Comments: As a GovCon system's consultant, I've used/fixed/implemented/transitioned from this system numerous times. It was the accounting solution I recommended to all of my clients looking to be DCAA Compliant. I am sad it's no longer being sold/offered from Deltek.

Pros: I loved most things about this system. It was incredibly simple to implement. The interface was simplified so it became very easy to train new users. Projects and the JSR reports delivered enough information to manage programs/contracts. If setup correctly, it was the ultimate in getting your GovCon accounting system approved by the DCAA.

Cons: Unfortunately, the support for this product is supposedly going away. They're moving everyone to a lite/compartmentalized à la carte version of Costpoint now. This system was expensive but affordable in the sense that your average clerk/bookkeeper could be taught how to use it. Costpoint isn't for the faint at heart! :)

PPM has a lot of functionality, but a time investment is needed to master it.

Pros: Cobra reports are created as Excel files.

Easy budget re-calculation, budget import.

Cons: The integration wizard is a little quirky.

Overall: Our organization purchased Open Plan and COBRA over 8 years ago. However, we didn't really know much about either application before doing so. The Deltek consultants were very helpful in helping us get each one set up and ready for use. The problem was we didn't start using them on a regular basis or commit resources to them full time, so our knowledge base and expertise didn't evolve. Open Plan proved to be more robust than we needed at the time and we stopped using it. COBRA is used for only specific projects, mainly EVM related, and has provided us some nice benefits. But we still don't have a good handle on all of the functionality, which is holding us back a little.

My suggestion is to invest time and resources to these products to get a better ROI.

Comments: This software is truly an asset to any company who is willing to put the time, money and resources (human) behind utilizing it to its fullest potential. If you are not ready to completely switch over to this program (leave all other software behind), then do not make the jump!

Pros: If everyone is one board to learn this program, you are in for a real treat.

Cons: Very hard to become proficient at unless you read all online, free resources, and then pay a lot of money to learn the next layer of information at workshops, followed by paying more money for the private consultation to answer follow-up, in-depth questions pertaining to your firms' standard practice.

Recommendations to other buyers: Sit and visit with someone who uses it from an accounting, administrative, principal, AND project manager position

Deltek First takes a lot off the IT dept and gives it to administrator

Pros: The updates get implemented automatically without the need to upgrade on-site servers, and the customer service is always very prompt.

Cons: Most times you have to start with the lowest level of help desk before getting bumped up to someone that actually knows what they are doing. It would be nice to have 1 or even a few experts that were assigned to you so you could build a relationship and skip on some of the frustration of having a novice send you something they copied and pasted out of a manual.

Recommendations to other buyers: Use the online tools and discussion boards available to you. It helps you learn about new or un-used features as well as some little tricks to make things easier.

Comments: Cobra is a good earned value system. Great for meeting the government reporting requirements and for managing cost/schedule on projects.

Pros: Easy to use, V8 looks like MS products latest versions, multiple ways a user can get to what they need. Excellent tool for earned value management.

Cons: Not a lot, upgrades sometimes create new issues and have to wait for a patch/fix to come out.

Recommendations to other buyers: Would recommend using this tool for a company's EV tool, especially with its integration with Open Plan and PM Compass.

Great for small business.

Pros: This software works best in conjunction with a scheduling software such as Oracle Primavera. It allows us to measure based on industry best practices the quality of schedules.

Cons: Some of the stats given out of the box does not give a good indication of schedule quality. Will need to tweak to fit your organizational needs. May be cumbersome and can take some time to set up correctly.

Comments: I have been using open plan for about four years and PMC and Acumen more recently. I like how all of these tools (including Cobra) work with each and have found them to be user friendly.

Pros: Accuracy and integration with Cobra to calculate EV.

Cons: Unforgiving at times - greater use of undo function would be nice.

Recommendations to other buyers: PPM suite is a good collection of tools and I recommend it.
