Prior to selecting Deltek, Lerch Bates had two disparate systems in place that no longer delivered the capabilities and reporting functionality it needed for visibility into the company’s financial information and overall business performance. In addition, Lerch Bates was utilizing valuable man-hours to pull reports that contained inaccurate data. At the same time, the growing company couldn’t track profitability at the project level because of inaccurate timekeeping tools that were in place.
The company conducted a thorough evaluation and reviewed six vendors including SAP and NetSuite. Ultimately, the company selected Deltek Vision because of its tight integration between project accounting and general ledger and it’s built in ability to drive transparency through robust reporting capabilities at all levels of the Work Breakdown Structure. In addition, Lerch Bates was impressed with the timekeeping capabilities that would allow them to capture all time spent on projects, giving them a more accurate view into the profitability of both projects and resources.
“After looking at the competition, Deltek was the obvious choice for us. No other vendor could offer the deep project-native capabilities that Deltek offers. Not only does Deltek deliver the tight integration we need for streamlined financial management, but we can also shape the solution to our specific business needs, without costly or time consuming customizations,” said Chad Leverenz, IT Manager and project manager for the ERP migration project. “In the end, we were able to successfully replace two disparate systems with one Deltek solution that will help us run our business more efficiently."
“Deltek Vision was purpose-built for firms like Lerch Bates, delivering the tools the company needs to manage the complete project lifecycle, improve the accuracy and efficiency of its financial management processes, and ensure easy access to critical information to make smarter, faster business decisions,” said Claus Thorsgaard, Deltek’s Executive VP and General Manager – Professional Services. “We are thrilled to add Lerch Bates to our growing list of successful AEC customers.”
