Specify who gets invoices, who gets coop … and how they get the bill, and the system will generate them the right way, every time.
Generate a list of avails for any date range … you can see avails by daypart, hour or minute.
Create as many Break Schedules as you need … and them keep them on file for the day or days that you need them every year. It’s easy to return to the schedule you made last year for the holiday, or last month for the football game.
You define each spot position in each break. Each break can be designated as mandatory, total fill (meaning you fill it entirely if you use a piece of it) or totally optional.
You control where each cut runs, and can specify up to 4 categories to distance this cut from competitive advertisers and your in-house commercial voices. You specify the offset in minutes for each category.
There are 240 different kinds of invoices that can be generated by the system. You’ll probably only want to use a few, but your favorite format will be there!
Highlight the bumped spot to gain information on why it didn’t schedule, and then you can fix the problem and then simply click and double click to place the spot anywhere you choose. You are in control!
Order Entry Grid
If you prefer to enter orders in a spreadsheet format, Second Generation delivers. You can specify the days of the week to include in the grid, and specify every week, every other week, etc. Each entry can be automatically copied for every day following, or for every Monday following, Tuesday, etc.
Order Entry Rotation
You can specify the cuts to rotate for any order. You control the percentage of plays each cut gets for each order.
You can post checks by station, by oldest invoice, or pay individual invoices that you select.
All data is accessible by you in reports. You can print the data directly from Second Generation, or export it to your favorite spreadsheet program for more formatting. Save the template the way you like it, and the report is easy to generate every day, week or month.
