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.

SAP ERP

SAP is an extremely integrated system. Not all companies are ready for this. Many are so used to having systems that require a lot of batch processing, giving kind of an extra cushion to allow for errors or mistakes. SAP is a live system, meaning that when you commit or transact something, it triggers the integration among all modules that touch whatever the transaction is for. An example is allowing SAP to generate purchasing documents based on the scheduled demand for production. Say someone puts in a work order and by mistake, fat fingers an extra zero on the desired quantity. This may cause SAP to purchase WAY more raw materials than you need. This is a great feature, but it can also come back to hurt you if not controlled properly.

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.

  • Integration of functions within the organization (example: warehouse releasing and inventory management with finance costing and logistics)
  • Security features are on point. Clear segregation of duties can be achieved by assigning access rights based on least privilege principle
  • Can be easily learned.
  • Roles assigned to users can be customized.

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.

SAP ERP

  • High cost of licensing, implementation & maintenance.
  • It gets complex when companies try to implement their existing business processes to Standard SAP provided business processes if it differs.
  • It is not for small/medium size businesses
  • The complete implementation process may take several years. Usually, companies take core modules of SAP ERP & implement those first.

The cost of SAP as an ERP is quite high and the switching costs associated with ERP systems are even higher. That being said moving from one ERP to another only happens once in a great while for large organizations. Those switching costs include retraining, IT hardware requirements, outside consultants and more

Once you learn how to use SAP ERP, it becomes a powerful tool for analysis and inventory management.

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

SAP ERP

SAP was found to be better suited for the manufacturing nature of our organization's business and provides robust process integrations across production, supply chain, order management, material master and inventory management. Although the user experience aspect was less than desirable, the business process consolidation outweighed this shortcoming. The cost of implementation and maintenance was higher for SAP.

Return on Investment

Deltek Ajera

  • Made accounting and payroll's jobs harder.
  • Improved visibility on project cost management and profit.

SAP ERP

  • The Coca-Cola bottlers use a multi-tenant environment, and that helps their bottom line as they share a single instance.
  • Integration back to sales enables the Bottles to be more efficient and saves costs that relate to integration to 3rd party sales applications.
  • Reduces the number of 3rd party applications, which saves on operating costs.
