VOK DAMS creates more transparency with new agency software

One of the main customer benefits of agile costing in the context of agile event management is the transparency of the changed costs in the course of an agile project. This is ensured by the new VOK DAMS agency software, which supports the agile work of the teams for project management and controlling.

Since no software on the market fulfilled the high and agile requirements of VOK DAMS, the specialist for events and live-marketing, the agency decided after intensive search and practical tests for an individual adaptation of easyJOB by customizing the standard functionality, programming of additional functions for reporting, evaluations and the VOK DAMS QM system.

The agency software easyJOB combines optimal project management with professional agency management and also supports commercial project management - from quotation to invoicing, from hourly recording to contribution margin accounting. This enables a high degree of transparency. Further functions of the new agency software: e-mail integration, document storage, agile time planning using Kanban and resource planning, controlling and reporting. Thus a central solution can be used instead of many isolated solutions as before.

Together with the software manufacturer Because Software, VOK DAMS adapted the software to the requirements of a globally active agile agency. International integration was also important (in addition to the six national offices, VOK DAMS has international branches in the USA, France, the UK, Iberia, China (Beijing and Shanghai), the Czech Republic, Brazil and Dubai). In addition to transparency and international requirements, the security aspect was particularly important, such as the GDPR-compliant use of project, customer and supplier data within the software. A million-dollar investment.

VOK DAMS expects an increase in productivity through the introduction of the software in the order of 25-30%.

Colja Dams, CEO of VOK DAMS worldwide, comments: "Agile event management is the future. A high investment in software and hardware - but above all brainware - is indispensable to ensure long-term success. This concerns the investment in the selection, development and adaptation of the software. We have invested a total of 2,000 person days worldwide for the introduction and roll-out, including training. The project managers, account directors and even the creation are enthusiastic about the great usability and the many possibilities of the application: The VOK DAMS software for the Agile agency".
