Pros: after three years of set up we can run some very useful reports

Cons: too many options that need to be configured, very cumbersome to use.

Overall: This software tries to be too many things to too many people.
As a result it is difficult to use, and takes more time to deal with than it should.
We have had Vision for three years now and are still setting it up after paying your consultants a lot of money to set it up. Super furstrating

Recommendations to other buyers: make it more user friendly and take out some of the less important factors, let people pay to upgrade if they need some unique function.

Pros: Custom configuration capability is awesome. You don't have to be a programmer to learn how to set it up. Searching and reporting tools are second to none.

Cons: Sometimes the great amount of capability can be intimidating to customers. That is why I always recommend training for a successful implementation.

Overall: I have been using Deltek Vision for over 10 years and have seen many clients benefit greatly from its capabilities and features.

Recommendations to other buyers: Give it a try and start with your largest priorities first. Talk to Deltek Vision customers to learn their success stories. Join a Deltek CRM User group to learn best practices.

Recommendations to other buyers: Give more webinars on all other features of the program.

Comments: The company I work for uses Deltek Vision for timesheets, expense reports, projects, pdf versions of company services. My experience with those listed above has been mostly positive. I love the feature with expense reports of scanning the receipt and downloading it directly to the line item. An issue I've had is when I have taken my work laptop home to complete my timesheet. I am not able to scroll down to enter "comments" for each project task. My company likes to see this comment section so I am frustrated that it doesn't work.

Pros: everything is integrated: project, accounting, marketing, leads, conferences

Cons: different elements can be very, very technical

Overall: this begins our 4th year of Vision use after a conversion from QuickBooks. there is no other software I'm aware of that has the project reporting capabilities that Vision does; sometimes it's a little overwhelming. It would be nice if some of the "standard' reports would be created a little different to become another standard report. On the minus side, our Project Managers have complained that you have to put the same information in too many places; that it would be nice if the same info flowed into all the other of Vision.

Pros: that employees can enter in their own time and expenses

Cons: the modules do not coincide with one another you have to search each area to run reports

Overall: I guess my main concern with the ease of use is due to the search applications. It is difficult to find information and run reports for individual employees, also it seems that the system skips employee numbers and does not go in chronological order

I love Vision!

Pros: Love the pay when pay function, it works great.

Cons: Running reports can be a bit tricking, you need to massage the data to get what you want.

Overall: All you need is some basic training of Vision and you can do just about anything. I've worked in CostPoint before as well and the training on that was horrible, but moving from CostPoint to Vision was super easy. If you have the right trainers when implementing, you will have no problems.

Recommendations to other buyers: use iAccess, it's a great tool for the project manager's.

Pros: It has powerful features - the connection between financial data and project planning is a real plus.

Cons: Lack of flexibility and inter-connectivity is a constant frustration.

Overall: Connecting CRM functions to MS Outlook is a continuous and long-term weakness (for over 10 years). Project planning connectivity to MS project is also very spotty - works sometimes, most of the time - it does not work. Reporting has always been a problem - not enough flexibility. Same for search capability - often fields are not available that are needed for proper selection of records. All of these issues have been raised many time via cases over the years - they never seem to get fixed.

Recommendations to other buyers: No

Pros: Tracking projects

Cons: Not intuitive when it comes to customizing and running reports. Too many sub areas and can be hard to find the right thing.

Overall: Some of the areas are easy to use but some stuff is hard to find and add. It would be better to have simple terms and explanations in order to add information or search boxes, we have trouble sometimes configuring reports. The layout seems simple but it is actually kind of confusing. I would like to be able to change things and have more control to manipulate and still be able to run the reports under my projects. We are working and figuring it out as we go but still having trouble figuring out how to populate the information we are looking for because it is what we think it is. Also, sometimes it is hard to add in things because it is hard to figure out what sub area that item would be in. Overall I just feel the product could be a little more user friendly for running reports and customizing things. We are trying to incorporate Vision more this year to get the rest of our team on board so I hope to learn more as we go, but I still find that ultimately it takes a lot of time to figure some of the things out just because it isn't really intuitive at all. I think vision should go around and meet with those using the product to see what more they could change to make it more user friendly. It is hard to explain over a written review. I will say however, that the program does work great for tracking projects invoices and such so overall on that part I am satisfied.

Pros: The familiarity of the program. I have been using it for years now.

Cons: I have smaller clients and it is overkill for what they need plus it is so expensive for small offices.

