Pros: It is the central collection site for financial and some HR related data. It has the functionality to allow users to access it remotely via VPN and mobile phone applications.

Cons: It seems to take much manipulation on the back side to be able to generate necessary data in the way we want to see it. We employ an extremely bright database manager to be able to use the system in the most suitable way possible.

Overall: Collection of necessary business data

I love Deltek!! I use it daily. Best part if you need to make changes you can adjust to what you nee

Cons: This software has a weak approval process. I need more controls in place to really speed up my workflow.

Been on Vision for over 10 years, future upgrades should make it more user friendly for PM's.

Pros: Deltek is great for tracking projects and running reports as well as entering time and expense reports. You can put a lot of information in and adjust reports to only contain the information that you want.

Cons: It can be hard to adjust and understand what areas and how to change them in project detail and other areas so that you can control your reports. Not very intuitive and can take trial and error to get reports just right sometimes. Lots of areas that cannot be changed or deleted and swapped out for something else or so it seems.

Overall: Tracking and running reports

Pros: We use Vision for CRM and Proposals-Custom Proposals and Government forms. I love the connectivity between your firms, contacts with your opportunities and jobs. Using Vision enables us to store and retrieve our corporate history and the story of us...our projects, our people and our client relationships. I confess I am a power-user and have done most of the configuration to the system, so therefore understand it more than most others, but I can provide data of any kind from our system. We are integrated with a different accounting platform, so I can also provide up-to-date project reporting. We also use an intranet connector that makes our information easily obtainable/viewable through PC and mobile app (not the Deltek mobile app). I have used the Deltek Vision product since 2005 and had prior Deltek products since the late 1990's. Dewberry is a 2,000 person firm with 50 office locations in 18 states.

Cons: Although I live and breathe Deltek Vision, numerous people at our firm just can't grasp the details and complain that it is not user friendly. The learning curve seems slow for some people to overcome, actually many people, but once it's figured out, there seems to be high value in their usage. I like the custom reporting tool but my users find it so difficult that most refuse to use it. I think the most successful firms will have a Vision expert and a strong IT (SQL, reports) and application team on staff. If not, you probably would need a consultant. My team has been able to keep everything in house to date.

Great product, customizable and great support

Pros: The customer support at Deltek is great, they are always available to help you out with questions you may have wither technically or application use. Vision is also customizable, they have a talented staff that is able to help customize the software to your business's needs. Standard out of box features are easy to use and the company is always looking for input from customers to improve it's use.

Cons: It get a little bit more on the cumbersome side to use if your a larger company, although I feel like this might in part be due to our customization of the software as well. As mentioned in my Pros, Deltek's support staff is always helpful in any situation so with their help we can usually work through any issues that occur.

Overall: Centralized Project based accounting and reporting.

Deltek Vision has everything an A&E firm needs to run its daily business. From project planning on.

Pros: Everything that you need is in one software program. You can plan a new project, see which employees are available to sssign tasks to, and run payroll all with out leaving the software. Reports, including custom reporting, is quick and as easy as selecting what you want the report to show and hitting preview. From there you can print or save as either a PDF or as an excel spreadsheet which makes the reports even more versatile. With the addition of iAccess it's helping the 'away-from-the-office' employees be able to check time sheets and project info from anywhere.

Cons: The learning curve for implementing features not previously used is a little steep. There's not a lot of "free" tutorials for setting up features to begin with, although you can find quite a bit of information about using features once you have them set up correctly.

Awesome Product that has grown with our business from 150 users to 500 and counting

Pros: I like that it is SQL driven and is web based so I can manage it from anywhere. This is a complete accounting solution for multi-company firms. We enjoy real time data reporting and they provide a user dashboard for easy access to all its info centers

Cons: Like most great application it is not cheap, but this is offset by constant updates and new feature releases

Overall: There are many, but the main one is a one stop shop for our clients, contacts, opportunities, accounting and last but not least project management and all of this is in real time. thanks Deltek

Pros: Has all the information we need between timesheet, expenses, and all forms to fill out for every aspect between insurances, 401k, etc.

Cons: Wish I was able to access from my cell phone. I am only able to access from my desktop computer and laptop. If I could do it from my cell phone that would make it more accessible for everyone no matter where they are working at between office and field work.

Fairly straightforward, adjustments need to be made to display so that all boxes can be displayed.

Pros: User interface is intuitive. Easy to use after the learning curve. Attaching the same picture to all receipts is a lifesaver when submitting expense reports.

