Fast growing consulting engineering firm chooses Deltek Vision to run its business on one, project-based system that delivers best practice business processes; BVi will use Deltek to improve project management and control throughout its business
Johannesburg, South Africa – December 5, 2013 – Deltek, the leading global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for professional services firms, today announced that South African consulting engineering firm BVi Consulting Engineers has chosen Deltek Vision to increase project profitability and drive greater visibility throughout its offices nation-wide. BVi will use Deltek Vision to consolidate its organization under a single, integrated ERP system and to manage its projects and resources across the various regions and disciplines in which it operates.
BVi offers services within the areas of civil, structural, electrical, mechanical engineering and project and environmental management. BVi has become an active participant in large scale Mining Infrastructure projects over the past 10 years, which has allowed it to expand its capacity to include EPCM services. Headquartered in Pretoria, Gauteng, BVi employs 300 people and has offices throughout South Africa and is expanding internationally. With this growth, BVi realized it needed to consolidate its business operations into a single best-of-breed platform, allowing for full transparency and day-to-day management of project and firm performance.
BVi was looking for a project-based ERP solution to centralize data and manage key processes including CRM, project management, time tracking and real-time reporting. BVi chose Deltek because of Deltek’s deep industry experience and marquee list of over 4,000 A&E firms that use Deltek Vision around the world. Built on industry best practices, Deltek Vision will provide BVi with deep visibility across its business, practice areas and projects. The fast-growing engineering firm will implement Deltek Vision 7.2 which includes a mobile suite for project management, time entry and CRM, and will also utilize the solution’s advanced reporting capabilities to monitor its Key Performance Indicators.
“In order to ensure that our business remains competitive and a market leader in our practice areas, we invest in the best technologies. After thorough evaluation process, we concluded that Deltek offers the software and support that we need in order to achieve our company’s goals and objectives. We need visibility into all KPIs from a single place and through one system to manage our business better. As we evaluated numerous software vendors, Deltek showed us that they can deliver a solution that perfectly fits our financial and project performance needs. Equally important is the fact that our solution is being implemented and continuously supported by Deltek’s local partner in South Africa, Silversoft. We are looking forward to beginning our implementation and joining the thousands of Deltek customers around the world that are using Deltek Vision to drive game-changing benefits,” said BVi CEO, Johann Grobler.
“With the many investments in South Africa both in infrastructure and from foreign investors, we are seeing increased demand for integrated, project-based ERP solutions in the engineering sector in the country, and BVi is a great example of this. We are proud that BVi has selected Deltek as its ERP solutions provider to help expand its business,” said Claus Thorsgaard, EVP & General Manager, Professional Services at Deltek. “We look forward to delivering streamlined back office processes and real-time visibility across BVI as it goes live on Deltek Vision in the coming months.”
