Excited that Deltek Vision has been constantly adapting for the future. Excited for the changes to come.

Pros

Allows flexibility to tailor products to our needs. Vision offers a slew of products and capabilities to meet demands for professional service companies.

Cons

It can be difficult to define all that our product needs. Adoption of people to use the technology.

Advice to Others

Talk to someone that can walk you through all the things you want from the product. It can consolidate a lot of processes but requires the right training and investment of time.

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.

End user experience suffers if you over-engineer your product

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.

We upgraded from Harper Shuman and then to Advantage in 2007. We've loved it since the beginning and wished we had more time to sit back and think about utilizing new features.

Pros

Intuitive; easy to teach to new staff

Cons

Support is sometimes difficult

Advice to Others

Definitely worth pursuing.

N/A

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.

After using Bill Quick for two years at the A/E firm where I was newly employed, I researched other software for A/E firms (I was in a role where I could make this decision to upgrade) and was drawn to Deltek. I felt they had the best product in the marketplace and pushed hard for the implementation of Vision despite the cost. After months of anticipation, I finally got approval to move forward with my decision and in 2010 we rolled out Vision for our accounting and H/R functions and have been quite pleased with it. After 6 years of Vision the firm has grown and we are now looking into adding the Project Planning module. My experience with Deltek Vision has been very good overall, however, I would like to request they keep their cost more competitive.

Pros

Easy to use, encompasses all aspects of an A/E firm

Cons

Can be very Expensive for smaller firms

Advice to Others

Deltek Vision is a very robust software application, you will get the biggest bang for your buck with Vision, however, it can be pricey for a firm that is on a budget.

Deltek Vision's product allows us to work and manage products at a global capacity by using the CRM, Resource Planning, and iAccess features. We are able to put the best resources on our projects and coordinate regardless of the resource or location of the project.

Pros

The ability of accessing the tracking and performance of projects with the integration of accounting and resource planning.

Cons

Hard to think of, but there are a few changes to iAccess upgrades that takes away the search ability with project names/numbers. That's my only complaint.

Advice to Others

Learn all of the features and train your staff to have more use and participation in using them.
