Ad Sales Genuis is Best CRM I Have Ever Used

2021-09-02

I am very happy our company uses ASG because it helps me be more efficient, which allows me to have more time for generating sales not managing data. It is easy to use and helps me manage my projects.

Pros

I can find everything I need on the client page: contact info, email correspondence, contracts, invoicing, past due balances, notes and follow ups.

Cons

I wish I knew how to use the email marketing tool or how to set up templates but that is on me for not taking the time to learn how to do this.

Give it a try!

2018-10-04

Our company is very small - we have a total of 6 ASG users - and we all have our hands in different parts of the production process so we need access to multiple parts of ASG.

Pros

. - great for sales and CRM - organized - many options on reports and filtering - marketing to filtered lists - dashboard has everything I need to see through out the day - customer service is super responsive and very pleasant to talk to - developers take my ideas into consideration - continually pushing out new updates with new features - training videos and courses - attractive/not boring looking

Cons

. - isn't quite what our production team needs - having to use QuickBooks Online isn't great but we are working with it - because of all the new updates some bugs occur periodically but once you send them a support ticket on it they fix it immediately - you cannot email back and forth with clients on 1 continuous thread like you would on an external email system

Intuitive Platform

2020-08-11

ASG is one stop shop and I appreciate that concept.

Pros

I value the full integration from the lead/contact/contract points on the sales side to the invoice/payment/report/commission features on the accounting side. The "activity" feature that is seen and shared by all levels of the team is most valuable.

Cons

I would like more flexibiity with the report features as well.

ASG: Perfect CRM for Multi-Channel Publishing

2021-01-09

On the dashboard they can track their individual goals, team goals, and other reports like YOY, expired contracts, tasks, follow ups and so forth.

Pros

We have different kinds of products, some are inventory and time based, others are monthly, others are quarterly and all fit into this one CRM.

Cons

If ASG had an email sequencing tool than we would be able to save even more money on our sequencing software.

This software has eliminated the need for extra systems

2020-05-15

We no longer have to manage from spreadsheets and the integration with quickbooks means that we spend much less time dealing with bookkeeping inconsistencies.

Pros

Very pleased with the issue based management. Easy to see sales, payments, invoices to be sent, etc.

Cons

We would love to have an app so sales people could use it easier on the road from their phone.

2020-03-14

Overall the experience is good, but a few things could be improved.

Pros

I also like the marketing function of creating email blasts.

Implementation of the ASG software was a game-changer

2020-05-22

Business Issues we are solving with ASG: 1) Communication - both internal & external 2) On-time & even early payments due to Invoicing being connected to the on-line payment gateway. 3) Significant reduction in the need for data entry 4) Organization - Customer information and notes are being utilized to better inform anyone that may come in contact with the account 5) Contracts being connected thru Docusign has added an efficiency in workflow

Pros

The ability for the entire organization to begin communicating under one primary CRM software.

Cons

Also, those touchpoints could help generate the feedback you may need, if your looking at ways to expand the softwares capabilities.

Ease & Functionality on par with the leading CRMs

2020-09-14

Excellent!

Pros

Dashboard allows to quickly and efficiently review current tasks and the tasks that are being completed in real-time to manage accounts and sales activity.

Cons

At times, the correlation of parent accounts/agencies is not reflected as clearly as it could be and emails or contacts are not interchangeable shared meaning that notes may not be on both accounts.

Great for the sales team, not the best for production, but the benefits outweigh the setbacks

2020-07-14

A lot of business was being lost because of a lack of followup, and not because of any fault of the sales team, but it is very difficult to filer and focus on leads without a good crm. I would recommend this for any sales team in the ad sales business.

Pros

Our team loves the collaborative features that helps us coordinate strategy and puts all of our data in one, easy to access space.

Cons

The only group on our team that has difficulty with integration is our production team.

Great move for our company

2020-10-12

Once we worked through the transition from another product, it was much easier to navigate. Customer Service with Ad Sales Genius has been amazing.

Pros

Our clients love the customer portal and the ability to upload their artwork, view their account balance, etc.

Cons

When going back and forth from reports to a client screen you have to enter into search each time, wish the previous window would stay open.

ASG has improved our inter-department communication

2020-05-19

Since all our information is stored in one place, it makes communications from Management to Sales to Billing to Production all more seamless as notes can be tied to each individual account for each department to see.

Pros

ASG has allowed us to get rid of multiple other systems that different departments were using and store all our csm and ad information in one place.

Cons

There are improvements that can be made to the graphics side of how ASG integrates with our existing printing processes.
