Lexell Blue, LLC has signed a premier partnership agreement with Deltek, Inc. –the leading global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for government contractors and professional services firms, – to provide data conversion, implementation and project management consulting services to customers implementing Deltek Costpoint.

Lexell Blue, LLC is an experienced provider of enterprise-level data migration, implementation and project management solutions to government contractors throughout the United States. It was founded by four partners, Kelly Nighland, Jami Benson, Susan Pucciano and Kevin Burns. Kelly, Susan and Kevin were previously affiliated with Great Circle Solutions, LLC.

All four partners were former consultants at Deltek for many years where they acquired their expertise implementing Deltek’s industry-leading Government Contracting product suite including: Costpoint, GCS Premier and Time & Expense. This group of consultants has extensive hands-on experience with hundreds of successful Costpoint implementations and data restructures. The team provides an enhanced customer experience using Pervasive’s Data Integrator ETL toolset and is well versed in industry best practices. Lexell Blue is based in the Northern Virginia area and also has offices in Western Maryland and Southern Florida.

Lexell Blue has also signed on to be a Gold Sponsor at Deltek Insight 2013.  The conference, taking place on October 14-17 in Dallas, TX, is designed to educate and inform project-based professionals with hundreds of sessions beneficial to Government Contractors, Professional Services Firms, and other project-focused businesses.  Lexell Blue will be presenting multiple sessions and will be available throughout the conference at its booth in the Insight Expo Hall.  Lexell Blue will also have appointments available to be scheduled for “Meet the Expert” sessions during the conference.

“We are excited to be a Premier Partner with Deltek,” said Jami Benson, partner at Lexell Blue. “This partnership allows Deltek’s clients to leverage our years of experience with the Deltek products to streamline their data conversion and reduce the risk of their overall implementation.  Our value is in our ability to look beyond the current task and ensure the overall path for the implementation is on track.  We assist our customers in avoiding the common pitfalls and help them make informed decisions about their implementation.”

Kelly Nighland, also a partner added, “Our clients need the ability to have a scalable, economical solution for their data migration needs; by collaborating with Deltek, we can offer that value by working directly with the Deltek services and product organizations to assemble the most efficient team.  This is particularly important with GCS Premier Clients making the transition to Costpoint, a best-practice for many growing government contractors that need more advanced capabilities.”

Susan Pucciano, another of the founding partners, commented “This partnership builds upon the strong relationships we have developed over the years with key resources at Deltek and within the Deltek community, and the power that network brings to any implementation.  Our experience, coupled with our expertise with tools such as Pervasive Data Integrator, Deltek’s own integration and ETL tool of choice, allows us to deliver efficient, cost-effective, successful solutions to your project requirements.”

“Deltek’s Premier Partner status is the top classification among our business partners. To be awarded Premier Partner status, partners must demonstrate continued excellence in marketing, selling, implementing, and supporting Deltek solutions,” said Michael DiOrio, VP of Services at Deltek. “The Lexell Blue team is comprised of seasoned veterans that will immediately add value to Costpoint deployments for our customers – and we are thrilled to welcome them to the program.”
