5 Tips to Find the Right Software for Your Agency.

Home/News, Software/5 Tips to Find the Right Software for Your Agency.
Managing an advertising agency, creative studio or marketing department can be a difficult task. Things can spiral out of control quickly and send you into the horrible mission of ‘playing catch up’. This is why it is crucial to find the right software that suits your needs. Every agency is different, so it’s important to consider all the variables when looking for the right match!

So to help you out, we’ve put together 5 tips for finding the right software for your agency, creative studio or marketing department.

GOALS! GOALS! GOALS!

Before you even start looking for software, you need to determine what your MAIN goal for the software is. Your business type will determine this goal. It could range from having a better Customer Relationship Management system, being able to track staffing time, enhanced Project Management timelines, easier media booking, simpler billing, more comprehensive reporting.. the list goes on! Find out what it is you need the software to achieve and then begin your search.

“I need this.. But I really want that!”

Don’t let yourself get caught up in all the fancy features that are being offered. Sit down and really knuckle down what it is you need the software to do. If you’re a creative agency do you really need all the fancy booking features? Although there might be some pretty cool added ‘perks’, don’t let yourself be tricked into picking software that doesn’t fit you or your business needs.

Do you have to be Einstein to use the software?

One of the hardest things to do is to find a project management system for your agency that is EASY to use. Do you really want to spend hours on end trying to learn a system? To avoid this, don’t get sucked into free trials. Get a free demonstration of the software by someone who already knows how to use it. You get to see the system and learn how to use it. Two birds, one stone.

Just so you know, we at Agency In A Box will bring the software RIGHT TO YOU so you can see it in action. It’s super easy to book a free demo. Just click here.

Is the software adaptable?

Business grows. It’s a fact. As your advertising agency, creative studio or marketing department gets busier, your project management software needs to be able to keep up! So it’s crucial to find out any limitations of the software such as:

  • Can you book media in any region?
  • How many projects can you have going at the same time?
  • Will the software become to slow if you have too many clients?
  • How many staff members can use the software at once?
  • Is the software transferable from one computer to the next?

Want to know something cool? Agency In A Box suits any business size; small studios to full servicing advertising agencies. We make the software suit YOUR business.

Do you have to be a millionaire?

At the end of the day, it does come down to price. “It does everything that I want.. But it’s too expensive!” Sometimes software is outrageously overpriced and it’s okay to knock these options back, however, sometimes what you WANT may be out of your budget and you may need to reconsider exactly what it is you REALLY NEED. (There’s that need and want again.)

At Agency In A Box, it’s important to us that you get the system that is most suited to you. After all, there’s no use in having a piece of software that you can’t use!
