Abas ERP

ABAS by far offers the most bang for the buck. We are able to handle all of our business functions through ABAS and also have additional features like Business Apps, Business Intelligence, Vendor and Customer portals, as well as many other features that many other ERP packages didn't have. It has allowed us to consolidate our software packages and also provide visibility since everything is now connected.

Deltek Costpoint

Deltek is very easy to use and I love that it has worked for all the companies I have worked for. It is structured around my workload and I never have any issues. I feel there are a couple of things that can be corrected but nothing major. I love the layout.

Pros

  • Flexibility. ABAS is fully customizable. This allows us to create a work environment that is as custom as we are. Some ERP software packages force you to adopt their methods. With ABAS we can build the system the way we want it to work.
  • Adaptable. ABAS has the ability to work with other software packages and provide a seamless connection. We use Solid Works for our engineering designs. ABAS is connected to Solid Works and this eliminates transfer errors while reducing the time it takes for engineers to load bills of material.
  • Service. ABAS has well-trained service technicians. The time it takes to get a response is minimal and the network of knowledge their support group has, helps to streamline any tasks we may present or questions we may have.

  • Costpoint is really good with providing users with a variety of accounting solutions from Project Setups to revenue recognition to Purchase orders. This software has it all under one roof.
  • Costpoint has the ability to handle large amounts of data and it neatly organize that data in the form of meaningful reports.
  • Costpoint interfaces really well with other Deltek products like Time and Expense and Cognos and makes the use of data across multiple platforms seem seamless.

Cons

  • ABAS is headquartered in Germany with a US based headquarters in Virginia. Some of the programming structures were based on European methods that differed somewhat from the way business is done in the US. ABAS-USA has worked to modify the system so that it is in tune with US business practices and has made great strides in this effort. For the average user, the structures may go unnoticed, but for the more advanced user, some of the field names that are used for advanced reporting might be in German. However, ABAS-USA has recently been updating the programming language to be fully in English.
  • Because ABAS is growing rapidly, more complex customizations might take longer to complete than normal. ABAS appears to be bringing on even more technicians to handle the increased workload so the concern is waning.

  • Costpoint can be a bit more user friendly as compared to its competitors and would therefore be easier for people to pick up
  • Costpoint also struggles to interface well with other non-Deltek owned software and provides difficult challenges to companies with large structures and organizations using multiple tools.
  • Certain tables in Costpoint can be really hard to monitor from an audit trail perspective and these row updates on the data tables are not readily accessible to front end users.

Alternatives Considered

These other software packages all have strengths but for what we were looking for in one system, to handle most of our business processes, but also allow the flexibility to be customized (without the need to be placed on a "like to have" waiting list), ABAS gave us that ability, hands down.
Josh Schroeder profile photo
Costpoint is a much more powerful tool that Unanet and is more recommend for companies that have a large size. For smaller companies, Unanet can be a good option as it provides a great user friendly experience.

Return on Investment

  • ABAS has the capability to handle many of the processes that we did on various software platforms. Since we've been able to consolidate these platforms, the cost of subscriptions, maintenance and management hasve been reduced.
  • Efficiency was a noticeable impact right from the start. In the past, reports from one system had to be loaded into another in order to provide the analysis needed for business decisions. Connections to our design software also reduced the amount of time our engineers spent manually creating bills of material and purchase requisitions.
  • The ability to see what's happening in various business functions all in one place has helped with decision making and provided the data necessary to ask the right questions when arriving at those hard decisions.

  • The additional resources provide my company and senior management with more depth to grow and add new projects.
  • Streamlining our invoicing and billing process. Makes accounting happy when invoices are sent out on time and are paid.
  • Shortening our closing and provides report potential for project management with more detailed analysis of reports.
