Likelihood to Recommend

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

It is very helpful for budgeting and reporting. I love how easy it is to automate reports and presentations. It can be more difficult to plan specific activities. It feels more high-level than activity-level. It shows totals rather than individual transactions (either past or future transactions).

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

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

  • Web-based system which eliminates the need to purchase new software. System is accessible anywhere as long as there is internet access.
  • Its features provide for good planning, budgeting, and forecasting.
  • The ability to create customized reports is a very nice touch - we are able to share this across our organization.

  • 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

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

  • For reforecasting (e.g. doing 3 + 9 or 6 + 6), it would be useful to do constant currency analysis for versions that are "hybrid" (i.e. contain actual and plan data). At the moment, the virtual version functionality only works properly for actual or plan only versions.
  • We are a company going through a process of changing financial years and trying to plan over multiple financial periods of different lengths. I have found it very difficult to handle this in the system elegantly.
  • It would be good if there were more "template" models for various common business scenarios (e.g. sets of standard modeled sheets available for personnel and fixed assets) or sets of standard cubes for revenue or projects.

  • 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.

Usability

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company 7.5
Based on 76 answers
My rating of 9 is really a composite of two ratings. For the users, I would give it a 10. But for administrators, I would give it more of an 8. That is because there is definitely a learning curve for the admins. It has a fair level of complexity (which is necessary), especially in the formulas and certain types of sheets. It is a product worth mastering, but it does take time to learn.

Support requests are always handled promptly and resolved favourably.Many user support requests arise during initial deployment and use and often represent questions relating to best methods or how to approach their particular situation, which we gladly assist with as we provide the appropriate skills transfer training and assistance.As clients become more knowledgeable in working with the product suite then they tend not to ask many questions.

Alternatives Considered

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

Other than Excel, we did not look at other systems. Key for us was also a bridge or link to our current ERP system, Intacct. I also researched retention of customers with Adaptive. I could not find any vendors who left Adaptive. Strong retention.

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
