Brands React to Prodigy at ANA Production Management Meeting
Updated: Mar 28
The story of Prodigy's pandemic product launch case study debuted at the Association of National Advertisers (ANA) Financial Management Committee meeting on September 15, 2020. Debra Hedgecock, Vice President of Agency Operations for Worldwide Marketing at Mastercard and John Lipuma, CEO of Prodigy by PostAds Group co-presented "Creating a Cloud-based AI solution for Production Data Collection, Spend and Reporting" that featured the transition of Mastercard's production data previously living in email, Excel and Google docs to a centralized platform for remote workers with no client-side data entry required.
Using AI technology for automated ingest of production project data, Mastercard was able to implement Prodigy with no business disruptions or SaaS/Dam user trainings - just a simple accessing of all the production data and reporting in a visually appealing dashboard with thumbnails for each project.
The meeting also featured a live demonstration of the Prodigy interface and word has spread quickly - the company has since been busy with a virtual roadshow to rave reviews:

Especially timely given the pandemic and its altering of production shoots, having the ability to collect and analyze production cost data has never been more important. The innovation of Prodigy's SaaMS (Software as a Managed Service) solution ensures the end of painfully assembling spreadsheets with top-line only information weeks after that information is strategically useful. As brands and agencies rethink their production processes for the coming year, the industry is ushering in a new era of budgeting that demands a production business operation utilizing best-in-class technology in real-time. "All of your production data, none of the data entry" is now a reality that continues to generate excitement and delight in the marketplace.
