Overall Satisfaction with Deltek Vision

Deltek Vision is a holistic platform that encompasses our project management as well as our accounting needs. It is used across our entire organization with each individual having access to various parts of Deltek according to their roles. It is our core software and is essential to the operational function of our business.
  • 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.
  • It's helped us to have all of our information in a centralized place.
  • It has enabled users to be contributors to account information (based on their access rights) so that they can update appropriate fields as they become aware of changes (e.g. client addresses, contacts, etc.).
  • It is an expensive software but we know that there is so much potential that we have yet to look elsewhere. It's that powerful of a software.
I've used QuickBooks Online and other QuickBooks products but they were not for the same purposes as my experience with Deltek. I also was not part of the team that selected Deltek as that was prior to my arrival at my firm.
It is very well suited for firms that sell their time. If you have billable time this is a software that would be helpful to use. I have not used Deltek with other business platforms so I cannot speak to the use of Deltek if there is inventory or other job costing that isn't hours. But, if time is your business, it is a very comprehensive software.