Cons: Difficult to access on Apple products or through most ISPs except explorer/edge. I'm sure there is a reason but the lack of platforms to access Vision is agonizing. Also, hard to adjust sizing of individual input boxes, therefore you must scroll left to right instead of seeing all the boxes on the same page.

I use this software primarily to enter my time in each week.

Pros: That it is fairly easy to use when entering timesheet and expense statement data. I like that the project number/task data pops up when only one part of it is entered. I like that credit card data shows up in expense statements and you can just click and add the item to the statement.

Cons: Often I have difficulty searching the project folders and contents, such as the Company Libraries folders.

Pros: Ability to report out data and create customizable reports and methods of reviewing and previewing that data. Useful for forecasting and reviewing upcoming projects.

Cons: Not user friendly or intuitive. Field names and connections to other fields are not readily apparent. Takes years to become fluent in the program.

Overall: Vision has the ability to track time and expenses and prepare project plans and report out that information in infinite detail. Benefits to your firm can be vast from timesheets, to project plans to CRM data and coordination.
However its unlimited potential also leads to a lack of intuitive processes for the casual user. Lots of training time is required for high performance users to be able to track and understand the data and reporting and connection. Can require significant time to accurately input and adjust details as project fees and schedules change.

I really do like the connectivity of the information from our first customer visit to project completion. I also like the mobile feature. I often as a Marketing Executive find myself on the road. With the ease of the mobile app; I can input contact/client data on the go.

Comments: Just feels like an app developed from the late 90s/mid 2000s. Lots of things need advancement: Windows Client only contribution through .NET Framework, value history is very limited to certain select fields, API is ancient (still using SOAP instead of REST) and poorly documented, mobile interface lacks functionality.

If you are going to use for very specific scenarios it seems reasonably functional.

Beyond the app itself, support feels inadequate, 4 hour design meeting just to have a simple question about the API answered.

Worked with a ton of different apps and this is by far the most difficult to get educated and up to speed on.

Pros: Configurable, fully integrated ERP, project based,

Cons: Being a cloud based customer, the delay in which the Cloud Operations team responds to issues and how they communicate.

Overall: Vision is an amazing tool that allows end users the ability to configure and customize the program to their needs. There are some limitations with what the SAAS / Cloud Option can do and definite delays with needing things done with when working with the Cloud Ops Team, however normal Customer Support is amazing. Definitely spend the money in consulting and developing the program prior to deployment, will save the organization money in the long run and make end users happy.

Pros: timesheets organized

Cons: confusing to use anything else

Overall: the overall software is confusing...mainly because I've never been trained and not sure of it's capabilities. no time to train at work....need some outreach or easy videos. I'm interested in how I can plot time and resources, maybe a gantt chart or deduct some workers from overall job costs bec. it isn't relevant....as a timesheet entry software it is great, otherwise.....it's confusing.

Recommendations to other buyers: have more training and outreach

Overall: I find Deltek Vision to be incredible un-intuitive and clunky to use. It has taken me 8 months with the help of in-office hired training for our team to comprehend the basics of how to use Deltek Vision for marketing and business development purposes. I used to use Cosential which was very easy to pick up and design and manage. The reporting feature is the worst I have ever used. Even th databases I designed with File Maker Pro in 2001 were easier to use.

Overall: We are very pleased to move Deltek Vision from local server to the Cloud.
We have multiple sister companies using Deltek Vision Cloud. It is the best accounting software for our engineering company. We do recommended to all architecture and engineering company.

Recommendations to other buyers: Do not set up the software if you are don't have prior experience and know how to set it up and customize it based on your company structure and needs.

Pros: all in one, no real need for anything else

Cons: sometimes using online version can run slow and you have to replace certain links. as well as the temp docs can eat up space

Overall: Once the software is learned it is invaluable. its basically a one stop shop. Your business can run a million times smoother knowing Vision is being used in all aspects to help you keep on top of things.

Recommendations to other buyers: make sure you have enough space on computer for temp files

Cons: Can't find user groups or formal training in the area.

Overall: I have had no training in the software and have trouble finding or creating reports I need. There are no basic training courses in our area and I don't have time to read the entire help section.

Deltek needs to offer more basic training courses, even if it is online courses. It would be nice to have some formal basic training or user groups in Nashville.

Pros: Reliable for accounting and basic functions

Cons: Not user-friendly and requires a consultant to get into more complex areas unless you have someone on staff that has sufficient experience.

Overall: The following is my opinion and I am not speaking on behalf of my company as most of my years with Deltek were before I joined Rockwell:

I have used Deltek for over 12 years and my experiences vary by the module. Newer modules such as project planning or online T&E are notorious for being excessively buggy. For many years my company avoided project planning based on reputation alone. The latest version of the planning module also was introduced with a serious lack of error prevention and trapping - such as allowing project plans to be edited in resource planning while the user is in the plan. Although some bugs are unavoidable, they are excessive and notorious in Vision which is frustrating to the user.

