DELTEK ACQUIRES CONCEPTSHARE TO DELIVER MORE POWERFUL SOLUTIONS TO THE CREATIVE INDUSTRY

Deltek continues to accelerate its momentum in the creative industry by adding ConceptShare to its agency management solutions, giving creative agencies more tools to deliver content faster, with higher quality, and at a lower cost

HERNDON, Va. – June 7, 2018 – Deltek, the leading global provider of enterprise software and solutions for project-based organizations, announced today that it has acquired ConceptShare—a Creative Operations Management platform that streamlines the online proofing, review and approval processes of marketing and creative work for agencies and in-house creative teams.

Based in Ottawa, Canada, ConceptShare currently works with customers ranging in size from large companies with in-house creative teams, to agencies that offer full-service creative solutions for their clients. ConceptShare software gives agencies one tool and one process for all their projects, to get clear and actionable feedback on content, instead of relying on inefficient fragmented manual processes.

With the acquisition of ConceptShare, Deltek adds to its market-leading agency solutions and now offers tools that give its customers:
Visibility into the state and status of creative work inproduction– Project Managers can easily see the status of every asset and review metrics to identify bottlenecks in the production process, so they can make better decisions faster and keep stakeholders updated.
Online proofing and workflow automation for all creative projects– The solution makes it easy to mark up, comment and approve content faster. Reviewers get visibility of what they need to review and by when. Automated reminders let reviewers know when reviews are due and when new versions are available.
Faster review and approval of creative projects – Creative teams get centralized feedback from both internal and external reviewers. They can reply to mark-ups and comments and use feedback flags to separate general comments from those that require action.

“ConceptShare is excited to announce we have joined the Deltek family,” said Nish Patel, CEO at ConceptShare. “Our organization delivers a powerful tool for agencies and combined with Deltek’s industry knowledge and portfolio of products, we will help marketing teams and creative firms around the globe accelerate and improve business processes. ConceptShare is proud to be joining a market-leader like Deltek.”

“As a customer-centric organization, we continually strive to deliver more value to our customers. When we saw ConceptShare, we knew its complementary capabilities would strengthen Deltek’s solutions – which are already trusted by creative agencies around the world,” said Mike Corkery, President and CEO of Deltek. “Both Deltek and ConceptShare have collaborative, customer-focused work environments that will integrate well. We welcome ConceptShare’s customers and employees to Deltek and we are excited to further strengthen our best-in-class solutions.”

Deltek will offer ConceptShare as a stand-alone solution and will also be integrating ConceptShare into WorkBook by Deltek. To learn more about ConceptShare and to see the solution, visit the website here.