Overall: I am an outside consultant and used Deltek Advantage for years. Have used Vision at different clients now for about 8 years and also used Axium Ajera a few years ago. I love some things about Ajera and some of Deltek. I think one of the biggest helps has been being able to close the Bank Reconcilation in Vision.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make it less expensive without all the bells and whistles for smaller firms.

Pros: It is comprehensive and the features are useful for managing almost all aspects of a business.

Cons: It is not always clear how to get the information I need out of it. The support site helps, but it is still not always clear and simple.

Overall: I switched from Deltek Advantage a few years ago and have found it to be fairly easy to use for my purposes. However, Vision is a tool with a lot of features and I know it has potential that I have no idea how to tap into. Would be nice if there was a more straightforward way to maximize it for our business.

Recommendations to other buyers: For small businesses, this program might be overkill. There's a lot of features that we simply can't figure out how to incorporate into our 10 person firm.

Comments: Vision is very cumbersome for the accounting of a company. AP/GL/PR take a lot of steps to get something accomplished. There isn't an ease is correcting an error or changing an account number.

Overall: I've used Deltek Vision at a few companies over the past 10 years or so. While powerful, it is not user-friendly and is not easily customizable. From what I understand, it is extremely expensive to purchase and implement, so firms likely make a huge financial investment, get stuck with the product, and live with it as is because they can't afford to move to another platform. Seems like a business model ripe for disruption.

Pros: OK project reporting and tracking

Cons: Complexity of configuration options that are not presented well in "the manual" (on line only and if you want it on paper, even after having purchased the product, you have to PAY extra for it!) and very little "conceptual based" information. The "User Guidance" seems geared to a non-professional managing this software as evidenced by the "how to click click" mentality in instructions. Also, getting past the front line Help People (who are great) to a higher level to discuss concerns is IMPOSSIBLE. And the "Customer Care" system - re-designed and implemented since 2003) is a step backward in "Care" to my view. Also, the company does not send out "Known Bugs" as they are discovered, rendering re-work at so many levels it should be of concern to the company yet there is a stated policy of NOT releasing them to PAID FOR users.

Overall: As a skilled user of many software products, getting an overview of the Configuration and it's effect on each module is very difficult and thus hard to seamlessly change once set. The product seems designed to promote consulting fee generation by Deltek, and when one can't CALL a 1-800 number and get support WITHOUT opening a "Case" (and being charged for same or having to fight to not be charged) it speaks volumes about the company's priorities. The company also seems more concerned about fancy reporting than improving existing BOOKEEEPING needs in the product. I no longer recommend this product to others.

Recommendations to other buyers: Look elsewhere or keep it simple.

Pros: Powerful reporting and a mostly, all-in-one solution for managing our firm and projects

Cons: Usability. The lack of a user to be able to sit down with the product and pull the data they want without significant training. Data reported is calculated differently in part of the software - revenue in one area is actual billed amount while revenue in another is hours worked times billing rates.

Overall: I've been the Vision champion in our organization since 2008 when we began to use it. Vision has been steadily improving over the past 10 years and also been getting left behind in innovation. Over our time with Vision we've evaluated other software at a few points and have not found a single solution that can provide a similar integrated experienced. The power of Vision and the reporting is built on Microsoft's SQL engine, but it does require users to be invested in learning it's use to get the most out of it. Without proper time devotion, training, and some trial and error it does leave users frustrated.

Along with the power of the product comes a lot of over-complication and reported amounts that often aren't as expected or isn't fully explained or clear on where the data is coming from and what it means. This is probably the primary problem with Vision in my eyes - data labeled in one area of the program isn't the same as data reported under the same or very similar label in another part of the program.

The end user experiences and ease of use is greatly lacking, but should be vastly improved as Vision is (finally) becoming modern and migrating from a .NET platform to a HTML/web-based platform. This upgrade shows promise of having better end user use and intuitiveness. We are hopeful that Vision will continue to be a tool for our company for many more years.

Recommendations to other buyers: Invest the time and outside help needed to properly setup the software and train your staff. Get management buy-in to reinforce frequent use then it becomes a very power, useful too.

Pros: Powerful software with the ability to track a great deal of operational data/information in one location.

Cons: lack of intuitive user interface

Overall: My accounting staff likes the software but they work in it every day. For those who use the software less frequently it is very cumbersome and is not intuitive. The user interface is horrible for those who don't work in the software every day.

