Herndon, VA (PRWEB) November 20, 2013
Deltek, the leading global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for professional services firms and government contractors, today announced that top 100 accounting firm Katz, Sapper & Miller (KSM) has selected Deltek Maconomy. The Deltek solution will allow KSM to leverage industry specific capabilities and unite its entire firm on a single solution for financial management, practice management and CRM – as the company pursues a firm-wide approach to managing its business that will drive profitability and growth.
Based in Indianapolis, Indiana, KSM had complex administrative processes across the firm due to its use of multiple disparate systems to manage various aspects of its business. Key to KSM’s strategy was to implement a financial and practice management infrastructure that could scale with the firm’s planned growth by uniting the firm on a single solution that would provide visibility into financials, engagements and resources.
After reviewing several enterprise software systems, KSM turned to Deltek Maconomy, a comprehensive practice management system designed for the unique needs of public accounting firms. Deltek Maconomy will enable KSM to consolidate a number of existing business systems while providing the entire firm with better business intelligence across its various practices. KSM will also leverage key CRM capabilities, integrated with the practice management elements of Deltek Maconomy, to gain better visibility into the firm’s projects, clients, and strategic growth areas.
“When we began our in-depth software evaluation effort, KSM was focused on finding a comprehensive solution to unite our front- and back-office operations and staff,” said Jamie Ellis, Chief of Operations and Finance at Katz, Sapper & Miller. “Throughout our discussions with various software providers, it became abundantly clear that Deltek was by far the best option for us due to the company’s deep industry expertise and its ability to offer an end-to-end firm management solution that included robust CRM functionality.”
“KSM has always been a thought-leader when it comes to technology. Adopting an enterprise-class ERP system is an important milestone for our firm – one that was required in order to continue on our growth plan,” said Darrell Williams, IT Director, Katz, Sapper & Miller.
“Our Deltek Maconomy solution will allow KSM to integrate its projects, finances and people to drive firm-wide connectivity and success. And with its emphasis on winning new business, our CRM capabilities will help the firm accelerate client wins across the various services that it offers,” said Claus Thorsgaard, Deltek’s Executive VP & General Manager – Professional Services. “We are thrilled to welcome yet another top 100 CPA firm to our client family, and look forward to a long partnership with KSM.”
