Deltek Costpoint is the most frustrating and clunkiest software I've ever used, and I've been using software for 30 years. The interface appears to have been developed before the internet and HTML and does not appear to use any modern widgets made for HTML. Every button click or menu selection requires a pause while something else loads. Our employees waste much time trying to figure out (what should be) simple tasks, and I've spoken with nobody in our company that likes the software. We've had trainings on Costpoint, but people still have issues constantly.

Read full review Pros I love how you can cut a check and it opens a PDF version so it can be saved for retention at a later date if needed. I love how you can research vendor history different ways. It allows you to input a range or just enter one at a time. I also love that there are tons of reports that can be run to help with any projects. Read full review Very stable product. Some of its weaknesses are also its strengths. The lack of web services seems to actually increase stability. No software vendor in this space is perfect. Lawson does perform as advertised. Again, a weakness of this (limited functionality) is a hidden strength as well. In software there is a complexity/feature tradeoff. Where Lawson lacks in features, it does give you a more simple setup for your organization. Read full review Cons Customer Care - this is probably the one area that needs the most work. Quality Control Testing - if this area had a higher level of detail prior to releasing updates, it might mitigate the number of patches required for customers. Cloud Based Product doesn't work for every customer. Get multiple references before considering moving to the cloud offering. Read full review Not intuitive at all, difficult to learn. System is archaic, seems to be largely unchanged since the early 2000's. Reports are all in PDF form, which for financial reporting purposes is tedious to turn back into Excel sheets.

It is the most unintuitive system I have ever used. No one understands it right off the bat and the documentation doesn't help much.

This is a highly configurable product. Where all available support provided by [Information] is very good and exceeds our expectations! The investment in this product by Infor continues to be significant and is showing results! Infor is going a long way and is here to stay! No doubt about that!

The software is so huge and clunky that I wouldn't know how to ask for support. Here is my example of support needed: "Hello, I'm filling out my timesheet like I have been doing every day for years, and suddenly this error message came up that says "Error: 6HX7: PLC not available". I just made that up as an example of the cryptic error messages, but what is that telling me?

The support is satisfactory, given the large user base of the product. We had no issues to meet our reporting deadlines with Lawson. The organizational support team internally are well trained and hence only on exceptional basis issues are escalated to Lawson support team. We had no negative experience so far with the support of Lawson.

Lawson is comparable to the other ERP's I have used. Similar functionality and interface. Usability is comparable.
Read full review Return on Investment Costpoint has made it possible for our business to get our invoices paid quickly and on time Costpoint has made it possible for our business to get a ISO audits cleared every year Costpoint has made it possible for our business to always setup projects in a standardized manner that either meets or goes beyond the industry standards. Read full review I wish Infor M3 (formerly Lawson Intentia) were more detailed. But, this actually may be a weakness of my employer and not Infor M3 (formerly Lawson Intentia).
