Overall Satisfaction with Deltek TrafficLIVE

TrafficLIVE was used across the business from the very start of the process chain - quotation to invoice and everything in between.
It allowed us as a design agency to have full visibility of operations, thus leaving the 'creatives' to be creative and the finance guys to count the pennies in realtime.

No system is perfect but TrafficLIVE came pretty close to solving our problems all in one central place in the cloud 24 x 7.
We decided to change our process to suit the way TrafficLIVE works to capture all costs, time and resourcing for each project which increased the speed of billing and invoicing.

With all the data in one place it made it easier to create reports in real time with data we could trust and challenge instead of plucking figures out of the sky.
  • Being able to schedule in real-time in many different ways is a massive benefit as projects change. Giving users the ability to move their individual workloads around helps them organise their day in a more realistic fashion.
  • Having the ability to allocate resource in a variety of ways and reflect this in capacity reports makes it easier to constantly evaluate and instantly change employees availability to suit the needs of the business.
  • Flexibility of how you want to start a Project by translating a quote from a job and vice versa with adding tasks on the fly makes it easy to adapt to changing deadlines.
  • It negates the need to use paper PO books as all POs are kept within the wrapper of a project, along with expenses so they can be tracked and reclaimed on the fly saving time and your cash flow.
  • Within the administration set up it needs clearer definition as to the type of user account - maybe a warning or prompt to tell you the additional charge if you switch more features on when setting users up or reusing accounts when employees leave.
  • I'd like to see other options and price points available when selecting what each user should have available to them.
  • Visibility of staff utilisation.
  • Faster invoicing for account managers and invoicing to clients.
  • Improved collaboration across departments and teams with little effect on the people who need to be creative.
  • Having the ability to run any kind of operational report - ultimately it's the estimated versus actuals which is what the finance guys love.
We had tried developing our own Filemaker based system and customising a large print procurement based system - in terms of functionality and development they failed to be successful coupled with ever increasing unsustainable capex.
TrafficLive has no physical infrastructure requirements and all that goes with maintaining hardware on business premise, it's cloud based and compliant with DAR.

Updates are continuous throughout the year and you can have a say on future feature requests.
The other systems couldn't compete on the features and overall cost of implementation and delivery.
Ask yourself what problems are you trying to resolve and what added value will adopting TrafficLIVE bring to your organisation?
