SAM (Self-Service Advertising Module) provides a complete, yet simple online portal for your customers at home or work to view and pay outstanding invoices and place their own advertisements into your newspapers, magazines and web sites.
Integration with the main FutureProof and CMS3000 business system databases ensures on-line access to booking, styling, rating, payment and invoicing information and thus no need to replicate this data on your websites.
The standard FutureProof Advertising System Managers module is used to expose your titles, packages, classifications and styles on the website. The styles and pricing setup in your FutureProof Advertising database are automatically available on the web and can be further customised using the usual Booking Restriction facilities available in the System Managers module. It is possible to, for example, change pricing for the web, offer different packages on the web and invoke different deadlines on the web.
Recent enhancements to the System Managers module enable the System Manager to change package names, page group, classification and style prompts.
Adverts placed on the web are directed to the scrutiny queue where they are checked before being released into the main advertising database. The adverts come into FutureProof as prepaid or "to invoice" adverts. A SAM specific payment type may be defined to identify the prepaid adverts within FutureProof. This can then be fed to our CMS3000 system for reconciliation purposes.
Invoicing, statement and credit (status, balance and limit) information is fed back to the on-line user (they must be an account holding customer), in real time, from the CMS3000 database. The website then enables the user to pay outstanding invoices using the on-line credit card function.
With information being processed in real-time the account customer can have their account put on hold or even stopped as their credit status is changed in the CMS3000 system.
