ad DEPOT app from 5 fifteen launches in Salesforce app exchange
  • Empowering field sales with mobile solutions for iPad and Android devices

October 13th, 2014 - 5 fifteen, a leading UK software company supplying publishers throughout the world, today launches a new ad DEPOT app, available on the Salesforce app exchange. ad DEPOT fits seamlessly within Salesforce to enable sales teams to capture media scheduling with advertisement details, issue dates, digital ranges and quantities and pricing; a total advertising solution for digital and print booking.

"ad DEPOT turns your mobile device into a portable sales office," explains Sarah Jackson, Product Manager 5 fifteen Ltd., "You can log calls, respond to hot leads, work opportunities, or check dashboards no matter where you are; and collaborate across teams, from anywhere."

5 fifteen's original ad DEPOT app was launched in May this year with great success.

Today's upgraded version allows users to benefit from 5 fifteen's fully featured quotation solution: quote&CLOSE, which also launches today.

Bookings are sent to external systems quickly and simply for production, planning or billing purposes using the industry standard AdsML, eliminating the need for bespoke integration between Salesforce and other back office systems. The ad DEPOT app comes with a custom approvals process, which can be used to check accuracy for new staff, provide a review by finance or approval of bookings by management.

"Our Salesforce app is ideal for those customers who don't want to go down the ‘big bang' route for system replacement," states Jackson, "ad DEPOT is native Salesforce and can be integrated into any billing solution for onward processing. Combined with quote&CLOSE for accurate rating, this simple app reduces reliance on any legacy ad booking system."

Booking screens allow quick entry of data using synonyms, and configuration settings allow data capture to be completely flexible to enable simple or complex bookings - whichever is preferable to the publisher. ad DEPOT can capture multi-media bookings so print and digital media can be sold on one booking for a single total price to customers.

The app is available now direct from the Salesforce app exchange at https://appexchange.salesforce.com/
