DRMP, Inc is a Civil Engineering firm with 350+ employees. It has been using Vision since 10 years ago and before that it used Advantage. The following modules have been implemented:
- Vision Core
- Vision CRM
- Vision Payroll
- Deltek Talent Acquisition
And we're in the process of implementing Asset Management and Deltek Talent Performance

Vision is used as our ERP system company wide.

Pros

- Very customizable. As it uses SQL as the backend database, custom store procedures can be created to automate company processes.
- Very powerful software that can meet a lot of the company's needs.
- The use of workflows is something else that is very beneficial because it allows to automate task.

Cons

- The security portion is cumbersome and sometimes not very flexible.
- Training is very expensive

Pros

The value for us is the information that is available. We have been using Vision for over 10 years and the future changes will make it so much more user friendly for PM's and occasional users.

Cons

PM's have been slow to adopt due to the perception that is not user friendly, with the addition of iAccess this has been eliminated.

Deltek Vision has the capabilities to be a great accounting and project management software. I came into a company that had used Vision for a few years before I arrived and I wish that there would have been someone more knowledgeable with the software or that there was resource materials handy in order to learn the system. Hopefully the new Learning Zone will take care of that concern. Once the program is set up specifically for your company and it's needs it's easy to navigate and use.

Pros

With Vision you only need one software program to run your entire company from project management to payroll it's an all-in-one solution.

Cons

The ease of learning and the customization is difficult.

Advice to Others

Make sure you take advantage of any training and have a good idea of what you want out of the software so they can help you customize right from the beginning.

I have been working with Vision since I started at my firm and have worked my way up to Functional Database Manager for the firm. I have enjoyed learning the ins and outs of how to modify and customize the database to fit our needs. It has been wonderful to know that we have the support of Deltek to find what we need to help us find a fix to our problems that come up now and then.

Advice to Others

Garbage in, garbage out. Be confident that you want the fields that you add and that they provide a purpose. Set up consistency for your data standards.

At first this software was a little challenging to wrap my head around but once I made the connection between what I needed and what it could do for me I ran with it. I spent every day learning everything I could about Vision and utilized it to it's full capacity to help my team and the Project Managers with their projects.
I can honestly say Vision has been a great product to use for Billings, Project Management and overall project performance. I especially enjoy the reporting side to Vision.

Pros

There are a lot issues we are having with Vision that customer care couldn't help with currently.

Cons

Vision is a great product to use.

Advice to Others

Reach out to others that are currently using the product to make sure this software is a great fit for your company.

I have been using Vision since 2005. It has helped my organization streamline many operations and also gives information to project managers real time. Tracks the the entire project life cycle.

Pros

It is project based and information is available real time for project managers. It is also flexible and allows for API and web services. It starts from the beginning of a project life cycle (tracking leads and potential customers to winning the project and closing the project.

Cons

pricy

Advice to Others

Consider the pricing and licensing fee. Annual maintenance fee can be pricey. Also, any customization you do is subject to changes during upgrades.

I really like the ease of functionality within vision for billing, reporting, A/P, A/R, etc. Most features are easy to use and figure out.

Pros

It feels very intuitive and has depth (lots of different options)

Cons

Limits - I spend a lot of time trying to get vision to do something just to figure out it can't or not set up to do so.

When I started at me new job (9 years ago) they told me their software was Deltek Vision. I hadn't used it before. I sat with my supervisor and she trained me on it. Naturally I was lost at first, but left alone with Vision I explored and so many things it was capable of. And new it would take a long long time to actually understand all that it offered. I do enjoy working on it. The Planning module is difficult, nut you only understand it you use it regularly and pay attention. It requires lots of focus!
We have had problems or questions and have had to contact customer service, which has not helped us. We've used our own IT department to resolve problems or just find work a rounds.

Pros

Ease of use for Accounts Payable

Cons

Planning is very confusing

Advice to Others

It's a good product, but plan on spending lots of time learning it.
