Deltek Ajera

For small to medium engineering and architecture firms, Ajera appears to be the right size. Beyond the engineering software, Deltek Ajera has all the features a small to medium firm will need for smooth operation. AR, AP, Payroll, reporting, project management are all in one package. We chose to self-host because the licensing was more cost effective for us, but cloud hosting is also available.

QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise

QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions would be great for a company that is buying products and just reselling them as-is. It is great at keeping track of quantities remaining from previous purchases and time periods, adding new inventory purchased, and subtracting inventory sold. It would also work well for a company that purchased materials to manufacture items for stock, and then sold those stock items. QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions does not work very well for manufacturing of one-off or custom products as each item has to be "built", whether it is 1 item or 100 items. It also does not have an easy way to account for scrap or materials damaged in the manufacturing process.

Pros

Deltek Ajera

  • 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.

  • Quickbook's user interface is incredibly user-friendly. Non-Accountants are able to pick up the system relatively easy . They should be able to enter transactions without fully understanding the accounting.
  • There is a lot of material on the internet if you need help how to use Quickbooks. They have various forums in which you can find the answers since there is bound to be another person that had already experienced your problem.
  • Quickbooks has developed a lot of integration with other 3rd party software. For example, we use Avalara to assess sales tax for our invoices. There are APIs built so Quickbooks can send the relevant invoice information to Avalara to produce sales tax.

Cons

Deltek Ajera

  • Would be nice if the reports would have more creativity with the ability to add more charts and graphics.
  • The user interface for time sheets could be more user-friendly.
  • The user interface for expense sheets could be more user-friendly.

QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise

  • Not Cloud Based: In order to use QuickBooks Enterprise as a cloud based type product one needs to pay for hosting and have the product/data hosted which will run into extra expense. Additionally, this workaround is not a true cloud solution.
  • Operating System Compatibility: When upgrading operating systems on user workstations, more problems are prone to occur. There is sometimes a disconnect between Microsoft and Intuit in compatibility.
  • Expensive Upgrades: This is not the type of accounting product that you can easily use for years without upgrading. Thus, one needs to build this into their operating budget.

We've been using QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions from when the business started, 11 years ago. I don't see us changing programs any time soon as it is working pretty well for us now. It would be extremely time consuming to start from scratch with a new accounting or inventory management program.

I like the QuickBooks Enterprise edition so much I moved my company to it this year. I like the overall functionality of the program and I am very familiar with the user interface which makes my job easier. One of the things I dislike about the online version it is not modeled after the desktop edition and I have a hard time getting around in the program.

QB is a good and reliable system. We probably should have explore the other modules rather that jump in to the conclusion that we needed a new ERP.

Very rare do I call the Quickbooks Enterprise Solutions support staff and I get a customer service associate quickly. On average, my wait time is near an hour, and at times even longer. After spending the first three minutes discussing my problem, they then begin to poke and prod around, sometimes the questions continue. But 80% of the time, the problem is over their head and they have to escalate the issue. The only problem is this escalation arrives usually after spending forty-five minutes poking and proding around but learning nothing. In short, my experience is rarely all that well, let alone great

It is a very easy system to learn, so with the help it was even easier. QB is a good solid system, but it lacks some of the complexity other systems have. with QB you need to get additional modules to get the same functionality that other systems offer standard

easy to learn system, specially with some kind of support. Just like with any other system, things get lot easier if you have guidance to lead you in your search for answers. having said that, QB is very easy to use and very easy to teach. you wont spend much time memorizing where to click.

If you're loading QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions onto a computer that you're going to directly log into, you should be able to do it yourself. If you are going to connect to a server through a network or remote connection, you should probably have a professional IT person set it up for you.

Alternatives Considered

Deltek Ajera

The previous systems were essentially timesheet systems only with very basic accounting. It's mostly the accounting subsystem that made us select Ajera.

Also considered Sage MAS products, but QuickBooks is easier to install and maintain. It also has a more friendly and easier to use interface which keeps employees happier and spend less time training. The reporting is also more flexible and can drill down to the source transaction with a few clicks of the mouse.

It is not a fair rating because we did not invest in different modules to accommodate for business grow and complexity expansion.

Return on Investment

Deltek Ajera

  • Made accounting and payroll's jobs harder.
  • Improved visibility on project cost management and profit.
Thiago Beda, SHRM-CP | TrustRadius Reviewer

QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise

  • It has been very inefficient around budget time between August - March.
  • It is fairly efficient when it comes to entering revenue and expenses, except that certain invoices are entered in Excel spreadsheets first to obtain department allocations.
  • It has slowed down the month-end report generation due to having many of the reports created in Excel from reports / information exported from QuickBooks.
