Introduction/Overview

Image

Introducing EZ-NET… an option that can save traffic people significant hours per week. Stations that used to spend over 6 hours per week importing network ads the old fashioned way tell us they can now get the job done in under 6 minutes with EZ-NET. The EZ-NET window contains everything you need to import, process, manage and report on network related spots.

What the network states is what we do, automatically.

Layout

Across the top is the Main Menu. On the left hand side of the window you’ll see a list of network “shows”. When you select a NetworkShow, the right hand side of the screen contains the network “schedules” for that show.

Network Shows

The network shows section contains the list of active NetworkShows that will be processed when clicking on the “Fetch” button (located just below the list of network shows). Each show is named using a short-hand nomenclature to assist in easily identifying where the NetworkShow originates and what Station it belongs to. For example, “P.KXYZ-AM – Yellow Rose News Hour” is the Yellow Rose News Hour NetworkShow from Premiere Network for the KXYZ-AM radio Station. As a side note, we also, by default, create an AvailType that matches this name to assist in the direct placement of these spots on the Log; you just need to include these on your Templates/Formats accordingly. For example, using “Yellow Rose News Hour”, we are bartering 7 minutes per week. The first time we see this NetworkShow (during configuration), you will also need to update your Templates/Formats to specify where this NetworkShow will fall in order to dedicate the 7 minutes per week (according to the agreed upon schedule). After doing this, the spots will fall according to this configured placement so you basically don’t have to worry about the “scheduling” of these each week which further reduces the overall effort involved.
