Carpedia International helps organizations achieve improved operating performance by aligning execution with strategy and planning. As a company that focuses on delivering results, not just reports, it was time for Carpedia to find a solution to help improve its own internal processes.

Carpedia moved from one single business unit to six separate operating units, but Quickbooks couldn’t manage the intercompany relationships and wasn’t giving the firm the robust project-based financials it needed to successfully run all six companies from a single solution. When looking for a new solution, Deltek was an early favorite because of the sophisticated financials, flexibility, multi-company/multi-currency functionality and process automation.

Carpedia selected Deltek, a project-based solution designed specifically for professional services firms that could be customized to meet the needs of each internal company’s business processes.

Starting as a small office, SWCA recently celebrated its 30-year anniversary with growth to over 750 employees across more than 20 offices. But even though the firm experienced an average of 12% growth a year—despite the current economic downturn—SWCA still experienced some internal challenges when it came to project management and financial management.
Because the company had to rely on multiple, stand-alone systems, information was not getting into the hands of the people who needed it. “As the business was growing, we found that our data was being delivered to the finance and accounting teams, but not to the project managers,” said Michael Truax, Director of IT for SWCA. “PMs had a hard time wrapping their minds around the data, because it was in two separate systems with two completely different databases.

Also, most of our tools were homegrown, so besides not having a consistent feel, it would take weeks of back and
forth to report on how projects were doing.”

SWCA knew what it needed to remove its project management obstacles: a solution that connected the entire organization around its projects that was delivered on a single, secure system and provided accurate, reliable data in real-time as well as unlimited visibility for project managers into the health and status of its projects.
