Comments: I have not attempted to use Deltek for anything other than submitting my regular time sheet. I am aware that there are other uses which could potentially add value for a business.

Pros: I use this project to keep track of my time sheet on a bi-weekly basis. I like that Deltek allows for comments to be entered under for each day so I can easily communicate to my supervisor all of the work that I did during the pay period.

Cons: There was a bit of a learning curve in regards to launching the application on my PC. It was not as intuitive as I had hoped it would be. I also sometimes experience difficulty when attempting to save the time sheet data I have entered in. This happens most often after my computer has been left idle with the application still running in the background.

Pros: What I like about Deltek Vision modules are purchasing and asset management because they allow me to track purchase orders and fixed assets; It helps me to get new business, improve performance and optimize the operations of our company.

Cons: For some people within the company's user interface it is not always so friendly and does not have much ability to change the screen size.

In addition, it may not be ideal for companies that only require specific modules, since all the modules are included in the software.

Overall: I am using Deltek Vision to identify problems affecting the performance of our company and hinder the successful implementation of some projects. I am also taking advantage of useful features to improve performance and complete projects successfully.

Pros: It keeps up with as many projects as we have - and we've got a bunch! We use it to track hundreds of projects, and it never crashes/drops - it's been very stable for us, and if you can understand how to ask for the right data, the reports are pretty helpful.

Cons: Understanding how to ask for the right data is very challenging sometimes. It's also hard to catch typos or other mistakes - it would be really nice if it has some inteligence, and could say "hey, you've charged time for the past month to project number 1234.5, and this month you're charging time to 12345 - is that a typo?"

Pros: The sheer amount of customization of this program is amazing - my firm can track tons of information and cross-reference it in multiple ways to keep all of our ducks in a row and coordinate our efforts.

Cons: When differentiating between projects, there are certain areas, "tasks" that can be used for billing and it does make it hard to not customize how one separates the work.

Pros: It's pretty straight-forward and has an absurd amount of features for any size of firm - in addition to basic accounting and project budgeting, it can also run payroll and track HR items. The financial, accounting, and project reporting are all very customizable

Cons: The PTO accrual is wonky and doesn't really work, the look of the software is a bit dated, there are lots of features that a firm of our size just doesn't use - the software sometimes feels daunting

Overall: mainly, project reporting (direct, indirect labor costs, overhead, job expenses, billing the client, etc).

Comments: I'd recommend looking for software that meets your needs and that can integrate with other software. There are so many features that could really make this a great product, but the company won't invest what it takes to make this better for their clients.

Pros: Single-piece of software to handle project-based accounting. Timesheets, expense reports, general ledger and everything else is in one place.

Cons: Reporting is difficult, even using out-of-box reports. The accounting functionality is clunky, and it's not state-of-the-art software in any of the areas that it handles. Implementation is expensive, and it's difficult to get the information needed to run your firm.

Pros: Deltek is a relatively simple program to use for tracking employees and projects. The simplicity of it almost makes it complicated, but it will get the job done if you are looking for an affordable program for project management.

Cons: Deltek is extremely elementary in an age where companies need more functionality within programs of this nature. This platform is only for project management, which means in a larger company, you will need to supplement with an actual HRIS. You end up putting in information twice (one with deltek and one with an HRIS) which is a time-waster. It would be nice if the program communicated to and HRIS, so that changes or information input into Deltek wouldn't need to be entered in multiple places.

Overall: Makeshift HRIS for smaller companies

Comments: This product is specifically designed to support the complete project lifecycle of professional services firms, Deltek Vision helps measure your most critical business functions. From pipeline building and client management to project execution and financial management, Deltek Vision users can experience measurable benefits immediately, including increased employee utilization, streamlined project management, reduced DSO and increased margins and profitability.

Pros: Deltek Vision's is a software solution that allows you utilize custom proposal modules and government forms modules to cut down on hours off of proposal preparation. Because Deltek is the "source of truth" for our employee history and project history we are able to easily and quickly pull information from Vision onto proposal templates in minutes. Pulling information from a centralized archive it gives our users confidence in the data, employee updates/feedback are made one time (in Vision) instead having to always start the process over whenever a new proposal document is presented to the employee and gives our marketing professionals the extra time needed to craft the proposal to meet the RFP and client requested information. We use Deltek Vision to support our Strategic Plan goal for the company growing and win more work!

Cons: The user interface is extremely difficult to get used to. Since we started using this software my group has received a lot of calls from people in my organization who are unsure how to do basic searches and will ask us for help/assistance because they'd rather not deal with it. The main thing that is not intuitive is its search function, which is critical.

