising, and business productivity solutions for the world's leading media companies announced today the latest release of their production management system, ProductionManagerPror 5.

"Keeping in mind the need to continually improve the communication process between customers, sales, and production we are excited to announce the inclusion of the customer portal in our latest release, said Kevin Stoinoff Product Manager."

The customer portal will improve efficiencies between customers, sales, and the production staff, making proofing and receiving files from a customer a simple and quick process. Highlights of the customer portal include the ability for:

 Customers to view proofs, edit the files and approve or submit changes without ever leaving the browser.
 Publishers to post an online catalogue of previously run ads with the ability for their customers to reorder placements with or without changes to the copy.
 The elimination of an FTP server as the customer portal gives customers the ability to upload ad components or complete ads directly in the portal.
 Integration with MediaSpan's AdManagerPror web portal giving publishing customers the ability to manage not only their ad content but even pay their bills and view complete account information all within the browser.
In addition to the customer portal, other features in this latest release include the ability to handle audio, video, and other digital media formats. ProductionManagerPror 5 also has updated the server technology for compatibility with the latest operating systems for Mac and PC plus Adobe CS5.5 integration.
