    What I like about this product is that is very good when managing long projects. The follow up is easy and Reports are easy to analyze.

    Cons

    No cons. Maybe at the begging it is not so easy to use. You may need to look for some tutorials. For the rest very good tool

    As a GovCon system's consultant, I've used/fixed/implemented/transitioned from this system numerous times. It was the accounting solution I recommended to all of my clients looking to be DCAA Compliant. I am sad it's no longer being sold/offered from Deltek.

    Pros

    I loved most things about this system. It was incredibly simple to implement. The interface was simplified so it became very easy to train new users. Projects and the JSR reports delivered enough information to manage programs/contracts. If setup correctly, it was the ultimate in getting your GovCon accounting system approved by the DCAA.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the support for this product is supposedly going away. They're moving everyone to a lite/compartmentalized à la carte version of Costpoint now. This system was expensive but affordable in the sense that your average clerk/bookkeeper could be taught how to use it. Costpoint isn't for the faint at heart! :)

    This software is truly an asset to any company who is willing to put the time, money and resources (human) behind utilizing it to its fullest potential. If you are not ready to completely switch over to this program (leave all other software behind), then do not make the jump!

    Pros

    If everyone is one board to learn this program, you are in for a real treat.

    Cons

    Very hard to become proficient at unless you read all online, free resources, and then pay a lot of money to learn the next layer of information at workshops, followed by paying more money for the private consultation to answer follow-up, in-depth questions pertaining to your firms' standard practice.

    Deltek First is a great idea and platform whose time has come.

    Pros

    Reduced IT overhead cost and up to date patches.

    Cons

    You have no direct access to the raw data so interfaces for third party feeds are nixed.

    Our organization purchased Open Plan and COBRA over 8 years ago. However, we didn't really know much about either application before doing so. The Deltek consultants were very helpful in helping us get each one set up and ready for use. The problem was we didn't start using them on a regular basis or commit resources to them full time, so our knowledge base and expertise didn't evolve. Open Plan proved to be more robust than we needed at the time and we stopped using it. COBRA is used for only specific projects, mainly EVM related, and has provided us some nice benefits. But we still don't have a good handle on all of the functionality, which is holding us back a little. My suggestion is to invest time and resources to these products to get a better ROI.

    Pros

    Cobra reports are created as Excel files.
    Easy budget re-calculation, budget import.

    Cons

    The integration wizard is a little quirky.

    Cobra is a good earned value system. Great for meeting the government reporting requirements and for managing cost/schedule on projects.

    Pros

    Easy to use, V8 looks like MS products latest versions, multiple ways a user can get to what they need. Excellent tool for earned value management.

    Cons

    Not a lot, upgrades sometimes create new issues and have to wait for a patch/fix to come out.

    I have been using open plan for about four years and PMC and Acumen more recently. I like how all of these tools (including Cobra) work with each and have found them to be user friendly.

    Pros

    Accuracy and integration with Cobra to calculate EV.

    Cons

    Unforgiving at times - greater use of undo function would be nice.

    Pros

    The updates get implemented automatically without the need to upgrade on-site servers, and the customer service is always very prompt.

    Cons

    Most times you have to start with the lowest level of help desk before getting bumped up to someone that actually knows what they are doing. It would be nice to have 1 or even a few experts that were assigned to you so you could build a relationship and skip on some of the frustration of having a novice send you something they copied and pasted out of a manual.
