"Project based solutions"

What do you like best?

I love that this is a project based solution as well as the ability to customize the product.

What do you dislike?

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.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They are phasing out Vision and heading to a cloud based solution, something to keep in mind.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A project based accounting system, with timesheets, reporting and contact management. One area we have just started to utilize is project planning, and it has been very helpful so far to those that have started using it. An integrated planning module saves time and makes it easy to use.

"Could be more robust and agile"

What do you like best?

Fairly user intuitive to use, logical layout

What do you dislike?

No historical tracking (original dates are lost on rehires); the multi-country aspect isn't fully robust (annual salary still appears to reflect USD despite local currency, without conversion); Time/Expense group setup is arduous and complicated, easy to mess up, not easy to update en masse; benefit hours piece is not nearly as agile as it should be to allow for complex plan designs; when updating EE Info, there should be a wizard that prompts or auto-updates related items like Labor Category to maintain consistency throughout org.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be sure to thoroughly road-test before any upgrade in Vision and plan your project implementation accordingly with plenty of time for testing! Also, do everything you can to locate current companies using Vision that are similar in nature to yours in terms of the features you currently need / plan to use in the future to get their direct feedback on functionality before making a switch to Vision.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Deltek Vision for project cost accounting and employee System of Record

"Vision works"

What do you like best?

Deltek Vision's custom proposal module and government forms modules shaves hours off of proposal preparation. Because Deltek Vision 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 repository gives our users confidence in the data, employee updates/feedback are made one time (in Vision) rather than every time a new proposal document is put in front of 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 company growing and win more work!

What do you dislike?

The current system view is outdated. The newest version of Vision is being rolled out in waves over 2018 and is an updated browser agnostic application. I am looking forward to the dynamic features of the newer system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have the CRM and Proposal modules only so we have had to develop system integration with our non-Deltek financial management system. Deltek Vision helps us market smarter - giving all our staff the information they need to sell our professional services. Have we worked for a specific client before? Yes, on what jobs? Who were the team members on that job? Are there additional team members who have a relationship with the client? What opportunities have we proposed on for this client? Did we win or lose the proposal submission? What is the stored activities for clients, contacts or opportunities? Project histories (from a marketing perspective, not project resource management) and managing our employee data -- who is licensed where, degrees, years of experience, what jobs did an employee work on, how many hours charged, what was their role ... the types of information we need to know to market our company smarter and ultimately WIN MORE WORK!

"Extremely useful database, not so user-friendly"

What do you like best?

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. It also makes timesheet and expense report management pretty easy.

What do you dislike?

The user interface is extremely difficult to get used to, such that there are tons of people in my organization who will email me, a familiar user who likes the program, to do basic searches for them because they'd rather not deal with it. The main thing that is not intuitive is its search function, which is critical.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You have to put a ton of effort into learning the interface. Make sure you have someone go to trainings/conferences for this, so that you can have a "super user" available to help those who struggle to figure out the program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to coordinate marketing and business development efforts across offices with dozens of people due to having all our historical client information in one place.

"Great Platform for Our Business"

What do you like best?

We have a large amount of program codes, reporting needs, and time tracking needs that Deltek supports. It's easy to integrate into our business.

What do you dislike?

The functionality for Mac users vs. PC users. It's more robust for PC users, therefore people who have a Mac need a Virtual Machine to access everything the platform offers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are a lot of platforms out there so do your research to figure out if Deltek is the right one for your business. Deltek has a lot to it that many businesses may not have a need for.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Managing timesheets, project tracking, accounting, reporting.

"Great middle of the road time sheet and expense report application."

What do you like best?

The ability to differentiate between the projects that have been worked on and the time spent on each is excellent. The expense reports can also be project based which allows us to separate client billing and invoices.

What do you dislike?

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. The expense report area of this application is rather tiresome with the amount of time needed to set up, review and attribute to a project.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great middle of the road expense and time sheet program. If you have multiple projects and expense reports that need to be submitted for approval or you are approving them, this works great. It starts to get a but muddled whenever you need more detail because the use needs to manually type in the information and can sometimes be inaccurate.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits that are the ability to manage many different projects with time spent on each for billing purpose as well as planning purposes. Expense reports also help keep out of pocket

"Configurable, customizable fully integrated solution"

What do you like best?

