If your marketing people WANT to use the acronym, for example if they intend to register it as a trademark and want it to be the way everyone refers to the product, then I would suggest doing your title in two lines, something like this:

First line: MAS (in really big letters)
Next line: My Awesome Software (in much smaller letters)

After that, you can refer to the product only as "MAS."

It's usually a big branding mistake to use abbreviations as product names, but if that's what your marketing people have decided, it's on their heads, not yours. So make them happy

Thank you for your response! That was my thought but I'm receiving push
back on first including "MAS" in parentheses.

The reasoning I was given was that it wasn't visually appealing and
unecessary since the abbreviation would be used on the same flyer.
