Our company implemented a suite of products including Costpoint and Time and Expense approximately 3 years ago. After seeing applied changes and specific product roadmaps at Deltek Insight 2016, I'm excited about the direction of system improvements and enhancements to functionality and features that are either a reality now or coming in the very near future!

Advice to Others

Make sure that you do an internal assessment of how ready your company is for change as this will facilitate knowing when it's a business process decision versus a system design or configuration topic (consulting hours are precious); dedicate resources for change management, marketing/communication and training and ensure that Executive Management is not only tuned in, but engaged throughout the process.

Our company converted to Deltek Costpoint over a year ago. After using Oracle for 15 years, it was a bit overwhelming. However, it did not take long to get into the swing of things.

System is easy to use, but care needs to be taken that when setting up the system, all steps need to be followed. It allows steps to be input even if they are not according to processes. Training is highly recommended.

Pros

Easy to use. Works well with projects and accounting.

Cons

Easy to break if you aren't careful.

Advice to Others

Spend the time upfront training your staff. It pays off in a big way later.

Having used Costpoint and Time & Expense since 2008, I'm comfortable and confident with the breadth of the tools' functionality, as well as the critically important support provided by Deltek.

Pros

I most appreciate the stability of the processes built into the products.

Cons

As the products have evolved, they've unavoidably become complex, which makes for a large amount of details with which to become familiar.

Advice to Others

Read the application documentation within the tools, and reach out to Deltek support for advice.

We have had some recent not so positive experience with Support - being told for almost everything to apply the latest patches when they can't show us where in the patches it is going to fix our problem is not encouraging. After working through all the Hot Fix applications - we still have the problem - so, being to to apply them did not help. (Just a bit discouraging.)

Pros

We love the Web version and capabilities - looking forward to Extensibility

Cons

Changing support staff, getting someone from the other side of the world and having to wait until the next evening to get a call back.

As a new user to Costpoint, I have been impressed by the depth of the Costpoint product and it's capabilities. We have barely begun to scratch the surface of the capabilities of the product, but it currently handles all of our projects and proposals and is the heartbeat of our business.

Pros

Depth of product
Customer support is great

Cons

Finding where data lives in the database can be tough

Advice to Others

This product can do everything you need it to do and more. In fact if there is a downside it is that ti is too big and too deep for what a company may need.
