Multiple Agencies Within Ireland’s Publicis Network Select Deltek’s Cloud ERP Solution to Improve Profitability

London, 10 June 2013 – Deltek, Inc., the leading global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for professional services firms, today announced that four agencies of the Publicis Group network in Ireland; Publicis D, Publicis Dublin, Pembroke, and Ignite, have chosen Deltek’s cloud ERP solution, Deltek First Maconomy Essentials. The Publicis agencies will use Deltek’s project-centric cloud ERP solution to improve visibility and enhance their overall business performance and profitability.

The four agencies are part of the Publicis Group Ireland and offer a range of marketing and PR services. As autonomous members of the same network, the agencies decided it was time to move away from running their businesses using siloed Excel spreadsheets that scattered information across the organisation. Knowing the strength and reputation of Deltek’s industry-specific capabilities, the agencies selected the Maconomy solution because it is tailor-made for agencies and now available in the cloud. All the functionality that the four agencies need is already pre-configured in the cloud solution so they can concentrate on training their employees on the new solution and leave the implementation and future upgrades to Deltek.

All four agencies within the group have experienced significant growth in recent years. With Deltek First, the Publicis agencies have a fully integrated ERP solution that will enable them to win more new business, grow their profitability and accurately forecast future financials. Instead of having different, non-integrated systems to manage key operations such as management accounting and project planning, these agencies now have one, integrated solution that allows each agency the flexibility to use the exact functionalities that match their specific business needs. Deltek First is a web-based solution and will deliver the agencies a single source of the truth when managing their business and forecasting future growth.

“We were looking for an integrated solution that could fit the needs of our agencies without us having to do customisations or go through a full ERP implementation. With Deltek’s list of references and many years servicing the agency sector it really was not a hard decision for us to select the Deltek First Maconomy Essentials solution delivered through the cloud. We are certain that we will now be able to better manage our entire project lifecycle while also getting the flexibility each of us needs, all within the same solution. What we particularly like about Deltek First is the fact that it combines project planning with finance accounting and Performance Management Reporting dashboards in one integrated multi-dimensional solution,” said Gerard Keating, Finance Director, Publicis Ireland.

“We are very proud that four agencies from the Publicis Group Ireland network have decided to use our cloud solution and the solution offers the flexibility these agencies need to manage their differing business models. Our many years of experience in the professional services industry give us unique expertise in the agency sector. We are proud to now offer our Maconomy solution through the cloud so agencies of any size can access proven, best practice capabilities for financial management and project control at a low cost. Publicis D, Publicis Dublin, Pembroke, and Ignite will get a complete, integrated solution on a secure platform to enhance their business performance and support their future growth,” said Neil Davidson, Managing Director, Deltek UK.
