    Great for medium and large construction companies that have a specific salesforce.
    Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Deltek WorkBook

    My recommendation very much depends on who the colleague is. I would recommend WorkBook if it is an accountant, project manager or someone similar, and if the setup is done within WorkBook and passwords, etc. are being used within WorkBook only. I would tell IT Managers to avoid the application and think twice in terms of access management etc.

    Cosential is very intuitive for the AEC industry and has the ability to be customized for your specific needs. The reports are especially helpful, with good visual dashboards.

    My original trainer / implementation specialist was fantastic. That relationship has continued, even though I have been officially handed off to the customer service side. The customer service side seems to have higher turnover than normal, but in general they are also very supportive, although not as responsive as I might like.

    Great implementation support, but haven't had many questions since.

    Cosential is specific to the A/E industry and is the most intuitive software we found for construction.

    Return on Investment

    Cosential

    • Allowed for common tracking by business developers in different regions.
    • Helped us quantify effort.
    • Provides great reports for management.
    Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Deltek WorkBook

    • WorkBook is one of the cheaper solutions on the market, which, in the long term, gives a great ROI.
    • We have spent a lot of time on support which is a negative impact.
