Likelihood to Recommend

Deltek Ajera

I think Ajera would be well suited for small to medium sized firms, especially engineering, architect, medical offices, car dealerships, and construction type firms. I think it would be less appropriate for large size firms as there would be limitations and they would need a separate platform for their marketing information (proposals, resumes, etc.). It would be much better if this information would be kept all together.

It is extremely well suited for smaller companies who are trying to manage things on their own without outsourcing too much. The program is easy to learn and doesn't require too much training time before it can be implemented. The online/cloud feature makes it even more accessible to our employees, so it's great. It would be hard for a large company to use it since it is geared towards smaller companies and the interface may become overwhelming with too many inputs/bills to manage.

  • Online banking is easy and fun to learn, and saves data-entry for those little debits/ATM's on your bank statement.
  • Invoices can be designed to look nice and emailed with a "Pay link which speeds up cash flow; a #1 concern for new businesses.
  • Save money by using the online payroll that syncs in data so you don't have to enter complicated paychecks at all.

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.

  • One regular bug I experience with the desktop app is the "shoe came untied" error. It seems to happen all the time but is usually fixed with a restart. Just a minor annoyance.
  • There is so much QB can do, it's hard to know how to use it. I'm no professional accountant so I'm not familiar with most of the reporting and functions that are useful - so better training and support for noobs would be helpful. That said, I've noticed a ton of resources, I just haven't taken advantage of them - so it's probably more user error than QB's problem - though I suppose I haven't felt that learning new things within the app are the easiest.
  • I have had a specific error where one of my banks is only importing 1 credit card, rather than all 5 of the cards on the same account. I think this is a Quickbooks error, however, it's possible it may be from the bank side. This is an issue I wish Quickbooks would help resolve.

The Mac version is OK overall. I find the Windows versions to be much more robust but Mac is quite good for Mac users. Though I think die hard Mac users should consider QuickBooks Online instead as there is a new QB for Mac app that makes using QBO much better!

I've been using the QuickBooks online version for a little over 6 months now (upgraded from Mac desktop) and I haven't had any access issues. There have been times when it was down for service/upgrade however there is always plenty of notification time given by the Quick Books Online Support team. These upgrade maintenance time frames are always over night hours and on the weekends so everything can be worked around very easily.

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.

I have not evaluated anything for many years as QB satisfies my needs and is second nature to my workflow.

Return on Investment

Deltek Ajera

  • Ajera has allowed our company to become more efficient when it comes to compiling project management reports.
  • Ajera has allowed us to become more efficient when it comes to monthly invoicing.
  • There is some initial downtime when we hire new project managers as many are not familiar with Ajera so we need to train them on the software and how to run reports, task management, budget management, etc.

  • Having familiarity with the product and Mac OS has provided me access to clients who use the Mac version.
