WideOrbit is a stand out in the industry

What do you like best?

I do like the access to running many different reports and how using the same template across the system. I've been able to help management gain the information they need in a more timely fashion using some of the more stand reports. I also really like how knowledgeable they customer service team seems to be when I call. They are able to help me get to the bottom of issues with solutions rather quickly.

What do you dislike?

It sometimes is very slow to respond. If multiple users are on the software at the time, it takes forever to load.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have patience at first as it takes some getting used to. It does have features that we don't use, but overall it is a great product for what we utilize it for.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use WideOrbit as the traffic system for our TV Station. It is certainly a lot more user friendly than traffic systems we've had in the past.

WideOrbit 9.0 Review

What do you like best?

WideOrbit 9.0 is very user friendly. The newest feature to partially unfinalize a log in progress is very useful to sports networks to accommodate day of changes.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike about WideOrbit. The software is easy to use, the support team is very easy to work with, and they are constantly coming out with new versions and personalizing our playlists.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I've seen many demos from other Traffic Software companies. WideOrbit has the best easy of use, clarity, and user friendly system that I have seen.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a 24 hour sports network that has to maximize clearance on ROS/InGame spots on a daily basis. The optimizer is very useful in accomplishing that goal.

What Cross-Channel Advertising solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

We have recently learned how to order ingest, which is very beneficial for both us and the client because there is very little room for human error.

Bumpy Start

What do you like best?

Having everything in one place for our entire company. All billing is handled in WO so it makes tracking and reporting more efficient.

What do you dislike?

We had a rocky start with their new digital orders service. We like to complicate things so we had a long on boarding process to be able to get where we are today 2 years later. They should have been a little more buttoned up in order to release.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're a TV client, then this will be a great product for you. it is very efficient. I still believe they have some kinks to work out for the digital product, however, if you do not have a super complicated website, it would be a great product!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Company wide billing in one place.

Integration with our AdServer that has a seamless transition.

Adjust the tabs and search functions to make it customized!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Not Good For Digital Management

What do you like best?

It will integrate with DFP, but is flawed in doing so. If one line is entered incorrectly - it prevents the whole order from not integrating into DFP.

I don't think it integrates into other ad trafficking systems yet.

What do you dislike?

Antiquated system, hard to input new products/ad server commands, doesn't really follow a logical path.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider using other CRMs, trafficking or billing systems.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Billing digital orders and trafficking TV commercials.