The help documentation is serious lacking in explanative detail and the search feature is abysmal - the results are often totally unrelated to what your search phrase is - and often it locks up before you get there. It is a shame because I think there are good features in Vision that people don't get to - such as workflow - because the poor documentation requires the hiring of consultants. Maybe this is by design, but it is too costly to keep doing this.

The accounting module is an example of a module that is solid as are others. And I find the people that handle the help and chat services to be dedicated and as helpful as possible.

Pros: To me its easier than Oracle and CRM other accounting systems.

Cons: without upgrades the capabilities and ease of doing things is limited.

Overall: I have used Deltek Vision for 10 years or so. Most of my frustrations are with features. My first company I used it for was a super user and this company we are not and I see that there are a lot of hang ups.

Recommendations to other buyers: The compatibility with web needs to be improved and a package for smaller companies so that we can purchase some of the addition add-ons without spending so much since the company is smaller but wants to have more capabilities.

Cons: iAccess doesn't show a project description when entering cells, see comment in review

Overall: I have used many of the tools in Vision, including the new iAccess and am excited to see what continues to improve. I do have one wish that i hope could be granted and that is to have iAccess show the project task and phase (not just the number) when your cursor is in a cell to enter time, like it shows in Vision. That way it will allow a double check as a user enters their time, I have found more errors when team members are using iAccess because they may not realize they are entering a code for ROW in Phase 53 and it should have been Utilities in Phase 52. And the line chart showing actual and planned progress will become a great asset. Thanks

Cons: Lack of credit card reporting, and limited 1099 setup.

Overall: We are a Service Company and have been using Vision for a little over a year now. Out of the box you have a lot of options on how to setup the system to meet your firm's needs. If there is customization that isn't available out of the box the software is flexible enough so that it can be incorporated into your firm's setup. After working through the implantation issues we are beginning to see all the benefits the system is able to prove to management.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure you have or hire a database expert on your team that is familiar with ERP systems. It will help your implementation go smoothly.

Comments: We have used Deltek Vision via the Cloud for two years. My previous firm was not on the cloud and it appeared we had more issues which I believe were related to our IT Department not always updating the software. The seamless updates are great.
I would have like to have more written manuals for the software. When I originally started using Deltek there were general manuals for each module. I found these invaluable.
The features and functionality is above what we need as a small firm. However, as we grow I can see were many of the functions we do not use will become invaluable.
We have had to reach out to customer support for technical issues related to problems with individuals users and each time the technical support has been excellent and our problems solved quickly. We have never had an "outage" or problem accessing the software which is a big plus.
While I would recommend this software to most firms, due to the cost of the software I would suggest smaller or start-up firms explore other options to see if their needs can be met through other software until the business is on solid ground.

Pros: Everything is very direct - you don't waste time looking for the program you need or wondering which program to utilize.

Cons: Some of the features (ie - vacation accruals) are difficult to set without previous software programming experience.

Overall: Vision allows our firm to seamlessly track project progress and maintain our office system in a safe and convenient location. We have been able to reduce paper-waste by uploading invoices and A/P directly into Vision. User settings allow our employees quick access to items needed to complete their projects efficiently. We are definitely happy with Vision!

Recommendations to other buyers: Keep setup tied to a few select people - Vision doesn't notice duplicate entries (Vendors with the same name, similar names, etc...) , so it's easy for that to happen and go unnoticed.

Cons: Complicated!! Not as flexible as we would like.

Overall: Our CCG Consultant, who set up and held our hands while Vision was getting built and running was FANTASTIC! The software is robust and has tremendous functionality, however, it is tough and time consuming to learn how to use. Once the iAccess platform is up and running for all functions, I have a feeling that will improve drastically. Customizing invoices to make them replicate Wind / FMS is next to impossible which is frustrating. Overall, we are happy to be on a new web-based system and have our business run on one software platform.

Recommendations to other buyers: More customizing for invoices please! We don't want to have to download to Word and make changes.

Overall: Overall I love the features, and ability to customize. CRM is useful. It integrates with Projects, which is a plus.

I would like to be able to integrate Billing with Projects more easily. For example, I can't compare Forecasted Invoicing with Actual invoicing (because those two modules don't communicate). It's a critical feature that i think any business would want to know, and it should be available. Otherwise, how would we know how well we can predict revenue? A revenue forecast is only as valuable as its accuracy. Right now, there is no easy way to gauge our accuracy using Vision.

