Partnering with Deltek and utilizing their knowledgeable and dedicated implementation consultants enabled us to successfully go live in less than a month with the preconfigured solution.
Herndon, VA (Vocus) September 29, 2008
Deltek, Inc. (NASDAQ: PROJ), the leading provider of enterprise applications software for project-focused organizations, today announced the availability of four new Packaged Services plans. The four plans incorporate a consulting engagement package designed to provide predictability, speed of implementation and cost efficiency to aid new or converting customers with reduced risk and a simplified implementation approach. The four Packaged Service plans are built around the following products and conversions; GCS Premier Billing Package Service, Costpoint Quickstart Implementation Service, Costpoint Upgrade Service, and Deltek Performance Management Quick Start Service.
Providing a fixed scope of work, each package is comprised of a set list of activities, scripts, programs and deliverables uniquely defined around each software conversion or implementation. By clearly defining the necessary activities and building in a fixed scope of work based on over 20 years of Deltek's Global Services experience, these offerings provide for a clear implementation/conversion path to greatly reduce risk and unforeseen expenditures.
Each package includes a clear project plan with a pre-determined "go-live" date. In addition, each package has a set of specially designed project readiness documents and activities as well as functional and technical advice and assistance, data conversion scripts, programs and templates, a functional test plan, specialized training and project management guidance.
"Our company had an opportunity to win a large contract with the U.S. government, but to do so we had to implement a compliant accounting system. We chose Deltek based on its reputation as the preferred government contracting software," said Neal Post, Vice President Controller of Alenia North America. "Partnering with Deltek and utilizing their knowledgeable and dedicated implementation consultants enabled us to successfully go live in less than a month with the preconfigured solution."
"Through this packaged services approach we are removing much of the ambiguity around an upgrade or implementation and greatly reducing the risk and concern that many of these customers face," said Rick Lowenstein, Executive Vice President of Deltek Global Services. "The largest barrier to a new or converting customer is the fear and uncertainty of what could or will go wrong and the Deltek packaged services offerings remove that barrier by providing a clear path and set of parameters for success."
