Overall Satisfaction with Deltek Ajera

We are currently using Deltek Ajera throughout the entire organization. We use it to track our time and also for project management. It assists us with project management purposes by tracking time for each project and assisting with ensuring our project is on budget. We monitor each project by printing and reviewing weekly reports for each project.
  • Setting up project numbers and task numbers for each project so you can bill time to each project. You can then easily track costs.
  • You can easily create customizable reports to show what data you want to capture in an easily readable format for you to read and compare.
  • Time sheets are easy to enter for each employee as long as the project numbers, over head numbers, etc., are entered.
  • Expense sheets are easy to enter as long as project number, over head numbers, etc., are entered.
  • 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.
  • Ajera has allowed our company to become more efficient when it comes to compiling project management reports.
  • Ajera has allowed us to become more efficient when it comes to monthly invoicing.
  • There is some initial downtime when we hire new project managers as many are not familiar with Ajera so we need to train them on the software and how to run reports, task management, budget management, etc.
We have also used Deltek Vision while employed with other firms; however, we felt Ajera was more cost effective due to the size of our firm. As we grow, there is a possibility we will eventually upgrade to Vision.
I think Ajera would be well suited for small to medium sized firms, especially engineering, architect, medical offices, car dealerships, and construction type firms. I think it would be less appropriate for large size firms as there would be limitations and they would need a separate platform for their marketing information (proposals, resumes, etc.). It would be much better if this information would be kept all together.