Comments: I find Deltek's CRM module to be lacking. Many of us who are Office 365, are already on the 2016 version. Deltek's MS Outlook compatibility only works with version 2013. Also, your crm is not compatible with Windows Phone. Consequently I manage all of my contacts and clients via Outlook.

Entry into Deltek's CRM is cumbersome, and required the right data be entered in the right sequence, with very little flexibility. Consequently, we cannot just drag and drop from Outlook, nor can we export from a photo program designed to capture business cards and export to Outlook.

Because of this, and the fact that I am on the road a good portion of time, so need rapid, input and access, I don't use your CRM module, and just use Outlook.

Granted, the Windows Phone is a dying platform, but even on the Android, the process for entry does not mirror outlook and requires more steps.

In conclusion, if you could make your CRM completely compatible with the latest versions of Outlook, with drag and drop, or at least export/import capabilities...especially in bulk, that would make Deltek the go to for all things CRM.

Pros: See previous comments

Overall: We purchased deltk vision module to help us do project and resource planning of our critical engineering resources. We are medical supplier and using deltek to help us align project planning functions to resource draw. Our business is very dynamic due to customer, regulatory and market dynamics. Needless to say what starts out as a plan can change many times over. The linkages between the planning and the resource capacity assesments and reports are great. The Planning portion of deltek seems underdeveloped. Simple functions like a undo button dont exist. Comparisons of users who lived in a MS Project environment prior to deltek complain about simple functionality. I know there are upgrades coming throughout the year and we are anticipating some of our frustrations might be resolved.. Will wait and see. We are on the last year of our contract and love the resource feedback that the deltek system gives us. The cost to doing that is too much time in the planning module required to get that output. When initially selecting deltek it was obvious to us that it was geared to more service industry sectors then to a R&D and manufacturing company like ours. Using it going on 3 years we have enough frustrations with the planning side that we are researching other options to understand if something better exists. Really hope the planning side improves and makes our project managers more efficient.

Pros: like that we can go as simple or as deep as we want with the use of items

Cons: documentation is too complex. you should have educators as your consultants and have them write your support/how to documentation. too complex right out of the gate. need overlays of difficulty/features so that knowledge is built up gradually.

Overall: I am enjoying learning the many features of Vision - will take a LOT of time - but the robust nature of most of its features is great. Disappointed in the PO module - quirky - please bring up to par. Disappointed in some reporting limitations - fields not being available for filtering, and detail not being available always.

Pros: Ease of Use

Cons: Reporting an be confusing.

Overall: Vision has many capabilities. I typically use it for time keeping, but on occasion I have had the opportunity to explore other modules and the capability is vast. It's easy to use and navigate.

Recommendations to other buyers: It's worth what you put in. Utilize all the features that are available.

Comments: The aspiration for the software is an integrated and transparent method to manage resources and projects. It's a great aspiration but is let down by the very poor usability. Search function is overly complex and requires multiple clicks to get what you need; multiple tabs under multiple dropdowns so it's difficlt to remember how to get to the things you really need; non-intuitive labelling and terminology; reporting is very poor quality and generates enormously wide spreadsheets that can not be condensed into manageable reports; limited graphical output available. I am sure this will improve with time, but currently seriously unimpressed.

Comments: Our firm has been using Deltek Vision for a number of years, and I have personally had 4 years working with the software. As an architect, it is a little out of my area of expertise, but it has gone a long way toward integrating the information that drives our business. In that respect it is superb, and I am just learning how it can be used for many other things.

Their customer support is very good, and I have enjoyed working with Deltek.

The only negative that I see is that, in my opinion, the user interface for the software could use some work to become more intuitive - especially as I am not an accountant or finance manager, and am used to using software that has such qualities. Perhaps my opinion stems from being thrown into the program with a minimum of training and experience, but I could make some suggestions as to how the program interface could be streamlined.

Overall, though, it is powerful and extremely helpful to a business.

Pros: The capabilities are amazing.

Cons: It's a bit bulky. I wish that there was more of an "a la carte" way to use the program. We are a small design firm, and a good chunk of Vision isn't really anything we use.

Overall: We are a small architecture firm and, honestly, Vision is probably way bigger than what we actually have needed in the past. That said however, we have really benefitted from the portions of the program that we do use and have used, and there are several new portions that we are just starting to grow into. Our experience with the customer service team has been great, they really take the time to work with you so you understand what you're doing, and the Quick Chat feature is great for those quick little questions you have from time

Pros: Deltek Vision is a full suite of tools to manage our business. I'm very excited about the direction the software is heading (HTML 5)

Overall: Since we moved to the Deltek First in the Cloud, our platform has run smoothly. Reports are running quicker, no more glitches or errors, and the additional functionality is transforming how we do business. As a result, my team has time to perform "value add" rather than maintenance and trouble-shooting.

