Webinar: How to establish an agency’s success |The Drum, Deltek and Radley Yeldar

It’s a strange time to be entering adland; with the industry constantly transforming and restructuring to meet consumer demands. But it’s becoming increasingly difficult to ensure an agency’s success in this period of change and instability. Or, so it seems anyway.

The Drum has teamed up with Deltek, to host a webinar that discusses what a successful agency looks like today, citing purpose, creativity and profitability as some of the key drivers behind adding value to a business.

While brilliant campaigns and creative ideas are an effective currency, they can’t be activated in isolation. Establishing the above key factors with brilliant creativity will elevate an agency further and help to make them stand out from the crowd.

Speakers on the webinar include representatives from creative consultancy firm Radley Yeldar, who will share their company’s journey of harnessing technology to drive innovation. Other conversation points will centre on the importance of cultivating a balance between creativity and transparency to ensure results can be met and understood meaningfully.

The session will take place on November 21st at 11am GMT (13th Hrs South Africa), register your interest here to avoid disappointment.

Top 5 Reasons Your Firm Needs eMail & Document Information Management

Project Information Management. Access critical firm-wide and document information in one central location

It’s a competitive world out there and whether you’re a lawyer, architect, engineer or contractor, the need to organize your emails and documents is critical. Organized information saves you time, and saving time saves money.

 

1. Are your emails overflowing?

People spend nearly 2-3 hours a day on email-related activities, consuming 20-30% of their business day. Firms with document information management systems spend minutes, not hours, with email.

2. Can you find your firms critical documents?

6 in 10 firms rely on network folders to manage projects, but face inconsistent file structures, accidental deletion, drag-and-drop displacement hindering productivity and negatively impacting utilization. Firms can proactively manage documents through the entire legal lifecycle instead of waiting until the matter is complete to start organizing files.

 3. How quickly can you find critical documents?

Firms can spend hours, if not days, tracking down critical project information, wasting valuable resources and critical project time. With project information management, firms can find drawings or documents completed yesterday, last week or last year in a matter of minutes.

 

4. Do your teams struggle to share & manage files internally & externally?

Only 9% of firms have a single enterprise-wide collaboration system. Yet, 75% believe sharing documents is the most important way to improve collaboration. 

 

 5. Is your firm’s information a liability or an asset?

The average cost of a single misplaced file is more than R1000. Think of that times the number of files in just a single project. An effective document management strategy could reduce cost by 30% and lower risk by 23%.
