Comments: Deltek Vision has quite the array of built-in configuration settings to allow any project-based consulting firm to tailor the software to their needs. One of my favorite things about Deltek Vision is that it gives me the ability to track and integrate critical business information through the use of the software's built-in custom information centers.

Pros: Customer Support, Extensibility, Built in Configuration Options, Vast Reporting Capabilities, Detailed Documentation, Full Project Life-Cycle Integration

Cons: To keep consulting costs to a minimum, it would be best to have an internal SME to get the most out of the product.

The cost outweighs the options

Comments: Stick to QuickBooks if you are not a novice accountant or CPA.

Pros: The online chat for support is very helpful and easy to get an answer for the question you are searching their FAQ's.

Cons: The reporting options are difficult to pull the information you would like to see. Dashboards are minimal.

Pros: The best part of these software is the ease of use. The ability to create specific reports is great, and you can allow managers specific security so that they can view them from their desktop.

Cons: I wish the ability to create better graphs within the software was available. They have come a long way, but need more.

I have used this software to report time and expenses for many years.

Pros: When configured properly this software is very user friendly and intuitive. There are a lot of features that not everyone will need but certainly useful if you take the time to learn it.

Cons: I can't think of anything I don't like about this software. The insert function inserts a new line item below instead of above the line selected but that is just a tiny bit annoying. I'm over it.

Overall: It captures time and expense data very thoroughly. I like that there is a field for every detail you would need to enter.

Powerful yet not so user friendly.

Comments: Not so user friendly, too much steps to get one voucher in. Entering description is not so easy and flexible, keep getting too much error message.

Pros: Biggest help is that It has WIP feature where we can keep track or our work in progress without outsourcing to vendors. It offers full accounting functions.

Cons: In the reports, info are not easily accessible with clicking the items you want to see. VIsual weakness where it does not disclose all info in the window and cannot adjust borders left or right to fully expose all info...always need to use left and right scroll to enter or see the whole line.. voucher and invoice number too short, can't fit long numbers, All the modules are not available...can't tell if other modules that we don't have licenses are useful to us or we need it if we don't know how it works or what it can do,,,,it doesn't give trial period like quickbooks or peachtree where we can test it for short period. Reports are too much options but doesn't have options that allows us to see more clearly. Visual really too messy...would like to see simpler and clear reports.

Pros: It allows me to have three databases open. In my case, Projects, Employees and Timesheets. It's great to toggle between them without having to log out and in again. Data retrieval is quick. It allows me to search for very specific information so my results don't overwhelm. Data access is controlled at the user level so people cannot edit fields without proper permission. Before Vision, we used a database that contained project numbers that were preserved in the Vision database. So if we need to look up project data based on the old number, we are able to. This saves us a lot of time.

Cons: It is difficult to learn this software on your own beyond searching. There are so many features that allow us to look at the data in several ways. Most of those ways are unknown to me so training is required. I would suggest that companies provide proper training before implementing it firmwide to avoid frustration.

Overall: Information about each project such as who is the PM, lead architect, lead accountant, project location, legacy data, status, etc. is essential to our business. We can easily search for all current projects in any city, state, province, country. Our PMs use this to keep track of payments, invoices, employees assigned to the project, budget data, and documents stored on our servers can be linked from within a record. We can view other projects for the vendor or client.

Pros: It's a relational database in its root, sitting on top of a MS SQL database, so the flexibility inherent in that is a huge plus. It's project-based, which is essential for A&E firms. Over-the-chat tech support is a pretty awesome feature.

Cons: Reporting could be better. It's pretty clunky and unintuitive, thus forcing many users to reach for Excel for the usual features. Other than the over-the-chat tech support, the learning resources are pretty scarce, but Deltek is actively trying to remedy that.

Pros: I've used this software for at least 3 years now, it's great for many things like project management and proposal preparation. It allows you to store and organize so much info per each project you might be working on. In my case, we use it for architectural and engineering projects. We use it daily.

Cons: The platform is a bit outdated looking, but the software does its job which is organizing info. One of the main cons I would see is the creation of duplicates, this is a great issue when doing proposal preparation. Some people have read-only permissions but other who can edit often create duplicates, so a little maintenance needs to be done here and there.

Could build an aircraft carrier with this software or use it to run a small destroyer, depending on your needs.

