- Tech Details
- The ability to build out your own user-defined fields, grids, and even whole Info Centers is a huge plus. We can build out what we need in-house, without needing to engage outside consultants for most needs.
- The ability to create both user-initiated and scheduled workflows allows us to add intelligence to our actions within the system. We have weekly scheduled reports going out to the various levels of our organization, as well as workflows to trigger multiple field updates, alerts, emails, etc. to keep necessary people on the path and informed.
- We have had the system for several years and have modified it to fit our needs. Over the years, Deltek Vision has rolled out several updates that closely mimic our modifications. However, the testing of their new updates is not typically stellar. I have to open cases to flag inconsistencies or bugs with new items, even years after they have been released. With them focusing on getting Vantagepoint up and running, those bugs are pushed to the back burner, and they can't give me dates on when they will be fixed, so we continue to use our modifications instead of their available options.
- Their CRM system will have improved functionality in the new Vantagepoint system. Still, it hasn't been able to interact with Outlook to utilize the contacts, clients, or activities (calendar) across networks. This has been a massive ask from our sales force. We have yet to gauge the new functions and how well they work in Vantagepoint.
- Deltek Vision is designed with engineering and architecture firms in mind, so for their needs, it is very well suited. You have a lot of ways to track your projects high level and very detailed reports at your fingertips without having to go to the Accounting department every time you need new numbers. You can also see all invoices etc. if you have granted that access to the PMs. You are also able to get very detailed with your security by a person, as well as role-specific. However, when you have an employee wearing multiple hats, it is hard to grant them access to everything they need in one scenario, while not allowing that access in another.
- They have tried to beef up their scheduling functionality. Still, we haven't used it in a long time because when customers ask for scheduling, they specifically ask for Primavera in the RFQ's, so having this huge scheduling platform in Deltek Vision hasn't been all that useful.
- Line by line expense reports, easy to upload receipts.
- Only a few steps to submit a time sheet.
- User interface is dated looking.
- Difficult to see project names- they get cut off and you can't expand or scroll to view.
Deltek Vision is being used by our entire organization, from the President & CEO to the file clerk. We do Project Accounting in our line of work, so every single employee completes a timesheet each week. I am the Payroll Manager and my experience involves entering New Hires, Terminations, Temps as well as overseeing the entire Time Sheet Process and entering all Payroll Related Journal Entries and Reconciliations. In general, having all employees complete a timesheet each week has the same issues you would run into using any timekeeping system - getting employees to enter their time and getting managers to Approve their time. The ease with which it integrates with ADP is fabulous. Once we post our timesheets, we just export to ADP and are able to run various reports in both Deltek and ADP to reconcile the hours pulled. The only downside I find with using Deltek, is that there is no simple way to make corrections should an employee or manager reach out to us after we have Posted their timesheet. Also, if we find an error on our end that needs correcting, the Time Sheet Correction process is very tedious and cumbersome. I have been told it is this way with Deltek, and is not just the way our Company is set up - but I don't know that for a fact. For example, after reconciling ADP to Deltek after my last payroll, I found two employees who had a variance. To correct it, I had to take the following steps: 1) make sure they didn't have a current week's timesheet and if they did, I needed to delete it, so that their timesheet was in "missing" status for the current week, then 2) do a Time Sheet Correction for each week involved, by reversing out the time they had entered - making sure to reverse exactly as it had been entered, including all of the Notes - which can be very detailed in our company. Then, 3) wait for the Controller to Approve that timesheet correction entry, so I could Post it. 4) Once the first timesheet correction is posted, I can make the correction in Deltek that caused the error in the first place and 5) then do a second timesheet correction by entering the positive information for the two previous weeks - including all the Notes involved. 6) Wait for the approval and then Post it. Entering Journal Entries is fairly easy, as there is an upload option. And Reconciling Payroll Accounts is very straight forward. I also like the Reporting capabilities, including the List View option and then Exporting to Excel to manipulate data as needed. I have used several Accounting Software programs in my past jobs, including PeopleSoft, SAP, and Aderant and I find Deltek Vision stacks up well.
