Overall Satisfaction with Deltek Ajera

Deltek Ajera is used to manage engineering projects, track employee time and expenses on projects, generating billing as well as run the company financials. Prior to using Ajera, we had to use 3 different products and manual processes to do the same job. Deltek Ajera greatly streamlines the workflow, ensures accurate costing and makes invoicing very simple.
  • Generation of invoices, multiple invoice types and easy to customize for clients' needs.
  • Report customization via data inquiries and custom report system.
  • Accurate entry and tracking of timesheets
  • They are working towards being browser agnostic. Ajera is still quite dependent on Internet Explorer's Runonce features for many functions.
  • Developing custom SQL queries is quite difficult given the highly interdependent DB structure. No meaningful data dictionary is available.
  • Their support department isn't always responsive.
  • We'd like more options for electronic payments for AP/EFT.
  • We are now confident in employees time entry.
  • Invoicing is a breeze compared to before.
  • Financial reports are better suited to this business than the ones from the previous software used.
  • WIP is easier to track and manage
The previous systems were essentially timesheet systems only with very basic accounting. It's mostly the accounting subsystem that made us select 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.