Comments: Overall as compared to the other 5 ERP systems I have used over the years I have to say Vision is one of the best out there, especially for project oriented tracking. Deltek is also a company looking for improvement and advancement within their programs. The new generation they are working on to Vision takes the program to a very modern and more robust place. Great things are coming!

Pros: Has the ability to be customized in many ways to improve functionality and process routine tasks behind the scenes with workflows. Great when you want scheduled reports to be pushed out to staff on a regular basis, can be either be emailed or sent to a dashboard. System is fairly easy to use and navigate once you get the hang of it. However, the size and capability can be off putting if you give too much access to none power users.

Cons: Although there are many reports and lots of options within each report they can also be limiting. For example if you wanted to run an A/R graph for aging you can only choose three options (Current, 30, & 60 days). Therefore if you have five options (Current, 30+, 60+, 90+, 120+) you will need to run two graphs to see all the info. However, if you have someone who know SQL you can design and write your own reports which is a plus.

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.

Comments: Deltek Vision is mainly well suited for project managers to view project data in one place and also for billing purposes. It allows you to view a project as whole or drill down and see a certain time frame. Deltek Vision could be updated to be more HR inclusive. Right now we can only use it for time and expense and also payroll.

Pros: The time sheet and expense entering are very detailed and users can log time from iAccess if they are out of the office as well as upload to receipts straight into vision. It works great as a billing system. it's pretty straight forward and being able to run batches or also single invoices depending on your need is helpful. It has a wide variety of reporting and you can also customize report to drill down and pull the info you need.

Cons: It can be difficult for new users and somewhat overwhelming. You need to be familiar with customizing reports to be able to get what you want. The default reports don't usually provide what information is needed. I really hate that we still have to use internet explorer to access vision.

Comments: Sign up with a local user group and attend Insight to enhance your Vision skill set.

Pros: Deltek Vision is high on connections. Start with the Client, link off to the: contacts for that Client, Opportunities created for that Client, Projects created for that Client and see a Project Review which includes billing, cost and AR information.

Cons: Since Deltek Vision is both powerful and comprehensive, there is a learning curve. Be prepared by reading documentation and learning from your coworkers.

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

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.

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.

Great product for project management.

Comments: Been using Deltek for over 15 years and it's the best product for any company that is project based.

Pros: Timesheets / Expense reports. Info Center Designer - you are able to add and personalized. Downloading majority of items into any version...like Excel. iAccess

Cons: Reporting - needs more flexibility to combine fields to get customized reporting. More financial functions needed.

Pros: It's less expensive affordable than other softwares out there. It has all the important features yet it is still updating with more features every year.

Cons: It's reports are not customizable to better fit our need. Hard to adjust to our need. Voucher numbers and invoice numbers are too short. Columns and tabs are too shortvertical way where only option is to scroll down rather than fully open the tab it will still not show all the transaction. I still have to scroll down.

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: 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.

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.

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: 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.

Comments: DRMP, Inc is a Civil Engineering firm with 350+ employees. It has been using Vision since 10 years ago and before that it used Advantage. The following modules have been implemented: - Vision Core - Vision CRM - Vision Payroll - Deltek Talent Acquisition And we're in the process of implementing Asset Management and Deltek Talent Performance Vision is used as our ERP system company wide.

Pros: - Very customizable. As it uses SQL as the backend database, custom store procedures can be created to automate company processes. - Very powerful software that can meet a lot of the company's needs. - The use of workflows is something else that is very beneficial because it allows to automate task.

Cons: - The security portion is cumbersome and sometimes not very flexible. - Training is very expensive

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.

Pros: Ease of tracking time and ability to break down complex projects and filter billings.

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

Pros: Revenue Generation, Reporting, and Analysis Cubes

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.

Pros: Functionality, able to manage full business in one software program. Strong consultants available to help.

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.

I also see that things are so hidden that you have no choice other than to turn to tech support which may or may not be able to help you.

Cons: See prior comment

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: The flexibility. Ease of use.

Cons: The reporting feature. In my last job, where I also functioned database administrator, I used Crystal Reports (which I really liked) to create the reports I needed. In my new job, I don't have Crystal so I've been having to make do with the standard reports which aren't as customizable.

Overall: I have been using Deltek Vision for well over a decade. I love it! It's flexible, easy to use and completely customizable.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure your firm has an advocate - a go-to person - for the software/database. Someone that's going to understand the depths of the data and repercussions of extreme customization.
