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 Online Advanced

QuickBooks is great for companies who aren't fully trained on accounting or who are having problems with running their company's finances. A user needs very little training to know exactly how the software works, and the software tutorials are easy to find and very helpful. If there is a technical issue with the software it can take quite a bit of time for it to be resolved since the customer support for QuickBooks is usually slow and sometimes unresponsive.

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.

  • User access control: for reasons previously specified.
  • Automation: we're able to automate a few key workflows that help remind the staff to get things done on schedule.
  • On-demand training via the Priority Circle has proven invaluable. Staff can learn things on their own without straining IT (me) or reaching out for immediate assistance for issues.

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.

  • The UI is a bit clunky.
  • Sometimes it is hard to find specific transactions.
  • There are not a lot of bulk actions you can do.

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.

Quickbooks Online and Zoho Books are the two solutions evaluated and we have both in place with different customers. For this specific customer, Cafe Nomad LLC, there was no choice as the parent company is using Quickbooks Online and their accounting staff had the experience and knowledge of it. For a very small business, Zoho Books is a less expensive solution. Quickbooks Online, however, is a more robust platform that will be more appreciated by accounting staff.
