Maximizing the operational productivity of marketing, sales, Web production and creative teams with centralized collection of brand and marketing assets and automation support of marketing communication projects.
How automation within marketing operations:
- Speeds time-to-market of online and offline marketing content
- Enables rapid synchronization of online and print marketing communications
- Improves brand-voice consistency while reducing defect rates and off-brand messages
- Lowers the total life cycle costs of marketing contentand
- Enables reallocation of internal cost-savings to other revenue-generating investments such as additional media or ad word buys, higher production values of media, etc.
Many secondary, unintended consequences continue to flow from the broad adoption of the Internet. Notably, Internet adoption has necessitated the digitization of marcom supply chains. Electronic systems now manage thousands of requests for proposal, media-insertion orders, and invoices, as well as the production, distribution, review, and final authorization of marketing materials.
With sudden clarity and alarm, management can see inefficient workflows and processes and call for corrective action. As a result, many firms now pursue an aggressive strategy of outsourcing inefficient, non-core activities and processes.
Many marketing operations outsource collateral creation, localization, print production, and fulfilment. Progressive operations now outsource entire business functions, such as creative services, publishing, and Web site management.
This outsourcing of business functions results in what analysts call marcom supply-chain integration and the application of strategic sourcing disciplines to marketing procurements.
Marcom supply-chain integration emphasizes the outsourcing of complex workflows to centers of excellence: business operations that incorporate best practices, high levels of workflow automation, and the disciplines of continuous quality improvement. SHOW LESS READ MORE >
