Pros: I love the detail and hard work that was put into this software. The built in FTP feature is a huge plus. Being able to make custom rules for each element is perfect and well thought out.

Cons: There no copy rule button. This makes putting together a large show tedious.

Overall: My overall experience with W.O. is a very positive one. Absolutely fantastic customer support as well. I would not use any other Automation in today's world.

Pros: When you finally understand how to use WideOrbit, its a great platform with a lot of useful features. I can quickly copy and update orders as needed and reference back to them later on.

Cons: There is a huge learning curve. Order entry isn't very intuitive and there are a lot of features that take time and practice to use effectively.

Pros: Wide Orbit serves as our billing platform for both tv and digital orders. It is easy to revise orders.

Cons: It is difficult to revise order items from previous months as we cannot adjust the billing. Also it takes a while to get new products added to the platform.

Once you learn the language, consider yourself a pro.

Pros: This program helps mostly eliminate our carbon footprint, using a digital platform for advertising orders.

Cons: The language and workflow of the program can be tricky to grasp at first. However, once you spend the time learning, it quickly becomes much easier to understand.

Pros: I have little good to say about Wide Orbit. I used it when it debuted and for several years thereafter. In theory, it does a nice job of maximizing gross rating points and offers good reporting functionality.

Cons: The problem with Wide Orbit is how clunky and bug-ridden the program is. It would crash without warning. It would take forever to fill breaks. It would not place spots, yet it wasn't clear why the spots weren't placing.

Overall: My overall experience is bad. I found myself trying to work around the program rather than with the program. I do not recommend it.
