Deltek Costpoint Smart Business Applications Bring Businesses Global Access to Enterprise Data

HERNDON, Va.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Aug. 2, 2005— Deltek, the enterprise resource planning (ERP) vendor of choice for project-based businesses, today announced the release of Deltek Costpoint(R) Smart Business Applications(TM), a Web-based interface to Costpoint, the industry leading, fully integrated enterprise solution developed specifically for sophisticated project-based businesses. Costpoint Smart Business Applications, or Costpoint web, is the only Web-enabled ERP system designed specifically for project-based businesses.

With its Web-based architecture, Costpoint web increases collaboration and productivity while providing industry-leading robust, built-in project accounting functionality that nearly 1,000 Deltek clients rely upon. Other significant features include enhanced reporting functions, a user-friendly "zero-client" interface and improved navigation tools that increase ease of use.

Alexandria, Virginia-based engineering firm Radian Inc, a subsidiary of Engineered Support Systems, Inc. (ESSI), will deploy Costpoint web to enhance and improve access to critical requisitioning, purchasing and receiving functions. With more than 450 employees, Radian develops new products and maintains existing assets for both military and commercial applications.

"Costpoint web will significantly accelerate our reporting processes and ensure that important financial and project data is readily available to employees and remote users anywhere in the world via the Internet," said Steven Smith, database administrator at Radian. "In addition, this application will reduce time spent on routine maintenance and upgrades, increasing our operational efficiency as a result."

Veteran-owned Miltec, headquartered in Huntsville, Alabama, plans to upgrade to Costpoint web to manage missile and aerospace systems projects. "At Miltec, we have a number of employees who routinely work outside the main office unconnected on the WAN. Costpoint web will allow them to connect from any computer, anywhere in the world, through a Web browser," said senior business analyst Mike Bearden. "That level of connectivity will extend to our entire enterprise, providing project managers improved control over critical financial and business data."

"Costpoint web further extends our leadership and vision for project--based organizations, allowing them to dramatically improve company-wide decision-making and connectivity through an integrated user interface," said Kevin Parker, CEO of Deltek. "This product is a direct reflection of Deltek's ongoing commitment to creating the most efficient solutions for the entire enterprise."

    Don't believe any CostPoint article that you see that includes the words "user friendly" or "efficient". My company released Costpoint for internal use five months ago after a painful integration process that took over a year to complete. The results are horrid. The software package is non-intuitive and clunky. Just about every 'no-brainer' option you'd want in a system is missing.
    There isn't an employee in our company at any level, (IT manager, accounting, requisitioners, approving managers, etc.) that isn't utterly frustrated with it. You'd be better off using Excel macros to manage your projects.
