One of the most rewarding parts of Deltek Insight is the unveiling of our MVP (Most Valuable Project) Award winners. Each year we look forward to bringing our customers to Insight and recognizing them for their outstanding contributions across the many project-based industries they serve. And while we can't be together at Insight this year, we are just excited to be able to bring Insight to you! So let's kick things off!
The nominations are in; our Deltek expert panel of judges have cast their votes and the results have been tallied. With so many entries, the selection process was not easy, but in the end, only one winner in each category could be selected for their outstanding customer achievement! In front of a record-breaking audience, during today’s General Session, SVP of Customer Care, Brian Daniell, presented the coveted glass trophies (virtually) to our MVP winners!
Each of our seven MVP category winners demonstrated how they improved business processes, drove innovation, or increased profitability for their project-based business using a Deltek solution. While the virtual celebration was a little different (and what isn’t these days?), we couldn’t be more proud of our customers’ accomplishments.
2020 MVP Award Winners
So without further ado, cue the confetti and the virtual high-fives! Here are this year’s Most Valuable Project Award winners:
Small to Medium Business Award
This year’s winner, Intertech Mechanical Services is a full-service mechanical contractor based in Louisville, Kentucky. Intertech Mechanical Services uses Deltek + ComputerEase for all aspects of its accounting, job costing, service management and document management, reducing the administrative hours spent on processing payroll. As a result, Intertech Mechanical Services now has accurate, up-to-date, detailed information that allows this complex organization of 80 employees to streamline their union processes and gather detailed information for all four of its companies while having visibility into jobs along the way.
“The cost saving and time saving capabilities of Deltek + ComputerEase software is amazing. It is extremely user friendly. The ease of obtaining the detailed information you need and in the format you need it is comparable to none. I have no idea why anyone would use any other software. Deltek + ComputerEase is a one stop wonder.”
Management & IT Consulting Award
This year’s winner, Analysys Mason Ltd., is a global consultancy and research firm specializing in telecom, media and technology. With Deltek Vantagepoint, Analysys Mason now has a single accessible system that contains all the information required to run their business. Their cloud implementation ensures its internal IT resources are focused on business improvements versus day-to-day maintenance.
"Vantagepoint ensures that we have a single accessible system that contains all the information required to run our business. There’s one version of the truth, and genuinely joined-up data that is consistent throughout the organization.”
Architecture, Engineering & Construction Award
This year’s winner, Associated Engineering, a Canadian company based in Edmonton, Alberta, offers a broad spectrum of consulting services, including engineering, planning, environmental science, project management and asset management. With Deltek Project Information Management (PIM), Associated Engineering has transformed its project and client information while simultaneously maximizing its value to the company and to project teams. With over 1000 people in 21 offices across Canada, PIM allows Associated’s staff to easily and efficiently access and share client and project information, creating synergies throughout the organization and making AE more competitive in the market.
“Deltek Project Information Management (PIM) is a foundation solution that enabled Associated Engineering to achieve many project information and records management goals. This contemporary solution has enabled us to streamline our professional services delivery processes by providing clear visibility and accessibility to the contacts, organizations, opportunities, proposals and project information that we use to deliver value to our clients. The ability to add bespoke elements to the solution has provided many opportunities for us to modernize and automate operational tasks and processes while providing better visibility and integrity to the current and historical records.”
Marketing Agency Award
This year’s winner, Taft Communications LLC, is a 15-person communications consultancy based in New Jersey that supports clients throughout the U.S. and Europe. By implementing Deltek WorkBook, Taft found a single, integrated software platform that provides effective control and efficient management of projects to help their clients achieve meaningful change in the workplace and the world.
“We selected WorkBook because it was designed for a professional services organization and offered an integrated, cloud-based solution covering five key areas: job management, resource management, CRM, accounting (AP/AR/Invoicing), and financial reporting.”
This year’s winners are Deltek partner, Infotek Consulting LLC. and Red Gate, a certified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) management consulting firm that helps national security-related U.S. federal government agencies reach operational excellence. Working with Infotek, Red Gate implemented Deltek Costpoint to provide an integrated set of applications and to facilitate the automation of the majority of their service delivery and back-office functions in a single unified cloud-based ERP solution.
“It’s an honor to be recognized as an MVP Award-winner along with Red Gate Group. As a Deltek partner, we’re confident that Costpoint was the right choice to support Red Gate’s long-term growth, development and business competitiveness while enabling them to transition to a mid-tier business and meet rigorous compliance requirements.”
Government Contracting Award
This year’s winner, Perspecta Inc., brings a diverse set of capabilities to their U.S. government customers in defense, intelligence, civilian, health care and state and local markets. As a result of a merger that created the fifth largest pure-play government services provider, the company set out on the road to “One Perspecta” by evaluating, consolidating and streamlining their business processes across all functional groups. By implementing Deltek Costpoint as the foundation for its growth and expansion, Perspecta was able to consolidate the company’s financial systems, improving the visibility, availability and accuracy of financial information across the organization.
“Deltek Consulting Services was an invaluable, flexible, responsive partner that worked with us within the ever-changing business environment—including completing the go-live, on time, and entirely remotely, due to COVID-19—to ensure a successful project completion. We look forward to working closely with Deltek on an on-going basis to realize the full potential and benefits of the ERP system.”
This year’s winner is WPP IT. WPP is the largest creative transformation company in the world, and home to many of the industry’s most admired and successful agencies. By implementing Deltek Maconomy in APAC with more than 5,500 users, WPP IT was able to introduce a new global template to help standardize agency tools and processes. WPP stated that they now have more agility, transparency and a better overview of all company business processes and services, which enables them to vastly improve compliance and security, and to run more efficiently now and in the future.
“With Maconomy Core, you can do more!”
