AdStage
AdStage is great if you're an agency or an in-house marketer managing a lot of ad budget, a lot of campaigns, or a large number of clients and you want to get the day-to-day tasks cleared to focus on higher-brain-stem tasks. Bid and budget management are replaced by rules. Holiday sales are replaced with flighting. All of your team members can log in, access their accounts, set up their reports and have them send to clients without having to lift a finger.

When we have turnover in our photo taker role, this app makes training very easy. We have had trouble in the past with staff just not catching on with what features to take the photos of and what order to put them in, and the app walks them through how to do so. Our old 360 software was also a little difficult to use, and this app makes it very easy to use. Now we don't have to use several different apps to take our photos and do 360s

AdStage has been great and the only reason we wouldn't renew is if we decided to build this all out internally for API access. But, customer services is great, the product is great and I'd definitely recommend it.

AdStage had great support. They got back to me quickly every time, they always had or found an answer for what I was looking for, they took my feedback well, and they were knowledgeable with the platform and any issues I had. I have worked with a lot of other companies that are slow and AdStage definitely isn't one of them.

vAuto Provision is very basic for photo taking. It doesn't walk you through what photos to take and when. It also doesn't allow for 360 photo taking. You have to buy a seperate cox auto product to do this. It also doesn't allow for photo background removal, you have to buy another product to do that if you chose to do so

Return on Investment
AdStage
  • In terms of hours saved, it's hard to pin down, but we definitely spend more time on the meaningful, strategic, or artistic tasks now than we used to.
  • AdStage is also a great tool to roll out during the sales process because our clients love to hear that we're making decisions automatically with data and automation rather than just hiring more junior people to push buttons.
  • During black Friday this year our team all setup campaigns to flight, meaning they weren't sitting around the turkey with their laptops out. That's an ROI in company culture that's hard to measure, but extremely valuable.
