User Reviews of Deltek Costpoint

Submitted on June 29th, 2023 by Anonymous

We were sold Deltek as the crown jewel of DCAA compliant accounting software but once we began rolling out the system, we realized it was quite the opposite. We found the software very archaic and complicated. It was severely labor intensive to complete one task and then if a mistake was made, trying to correct it was a nightmare. We felt like we needed an entire education just to be somewhat knowledgeable of the system. Overall it was a poor fit for our company.

There is alot to the system. We are just getting used to it. I like the way the program works after we became familar with it. Our consultants are not as knowledgable as we would like.

We are just getting our December balances back now in Febuary which tells you all you need to know.

The Good…

The features are great and it does what we need. Alot better than the other options we looked at.

The Bad…

Expesnsive and we had to switch to an accountant that is familar with Deltek which is costing us more than our old one.

Our implementation consultants are having a difficult time implementing and converting our quickbooks data. This indicates that this is a difficult software to implement and use. It is not for the faint of heart. There are a lot of minute configurations and the transactions require a lot of data entry on multiple screens. A lot of data goes in, but it takes a very, very experienced resource to get anything out of it. Plan on hiring at least one resource for the sole purpose of admining and maintaining this application.

The Good…

Integrated project management and financials

The Bad…

Clunky, cumbersome, not intuitive, hundreds of nooks and crannies