Customer support is through third-party contracts and Deltek provides little in enabling those relationships. Except for software updates, support is poor and we are on our own to figure it out.

Comments: The software is written a certain way and can only be updated to include "enhancement requests" when and if the company feels like it. These "enhancement requests" are necessary to run reports efficiently. Like having cash collected sorted by project manager is considered an "enhancement request." Seriously?! Why wasn't this written in the code in the beginning?!

Pros: The various types of reports that we can print out.

Cons: The cost of the software program. Although it is a very good program, it may not be suitable for all companies if they cannot afford it.

Overall: I have limited use of the software as I am the Executive Assistant & HR Rep. My CFO uses this a lot more thoroughly. What I have used, I have found to be very useful, functional and easy to print out specific reports as needed. I have called Customer Support a few times and they are very knowledgeable and walked me through step by step any issues I was having. That's a plus for me.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you do have the software program at your company, make sure to download the app for it. It has helped us tremendously, where employees can have access to their account while they are out of the office or on-the-go during the weekend.

Pros: the ease of taking our labor tracking from timesheet to billings. Also like the easy to get reports.

Cons: We have occasional issues with the invoice template being a bit too standard and hard to adjust for specific billing situations.

Overall: Have been using Deltek software for our A/E firms accounting functions since the 90's. It has always done a great job and the Vision software has made our accounting work so much easier. The timesheet program is a great interface and tracks all our projects status.

Pros: It is intuitive and versatile and could be used to meet our customers needs.

Cons: Compared to BST which I have to use now I love everything about Vision. When I had not experienced the contrast I would say there were some fields that you typed in that you had to expand to use and that was a nuisance. Or that in interactive billing there is a lot of gray space that I would rather see my data in. However, I had ever used BST before I would have be thrilled to open the screen to change the notes instead of 5 components to do one invoice.

Overall: I used Vision from July 2007 thru the present, my company was bought out last fall and we are forced to switch to BST as our accounting system. Vision is infinitely superior to BST. BST is an abomination it takes twice as long AT LEAST to do anything. I wish we could continue to use vision. It was more flexible, intuitive and efficient.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are choosing between vision and BST choose Vision a thousand times over.

Pros: Lots of features, quite stable. Patches released consistently, new major versions every year or two.

Cons: Dependency on IE and Microsoft dotnet

Overall: We migrated to Vision about 8 years ago. It's been stable and done what was required. There is so much in it we don't actually use. Quite powerful software.
Only downside has been the requirement to run / launch from Windows Internet Explorer, but this has partially been alleviated with the cross browser Navigator/iAccess product.

Overall: I have been a Deltek user for 25 years and have gone through many software changes from CFMS to Advantage to Deltek. Your team is very good with upgrades and now that we are in the Cloud, even better. We utilize your Knowledge base before we place a call for Chat. Your team members are very good at following up to make sure our question / concern was addressed. If I could add one thing to my wish list it would be a fully integrated HRMS module. Deltek's flexibility has enabled me to create my own, but a fully functioning module would be tremendous benefit for me.

Recommendations to other buyers: Very user friendly.

Comments: I started with Advantage in 1997, when it was offered by Harper & Shuman and loved it. Since it was taken over by Deltek, it has become overly complicated for a small firm; it seems geared more toward larger firms. Some of the processes have lost their original functionality when they were adapted to larger firms with complicated needs. An example of a simple function that disappeared when we went from Advantage to Vision is the capability of printing a check in AP Disbursements. This is only one of the "wish list" requests that I have made over the years that was never addressed. We small firms don't seem to get the respect we deserve.

Pros: Integregrates the engineers project management with accounting reporting.

Cons: Payroll tax/End of Year Tax Reporting is lacking.

Overall: Vision has good features and is lacking in some features. Vision used to be able to alphabetize A/R Statements when we initially started using it. Through upgrades, Vision lost that feature that we found valuable for our billing process. Vision is lacking in end of year reporting functionality. For example, end of year 1099 functionality is lacking. States require the account id assigned to companies to be reported on 1099s. Vision is currently unable to print accurate paper copies nor is it able to provide an accurate electronic file. Customer support was not able to help me and I had to manually edit the electronic file in order to have a 1099-MISC that would pass our state's criteria. Vision does not provide reporting for form 1099-INT which I need for reporting interest on shareholder payouts. Financial reporting is lacking some. Balance Sheets typically have Assets on page 1 and Liabilities and Equity on page 2. I have not found a way to easily achieve this with settings in Vision. I have employees that would like to be able to review their payroll withholdings and paystubs at any given time, but are not able to do that. At times, Vision is disappointing for the Accounting department. At other times, it is a rock star for us.

