Beat the Five Biggest Agency Challenges with Deltek Agency Solutions

Posted by Regan Riddoch on June 28, 2019

Agency

Agencies and in-house marketing teams face a lot of the same daily challenges. And although many agencies attempt to overcome these challenges by employing a software solution, that approach can get out of hand quickly when your tech stack suddenly includes a different tool for every problem.

Agencies without a fully integrated end-to-end project and resource management solution struggle to manage over-servicing, control costs and employee burnout before it’s too late. And those that still use email or physical job jackets to manage the Review and Approval (R&A) process are plagued by unnecessary rework, risks to deadlines, and client frustration that only serve to exacerbate the aforementioned challenges.

Enter Deltek Agency Solutions

By integrating ConceptShare’s online proofing capabilities with WorkBook’s front-end PSA or full suite ERP solution, agencies and in-house teams alike can now benefit from one powerful tool that provides better control, insight and visibility into agency operations, so their teams can deliver more creative content on time and on budget.

With Deltek Agency Solutions, your agency can overcome the biggest challenges agencies face today.

  • Build stronger relationships with your current clients by showing them you value their time and their input with tools that make it easier for them to participate in the process

Challenge 2: Managing over-servicing and scope creep

  • Avoid over-servicing and scope creep by building accurate estimates based on historical agency performance
  • Reduce R&A bottlenecks by keeping the review team aligned on what needs their attention and when with reviewer dashboards and deadline reminders

Challenge 3: Resource planning and balancing workload

  • Improve utilization and achieve better workload balance with greater visibility into resource availability and capacity

Challenge 4: Managing profitability and controlling costs

  • Streamline the month-end closing process to recoup valuable time