The ability to make Vision meet our needs, branding and goals. We can access it without the firewall allowing end-users to have the information at their fingertips.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the customer service support individuals in the first level do not understand the question and you need to push to be elevated to higher support individuals.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ask the questions specific to your firm, provide examples of what is needed and request to see mock-ups of what the system can do. Determine if this is designed within the system or something that requires customization by their team.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have consolidated multiple self-built systems into one integrated database. We are reducing to this day the number of Excel or other non-system generated reports. We've not started focusing on what can be done and how the system can be an integral part of how we move forward.

"Vision Rocks"

What do you like best?

Single web based application to access all of my core operations for making sound project decisions. Deltek Vision provides easy to use tools that allow the Owners all the way down to the day to day staff the ability to see and understand were are resources and project budgets stand

What do you dislike?

I dislike that is only runs on Internet Explorer. this product should not be limited to a single browser.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check it out for sure

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Resources across 17 locations are now seen on one pane of glass for management meetings. We make stronger decisions. We are invoicing our clients faster because seeing and understanding what to bill based on the reports. This makes for happy clients and PM's

"A good software, hard to learn, limited support"

What do you like best?

I work with the project side of Vision more often than the accounting side. The style is old, but the new version being released later this year should provide a more modern look.

What do you dislike?

The software is primarily sold through consulting companies that will help you implement the software, and modify to you business needs. Problem is you're forever stuck with the original consulting company. Ours was horrible, copyrighted changes we requested and paid for, now when something goes wrong with their modifications we have to pay to have them fixed. We can't go to a better company because of the contractual agreements Deltek is allowing. This is why I can't recommend this software to other companies.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Because of our negative implementation and consulting company issues we only use part of all of the software. Our senior management team has been so unhappy about the implementation they won't OK time or resources to expand the capabilities of the software.

"Overall, it's a go!"

What do you like best?

There's a lot of flexibility and customization you can do for your particular firm. If you have someone who is willing to dive into it, there's a lot you can do internally without having to hire a consultant.

What do you dislike?

The development sometimes stops short of being fully functional. To work around it, you have to create more custom fields which just clutters things up.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The next generation of Vision (DPS) looks more like what we need and would fix a lot of the user friendly issues we find with most of our staff.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Risk and contract management, project management, accounting

"Data and Reporting"

What do you like best?

Being able to access the database directly to create queries for data QA and reporting. Being able to schedule recurring reports - Vision works for me even when I'm not at work! Accounting and CRM link to each other seamlessly.

What do you dislike?

Bittersweet - Vision is being rewritten into Deltek Professional Services. I'll need to relearn, however, the upgrades should be fabulous.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get involved with user groups!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Building relationships with CRM. Improving follow up on Opportunities, that increase sales, that increase revenue and being smarter to increase profits.

"Great product that listens to the industry and delivers what it needs."

What do you like best?

This is a full service project that can provide both back office and project managers detailed information about the financial status of any segment at any time.

What do you dislike?

The schedule of implementation for the new and improved can be more aggressive than I'd like at times. I'm really concerned about my back office going away in the next year with the scheduled upgrades. I'm sure my concerns will go away once I can see the demos of my new reality.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great product truly designed for a cost accounting on project based system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Project managers have hard numbers about their projects. This empowers them to take ownership of their work. There is no way to hide the success or failures financially.

"A great tool for project management"

What do you like best?

I like how Deltek Vision provides comprehensive functions of project management in one program, including time sheets, expense reports, budget/work hour planning, accounting, etc. Managing work utilization through Deltek is very helpful especially when you have staff from different geographic locations working on a same project. It keeps everyone in the loop of who is assigned how many hours on what specific task of a project at what billing rate. The reporting function is helpful in checking the progress of the project - you can see how much of the budget is spent and who spent how many hours on which and which tasks so far. It also keeps record of the projects that each staff has worked on, which helps in building a resume for them.

What do you dislike?

It is not so intuitive. You will need about one day's worth of training if you are to use this program as a project manager. There are lots of functions, which is great, but you can't figure them out on your own.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a great product for managing professional service projects. I would strongly recommend my peers to use this software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Deltek Vision to manage my projects. It is an indispensable software if you want an easier and more effective ways to manage your projects from start to finish.