Pros: I love that this is a project based solution as well as the ability to customize the product. PM and accountants are able to clearly see every project and allows for easy out of the box project reporting. Customer service is also amazing.

Cons: Our set up is a bit different, we have a lot of customization which sometimes affects the software's performance, but this is our own doing so we can't hold it against the product. The fact that it can be customized is a plus, the downside is you have to upgrade the custom(s) every time you want to upgrade or even apply the a CU.

Comments: We use vision for billing, invoicing is made simpler and PMs have an easier time managing their projects. iAccess greatly helps PM's get a quick snapshot of their projects on a daily basis - which means more efficiency.

Pros: Time and expense management as well as reporting and being able to drill down for PMs on certain aspects of their projects. The reporting functions well, and the batch billing is excellent for running large amounts of invoices at one time.

Cons: I don't like that it only runs on internet explorer - it's a bit outdated. I also wish that it was more HR inclusive. It would be great if you could run unposted labor reports that included the billing rates which is a minor inconvenience. Also if you could run an unposted unit report as well that would greatly benefit the PMs.

Overall it's a great tool for project management.

Pros: Deltek helps to improve business development by organizing all client information very effectively. Deltek can segregate the works that have been finished and determining the time that has been spent on each work.Billing and invoices are differentiated based on the client project. We can customize everything according to our work requirement, Deltek provides a good customer support for any problem.

Cons: The interface is not intuitive there are no basic tutorials showing how to use the interface. Expense report submission needs improvement which takes a lot of time to create it.Apart from this, there is no more issues using this software.

Pros: For time and expense entering, it was easy to understand and to use. Accounts and tasks are clearly labeled and I never had any problems using it in this manner.

Cons: From my experience, it doesn't seem very flexible. When it was first set up for my former company, projects were broken up differently and set up by people who didn't grasp the elements of the work very well. When we tried to change by adding codes for different tasks, we were repeatedly told that that wasn't possible because those codes weren't on a "list" of defined tasks. Not sure if this is actually the fault of the software or of the accounting personnel at that company at the time.

Pros: The general ledger was easy and logical for an accountant. The work breakdown structure allowed for reporting consolidated reports as well as subsidiary level, office level, and departmental reports. Vision handled large amounts of transactions and data efficiently.

Vision offers functionality to do time sheets and expense reports remotely.

Vision has great security features that can remove access to certain areas or information based on an employees role in the Company. It is easy to remove rights immediately when employees leave the Company. In addition, roles can control who can make changes or post transactions.

Vision allows for automated reporting. For example, an Accounts Receivable report can be automatically sent to an employee's email on a scheduled basis.

Cons: The software is not logical for non-accountants. The software is primarily for A'E firms but very difficult for those users. Most of the engineers are unable to write and run project reports. When they do get a report, the report isn't easily understood.

The software is difficult to support internally and requires a database specialist to get maximum value. Vision contains a massive amount of data but the canned reports do not always offer the different types of data in same report. Unless you can write custom reports, you will have to pay expensive consulting fees.

Deltek Vision is so customizable!

Pros: The out of the box product is good, add to that the functionality, and then on top of that how easy it to customize to your needs - it towers on top of other similar software products.

Pros: Sort of tailored for A&E firms.

Pros: the ease of use is great, it's very easy to maneuver around the software with minimal experience using the software.

Cons: The reporting for Accounting necessities are definitely lacking. I'd like more complex reporting with options of better filters. For example, finding payments from / to vendors / clients you have to run multiple reports and merge them manually.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Pros: The reporting works great for our company, there are so many different ways you can manipulate to get exactly what you want pulled right to the front. Entering time and expense is also easy to use, especially now that we have upgraded and are using iAccess - that helps people out in the field or out of the office.

Cons: I really hate that we still have to use Explorer to get into vision. If you are unfamiliar with Vision, it can be difficult to grasp and can seem very unfriendly to users.

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: The reports are easy to use, lots of reports are already pre-loaded and I love that you can export into a PDF, word document or excel document. The accounting functions are very easy to navigate and labeled very clear.

Cons: Reports: I wish there was a way to customize the reports even more and/or combined several report and multiplier months.

It's not user friendly.

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: 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.

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.

Comments: For the most part I think it is a good system from a projects standpoint. And knowing where everything is being spent. However, I do not like the multiple steps you have to do for most functions. And how hard to use some of the reports and getting them to look a certain way.
