ePort can electronically accommodate orders, revisions, makegoods, avails, log time reports, and more. Software systems currently in place at both stations (such as One Domain, Wide Orbit and Harris) and agencies (such as Strata, Mediabank and SmartPlus) are now connecting through ePort, and the need for paper, faxes and the endless re-keyingof order data are becoming a thing of the past. The result is greatly improved efficiency, accountability and cost savings for both buyers and sellers alike.
