Over the years, Media Services Group has listened to its customers to such a degree that long-time users like us feel like we've had a hand in developing the software that we use for our business everyday. That is a great relationship to have with your software vendor.
Everyone at Media Services Group has been terrific to work with and Élan does so much more than we anticipated. We expect to deploy Élan as a global solution, one platform for everything. Web integration and PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) are next events and we are very excited for those.
We have been on Élan since May of 2014. Everyone on the Élan team that helped us with the transition and since has been great to work with. We still learn more every day!
“We wanted tighter integration between our back office system and customer-facing website, along with additional features such as user subscription self-service, electronic product delivery and more robust reporting. Élan gave us that."
The Media Services Group is an amalgam of companies – some new, some older.
One of them dates back to 1972 when Nixon was still president and Pong was the video game rage.
We provide cloud-based software to media companies. Our customers publish books, websites, magazines and newsletters. Many of them put on events, conferences and trade shows.
We are a tech driven company. In fact, our CEO and our President are the primary system architects. We spend a ridiculous amount on development and love [nearly] every moment of it. We do have a small sales and marketing team, but rely mostly on word of mouth to earn new business.
We also employ a diverse [some may say eclectic] bunch of media experts to help you get the most out of our software.
Our software is used by hundreds of companies and thousands of professionals around the world. We have offices in the U.S.A. and in the United Kingdom.
Once known as a tech whiz kid but now too old for that title. Thinks he's hip but we know he watches Downton Abbey.
A tech visionary that loves to create cool new stuff. Spends his evenings reading blogs on design and user experience.
A one-time CIO at Penton Publishing, Tom left to create his own e-commerce company. We liked it enough to buy it.
Small in stature but big on organization and process. We hear she arranges her groceries by size and color in her refrigerator.
An accomplished hoarder in both the physical and digital realms, Benjamin’s minor super power is being able to find the things he is looking for. Except his DVD of Sunset Boulevard, that thing has been missing for years.
Loves to read and relax on a beach so not sure why she still lives in the Midwest. After years of commanding that her family treat her like a queen, she now heads up our Accounting and Royalties offerings
Actually makes a system implementation interesting and entertaining. Probably should have been an actor.
Ron makes our Cloud system work. He enjoys drawing complex diagrams and uses lots of TLA's [Three letter Acronyms].
The publishing veteran who manages our UK operation. He is a little too obsessed with Arsenal Football Club.
Worth speaking to just to hear his broadcast-quality voice. With at least a couple of decades in the media business, he is often interesting as well.
Once a BPA Auditor, but he is much nicer now. Allen really knows a lot about circulation management.
Perennial winner of our Miss Congeniality award, Ted is typically the first person you will chat with when you contact us. He is the heart and soul of our client and prospect outreach.
Ray has overseen dozens of implementations and lived to tell the tale. Speaks softly but carries great knowledge.
Jeff's dog. Doesn't do much but we thought it was a cute photo.
We have offices throughout North America, an office in London, England
and satelite employees [seemingly] everywhere in between.
Here is a short list of our brick & mortar locations.
