HERNDON, Va. – November 18, 2015 – Deltek, the leading global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for project-based businesses, today announced that Blippar has selected Deltek TrafficLIVE as the agency management software it will use for production and delivery of all projects. Blippar will use TrafficLIVE, the creative industry’s preferred agency management solution, to deliver consistent resource and project management processes that will ease the administrative burden of its creative staff.
Blippar is a new type of company and already a leader in the emerging discipline of Visual Marketing. The firm harnesses image recognition, augmented reality and computer vision technology to bring the physical world to life through smart devices.
To keep up with Blippar’s exciting, fast-developing creative service, Blippar needed the underlying business support of a world-class agency management system to strengthen its project management processes and improve visibility into on-going project work.

Deltek’s intuitive, user-friendly interface will enable studio project managers to schedule projects and resources quickly and efficiently, with full visibility and performance reporting. Creative staff can submit timesheets in a click, and not be hindered by process or administration. Across the entire business, Deltek will provide a robust framework for planning, delivering and reconciling projects, so Blippar can monitor progress and costs through every stage of delivery.
“Leading the pack in terms of creative innovation and technological evolution has always been at the heart of Blippar’s existence and business model. To keep pace with our rapidly expanding service portfolio and client roster, we needed to equip Blippar with an internal system to streamline our operations, provide visibility and ensure our team are accountable for performance. We selected Deltek, since it delivers what we need. Deltek’s TrafficLIVE solution is a powerful integrated project and resource management platform that will unify our internal delivery processes and improve productivity” said Andrew Graham, Chief Operating Officer at Blippar.
