TANC directly represents college media with national brands attempting to reach the college audience. Beyond providing the ad management platform for scheduling and uploading banner advertising campaigns, TANC is able to leverage the inventory on individual newspaper websites and mobile applications by grouping them together in a network buy. This ability places a higher premium and allows for more revenues for both the newspaper and The Access Networksm. The same services can be provide to any other publishers or brands in need of a trafficking solution.
TANC resources can be tasked with populating content for CGP in specific locations to enhance the value of the applications licensed to brands and publications. This service, in addition to data entry of this content, is available upon request for nominal fees.
The Access Network is a software provider to publishers and brands. The needs of each client are unique and the TANC development team is equipped to address the specific needs of clients with regards to consumer based UI or new feature and functionalities.
Custom development on all products, extensions or developer tools is done with measurable outcomes that need to be well defined by the client. TANC will work intimately with clients through design and development to deliver exactly what is required.
As a component to all products and development extensions, TANC customer support is critical to the success of the tools provided. 24 hour support is provided for all CORE products for critical functions of the software.
TANC subscribes to the philosophy that the work put into a system is directly proportionate to the results and performance of a product – so it is the goal that each and every client has not only been instructed in the best practices of the solutions they use, but also have resources available at any time to resolve questions or problems. Training is paramount to the licenses TANC provides.
As an added benefit of using TANC products and services, clients are offered the unique ability to take advantage of the network of publishers, brands and institutions that are also utilizing our solutions. Many of our clients have similar operations with even more similar costs. TANC aims to cut those costs by offering Network Perks, the ability to leverage the power of the group to drive down prices on operational costs by purchasing in bulk.

CMN plug-ins are optional services.
