Why Use MMS for your direct response advertising needs
Increased Bottom-Line Success
It’s simple: Media Management System shows you what works and what doesn’t. This allows you to focus your advertising budget on the media, creatives and call centers that make you money. Media Management System gives you this information in a timely manner, so your media strategy can be adjusted on a day-to-day basis. The end result is more profitable direct response campaigns.
Greater Contribution from Your Top People
You’ve heard it before: a successful organization starts with great people. You need your best people to use their intelligence and creativity to advance your business goals, rather than spending it on repetitive and routine tasks. Media Management System helps you achieve this by automating such tasks as data import, response matching, creating and sending media orders, traffic and dubbing instructions, payables, receivables, reporting and more. Countless hours of manual data entry and struggling with spreadsheets are eliminated.
Web Platform Allows Use from Anywhere
Media Management System’s Software as a Service (SaaS) platform allows you to manage your DR campaigns from anywhere. All you need is Internet access and your name and password.
While Media Management System is a powerful, turnkey solution straight “out of the box,” it is also built with flexible technology that supports customization to your needs.

MMS has always kept us on the cutting edge of technology and with the MMS PDA you can access critical data anywhere and at any time so you can make sound analysis on the fly. This is only one example of why the direct response industry should adopt MMS as a standard. One thing that has always impressed me, and which has helped us a great deal, is the fact that MMS is a true, Web-based system. This has helped us run our business smoothly, while our buyers work simultaneously from various states. This is not offered by the other systems in the DR space.
President at Direct Impact Group
We brought InfoTech’s MMS on board in 2003, and from the beginning it was evident that MMS is much more than a typical software system for media buying and reporting. We realized that it is actually an instrument that not only serves our direct response business needs, but also integrates easily with other systems and incorporates other business processes, providing a smooth interaction of our various business aspects. Moreover, we love the fact that InfoTech’s MMS team has a great understanding of the direct response business, and given the structured design of the system, they were able to very quickly turn around our various customization requests.
