It is very well suited for Project Accounting - we have thousands of Project codes in the system.
I wish it were easier to make changes to data already entered. You have to jump through hoops to make any changes or corrections and timing is everything. Read full review

Read full review Pros Deltek is a very integrated system for accounting purposes. It stores documents as support for postings (e.g. AP invoices) so you can easily access the source information. Time tracking for our consultants is a must and Deltek has a good platform for tracking time and for accounting for time. Deltek has the ability to run almost any kind of report that you could possibly think of! There are fields for almost everything and if there aren't specific fields you can add them. Read full review Very stable product. Some of its weaknesses are also its strengths. The lack of web services seems to actually increase stability. No software vendor in this space is perfect. Lawson does perform as advertised. Again, a weakness of this (limited functionality) is a hidden strength as well. In software there is a complexity/feature tradeoff. Where Lawson lacks in features, it does give you a more simple setup for your organization. Read full review Cons Deltek Vision's use of the desktop browser interfaces could use some major upgrades. It's not very user-friendly. When a field is left blank it would prevent the user from saving the timesheet but would not clearly inform the user where the error has occurred. Deltek Vision should provide a simple method to print summaries like have its own built-in pdf export program instead of relying on a 3rd party program like Adobe. Read full review Not intuitive at all, difficult to learn. System is archaic, seems to be largely unchanged since the early 2000's. Reports are all in PDF form, which for financial reporting purposes is tedious to turn back into Excel sheets. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
Because we are looking to upgrade to the next software level of Deltek.

It's on the verge of being awesome. Right now it's a matter of money -- if you have the money to hire consultants round the clock, yeah this is awesome.

This is a highly configurable product. Where all available support provided by [Information] is very good and exceeds our expectations! The investment in this product by Infor continues to be significant and is showing results! Infor is going a long way and is here to stay! No doubt about that!

The support is satisfactory, given the large user base of the product. We had no issues to meet our reporting deadlines with Lawson. The organizational support team internally are well trained and hence only on exceptional basis issues are escalated to Lawson support team. We had no negative experience so far with the support of Lawson.

We have used Deltek Vision and previous versions (names) of the product since the early 1990's. We are engaged in the system and are committed to the continued use of the product. I have long supported the value added to our company and benefits realized by our users.

Lawson is comparable to the other ERP's I have used. Similar functionality and interface. Usability is comparable.
Read full review Return on Investment We went from using a DOS-based accounting system that all the management had to go to Accounting for a weekly printout of status reports, and there wasn't much visibility into the network. Deltek Vision gave our PMs and management information at their fingertips, without having to wait on someone else to get the info. A lot of quality control was handled outside of an electronic system through Microsoft Excel forms. With Deltek Vision's user-defined functions, we were able to bring those functions into a system that could then be reported on, send automatic reminders, and create dashboards. This has been hugely beneficial in not losing sight of action items etc. Read full review I wish Infor M3 (formerly Lawson Intentia) were more detailed. But, this actually may be a weakness of my employer and not Infor M3 (formerly Lawson Intentia). Read full review ScreenShots
