HERNDON, Va. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — December 16, 2010 — Deltek, Inc. (Nasdaq: PROJ), the leading global provider of enterprise applications software and solutions for project-focused businesses, today announced that R.J. Burnside and Associates Limited has successfully implemented Deltek Vision with assistance from Deltek Premier Partner Kennedy Vomberg. A leading Canadian Engineering Consultancy with over 300 employees, R.J. Burnside, is leveraging Deltek Vision to eliminate spreadsheets, drive business intelligence across its organization through customized reports and dashboards, and improve billing cycle times.
Using Web-based technology and a single, centralized database, Deltek Vision integrates critical business functions such as resource and project management, time and expense capture, accounting, and billing. As a result, it powers all facets of a dynamic engineering firm and gives management real-time access to client, project, employee and company performance data.
R.J. Burnside chose Deltek Vision due to the solution’s strong project management functionality, cross-functional financial management capabilities and custom dashboards and reports that provide instant access to the status of all current projects. R.J. Burnside completed its initial Deltek Vision implementation in just six months, allowing the company to go live on multiple modules including time and expense, project metrics, reporting, and role-based dashboards and project accounting. The company is currently implementing additional Vision capabilities including proposal management, performance management, and project and resource planning. In addition, R.J. Burnside recently launched a third-party module that ties seamlessly into Vision’s Interactive Billing functionality to power a fully electronic billing process that is dramatically reducing the cycle for turning WIP into cash.
“Compared to other solutions we considered, Deltek Vision was head and shoulders above the rest, from feature set to future roadmap,” said David Christiansen, Corporate Business Manager at R.J. Burnside. “We knew Vision would give us what we needed today while offering the flexibility and functionality we needed to grow tomorrow. Not only was our implementation a success, but we’re coming up with new and interesting ways to use Vision’s capabilities to change the way we do business – things are moving faster and smarter with Vision.”
“R.J. Burnside has reached an important milestone with its Deltek Vision implementation, and we look forward to supporting the company as it rolls out additional modules,” said Hugo Dorph, EVP and General Manager of Deltek’s A&E/PS business unit. “We applaud the company for driving tremendous value with Deltek solutions to date, and our success with market leaders such as R.J. Burnside demonstrates Deltek Vision’s growing momentum in the Canadian marketplace.”