- Ease of exporting Time Sheet data to ADP.
- There are lots of good reports available.
- Ease of Uploading Journal Entry information from an Excel spreadsheet saved as a Tab Delimited file.
- Correcting a time sheet that has already been posted is very tedious.
- Wish there was an online resource when I have a questions.
- Business development customer database.
- Interacts well with other software.
- Terrible interface.
- The mobile app could use work.
- 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.
- The user interface of Deltek Vision is less than desirable. It is clunky, hard to learn, and cumbersome to navigate between. Deltek Vision is transitioning to a complete online platform which we have started to transition to, and they have made that "prettier" but the functionality isn't as great, so far.
- While there are lots of reports and fields that can be run, finding how to run or create the report that you are wanting, can be very challenging. Reports are broken out into categories and sometimes you want to see 2 different fields that Deltek hasn't put in the same category, and you can't do that. So there are times where I have to run two different reports, export, and then do vlookups or other comparisons to combine the information.
- Deltek Vision has to be run off of a PC. It does not work on a Mac OS. Some firms may not mind that but as a Mac-based firm, accounting is forced to be the only PC's.
- Deltek Vision does an excellent job of providing various methods to input time on various projects. It supports the web browser on the desktop and apps on various smartphones.
- Deltek Vision accesses project data from a single database. So various project information can be recalled for review.
- Deltek Vision can be implemented from the cloud so we don't have to spend time managing an on-premise server to maintain the software.
- 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.
- Keeps a very detailed account of all accounting activity and provides the capability for reporting in regards to monthly activity
- Provides a place for timesheets and expenses reports for each employee
- Keeps all information about employees in one place
- Gives space to integrate various departments into one place for across the board information sharing
- Small intricacies that can be improved on a data entry level.
- Easy to navigate and search for things
- Great cost accounting
- Setting up proposals can be extremely extensive in the beginning
- Easier ways to implement documents
- Tracking detailed time that is tied to programs (we have hundreds of programs)
- Reporting - the reporting is robust with several options
- Access levels - certain people in the company can only access certain information so we can keep employee data confidential
- Mac users have a different view from PC users and it is not as robust as what you can do on a PC.
- You can only access the platform through Internet Explorer on a PC, which is an outdated browser not a lot of employees use for anything else.
- User interface is a bit outdated, it could use a refresh.
- Deltek vision is an excellent project cost accounting for any service industry where people are your product.
- It was specifically designed for the A/E industry so not square pegs in round holes.
- The implicit posting process helps when your resources may be limited to less than hard core accounting staff.
- As DPS comes online this will be fixed but currently the reliance on Internet Explorer can be problematic.
- Resource planning isn't as intuitive as it could be.
- The links developed between clients, contacts, jobs, employees, and activities ... and opportunities are very nice
- We are able to easily configure the info centers (data tables) to meet our business model and policy
- We are integrated with systems outside of Deltek Vision. We integrate and import (nightly) with data from our financial management system. We are also integrated with a third party intranet tool. Very easily done with the right staff on hand.
- Users complain that it is difficult to use, cumbersome
- Reporting and query functions are powerful but not for casual users
- The entire platform is changing over the next 18 months. Which means I will totally have to re-do all my documentation and training materials and provide enterprise re-training. This is like going from an apple to a pizza - 100% overhaul. as the administrator, not looking forward to it.
- Very robust in accounting funtions
- Dashboards for quick access
- Integrates with some 3rd party software
- Not flexible with the program
- Communication of known defects
- Better for the end user who only does time and expenses
- Deltek Vision is excellent at linking related content. You can start at a client, and jump to contacts, opportunities and projects.
- Scheduled reporting - let Vision work FOR you. Schedule the reports and move on to other important tasks.
- Search - Deltek Vision searches can be simple to complicated SQL statements.
- A strength and weakness is the power of Deltek Vision. The learning curve can be steep.
- Security - in a timeframe where ransomware is everywhere - additional security measures are essential.
