HERNDON, VA – August 4, 2008 – Deltek, Inc. (NASDAQ: PROJ), the leading provider of enterprise applications software for project-focused organizations, today announced that IE Discovery, Inc. has selected Deltek’s Costpoint solution to support its overall ERP needs after a rigorous evaluation process.
IE Discovery is the first-ever provider of Comprehensive Discovery ManagementSM services offering a single source for legal, technology, and records management expertise. After continued positive growth, the company began an evaluation project at the end of 2007 to upgrade from its existing Deltek GCS Premier accounting package. An internal evaluation team analyzed Deltek’s Costpoint product as well as several competing vendor solutions using over 34 requirements. Competing Vendors were eliminated from the process based on cost, missing features, or poor scores in industry research.
“Deltek Costpoint provides more complete functionality right out of the box, greatly reducing any customization and the associated risks,” said Chris May, CEO of IE Discovery.
IE Discovery will be utilizing Deltek’s Costpoint solution for key functions including accounts payable and receivable, general ledger, billing, purchasing and receiving, procurement planning and requisitions, advanced HR and benefits, time collection and expense, and enhanced reporting and business intelligence tools.
The implementation is expected to be completed by the end of 2008 and will replace IE Discovery’s existing accounting package, time entry software, HR database, invoicing system, and all manual expense reporting and purchase order processes.
“IE Discovery’s successful progression from GCS Premier to Costpoint highlights the operational benefits and growth path Deltek designs into our products,” said Kevin Parker, President and CEO of Deltek. “Costpoint’s robust feature offerings and scalability are designed to meet the needs of larger project-focused businesses and government contractors like IE Discovery working within strict audit and compliance guidelines. We are pleased to have been a part of IE Discovery’s growth through their successful usage of GCS Premier and we look forward to their continued success and growth with Costpoint.”
