AceProject

It is well suited if you have a specific work force or are working in a production or an assembly line style environment. It is also well suited if you have small teams that have to get out a certain amount of product in set periods of time. AceProjects is great for monitoring how long each individual spent on their specific task and subsequently how long the team took to complete their work.

Deltek Ajera

Ajera is great for small firms in the AE industry. I would not use Ajera if you are not in the AE industry or if you are a very large company. It is the perfect software for those small companies that can not get the information they want from QuickBooks type softwares.

Pros

  • Time Tracking
  • Resource allocation
  • Easy to implement, small adoption curve.

  • Widgets are the best feature of Ajera. Designers can make tiny reports for the entire company, or for one or two individuals. These little reports are the first things that the employee sees when they log in. Viewers of the reports are able to filter, sort, group, print or export the widget without impacting the other users. Deltek has been releasing new features that allow the editing of data in widgets. You can now create new projects or edit timesheets from the widgets.
  • Credit card importing and credit card reconciliation in Ajera has greatly decreased time spent by administration. You can import credit card transactions from your credit cards. It saves on data entry, and it is easy to see what receipts you are missing when you get the statement.
  • Mobile timesheets and expense reports help engineers or other users enter their time and expenses as they are on the go. They can take pictures or receipts or submit their timesheet from home.
  • The Project Command Center is a one stop fountain of information. Everything the project manager wants to know about a project can be found here. You can also add custom fields that allow you to tract addition information.

Cons

  • Expand on data tracking
  • Improve report generation
  • Break out from just being a time clock manager.

  • The complaint I here from our employees is often that there is a lot of Data entry. However, looking at the levels of data entry we saw when shopping for software, Ajera was one of the least.
  • Custom fields in Ajera are great. But it would be nice if there was more options for how they appear on the page.
  • About once a year there is a big update to Ajera with new features. Usually right after the update, there are a few glitches in the software. However, Deltek always releases corrections very quickly.

Alternatives Considered

We have used Quickbooks and Excel in the past. Ajera is the next step for the AE Industry who needs more information from their software. We were able to move all of our Excel reports into Ajera. We do still export to Excel from time to time. Ajera is a database software. If you are familiar with databases, you understand that there are some things that are simpler to do in Excel

Return on Investment

  • We were able to track our production teams work and refine our methods to improve deliverable dates.
  • Once our staff reached a certain size the capability of the software began to lag. Diminishing returns.
  • The lack of reporting features made data regression and extrapolation difficult.

  • Employees are able to send invoices immediately when clients request them.
  • Administration has had more time to handle our growth from time saved from credit card and bank reconciliation.
  • We are able to get a snapshot of every project quickly and instantly see where we are on a project,
