Creative Collaboration for Your Agency's Remote Workforce

Posted by Deltek on April 15, 2020

Remote working is a consistent part of agency life. After all, putting together the best team for a job often requires capitalising on freelance talent and working with colleagues scattered all over the world. And now with more agencies realising the benefits of virtual work to leverage top talent and reduce turnover, it has become more important than ever to have the right tools in place to keep employees connected and communication flowing so that there’s no disruption in productivity.

Deltek Agency Solutions make it easier for teams to work remotely by facilitating collaboration and centralising all your agency activities into one place, with global accessibility from the Cloud.

Conversations

WorkBook conversations reduce your team’s reliance on emails or chat tools by allowing teams to socialise, collaborate and discuss project details within the same central place, regardless of their location.

  • Open conversations can be used to communicate agency-wide, conversations within a job help teams collaborate on the task at hand, and one-on-one conversations allow colleagues to chat privately. Users get a notification in their Inbox, accessible via desktop and mobile, to alert them of conversation activity that requires their attention.  
  • Use conversations to send files for reference, review or approval. WorkBook files them within the job and stores them to your local file server or cloud storage to avoid duplication.

Client Portal

Reduce the barriers to client communication via WorkBook’s Client Portal.

  • Clients and Brand Managers can easily submit new jobs for quotation – giving your team visibility into incoming work. 
  • Personalised access to job progress gives clients the transparency they want and the visibility they need to understand the impact of unexpected requests.
  • Maintain a collaborative relationship and a steady line of communication by including them in job conversations.
