Spreadsheets have traditionally been used by marketing teams and ad agencies to track approvals, manage resources and timelines, allocate tasks and more. But recently the demands on marketing teams and agencies have increased and the needs of their clients have changed, so the tools traditionally used are not longer suitable for managing creative projects.

Unfortunately, spreadsheet programs like Excel or Google Sheets lack the flexibility to manage project resources in the modern world. As the industry has evolved, creative teams have found they are managing increased volumes of clients, projects and up-to-date information and  spreadsheets are no longer able to keep up.  They quickly become inaccurate, inefficient, and ineffective. That's where marketing project management software comes in.