Recommendations to other buyers: As with any software, you only get out what you put into a software implementation. Do it right, do it well, and it will save you time and money for eternity.

Overall: The software is very powerful and can accomplish many tasks. It does take time learn the software well and understand how to generate reports that will be useful for your team. The app is much more user friendly and intuitive. I appreciate that you can tailor the software for what you need. Customer support for feedback and features could be a bit more accessible.

Recommendations to other buyers: Customization usually requires customer support.

Pros: Integrated T&E with financials.

Cons: User manual does not provide enough detail on configuration. Anything complicated requires use of a consultant.

Overall: I have been using Deltek Vision for approximately two years. Company provides professional services, so mainly T&E projects, a few fixed price projects. Integrated T&E and financials works very well. Standard reports provide most of what we need and have found customizing easy to do. Mainly using accounting, billing, T&E, reporting. Setting up new projects, new employees, new vendors, and new clients is pretty simple. However, some of the backend setup, such as Revenue Methods is complicated, so we've had to hire a consultant a couple of times. Deltek Customer Support has been great. Prompt response time and great follow up. No issues with system availability either.

Pros: It takes the place of 4 separate systems and accessible from anywhere since its cloud based.

Cons: As a professional services firm it seems to be lacking in features for our processes.

Overall: In my experience I have been happy overall with my Deltek Vision software. As a professional services firm, there are features I am hoping for that will make my job easier. Workflows are good but could be easier to build. The planning module is also good but needs more automated features......too manual at this point. Billing module for our firm is also very manual....takes 1 - 2 days to complete and post.

Recommendations to other buyers: Request for more professional services features please.

Pros: None

Cons: Customer Service

Overall: Our experience was absolutely horrible. Customer service agents screwed us from day one and we ended up getting stuck with a 3 year license that was never used. Why? Because Customer service agents are the most dishonest persons that I have ever dealt with in business. I would be happy to explain further if Deltek wants more information. Please be advised that our 3 year license agreement cost us a lot. After Customer service agents us, we asked for a refund of the license fee, we were given the finger by not only her but Deltek. We are currently looking at legal action against Deletek to get our money back.

Pros: The reporting features are so inclusive that you really can get any info you need at the click of report once you have them set up.

Cons: It relies on accurate entry of data so I can't even say that there's a negative about the software just that you need consistent processes of input in order for the features to work efficiently.

Overall: Deltek Vision is a work horse of a software program. Its functionality is extensive and requires a full time person to be invested fully into set up and maintenance of the many features available. We find that we aren't able to use many of the great features simply because we don't have the time to explore and learn them all. Reporting features are fantastic and so useful in project management. Highly recommend this program for any project based company.

Recommendations to other buyers: For smaller companies all modules may not be required so I would start with the core product and work up to the other modules. There is a lot of functionality in each one so you need staffing responsible for set up and use in each section of you won't be able to use the program to its full ability.

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.

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

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.

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: Highly integrated across the business.

Cons: Almost impossible to use.

Overall: The software is terribly unfriendly to the user. It requires that a company hire outside consultants to make it do the things it should do straight out of the box. We have been on this software for more than ten years and we still are not getting a good value.

If Deltek would assemble ten representatives from architecture and engineering firms, we could give you the advice you need to make this a great product, right out of the box. It could be fully functional for 85% of the A/E market. But instead, we complain and our suggestions go into some bottomless pit of other suggestions that never seem to come back to the top. I would never recommend Deltek Vision to anyone who is not yet trapped into using it.

Recommendations to other buyers: Listen to me and all of the other clients who are begging to help you improve.

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.

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.

Comments: Deltek offers endless options and customizations. This is great if you need it and get trained on it, cumbersome if you don't need or don't invest the time to learn.

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: Versatility and compatibility with other software solutions

Cons: Administration is somewhat cumbersome.

Overall: Deltek Vision is a very robust software . We have just transitioned to the Cloud and find it is very fast and responsive. We have had very few issues with Vision. We have used it for many years for our accounting and time management and are now beginning to use the CRM portion of the software.

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: Compared to our previous billing and business tracking software Vision is a dream. Vision is relatively user friendly and once you understand a few peculiarities it is easy to use. The Deltek support program is top notch. This one product replaced two systems previously utilized, making less work for our bookkeeping staff.
