  • Alan Cherney: Programmer Artiste

    To Alan Cherney, programming is an art and he happily bears the title of artist.  Programming satisfies his creative urge because, as he says, "you're building something and it involves design and structure."  Alan has always been interested in art and computer graphics, and throughout high school he built a portfolio intending to apply to art school.  When he began using his computer graphics in simple web programming, he found he had a real knack in that area and changed his focus to computer science, with emphasis on art and design.  During his last several years in high school and all through college, Alan was able to earn money and gain experience doing freelance computer graphics. Alan became an intern at ACS while still attending the …

  • Promotions Management Re-Designed in 2011R1

    For many of you, the letters CPNPMO, when put in that order, conjure up thoughts of vast amounts of detailed information about promotions, views full of item information and pricing, and perhaps some questions about how it all is organized.  Well, I have some good news ? these issues have been addressed in a re-design of the campaign and promotion setup workspace.  In fact, the re-design is so intuitive, we barely need these words to describe it! For starters, the data has been grouped more clearly by type of promotion, so that all costs for e-promotions are near one another, for example.  Also, the workspace uses script technology, where you can customize the way the workspace appears for users establishing different kinds of promotions and campaigns.  Why force a user to …



  • ARP 310 and Last Bill Date

    When ARP310 runs, it updates the last billing date (ARPPDH.LST-BIL) and effort# (ARPDH.LST-INVS) of the invoice being billed. The ARP310 select sets can then be based on the current effort number of the customer's invoice and when it was last billed. However, there are times when the ARPPDH.LST-BIL is not set during a billing run, even though the effort number may be incremented. When the ARP310 select set is set up, you have the option of incrementing the effort number and sending a notice to the customer. When you increment the effort number, after the billing run, the ARPPDH.LST-INVS field will reflect this. For an invoice that has never been billed, the effort number would change from blank to 1. For an invoice that has been sent effort # 1, …

  • Keeping Up With Upgrades

    In 2007, when I returned to ACS after pursuing graduate studies, the iPhone was a relatively new phenomenon and the iPad was little more than an idea on a drawing board.  Amazon also had yet to release the Kindle.  Now, all these products are central tools exploited by many publishers.  In less than four years, the worlds of publishing and marketing have undergone significant changes.  Publishers have increasingly been looking at how best to digitize their content, and then monetize that digital content.  They have re-oriented their marketing to reach consumers via new electronic means.  At the same time, in this world of digitization, some publishers have been successful at increasing print circulation, often through the use of innovative marketing to a core demographic …



  • All About Standing Order

    Say you have a line of products that focus on strength training.  Some of your customers are fanatics on this subject, and they want whatever you publish – "just send me all your new stuff on strength training," they say.  What do you do?  Well, you can tell them to watch your web-site for new products.  You could put them on a product update LST list.  Or you could make a note about it and put it in a folder.   (Hmmmm, where did I put that folder??) We've got the answer:  use Advantage's Standing Order module.  The Standing Order module allows you to track these types of requests and generate orders as soon as a new product becomes available. Standing Order also supports a customer's involvement with a content stream that is updated periodically.  It allows them to pay …



  • Daryl Vautour: Keep Calm and Carry On

      Not much ruffles Daryl Vautour.  His easy-going nature and sense of humor help him to be successful in the highly dynamic world of client support.  Support center manager EvActon describes him this way:  "Daryl is an incredible ‘can do, will do' guy!  He helps everyone everywhere whenever he can.  You don't even have to ask him. He's just the best." In his five years at ACS, Daryl has worked on documentation, served in the support center, performed on-site support and in his current assignment on the project team, helped manage upgrade and implementation projects. Although he enjoyed working in support, Daryl likes the experience of working with clients face-to-face.  And they like working with him as well. After some months of providing telephone support to …
