We needed an advertising solution that was capable of meeting our sophisticated requirements to satisfy those demands and Falk’s AdSolution was the right choice” said Shenda Loughnane, Managing Director of ICAN, a Dublin, Ireland, based interactive agency. “The ability to deliver complex Rich Media campaigns played a big factor in our decision to go with AdSolution and both ICAN and our clients are now reaping the benefits of that decision”.

Baited Hook is an email and SMS marketing agency that builds campaigns for clients including Oracle, Cadbury, The Royal Navy and Mediacom. Director of Baited Hook, Sam Sudderth said “We chose Falk’s MailSolution because they were willing to understand that not all products sold on the internet are the same price. This equates to ROI and pricing structure and Falk help us deliver it for our email clients. Falk listened to what we wanted and provide us with a very efficient and cost-effective solution. The Customer support we receive is outstanding with issues being resolved quickly and effectively and we are very pleased to be using a Falk solution.”

AdSolution has a very competitive pricing structure and Falk provided excellent support services from day one. More than an adserver, Falk is a support team which is extremely pro-active in implementing the best delivery methods with our studio and coders. It’s important to us that all our designers and coders feel that their ad formats will be delivered to all customers and AdSolution’s open XML template structures allow our designers flexibility to continuously innovate and offer Clients the latest creative formats. Further, we work across a diverse region and AdSolution’s geo-targeting also allows us to deliver tailored creative to segmented audiences for clients such as BT NI and Boyle Sports.”
