BR+A is a 35 year-old, employee-owned firm with 230 staffers in five offices across the United States. The company was previously using Deltek’s older Advantage solution as its ERP platform. To drive game-changing improvements across its organization, BR+A needed to move to a newer solution that could unite its front and back offices. After a rigorous evaluation process that included BST Global, BR+A decided to upgrade to Deltek Vision. While there were many reasons why Deltek was the optimal fit for the company, the most important factor was Deltek’s ability to provide the best combination of value and cost while delivering the capability to align marketing, business development, project and financial management.
While gaining greater insight into firm-wide performance was important, BR+A also had specific accounting and marketing requirements that it needed to drive improved performance. On the accounting side, BR+A needed seamless multi-state tax reporting – and Deltek Vision supports complex tax requirements out of the box. At the same time, BR+A is putting increasing emphasis on its 20-person marketing team to drive top-line growth. Vision’s suite of marketing solutions including Vision CRM and Vision Proposals will help the company win more business and operate more efficiently as it pursues new projects.
“We required a solution that was as easy-to-use as it was powerful, and Deltek delivered the AE-specific financial and marketing capabilities that we were looking for,” said Joseph Witt, CFO at Bard, Rao + Athanas. “We look forward to working with Deltek closely as we implement Vision across our offices nationwide.”
“Deltek Vision is a powerful and natural upgrade from our Advantage product, and we are thrilled to be working with Bard, Rao + Athanas as the company implements our solutions,” said Claus Thorsgaard, EVP and General Manager – Professional Services at Deltek. “Deltek Vision was purpose-built for firms like BR+A and offers comprehensive financial management and business development capabilities that will enable the company to meet its goals for the future. Our experienced Services team will ensure BR+A is up and running quickly on Deltek Vision so the firm can take advantage of all the benefits of an integrated front and back office.”
