Having seen success using Futuri’s all-in-one podcasting, logger, and audio management system, POST, across its stations, SummitMedia decided to expand the partnership to add:
- TopLine, the sales intelligence system that pairs AI with expert human analysis to advance every stage of the sales process and grow local direct revenue.
