Adtakr - Orders
“Stopping advertising to save money is like stopping your watch to save time.” – Henry Ford
Adtakr uses a single order for processing an unlimited variety of advertisements.
From print to web ads, each Adtkr module uses the same layout and principles of booking, reducing training time for your users to a minimum. The simplified screens ensure your users can only select options if and when they are available, reducing the chances of booking errors and increasing your level of customer satisfaction.
All our booking modules are designed to reflect the items being booked, so there is no need to select an adtype if you are creating an exhibition booking.
The solution is incredibly flexible and can integrate with other market leaders such as SalesForce, DFP and MailChimp.
MSL have worked with users throughout the design process, to ensure that your sales teams enjoy using the solution, and most importantly, that Adtakr helps them achieve the advertising sales potential.
Designed for Newspapers and Magazines
Magazine centric calendar allows you to select specific date per magazine edition.
Special Edition functionality enables you to book irregular publication dates from the calendar.
Your system can automatically schedule the next available publication date according to your defined deadlines.
Your company's specific non-publishing dates can be added to the calendar, preventing you from booking to a publication that would normally publish on Christmas Day, for example.
Each ad booking can have a variety of publications with a mixture of ad sizes and properties – enabling full campaign booking in one form.

Material Copy per Insertion
The outstanding flexibility of the system is only reinforced by the ability to assign different materials per insertion. This allows full campaign booking on a single advert – each insertion having a different piece of ad copy. This also has a direct impact on your advertiser who can receive one invoice for their whole campaign, instead of per advert.
Users can enter a negotiated rate for the booking. Reports can offer managers full transparency of discounts given against rate card.
A comprehensive review screen allows you to check the booking details or to give a summary to the advertiser. The screen lists all relevant information including publications, date, size, classifications and price.

Multi form bookings
The industrial revolutions saw the advent of the print press. This revolutionised mass distribution, and is arguably the most significant advancement made by the print industry.
Until the dawn of the internet.
This changed the publishing industry dynamic beyond recognition. Newspaper articles are now available online and advertising revenue for local and national advertising has reduced.
Publishers have had to adapt - and fast. Diversification has been the key to success for many.
Software applications that were designed for print advertising had to quickly cater for new channels. Each technological advancement was a further investment for the publisher. Invariably the investment was circumvented by implementing ad-hoc working practices. Unsustainable workflows hindered many new ventures, to the point where their operational success was impacted.
Media Systems Ltd has developed our software solution to enable publishers to book bespoke, even experimental channels, alongside standard requirements of Events, Inserts, Print and Online.
The Multi Form Booking Module offers versatility to companies allowing you to respond immediately to opportunities without upgrading software. The module allows items to be selected from a tree view, to have a specific price, a start and end date. Multi Form Booking can be used as a permanent booking method for a publishing channel, or as a stepping stone for a fully customised booking module.
Media Systems Ltd have developed various ad-hoc booking modules, interfacing with a variety of 3rd party applications and databases over the years. Our team can develop modules according to your specifications, or work with you to develop a module – advising you of the best practises in screen design and data entry.