"A little funky and out dated"

What do you like best?

Time and expense management is easy if you use a computer on a daily basis. However, field employees have difficulty signing in and entering time to the right jobs.

What do you dislike?

Overall, the system's appearance is very outdated. We're talking pre-Y2K here outdated. There are too many fields required and we've worked with Deltek to get that consolidated to only what we need. The program also seems confusing when searching in the search bar for employee name, instead of a drop down it takes you to the first "Smith" record.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I really don't like this program. We've hired a few new team members to our accounting staff who agree the system is outdated and has it's limitations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use this for time & expense and all accounting needs. Seems really out dated. Hopefully making a switch soon!

"Deltek is Hands-Down the Best Accounting Program"

What do you like best?

We use Deltek Vision for our timesheets, managing project budgets, accounts receivables, and invoicing. I love how easy it is to generate custom reports for all of your project needs. Deltek Vision is a very powerful program that I would recommend to anyone needing a reliable accounting program!

What do you dislike?

We found it that Delteck Vision was lacking in the expense report department. We use Concur for expense reporting because the interface, mobility, uploading of receipts, and ease of programing was better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Deltek Vision is a great program for all of your accounting needs. I have worked any a couple of companies and a majority of them use Deltek Vision and have switched from other timekeeping programs like Oracle.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have used Deltek Vision for about 85% of our accounting requirements which include: weekly timesheets, managing and tracking projects, creating custom reports and preparing invoice cover letters for our clients.

"Using Deltek to log in hours worked"

What do you like best?

The best aspect of Deltek is signing on with the phone. I am unable to carry my laptop with me all the time - I commute from various places and occasionally forget to log in my hours during the work week when things get busy.

What do you dislike?

The feature I least like is having to type in the project code and location specifics when logging hours. Sometimes I expect the project codes to be there for me to automatically select, similar to how a computer holds the information for login. Perhaps I am unfamiliar and just have not found it yet thus typing it in every time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Suggest this to your supervisor to you are able to log in hours through your phone instead of through the computer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are no business problems I use to solve with Vision. It is for strictly logging in hours when the loaner laptop is busy.

"Deltic Vision in the Gov CON Space"

What do you like best?

For beginners, this is a very user friendly system to navigate. It does have limitations, but nothing that isn't easy to correct!

What do you dislike?

Reports are very hard to export. They do not line up when exported to excel, so we spend time formatting.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have solved many reporting challenges by implementing our own project reporting module that is a stand alone of vision. We are able to import data into this report and create it to look how we need it to for our customers. It has definitely cut down on the manual time spent in the past that we used to spend to create one report. Now we can create hundreds at the push of a button.

"Okay, Hard to Learn"

What do you like best?

All of the information you would ever need is there, however it is hard to learn, and the online tutorials aren't easy to apply to live usage. I'm sure it is a great product, but you need a lot of time and effort to learn how it functions.

What do you dislike?

It was really hard to learn, and even after 6 months I barely could navigate through it without asking for help.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just make sure you are good with programs like that. A new person coming in to use a program is difficult, so be sure to have people who are familiar with it and that are willing to help you learn.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The company I worked for switched over to it, but kept their old program as well, so I'm not sure if anything was solved.

"Vision User for a decade"

What do you like best?

Being able to access the database directly to create queries for data QA and reporting. Being able to schedule recurring reports - Vision works for me even when I'm not a work! Accounting and CRM link to each other seamlessly.

What do you dislike?

User adoption is difficult. It takes time to learn the details.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Write a list of pros and cons

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tracking new business. Creating standardized reports that are delivered directly to the appropriate person on a consistent basis and reviewing the overall report with teams weekly and the group monthly have increased the amount of closed sales. Closed sales lead to work and more work leads to increased profits.

"Accounting and time tracking in depth"

What do you like best?

Deltek provides excellent time tracking, accounting features, reporting, and advanced features to provide a company status from a snapshot to in-depth reports. Very powerful sorting and reporting capabilities usable by accounting personnel, project managers, and employees in general.

What do you dislike?

