Pros

The comprehensive functionality potential and ability to interface with relevant apps. The software offers several features to not only to publish a magazine but to also run your business-just as the name indicates! The CRM allows each member of your team to automate their tasks and then collaborate with each other to increase efficiencies. The system sets and monitors goals and targets and provides status reports with automatic updates. One great feature is the billing and fulfillment. This feature is fully customizable and offers automatic workflow, so once you set it up, your work is essentially done with invoicing. Overall, this is a great software tool to help run a successful magazine business.

Cons

Not all of the potential features are fully functional at this point, and when there is an issue, reaching tech support can be delayed, which creates downtime and frustration for users. Also getting some of the features fully functional has taken more time than expected. However, overall we have been very satisfied with the program.

For us it is one of the best "CRM" software for publishing but it´s much more than this.

Pros

We really like the automatic process from creating an proposal till sending reminders for missing ads. This helps us to optimize the whole sales and production process.

Cons

Mobile usage is not really good. The Flatplan could be more flexible and the look & feel could be a bit more modern.

I love how easily I can visualize my magazine before production using RunMags software.

Pros

They continue to help it work for us and it does help streamline our otherwise rudimentary editorial system. The program really does create ease in production mode, and in the case of strange errors with the software, the team is fast to help.

Cons

There are some little flaws, but the team always addresses them directly. There have also been some updates so I'm finding the page to look a bit different when I log on.

Response from RunMags

Thank you for your feedback Cara! Yeah, we're developing RunMags with such speed that we've been struggling to keep up some of the little flaws you mention. We're seeing the light in the end of the tunnel :-)

As a small magazine company, Runmags has taken me from pen and paper and Excel spreadsheets to a more automated system. Allowing me to quickly see where I am within all areas of my business.
Within a few months I have been able to scale up by offering more publications. I love that I am able to create flat plans for layouts, which makes production faster. I can automatically create and email contracts and invoices, send out reminders for artwork.
I can also see who my sales reps will be meeting and when as well as the outcomes and they no longer need to ask me about contracts, invoices or if an ad is in as they can find out for themselves within Runmags.
Runmags has been a game changer for my business. There is a slight learning curve as with everything, but I was given a complete walk through. If there are any hiccups the team is on it right away as if they are part of my team.
Thanks Runmags
