Awesome Product

Pros

The platform is user-friendly and the report system is top-notch. Getting information on a project is easy courtesy of the project command centre.

Cons

They offer little training on how to use the software, they offer customer support only through customer service portal case submission. The backend is not user-friendly

Great ERP software for Accouting Firms

Pros

Maconomy is an excellent ERP with all the modules built right into it. With its latest version, it is very easy for users to do billings and time entry. It also provides users with IT background to do their own extensions and make a modification to different workspace within Maconomy. It also has a built-in General Ledger feature where you can do all your financials from one place. Maconomy utilizes Business Objects as its reporting platform which makes it easier for users to get to the data they want in effieicnt manner.

Cons

Maconomy can be tricky to use sometime. Its a bit tough for the users without training to get used to all the different workspaces, modules and popups.

Great Product & Vendor to work with

Pros

As a back office user and administrator, I like the integrated solution. It means quicker invoicing process and tighter controls.

Cons

The upgrade process is very labor intensive. It does get easier with each upgrade now that we have Super users and better documentation.

Integrated ERP

Pros

Maconomy's best feature is that we have one software for our back office meaning everything happens in real-time. It has proven to be an information powerhouse, giving us access to information that was outside our grasp in our legacy system. Due to Maconomy's core project management focus, we have gained better visibility on contribution margin. This has lead us to new initiatives to optimize leverage on client projects and fine tune realization.

Cons

With a system as customizable as Maconomy, the ideas may be endless but the time you need to devote to testing new upgrades can be taxing. However, Deltek has been great at walking us through new functionality and is always there as a resource to help us through any issues that arise.

A very powerful tool...a must for Government contractors.

Overall it is a great product. I have been a part of the implementation team for two companies and it was night and day once deltek came online. Things I learned: Tips: 1) Run at least a 3 month if not a 6 month parallel with your old system, with your old system generating the live invoices. 2) Work out any bad numbers or problems in your old system, the one you know well, before migrating to the new system 3) Project set is the key. The system is based on how the project is originally set up, so make sure your staff is 100% comfortable in performing the project set up. 4) Have someone on staff who has gone through an implementation before, is very helpful.

Pros

Project detail - The ability to understand the financial picture of your project or company from the highest level down to the charging level.
Government bids - Allows the company to bid on Cost Plus type contracts with the confidence that the cost will be tracked and be reported to the Government's satisfaction.

Cons

It is not a system you can sit down and in a couple of days figure it out intuitively. It is conceptually difficult to understand, if you have never used a system like this one.

deltek time attendance and costpoint

n/a

Pros

both time attendance and costpoint are very user friendly. Extensive training is not needed. Very well built especially for government contracting company

Cons

There are no cons really. I heard that they are costly, but I don't know how much it is exactly since I'm not involved in its procurement.

Great software, easy to use.

Pros

Great user experience. The scalability of this product allows it to perform for any size organization or application.

Cons

Need to streamline screens needed for client invoicing. This process is a bit too involved and would benefit from a few less processes.

Marketer looking for project details in Deltek

Pros

The software seems to be powerful. It combines project accounting, resource management, project management, time/expense management and business development in one product. Deltek is easily accessible in it's web-based format.

Cons

Too many places to look for the information that I need.
Reports generated include far too much irrelevant information.
Not NEAR user-friendly enough for 'general use'.

Great, easy to use software!

The software works well, and if you take advantage of the workshops and learning tools, it can do a myriad of tasking for you, with reporting at your fingertips.

Pros

I love the windows based functionality. The product works well for all company sizes. We use it for government contracting and it is easy to set up and maintain. The support services are very good and the experts typically know their stuff.

Cons

It's expensive, and you pay extra for the top level support. Training does not come with the software package so you have to take their classes (for an additional fee) or hire a consulting team. We went with a consultant. Next time, I'd go with Deltek...

Senior Accountant Likes the Software

It's been a few years since I have used the software but from what I remember it was a great product.

Pros

There are so many different modules that can be set up and all used together to get reporting done accurately. I liked that the employees travel reports could be entered and reviewed. I liked all of the different options for what reports we could run. It has a lot of options you just have to figure out how to use the product to get the most out of it.

Cons

Setting up some of the modules was time consuming and a little difficult. Maybe a better training or a video could be done for hands on help.

Relatively easy to use to get the job done.

I like Deltek and have used it for years now It works well for what it is.

Pros

Great report compatibility. Looks rather self-explanatory making things easy to figure out without a lot of hassle. Really if you know what your doing this is a great system to use.

Cons

Feels a little out of date with the interface, but really its a good system and clean looking. It doesn't have a lot of flash and that's just right.

C-Suite View on State of the Business

Deltek provides a great single source software solution for managing and running a medium to large size professional services firms such as those in the engineering and architectural fields. It is important that the platform be used as closely to "out-of-the-box" as possible. While the system is customizable, it is best to use the configurability capability of the system and avoid significant customization of the product to reduce future pain from updates and system fixes.

Pros

The Deltek Vision platform provides an "One-Source" integrated package for the Executive team to understand the state of the business which combines data from accounting, sales and business development, marketing intelligence, project management, resource planning and HR and staff information and management tools without the need to integrate separate software solutions. The developing mobile platform and apps will further enhance this platform solution.

Cons

Prior to the introduction and development of the iAccess portal, the systems were cumbersome and difficult to use for the user that did not spend a majority of their time in the Deltek Vision Portal. Those challenges are quickly being addressed as iAccess portal is further refined and developed.

My Deltek Review

Pros

I've been using this software for over 11 years for Accounting, Time sheets and Expense Reports. The system is easy to navigate and I only had to walk through the steps one time when showing a newbie how to navigate the system. I give it a thumbs up.

Cons

The only problem that i have discovered is that a few of our employees using the mobile app upload their receipts on their phone. that shows indicates its in the and there might be a glitch in the system that once it shows you have an attachment but when reviewing it i get an error message that there is no attachment to view.

Very user friendly.

Over all I think Deltek is very user friendly and easy to learn.

Pros

When using this software, it is easy to maneuver from one screen to another. You don't have to close out of a section you are working in to go into another section. You can customize the cells to your preferences of entering.

Cons

There are not enough options to create reports and pull certain information. There were better reporting options in Costpoint 6. This makes it more time consuming because you have to use other programs such as Cognos to get all the information that you need to do your job.

My experience with Deltek Vision

I overall enjoy the product, and have enjoyed it for many years now. I do recommend this software for project based industries, but I would like to see some reporting enhancements and more customization features.

Pros

It's a one-stop-shop for project management and HR. There really isn't a need for other software programs, and minimizes the use of Excel. It's so easy to use that it's hard to use, but once you understand it's basic functionality, you pretty much understand the way the software works.

Cons

If there's an option that I want, like adding a new billing status, that is not easy to do. Report writing should be an option all of the time- there are very specific reports that I want and it's not easy to get that-I usually have to pull 3-4 reports, export into Excel and format myself. I don't want to have to active the cloud, learn SQL server/Vision studio and reporting, and upload to be able to get the report that I want. Other than those things, the software is brilliant.

This product has made invoicing and project tracking a breeze!

I enjoy working with this software. It has made a huge impact on efficiency in our office. I have recommended to others and will continue to do so!

Pros

The software is user friendly and reporting is on point. The Project Command Center makes getting information on a project easy.

Cons

We have contracts with multiple tasks. Each task under a contract has to be entered into the system as a project. Which is fine because we need to track each task but it would be nice if we could track the contract as a whole too.