Recommendations to other buyers: No.

Overall: I love the Deltek Vision product, I just wish there was a dedicated person that could walk through every aspect with you. There are a lot of facets that I have to feel my way through and this creates a lack of confidence. Even when we get the help, I feel as if they are so well versed it is not always communicated in laymen's terms for the everyday person. Maybe having a person who is dedicated to helping a company through their process.

Recommendations to other buyers: Sort of pricy but all the people behind the scenes have to be paid, so understood.

Pros: Reliability

Cons: It is getting clunky. Advantage, the predecessor to Vision, was easier to operate than Vision is. The customer service has also went down hill.

Overall: Customer service used to be wonderful, but now, they want everything web based, so don't even try calling the 800 number. The web based portal takes ages to get a response: just upgrade your case immediately, or you are going to be waiting days for an answer. The software is getting too big to be useful for any one segment of the company, and requires a good deal more work than is necessary. There is a lot of duplicate entering needed.

They do have a few support staff who have been there forever. Those people are worth their weight in gold, Judy Hart, for instance. Yes. I know. This is a review, I shouldn't name names. But she is darn good, and patient, and gets you the correct answer. Maybe they'll give her a raise for this.

Once you figure out how to get the information needed out of the software, it is reliable.

Here is a for instance: in the Info Center, I can enter a budget in the project info center. Then, I can reenter a budget in the planning info center. Then, I can reenter a budget in the accounting. It would be nice if it was just something that would flow through.

I have been doing accounting with Deltek for 14 years now: I have begun the search for a replacement software.

Recommendations to other buyers: It might be great for a company that has the resources to hire one person for each accounting function, say, one for AR, one for AP, one for budgeting, etc. If you only have a few people trying to run this software, it is about useless other than to do some basic accounting tracking. Don't bother buying the add ons like planning. They require another person.

Pros: The A/R transaction entry, the advanced search in reporting, timesheet processes.

Cons: The project reporting list of fields not in alphabetical order when you are trying to create a report. I know you can sort but it would take that step away if it was automatic. The search for an invoice number under Accounting/Accounts Receivable/Invoice Review.

Overall: Overall, Vision is good. One feature I do not care for is the reporting and the fields are not in alphabetical order. I love the advanced search feature in reporting. I love the A/R transaction input experience where you just pull the invoice and it puts everything in. That is outstanding. Timesheets is another great feature of Deltek. One thing I feel needs to improve is the A/R search under the Accounting Tab/Accounts Receivable/Invoice Review, if you don't know the invoice number and search by client, it pulls all projects for that client. It should only pull those projects with outstanding A/R. I don't care for the customer service thru the help. Calling was much better.

Never in our conversations about the module was it brought up that part of that technology was being wrapped into core vision. That would have been nice to know.

Comments: I started working for an Artichtect Firm that uses this software. I is very different from QB or Netsuite. We paid for training and they have good chat support. It is not very user friendly but it does the work for the firm. Takes some work to get the reports to work they way you want it. But since I was so used to QB and then had to lean this one I was able to work it and understand it . I suggest if you use this to get an experience person to set it up and train - that would be money well spent

Pros: The user experience. The ability to customize the interface. The ability to quickly drill down into reports.

Cons: It is such a rich,deep product that some of its functionality remains unused.

Overall: In 2004, the professional services firm I worked for was managing a $10M/year business using Quickbooks. It was clunky and problematic, with no real analytic capability (i.e., where and how were we making money). I investigated various solutions, and discovered Deltek Vision. We hired an outside consultant to install and configure Vision for us,and life changed. We suddenly had a true business management solution. As the CFO, I finally had a tool that could give me true insight into the underpinning of our business,and where were profitable (and where we were not).

Two years later, at a architectural firm, I inherited Axiom Protrax, practically a DOS-based solution. I quickly tired of operating with a 20-year old platform, and advocated for Vision. Having experienced one implementation,I was not enthused with dropping $60K for an outside party to tell me what to do to configure the system. So, over three months,I single-handedly configured and implemented Vision at a 50-person architectural firm. And it has made all the difference. Vision has continued to grow, through internal development and outside acqusition, and through it all they have maintained a consistent look and feel to the product. Adding functionality without detracting from the user experience. And their customer support has remained top-notch. I love the quick chat. If I just have a quick question, I can go quick chat, and quickly resolve my issues.