The user interface is not the greatest. A few improvements have been implemented over the years, however, there are a few desirable features left out. For example, resizing to fit the screen, active resizing of columns, and scrolling capabilities are not available.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Steep learning curve. The capabilities Deltek offers are immense; take the time to research how it will integrate into your model. Once you deploy, making sure all records are input as accurately as possible will greatly simplify the process.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Knowing the status of any of our projects is a critical aspect of business and is greatly simplified by the sorting and reporting capabilities Deltek provides. This is particularly important to PMs and accounting teams in our business.

"Deltek works...but"

What do you like best?

We've been able to add custom fields, and custom reports that are shareable across the organization. It takes some work behind the scenes, but deltek has been pretty good to us! Also, the expense portion has gotten better with time - since we've been able to have our credit cards feed directly into Deltek for reporting ease!!

What do you dislike?

I really wish it captured point in time/historical data/I wish the workflow and approvals on things were a little bit more intuitive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it for expenenses, timesheet, and project tracking. We've streamlined processes to make our accounting department work smoother, and our project reporting better!

"Specialized software for the architectural/engineering industry"

What do you like best?

One stop shop from opportunity to project. Tracks everything from the cost to getting t the project to "what-if" scenarios to managing resources as well as project and human resources management.

What do you dislike?

Can be a bit overwhelming. Especially reporting. Too many options can create information overload.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take advantage of training and user groups. Don't struggle on your own.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Primarily used for billing projects. Timekeeping and payroll models as well.

"One Stop Data Collection and Mining/Refining"

What do you like best?

It is a straightforward interface that allows all ages and levels of employees, those that are technologically savvy and those who are just performing data entry level updates, to get the needed information into the system. This minimizes the need for technical support involvement.

What do you dislike?

I'm not sure of all the filters and restricted access we have in place for the data entry and data mining as I typically contact our in-house "Vision Support" team. And, when I copy, paste, and update an entry, it moves down on my list of literally 100's of projects, and I have to go digging to find where it went from the top of the list where it was when it needed me to add information. Also, I like Vision's expense and timesheet modules when I used them at a previous firm, so I dislike we don't use them where I currently work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

No knowing the cost for smaller scale installations, I would say this is a good and user friendly platform for firms looking to integrate information, timekeeping and expenses vs. a custom database solution.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows our company to keep current track of all the necessary info on projects and employees for use in marketing and proposals. Quick searches allow us to find semi-parsed information that we can then weed out and narrow down to provide the info we need.

"Great data extraction, could use an update to the screens and overall searches"

What do you like best?

I like the way that Deltek Vision captures data at the right level for engineering. However, it does seem outdated compared to other softwares that I've used.

What do you dislike?

The overall look of the screens and the use of the reporting could be smoother. In addition, the invoicing is a bit difficult if you are looking at what has been invoiced historically. There is no simply way to track back if you have written off or held effort.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is great for engineering. Be patient, though, as the learning curve is pretty long.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to run great basic reports to help me analyze data from many different angles.

"Easy to Use and Implement"

What do you like best?

I'm a new user to Vision (10 months using). I like the navigation panel and how it is easy to find different items. The transaction center and accounting functions are easy to use if you have an accounting background. Advanced features like workflows are great since they are ment to make your job more efficient. iaccess is great for non accountants. The visual interface if appealing to more visual users like designers.

What do you dislike?

Certain items aren't easily accessible. You have to use search fields and run reports to get information. The help menu isn't that great but there is a lot more information on the Customer Care Website. The interface is difficult for non accountants to get used to.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great part about Deltek is that the product is being improved.

What do you like best?

Deltek Vision is loaded with tons of configuration options that allow me to tailor the software to meet our business needs.

What do you dislike?

To get the most bang for your buck, you should have at least one person in-house that's dedicated to becoming a Deltek Vision subject matter expert.

"Vision is our company ERP system"

What do you like best?

The customization you can do in the software which allows you to increase productivity.

The mobile apps which allows people to have info handy without to access the company's network.

The report tools and dashboards.

What do you dislike?

* The costly training to learn the software. It's a great software but to learn how to use it and get your ROI as soon as possible you need training and it's expensive.

