Creative Performance Inc. earns Workamajig® Expert Status
Portland, OR, May 2, 2011 — Creative Performance Inc. (CPI), a national leader in financial and operational consulting for advertising agencies, has earned Workamajig® expert status. Becoming a Workamajig® expert requires a replete understanding of the platform (Client Services, Project Management, Trafficking, CRM and Finance modules) and the rollout of the solution for a minimum of three agency clientele.
“We are extremely pleased”, states Vanessa Edwards, President and Founder of CPI. “My journey with Workamajig® began nearly five years ago, when I was searching for a solution to help improve my own agency’s realization rates, drive efficiency and improve profitability. Post-adoption, our AGI went from 75% to 200% of the national average… providing us the retained earnings necessary to undergo explosive growth, leading to our eventual acquisition in 2010.” Today, CPI is taking those experiences and leveraging them on behalf of agency principals across the country.
