Who is Customware
“A partner you can count on.”
Over 15 years ago we received a call from one of our clients with a request for help. They needed a solution that would allow them to manage the placement of Advertising within all of their member and non-member newspapers. We reviewed their needs and requirements and not long after, Ad-Vantage was created.
Fast forward to today and now Ad-Vantage has become a complete ad placement system that continues to meet the needs of the Ad Placement industry. Ad-Vantage continues to grow and provide new technology for the Industry now and into the future.
But the development, installation and support of Ad-Vantage is just a piece of the bigger picture here at Customware. Our primary goal is to provide business solutions that will help bring efficiency and productivity to businesses.
