Case Study: Eppstein Uhen Architects

Leading Architecture Firm takes Business to the next level by moving to Deltek Vision

With more than 140 employees and $24 million in 2007 total revenue, Eppstein Uhen Architects (EUA) is a thriving architecture firm serving corporate, healthcare, public, retail and senior living markets.

But to make it work they had to manually transfer project and client data into an accounting system to pursue opportunities and even track basic client information.

Eppstein Uhen once again looked to Deltek for a solution. They learned that Deltek Vision, a fully integrated solution that combines a complete project accounting system with an integrated project management and CRM solution, provided all of the functionality that Eppstein Uhen had been seeking.