* Also, I've found that documentation is not properly reviewed. I found a document for version 7.5 that had something that I wanted to implement and it resulted that Deltek forgot to remove it from the documentation. That feature was deprecated in Version 6.X.

* There is no too much information about how to upgrade Vision specially if you'd like to do the upgrade using your internal IT staff.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Option to customize software to your needs. The ability to create dashboards with the info needed. The integration of the CRM module helps a lot.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Currently, Vision is being used more as an Accounting software but we went through an effectiveness review process and we know that making the proper changes, training people and providing more access to users, will increase productivity and will allow end users to have the information available at any time.

"Steep learning curve but great for projects"

What do you like best?

I like the reporting abilities Deltek offers. Once I learnt how to do custom fields and how to effectively export reports it was very easy to pull project and people reports.

The software has a wealth of information and good degree of customization available.

What do you dislike?

Deltek vision is very "clicker- intense" meaning that you have to click on fields with mouse which is very old school. We are on the 6.1 version due to the complexities associated with upgrading the database.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ensure your accounting team is closely aligned with the project team because it is a big difference in how accounting is done.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are working in consulting, so many reports we needs are project driven. It is easy to find costs associated for projects.

"Vision Review 2018"

What do you like best?

One place to collect all information. We started with the Accounting module and then added the Resource Planning Module which we depend on very heavily for planning our weekly staff workloads and for reporting. I have had resistance getting buy-in but after attending the Deltek Insight Conference last Fall I really feel that Deltek is on the right path. However, I have discovered from past experience with Deltek that they seem too focused on adding new features without fixing some of the major and common issues within the program.

What do you dislike?

Some items don't link well, reporting options are not standard

"Good choice for focus on project management- US-based companies"

What do you like best?

Project management features are strong:

- Cost and revenue by project with detail drill-downs

- Project resource management is strong with utilization and search features

- Ability to manage project charges on a big scale- many transactions at once

- Invoicing features with user-defined templates are a neutral - slightly less functionality than industry leaders

What do you dislike?

- Financial reporting features are limited

- Technology innovation seems dated (mobile apps, workflow)

- Global accounting and consolidation features are limited

- User interface is fine in the iAccess modules, but cumbersome in the core Vision modules

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider this software as a strong contender if you need project management. As a general ledger, payables or CRM application - fair rating.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Project management - reporting, workplans, staffing and billing. Application is geared to project management with a GL/ AP/ AR system as a secondary feature.

"The Planning module is great for staying on track with original plan."

What do you like best?

Planning module and how only employees or are on the project plan can bill the plan - makes for less errors.

What do you dislike?

The one thing I dislike about Deltek Vision is how in order to configure something you must make changes in multiple areas for it to work.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows us to keep track of everything that has to do with our projects in one place. Set up automatic reporting to notify project teams about project status.

I like how straightforward and easy this program is to use. It makes tracking my time each week very easy, especially when I charge to multiple projects each week.

What do you dislike?

I wish it were a little easier to switch back and forth between different pay periods.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It takes seconds to input and submit my time card each week, allowing more time to work on projects.

"Starship Enterprise"

What do you like best?

I enjoy being Captain Kirk of the Starship Enterprise. I have all project information at my fingertips and can quickly and accurately respond to client inquiries - better yet - all of my team members have that same ability so we are able to offer seamless responses throughout the day! This ability makes us the heroes of our universe!

What do you dislike?

I understand that some things - like start and end dates in Planning will be updated when we update - I am anxiously awaiting this feature.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our engineers are often in the field or out at meetings. When a client calls looking for project information, anyone on the office team can review information in real time and offer data and potential solutions. This makes everyone look good and keeps our clients happy.

"Deltek Vision System Administrator"

What do you like best?

I love that Vision gives me the ability to store and classify our data in a searchable platform. I appreciate the relationship between info centers that allows me an insight into our company's information.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that I cannot change static fields. I wind up creating more user defined fields that closely resemble what's already there to elaborate information to the level we need.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have a plan. An extensive plan and overestimate implementation time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Until Vision I hand keyed all information into Excel spreadsheets and corralled data into various folders. It's was painful and time consuming.

"An Expert's Opinion"

What do you like best?

Does so much for the A&E industry. Very flexible. Buy what you need when you need it. iAccess has been well received by users.