- Reporting across info centers is available yet minimal. ODBC access to the database through Excel has allowed additional reporting.
- Integrates with platforms such as Deltek GovWin IQ.
- Modular, configurable dashboard views.
- Proposal and opportunity stage tracking.
- Intuitiveness of interface.
- Could add more integrations e.g. DiscoverOrg, Business Intelligence and Marketing Automation tools.
- Mobile capabilities.
- Deltek Vision tracks project information well and the users can easily see the project financial information.
- Employee time and expenses are easy to enter using Deltek Vision core. Having the ability to enter and review detailed timesheets is a great feature.
- A relatively new feature in Deltek Vision is being able to upload transaction backup documents. The transaction backup documents are also available in reporting. This feature has saved us countless hours of research.
- Deltek Vision's CRM app definitely has room for improvement. The app is hard to use. It also doesn't include leads, which seems strange for a CRM program. We have stopped using it.
- The Deltek Vision inventory reporting module could use some improvement. Being able to select transaction dates would be incredibly helpful.
- Project Planning
- A lot of project managers and staff other than finance or accounting do not find it user-friendly.
- Project planning currently does not have interaction with the main program for updating information.
- The Deltek Vision Time & Expense feature is easy to teach and use and with the new iAccess feature employees can enter their time and expense reports from anywhere.
- Deltek Vision has a ton of built-in reports and the availability to customize even more. The reporting is easily downloaded into PDF form or Excel which makes each report more versatile.
- I would like to see more information on how to set up features in Deltek. There is quite a bit of information you can get on how to use a feature once it is up and going, but not a lot of information you can easily get on how to start from scratch.
- Easy to use web based application
- Provides info centers for all departments that cross connect to keep everyone on the same page
- Customizable for your industry and workflow processes
- Provided data in real time
- Scheduled reporting that shows the metrics you need to run a business
- Need technical expertise to setup correctly
- The web-based interface needs improvements/updated look
- The time sheet and expense entering are very detailed and users can log time from iAccess if they are out of the office as well as upload to receipts straight into vision.
- It works great as a billing system. it's pretty straight forward and being able to run batches or also single invoices depending on your need is helpful.
- It has a wide variety of reporting and you can also customize report to drill down and pull the info you need.
- It can be difficult for new users and somewhat overwhelming.
- You need to be familiar with customizing reports to be able to get what you want. The default reports don't usually provide what information is needed.
- I really hate that we still have to use internet explorer to access vision.
- It is a very detailed time and attendance system that works well for our engineering based business
- It works well for our accounting department as a billing system.
- It has many reporting functions to track our projects to let us know where we are on our budgets.
- I understand that is it is not an HR tool but I wish it had an HR function to it so I wouldn't have to buy other software to get what I need as far as HRIS and recruiting needs.
- While the reporting is good sometimes it takes me a time or two to run the report to get the data I want. Maybe easier reporting features.
- Accurate data
- Unified location to find benefits information
- Multiple uses
- User-friendly performance
- User-friendly design
- Central location for all project billing data.
- Integrated with staff forecasting software to help plan staffing needs.
- We were able to collect project descriptions for integration into resumes so that they are current.

- The help was weak. Training was required to fully use the software.
- Formatting and printing could be more user-friendly.
- Tracks labor and expenses at the project, department, and staff level.
- Has a mobile application for staff working at project sites.
- Extensive reporting capabilities.
- Default reports are not intuitive. Most users will need to personalize reports to make them more useful.
- Cumbersome start up procedure. Staff should be able to open their timesheet in one step.
- Time sheets. The mobility and ease of the user interface makes doing your time sheets easy.
- Expense reports. The interface is easy to understand and the ability to link your receipts as PDFs makes for better reporting.
- Project look up for basic information is quick and easy.
- Project creation. The interface is hard to understand.
- Assigning personnel to projects and projecting hours needs a lot of work.
- Generating reports makes no sense.
The user interface is not easy to use as others.
- User interface
- Project managing ease
- Marketing pipeline