I love this produce, and it meets the needs of my business.

Recommendations to other buyers: This is a great solution for professional service firms, though be sure folks get the training they need to fully utilize all of its functions.

Comments: Deltek gives companies a brand new toolbox that allows them to move forward through innovation and automation. The potential is almost limitless for firms with an open-minded approach to organizational transformation. The support during the sales cycle and through the implementation process has been a pleasant surprise. We have been thrilled both by the functionality we're currently utilizing (which has been very basic to start), and by the opportunities we see to further develop.

We've slowly gained by-in from our staff and stakeholders through patient demonstration of value month by month. We are most excited by the journey Vision is embarking on next. Access across devices through apps and widgets is an absolute necessity for the future.

Thanks, Deltek for your dedication to development.

Comments: The controller left December 31st. The company went live February 1st. I began February 6th and I had never seen Deltek Vision before that day. Deltek Vision is a powerful, project management software which can help you have almost real-time visibility into all aspects of your business. Hi, my name is Kathy Nixon and I am a CPA, a PMP, and a professional coach. Post-acquisition mergers of systems, processes, and teams is my niche.
This assignment had me serving as interim corporate controller of a $130M+ Revenue company who was merging its three companies currently on Quickbooks all into one system, Deltek Vision.

Greatest take-aways:
1. Designate a Subject Matter Expert. It can be a Deltek Vision consultant or a third-party consultant with heavy Deltek Vision experience.
2. Develop a Steering Committee across all company disciplines and meet weekly. Decision making and joint buy-in is important.
3. Communicate, Communicate, Communicate. Communication to all areas of your organization is imperative to the success of the implementation.
4. Train, review, test, train some more. It takes a village to raise this child.
5. Designate or hire a project manager. For success, you need someone focused on all areas of this software's implementation. Setup, testing of setup, training, input, verify input accuracy, invoicing, collections, accounting and financial reporting.
6. Expect 6 months (to a year) before everyone is onboard.
7. Develop a budget which includes 5 times the software's cost. Yes, five times. It is a pay me now or pay to correct it later proposition.

Good luck! Wishing you success. Let me know how I can help.

Pros: So far what I like about viewing the product for the conversion is the capabilities to track multiple companies as well as using multi-currency.

Cons: I haven't had any personal Cons as of yet, but have been told to be careful with the HR portion of the software.

Overall: We are converting to Vision to move our company back to a Batch based system that will make it easier for the accounting department to control posting periods. We have 500+ employees and our current software does not handle the volume well. Vision is considered the "Cadillac" product in our Industry and has been used by some of our upper management in prior roles. We are looking forward to the possibilities

Overall: 5 years on Vision, accounting & payroll modules.
We are moving to outsourced payroll. We have found the payroll module to be cumbersome and not as well supported as the rest of Vision. Simple problems that seem like easy fixes (ex. W-2 forms not lining up for preprinted forms), are not addressed. There seems little interest or support from Deltek, and it would be so nice to be able to have under one umbrella, but as employee reporting requirements (ACA) are increasing, we weren't comfortable to continue with the Payroll module as it exists.

Comments: I have been the controller of an approaching 50 person environmental engineering firm for almost 2 years. While unfamiliar with Deltek when I first joined the company, I have found it easy to work with and powerful if utilized properly. I was hired to help the company begin utilizing the software better. In the last 1 1/2 years, we have moved to the cloud, set up credit card reconciliations, set up batch invoicing, set up benefit hour tracking, started attaching documents to all A/P vouchers and doing the bank reconciliations in Deltek. Currently we are implementing project planning. We are now having fewer problems with time sheet submission and are collecting our accounts receivable faster due to better reporting and faster invoicing. A win-win for everyone.

Pros: Ability to add other modules as needed

Cons: Some areas are not very user friendly

Overall: Our firm has used Deltek for many years now. It is a very valuable resource tool. We use it as our primary project management software and it has worked well for us. There are some areas that are not as user friendly and it can take quite a bit of effort to figure it out but once you understand how the system works, the possibilities are endless.

Recommendations to other buyers: Take advantage of the training prior to using it on your own

Comments: We use Vision to do all types of stuff -- track our projects, track our fees, do our timesheets, etc -- and having everything all in one central place is a lifesaver.
