Deltek, Inc.
It is well suited to connecting customer relationship databases and a project lifecycle. Business development people and other personnel should be able to get good use out of it in their daily jobs and functions. It is helpful to keep a record of ongoing projects and new pursuits among the team.

There are many lacking features so if your company is looking to grow, FinancialForce will not be able to scale along with your company. If your company is already past its growth stage and there aren't too many transactions to record, then FinancialForce may be suited for your company.

  • The revenue recognition module is very basic. The system does not create deferred revenue waterfall schedules.
  • FinancialForce does not have a way of handling prepaid items where the expense gets deferred into the future.
  • Although FinancialForce can create invoices, there is no way to connect payments to the invoice in an automated fashion. When payments gets entered into the system, they must manually be matched against invoices. It is not good for scalability.

Usability
Deltek, Inc.
It is ok to use; it is not the easiest to use in terms of usability and user-friendliness but it is not the worst. It still feels somewhat outdated. Many cloud options are cleaner or look more modern. But it is good enough and you should be able to get the hang of it.

I would rate Deltek VantagePoint highly in terms of the overall support. You can receive support any time you need it and there is a representative from Deltek assigned to your account so that you can always get the help when you need it. Sometimes, they want to go more in-depth than I would like, however.

BQE Core. I think that BQE Core is definitely harder to use, and has a lot of features atleast from the users perspective that dont seem entirely neccesary. Deltek is very straight forward and easy to use.

Infinitely better. We are much happier with FinancialForce ERP rather than NetSuite. This allows us so much more flexibility and growth potential. There is a good chance we will use other functionality of FinancialForce in the future to stay within the same ecosystem. We selected FinancialForce ERP mostly because of its compatibility with Salesforce, as that is the hub of our business applications.

  • Implementing FinancialForce stalled the growth of the accounting department. Because of the limitations, a lot of manual work had to be done in the systems and many schedules were kept out of the system. Instead of focusing on process improvements or, the accounting team had to do tasks that could have easily been solved with a more sophisticated ERP.
