Streamlining Media Management: Overcoming the Challenges of Media Complexity

Dive into the complexities of modern media challenges. Explore how diverse channels and investor expectations intersect with hurdles like siloed systems and spreadsheet proliferation. Discover how Boostr simplifies operations, unifies tracking, and empowers media businesses for enhanced profitability and efficiency. 

The Problem of Media Complexity 

Today’s media companies face tough challenges, from proliferating channels and formats to increased pressure from investors and shareholders to deliver profitable growth. Most media companies have hundreds, if not thousands, of product offerings – and booking one affects the availability and potential performance of the rest. 

Siloed systems, countless spreadsheets, and a constantly changing sales organization make setting and optimizing a strategy exceeding difficult, if not downright impossible. 

Forecast data can’t be trusted. In order to be successful, you need to know where you stand. However, stale or incomplete data make it impossible for a media business to forecast available inventory, sales pipeline trends, or profits. 

Hard to get answers quickly. Rev Ops, Ad Ops, and Sales team members spend hours each week tracking down key figures – then double checking they are accurate. Even simple questions like “What’s my profit margin on this deal?” or “Will we hit our target this quarter?” can be hard to answer with data in multiple locations.

Siloed systems don’t talk to one another. Most media companies have a complex ecosystem of third-party and proprietary solutions that don’t integrate seamlessly – or require lots of heavy lifting and manual work to maintain or scale. Siloed systems slow down deal flow at every stage, from I/O to billing and reconciliation. 

Leaving money on the table. Without a real-time source of truth, it’s impossible to ensure each deal is sold at the best price with the optimal margin. A unified view of the business is required to maximize and prioritize revenue growth opportunities.
