Silversoft is pleased to announce that Hoorah Digital has chosen Deltek WorkBook, a Best of Suite agency software that has allowed the team to streamline their systems and processes.

About Hoorah
Hoorah Digital is a 360 degree digital consultancy with offices in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban offering a variety of services in digital marketing, people-based marketing, in-bound marketing, consulting, technology as well as media services ranging from design, consulting, execution and production.

With a growing team, Hoorah needed a two prong solution; one that was able to link together the 4 key pillars of their business – consulting, insights, media and production – into one tool thereby, allowing for the entire team to work together; as well as a tool that integrated with finance.

When asked about what features of WorkBook excited her most, Tasmin Kingma, COO at Hoorah mentioned that the ability to log almost everything was very important in their decision to purchase. She mentions that from a profitability perspective, WorkBook will allow for greater visibility into resource capacity, as well as actual billable time spent on jobs. Within a growing company, this really helps.

In addition to WorkBook, the Hoorah team will be moving over to Deltek ConceptShare – an online proofing software that fully integrates with WorkBook – and will eliminate time wasted on emailing reverts to clients. Ms Kingma believes this will save massive amounts of time for everyone involved – especially their production clients.
