2.118ImprovementFinance / Invoicing / Preinvoicing

Pre-invoice automation is a great way of handling a time consuming but rather straight forward task. However, when issues occur within the automation, you want to be sure that the correct person is notified who can take action to correct any issues within the relevant Media Campaigns.

We have enhanced pre-invoice automation so that you can define which email addresses should receive the job result email, regardless of who started the job. This is a particularly useful improvement for customers who are managing multiple legal entities within one Salesforce Org.

Save time for tasks that matter!

With our new Targeting Sets feature, we're going to improve the life of your Sales Reps.

You can then also give these sets individual names, improving the communication with your clients on Targeting easier!