What do you dislike?

The price for flexibility is complex setup and use. Need more videos on training so users can learn at their own pace. This should be included in the core application and not a add on.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great product. Hold off on moving to DPS Deltek For Professional Services until all the kinks are worked out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is a complete package, dependent upon the options purchased. Increases cash flows, revenue assurance, ERP, multi company, multi currency, automates many routine tasks.

"Rewarding to Utilize an ERP"

What do you like best?

I like the customization that is possible through Deltek Vision. We've been able to build info centers that link to our essential company functions and then be able to report of data that used to be tracked through spreadsheets. The workflows are an amazing way to add user benefits too! We are utilizing workflows to autopopulate fields and processes.

What do you dislike?

I find the Administrator side "tricky" at times, but also understand the robust functionality makes this part of the issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend consulting with a 3rd party consultant for an implementation. Our company is currently going through a re-implementation and learning so many things that would have aided our business processes sooner!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the business problem of having more "real time" information and having it centralized. With multiple office location across states, information was housed on different servers, machines, etc. With centralizing data within Vision, we are creating consistency in our data gathering, storing, utilization across the company and also creating consistent processes.

"Vision Review"

What do you like best?

Good core package, but one of the most useful features is the ability to import data into the system We just did underwent our annual salary adjustments in ADP. The ability to import the new job cost rates into the employee info center saved us hours. HR/Payroll provided the new rates in a .csv file format, and it took less than 5 minutes to import new rates for over 400 employees using only employee number and rate,

FANTASTIC!

What do you dislike?

Vision contains valuable information but it isn't easy to extract that information without running multiple reports, download into excel, and then manipulate the data you are trying to consolidate on one report. Example of that would be Utilization ratios and GL report. Our company has developed a scorecard that they use for metrics that aren't available in one data dump

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Benefits that we've realized is greater visibility into project revenue to evaluate profitability,.

"Useful, but not terribly user friendly"

What do you like best?

I like that everything is in one place.

The experience is not intuitive and the interface is not aesthetically pleasing. I can figure out my way around it, but not all of my coworkers are. It's also fairly ugly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look at other options first.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're working on hit rate currently. I've realized the reporting benefits.

"We currently use Vision and Vision CRM"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that everything is linked together. You can easily look up things. Also, like that you can easily build user defined info centers and fields to help with non standard processes.

What do you dislike?

Some of the limitations. Hopefully Deltek is working on these in coming upgrades.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Vision as our total solutions package. We try to put everything in Vision before looking at other programs.

"Powerful resource with UI problems"

What do you like best?

If used correctly, Vision can be a very powerful tool for Customer Relationship Management (and more). Useful features include the info center, calendar/activities, time&expense reporting, utlities, and training materials. While CRM is where vision is most robust, the 'best' feature is reporting.

What do you dislike?

The user interface leaves a lot to be desired. It is fairly confusing to use and requires significant training to become a power user. The search function is not always reliable. It can be difficult to get buy-in due to these issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider options that tout easy-of-use and intuitive features.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

CRM and accounting are the main features utilized.

Wish the software was a bit more intuitive for the novice user.

"Not as user friendly as expected"

What do you like best?

Simple layout and colors. Not fancy. Easy to read when you find things.

What do you dislike?

Just isn't very modern looking. Kinda dull. Takes a bit of searching to find things I need.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It doesn't really change much. No big updates in many years.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a user, not an administrator. I find it semi-user friendly, I have no opinion on it beyond that.

"Adaptable ERP option"

What do you like best?

The database is adaptable to many different environments.

What do you dislike?

Search limitations across different info centers. Example: Merging employee and project data would be beneficial in some reporting.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We utilize Accounting, Projects, Time & Expense, and Opportunities. This allows many departments to rely on the same database as their primary resource.

"Deltek Vision Review"

What do you like best?

I like the ability to search for previous jobs. You can browse by any of the fields, or just search by a specific word or number.

What do you dislike?

The expense reports are not that user friendly. It takes to many steps to assign a document to an expense line.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make a clean switch. And take the time to set it up the way you think you want it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have streamlined our time sheets. Cut down on paper usage and storage. The problems we have solved is the expense to store pay role records,
