Certified Integration allows efficient Delivery of Cost Information from Prolog Manager to Deltek Project & Financial Accounting System
FOLSOM, Calif. (June 18, 2003) - Meridian Project Systems (MPS), a leading provider of project management software and ASP solutions, today announced that Deltek Systems, Inc., The ERP Vendor of Choice for Project-Based Businesses, has successfully completed the certification process required to be an MPS Authorized DataBridge partner.
This certification is a key requirement in delivering integration between Deltek Costpoint, the project and financial accounting component of the Deltek Enterprise software suite, and Prolog Manager, from MPS. Prolog Manager is the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry standard for construction companies with over $250 million in volume*.
Deltek software is used by more than 8,000 project-based organizations worldwide, including top AEC firms, to automate critical front and back-office functions ranging from project accounting, human resources and payroll, to planning and budgeting and CRM and proposal automation. By integrating their respective software systems, Deltek and MPS will provide their customers with a best-in-class solution to manage the entire lifecycle of their projects.
"Project-based businesses, and in particular AEC firms, have unique requirements that are best met through flexible and dynamic solutions that deliver interoperability between core business functions," said Rick Lowrey, Deltek executive vice president and general manager. "Deltek's DataBridge certification is an important step in delivering integration between our robust back-office project-based software and a leading project management solution in the construction industry."
"We are pleased to have Deltek as a DataBridge partner," said John Bodrozic, MPS president and co-founder. "The MPS DataBridge Alliance Program offers both Deltek and MPS customers the opportunity to experience dramatic reductions in redundant data entry, and improved performance and financial visibility throughout their organizations."
The MPS DataBridge Alliance Program allows industry-leading vendors or system integrators to develop and market integration capabilities for MPS project management applications. The MPS Authorized DataBridge from Deltek turns cost commitment data created in Prolog Manager into pending Purchase Orders in Deltek Costpoint -saving countless hours of needless redundant data entry by accounting staff.
