DALLAS — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 15, 2013 — Deltek, the leading global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for professional services firms and government contractors, recently announced the release of Vision 7.1 – a new version of its industry-leading project-based ERP solution for architecture and engineering (A&E) firms and other project-based businesses around the world. Vision 7.1 delivers new capabilities to streamline processes, and offers ease-of-use enhancements for high-quality project and financial management. New features include a completely redesigned Business Intelligence (BI) solution – Vision Performance Management (VPM) – as well as enhancements to Vision Navigator, and Mobile CRM and Mobile Time.
Vision 7.1 delivers:
- Wider visibility so firms can plan better: Vision Navigator is a revolutionary new tool that is accessible from almost any browser and tablet device. Divided into two workspaces, Employee and Project Management, Navigator benefits multiple organizational roles. The Employee workspace provides easier and simpler access to Vision for multiple tasks, including tracking and monitoring timekeeping. The Project Management workspace allows project managers a “Mission Control” view to better execute projects. In addition, Navigator benefits the entire organization by providing more accurate and complete project information, as well as the ability to closely monitor projects from anywhere at any time.
- Tighter control over projects with faster cash flow and better proposals: The new Invoice Approval system allows organizations to speed up invoicing and capture relevant information related to the invoicing process within Vision. And the Adobe InDesign integration new in Vision 7.1, allows for easy formatting and combines the layout power of InDesign with the information that already exists in Vision to quickly create sleek proposals.
- Deeper insight into clients, resources, projects, processes & results: The release of Vision 7.1 delivers an entirely new Business Intelligence (BI) experience—the redesigned Vision Performance Management (VPM) dashboards providing deep insight for better business decision-making. VPM delivers access to more data cubes through a world-class presentation layer, powered by Tableau.
“With this new release of Deltek Vision, our best in class project-based ERP solution for A&E firms, we are providing our customers with exciting new capabilities. This includes everything from InDesign integration, better document management, and a completely redesigned dashboard. The entire Vision suite provides comprehensive visibility into critical business data, giving companies greater control over their organizations,” said Namita Dhallan, Executive VP, Product Strategy and Engineering at Deltek.
“Thanks to the advances Deltek is making with Deltek Vision 7.1 and Navigator, we are able to have much more visibility into our data,” said Nicholas Vlattas AIA, Principal, COO and CFO at A&E firm Hanbury Evans Wright Vlattas + Company. “It has always been difficult to quickly look at some of our data fields because they are user defined or not available in our data cubes. Exporting to Excel and updating periodically has always been our method, which is time consuming and makes our data quickly outdated. With the new version of Vision, we now have up-to-date, accurate information at our fingertips giving us unprecedented insight into our project health.”
