Central Consulting Group (CCG) and Newforma® Announce Partnership

CCG to Provide Integration Services for Deltek® Vision® and Newforma® Project Center

MINNEAPOLIS, MN and MANCHESTER, NH--(Marketwire - May 15, 2008) - Central Consulting Group, a Premier Deltek Business Partner, and Newforma Inc., a software company addressing the project information management (PIM) needs of the design and building industry, today announced that they have entered into a partnership to address the integration of Vision, Deltek's project-based financial management solution, with the project delivery capabilities of Newforma Project Center software. As a result of the agreement, CCG will be engaged by Newforma to support Newforma Project Center customers seeking to implement advanced workflow integration with Deltek Vision. In addition, Central Consulting Group and Newforma will engage in joint marketing programs to CCG and Newforma customers. CCG and Newforma will be available to discuss and present integration capabilities at Deltek Insight '08, the annual Deltek (NASDAQ: PROJ) user conference to be held May 19-22 in Nashville, Tenn.

The CCG and Newforma partnership is the third part of a three-part initiative by Newforma to support tighter integration with Deltek Vision. "Newforma has been diligently focused on responding to our customers' requests for enhanced Vision support, resulting in our previously announced ISV Partner relationship with Deltek as well as the delivery of significantly enhanced integration capabilities with Vision in our recently-released Fifth Edition of Newforma Project Center," said Newforma Chief Executive Officer Ian Howell. "Our new relationship with CCG, a very experienced and well-respected Deltek partner, will ensure that we have gone the extra mile to help our customers reap the significant benefits of integrating business processes managed in Vision with project delivery processes managed by Newforma Project Center."

"The powerful combination of Newforma Project Center and Deltek Vision offers architectural and engineering firms the unified view of project performance that they have long been seeking," said Central Consulting Group Partner Jim Falkanger. "A successful integration of business solutions, however, demands a thorough understanding of the project processes affected, an in-depth knowledge of the technologies involved, and a careful attention to the details of how they all interact. CCG looks forward to applying our 20 years of AEC consulting experience to the challenge of helping the growing number of joint Newforma and Deltek customers achieve this goal."
