Deltek First delivers the efficiency and cost-savings firms need in today’s competitive environment.

Deltek, Inc., the leading global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for professional services firms and government contractors, today announced that accounting firm Goldstein Schechter Koch (GSK) has selected Deltek First Maconomy Essentials to work more efficiently as one firm and streamline its financial management processes. With Deltek First cloud ERP, GSK has access to industry-specific capabilities built for CPA firms with the low cost and universal accessibility of the cloud.

Based in Coral Gables, Florida, GSK needed to streamline administrative processes across the entire firm, freeing up time to focus on serving clients and developing new business. Key to GSK’s strategy was a financial management infrastructure that could scale with GSK’s planned growth – without adding IT cost or complexity.

GSK turned to Deltek First Maconomy Essentials, a comprehensive cloud-based management system designed for the unique management needs of public accounting firms. Deltek First aligned with GSK’s efficiency and cost-savings goals, allowing the firm to unify its operations and key processes on a single solution. GSK will use Deltek First’s streamlined workflow capabilities to significantly reduce administrative expenses and gain visibility into firm-wide activities – including the status of ongoing engagements – that will help strengthen client relationships.

“We focused on finding a solution designed for the way CPA firms operate, one that we could get up and running quickly and maintain easily,” said Mark Guthrie, CFO, GSK. “From our first meeting, Deltek’s industry expertise and proven CPA capabilities made us confident the solution would fit our needs. And with Deltek in the cloud, as we look to grow beyond southern Florida, we can expand without adding to our IT infrastructure.”

"GSK has a strong commitment to technology and it's our philosophy to have it at the forefront of our plans. Moving to an ERP system is the natural next step and we're excited about the direction this will take us,” said Sanford B. Horwitz, CEO/Shareholder, GSK.

“GSK joins Deltek’s growing client list of accounting firms which see the advantages of integrated ERP solutions over stand-alone practice management systems,” said Claus Thorsgaard, Deltek’s Executive VP & General Manager – Professional Services. “Deltek First delivers the efficiency and cost-savings firms need in today’s competitive environment. And, because it is delivered through the cloud, it does not require a significant upfront IT investment or a long, complex implementation making it the perfect solution for firms of nearly any size.”
