I just spoke with an Ask Jeeves rep and they said that there is no agency account like google's my client center with their program. You would think that this would have been part of the plan since it is so common.
How are others dealing with managing multiple accounts via their new system?

Ask might get to that point eventually setting up an interface in which agencies can use to manage multiple accounts. I think it will depend though on how receptive the general "public" being businesses and agencies take to the new sponsored listing program with Ask. It might have been a 50/50 to do an interface, but I guess they figured they better not jump the gun and spend time and money intergrating something for agencies. It take Google a little while to develop something and who knows they might have already something in the works.
It also goes back to how willing Ask is to work with agencies as well. Being that there is not system in place, it may take some time for the natural relations to develop for them to justify such a move.
As for my own accounts. Not having too much trouble, as I haven't put many clients in the system yet. Still testing basically.

Bulsworth, hi, I'm on the Ask Jeeves client services team, saw your post, and wanted to respond: The new automated system does allow advertisers or agencies to link together an unlimited number of accounts, each with an unlimited number of campaigns. To set this up, go to the “Manage Account Access” page for your account. Then, input the account name (i.e. email address) in the “Give User Access to this Account Address” and choose the access level (Read, Read and Modify, etc.).
