Deltek Collaboration is best suited for companies and employees that are needing to work closely with other people. Working with agencies, for example, can take so much time waiting to hear back on the status of a project or getting files, so when you can have it all in one place it saves a lot of time and effort.

Usability
Abstract
Abstract has a difficult learning curve. If a feature-branch workflow is new to you, then it will take some getting used to. They make a lot of updates to the interface and these feature releases get ahead of their documentation. They rely heavily on an excellent customer support team and are present on various Slack channels to help design professionals with issues.

Support Rating
Abstract
Abstract by nature is complex and has to respond to whatever changes in Sketch. So there are frequent issues. Support can be slow to respond and are not always helpful, but they are quick to find and patch the bugs. Overall, it's not the best support, but it hasn't been detrimental.

Before Deltek, we had just communicated around projects through Slack since it was free. It did work well for communication and you could share files, but it is not nearly as robust as Deltek Collaboration. It was not easy to look back and find necessary files, and the collaboration didn't work nearly as well.
