ASK-CRM is an advertising sales software system developed specifically for the Newspaper/Media industry by industry veterans. Account executives successfully use it to more easily manage their territory by ensuring that all prospects as well as active and inactive accounts are contacted on a regular basis. Additional emphasis is placed on the total pipeline compared to goals…keeping everyone focused on selling and increasing revenue.

Unlike other CRM tools ASK-CRM also provides everything necessary for an account executive to develop comprehensive multi-product proposals that meet an advertisers needs. The proposals are automatically integrated into the pipeline and goals tracking process. Products rates are loaded into ASK-CRM for seamless solution/proposal development.

iPublish Media Solutions (formerly Wave2 Media Solutions) is an industry leader in the community publishing market whose early vision was to automate the publishing process. Having years of experience in all facets of ad operations we were looking for the next great development in advertising. In early 2006 we noticed the emergence of self-service advertising and quickly set a goal to develop a self-service platform that was enterprise level cloud based easy to use white label and cost effective for even the smallest community publisher.

Until iPublish Media Solutions came along self-service advertising solutions were referred to as a “tool” suggesting a compromise of quality or functionality limited in its application. We decided to break the mold and successfully utilized an enterprise-level approach to our product development. We built a solution using the worlds best technology without the cost or complexity one would expect.

Our solution performs two basic functions for publishers; first we build ads and second we rate and sell those ads. Our Java based Wave2 Publishing Platform W2PP ensures the highest throughput expandability and flexibility for our applications. We integrated Adobe InDesign Server “the worlds standard for high end publishing. This guarantees the same high quality output an advertiser would receive from the most expensive agency in the world.

Our AdPortal e-commerce platform is considered the best there is and when Adobe made Flash open source we jumped at the opportunity and developed the Wave2 Rich Media Server. We then added HTML 5 in order to support smart phones and notebooks. In 2014 we added support for DFP Premium and responsive design completing our vision to publish anything anywhere. The Wave2 self-service solution is the only one of its kind that supports both print and digital ads. Today sellers and buyers can place or browse any type of ad using any device from anywhere.

All of these features combined deliver lower drop-off rates fewer support calls with virtually no down-time and far greater selling opportunities for a publisher to its advertisers. Our applications focus on upselling advertising rather than discounting; delivering higher revenue at lower cost. A cloud based solution we made it available for a low monthly fee where today our average customer realizes a 300% to 400% ROI every year they use Wave2.

Couple this superior e-commerce publishing solution with a world-class support organization it is easy to see why were considered the leader in our field. 99% of Wave2 customers renew their agreements year over year which is testament to the success of the platform and our support.
