Developed using the world's most trusted project management and project accounting capabilities, Deltek First is designed to meet the unique needs of architecture and engineering firms, management consultancies, government contractors and many other types of project-based firms. Deltek First allows companies of all sizes to unite their organizations and better manage their projects on a single cloud solution, maximizing business performance with low costs to the business. Currently, Deltek has over 300 Deltek First customers ranging in size from 10 employees to 400, including Aercoustics – Canada’s premier engineering firm in acoustic design, Mantacore – a Swedish-based IT company offering solutions to the insurance industry globally, and MBA Consulting Services – a small business government contractor.
“We recently looked at the time and money Aercoustics spent investing in IT administration and management, and the amount of non-billable work that was consumed each month supporting our prior technology system, and found a considerable cost to the business,” said Steve Titus, Principal of Aercoustics – a Deltek First Vision Essentials customer. “Application hot-fixes, operating system updates, database upgrades, backups, technology refreshes, virus scans and firewall maintenance – all of these activities were done on a regular basis inside our organization. As a professional services company, time is our only inventory so we need to manage that extremely well to be profitable. We decided that we no longer wanted to support a costly infrastructure, so we moved our business to the cloud with Deltek First. Not only did we dramatically reduce our IT-related activities, but we also gained a market-leading ERP solution built for firms like ours. The low cost, high value of Deltek First will give us a competitive advantage moving forward.”
“We wanted a pre-configured cloud solution that supported multi-company and multicurrency. Deltek First Maconomy Essentials puts the proven capabilities of Deltek Maconomy within the reach of a SME like ours. When we were relying on Excel, we were really limited from a visibility standpoint. Deltek First enables us to bill more correctly to our clients. We now know exactly how many hours we spent on a project, down to task level and even by employee. Deltek First is the right solution for a project-based consulting firm like ours because it has the best-practice processes that support time and expense registration, project estimates, project management and accounting in one, single system,” said Henrik Svärdlång, COO, Mantacore.
