NEW YORK, NY / TORONTO, ON—FOR RELEASE SEPTEMBER 18, 2018 
 
 
PromoSuite and SoCast Partner for New Integration of Promotions Management System with Web and Mobile Apps

 

PromoSuite and SoCast are excited to announce a new integration that drastically improves the speed and accuracy of website and app updates for on-air contesting, contest rules, storm closing information, and event listings. With this new integration, information entered into PromoSuite Next -- PromoSuite’s cloud-based promotions management system -- is instantly and automatically updated on radio station websites and apps within SoCast’s digital platform.

“Our mission at SoCast is to make every aspect if digital easy and profitable for radio broadcasters,” said Elliott Hurst, CEO of SoCast. “PromoSuite is the leader in radio promotions tools, and we’re excited about bringing the integration of our web and mobile platforms to their widely used promotions management system. We feel a natural camaraderie with Rocco and his team and look forward to future technical integrations and new developments down the road.”

“Promotions Directors are among the most overworked people in radio,” noted Rocco Macri, CEO of PromoSuite. “As a former Marketing Director myself, I know that the to-do list is never-ending and things like updating digital content can often get pushed to the side. SoCast understands what radio needs and their digital platforms are built specifically for radio, making them the perfect partner for PromoSuite. Now, with this advanced integration of our two systems, station staff can enter content in just one place—PromoSuite Next—and have it automatically updated on two additional digital platforms—web and mobile!”

This new integration is live now on SoCast’s platform and free for any radio stations using both PromoSuite Next and SoCast. For more information about setting up this integration or signing up for either system, contact Rachel Field from PromoSuite at 212-509-1200 x205 / Rachel@PromoSuite.com, or Eric Eisen from SoCast at 416-635-6678 x223 / Eric@SoCastDigital.com.

PromoSuite Gets a Little More Technical

Matt Jacobson Promoted to Product Development Manager

Peter Elia, PromoSuite Director of Technology PromoSuite announced today that it has promoted Director of Programming Peter Elia to the newly created position of Director of Technology. Concurrently, PromoSuite has promoted Operations Manager Matt Jacobson to Product Development Manager.

In his new role, Elia will oversee both the Product Development and Programming teams, tasked with the ongoing development of the PromoSuite product line, including PromoSuite Next, ListenerEmail and WebCreator. Jacobson will oversee feature development and integration with compatible products.

Elia joined PromoSuite in 2009 after an illustrious career in both the radio and technology industries. His radio experience includes Production Manager of Online Services at Clear Channel/New York.

His technology experience includes stints as a Sr. Project Manager at CinciMedia, System Architect at Lincoln Electric and Manager/System Design & Development at AIG.

"I couldn't be happier to continue creeping up the ladder here at PromoSuite," said Elia while uncannily walking the line between sincerity and sarcasm. "[PromoSuite CTO] Chris Bungo, my rock, continues to be an absolute inspiration, and [CEO] Rocco Macri should have had his face printed on some sort of currency by now. If I do my job right I suppose we will be 'printing currency' soon anyway, so look for the Macri $50 bill by end of Q4 2016."

Matt Jacobson, Product Development Manager Jacobson, a graduate of The University at Buffalo and recently a new Dad, joined PromoSuite in March, 2006. His experience includes stops in the Online, Print and Video worlds, with a specific concentration in new and emerging media.

As Product Development Manager, his new duties include advancing the feature set and efficiencies within PromoSuite's product line; as a new Dad, it will likely involve changing as many diapers as possible.

"Peter [Elia] and I have worked very closely on the Product Team for several years now," said Jacobson, with a glint in his eye as if remembering the good ol' days. "I'm looking forward to spending even more time with him, as we continue to improve and develop PromoSuite's systems."
