Steve Collins, Director at Alpine Interactive, says, "Quickcut gives us a huge advantage because it enables us to create and validate our ads against individual newspaper and magazine specifications and submit them to an increasing number of publishers in total security and in full confidence that they will reproduce to the highest standards and without any errors."
"What I like about Quickcut is the reliability - each advert is flight-checked against each publications' exact specifications, so you know it will be accepted once it reaches the publisher. Features, such as the online reporting function that allows the management and tracking of an ad in real time including automatic confirmation from the publisher to show the advert has been successfully received, give a reassurance not to mention an end-to-end total workflow efficiency that we didn't have before with other hybrid solutions, with the benefit of complete closed loop control. With Quickcut we can create, validate and then send ads to magazine and newspaper publishers throughout UK or worldwide in minutes, safe in the knowledge that every publisher will receive the ad to their specific requirements.
