Pros: MediaForce is very intuitive. It is well laid out and has all the features most agencies need including ratings integration, ranker reports, and electronic invoicing. Planning, buying and placing all media is easy with MediaForce. Importing buys from other systems is clean and simple. The customer services is outstanding! No long wait times, and immediate solutions are rendered. MediaForce also offers tiered pricing based on agency needs.

Cons: Being a newer product, little glitches occasionally pop up that need fixing. However, the response is immediate and most are done on the same call or within hours.

Overall: Moving off of one platform to another was a stressful journey. I spent countless hours searching for that perfect platform. Once I connected with the reps at MediaForce, I knew I was headed in the right direction. The transition has been wonderful. The two of them have been incredibly understanding and patient through the transition. The product speaks for itself, but the customer service they provide is on a whole other level.

Pros: It's got a modern interface, and it's fast and easy to use. It has some features and capabilities previous media buying/planning tools I've used did not have. You can have multiple markets and multiple media on one worksheet, and it can calculate a combined reach and frequency for radio and TV. I don't think any other software does that. It's browser-based, not module-based like old school media software, so everything is in front of you all the time. You just open up new tabs if you need to do something while you're in a worksheet. It really is easy to use and makes it easy to replicate buys or create variations of them. Very cool tool.

Cons: It's new so they are still rolling out features. So in the platform there are some features that are greyed out; they aren't available yet. I look forward to giving them a shot.

Overall: It can really expedite the planning/buying process. It's just easier to maneuver around and create buys. I can probably do two or three buys in the time it used to take me to do one in SmartPlus. And if you have any questions or concerns, the team at GaleForce is easy to get a hold of and they seem real responsive. Excellent experience so far.

Pros: We definitely like the ease of use - it's extremely intuitive software. The developers created many shortcuts which save us time, making us more productive than on any other buying software we had used in the past..

Cons: Can't think of anything that we hadn't already worked through during our beta testing...

Overall: Since SmartPlus was decommissioned a while back, we have been trying different buying software and were not happy AT ALL with any of them, regardless of pricing. We contacted MediaForce early-on, and had to wait till they were ready. They allowed us to beta test for them and sincerely listened to our suggestions. The developers wanted to make this the best, easiest to use buying software, and they absolutely achieved their goals!

Pros: MediaForce is very easy to use from an accounting perspective. I can import files from TV and Radio portals and MediaForce automates the matching process from the Order to the Invoice, There are close-up views of spots, run times, commercial names, and all data points. I can find "Spot" outliers that do not match the original Order and move them to other areas or choose to list them as unmatched. MediaForce also has nice reports that list all pertinent data.

Cons: Some features could use a little more refinement, but the support and development teams have been very accommodating of my requests so far, so I'm hopeful.

Overall: I've been using the reconciliation part of MediaForce for seven months and it has made my job much easier. Being a previous SmartPlus user, the transition was very easy. I do more than 50 reconciliations of TV and Radio invoices per month and it's great that I can use this program on any device. I would highly recommend to anyone who has to reconcile media accounts.

Pros: I like the ease of use and the seamless approach from start to finish. I like that you can create multiple versions of a worksheet and that you can break out the various non broadcast media types (digital, out of home, print, etc.) as well as being able to look at both Nielsen and Comscore ratings for TV.

Cons: There are some good reporting features but I would like to see some more customization options. However, I know that is coming down the road, as this is a brand new product and new features are being added.
