Company leadership wanted one integrated system that would give greater control over data, speed up the proposal process and provide access to real-time project information. RTI-HS turned to Deltek, a project-based ERP tool specifically designed for professional services firms, for a userfriendly solution that could be customized to match its business processes and make it easier to manage its business in one place.

Growing environmental consulting firm empowers Project Managers, reduces DSO and increases efficiency by 50% using Deltek Vision.

 

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.

Deltek, the leading global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for professional services firms, today announced that RisCura, a financial services firm in South Africa, has selected Deltek Vision as its fully-integrated ERP solution. RisCura will use Deltek Vision to integrate its unique CRM activities into projects and accounting processes and increase profitability.

Headquartered in Cape Town, South Africa, with more than 100 employees in offices in several African countries and in the UK, RisCura offers independent advice, analysis and reporting for asset owners, investment managers, hedge funds, private equity firms and brokers. As a highly client-centric firm, RisCura was looking for an integrated ERP and CRM solution to improve performance through more efficient processes, to deliver insight and enhanced reporting into key metrics, and to ensure tight financial integration.

After an in-depth evaluation process, it soon became clear Deltek and its local partner Silversoft could meet or exceed RisCura’s requirements, including RisCura’s unique CRM needs. Deltek will enable RisCura to move away from working in disparate systems and will support the entire project flow from CRM and project control, to financial management in a single integrated ERP solution. RisCura will also use Deltek Vision’s highly configurable platform to create and manage its own user-designed forms and fields which will support industry-specific information collection and management requirements.

“After a thorough selection process that included other major business ERP software brands, it was not hard for us to choose Deltek as they stood out as true experts in the professional services field with people who displayed an impressive knowledge of what it takes to run a project- and people-based business. In addition, Deltek Vision completely caters to our unique business processes, delivering timely management information directly from the system, and ensuring we can fully integrate our CRM with project planning and accounting. This will give us better visibility and ultimately grow our profitability,” said Malcolm Fair, COO, RisCura.

“Deltek Vision is purpose-built for professional services firms like RisCura, delivering the capabilities it requires to manage the complete project and client lifecycle. We see a trend in the industry where financial services firms are moving towards project-focused business processes as fee-based work is increasing relative to commission-based work. This trend makes Deltek Vision a very compelling solution for financial services firms like RisCura because it supports the company’s complex CRM and financial management processes and delivers easy access to critical information,” said Claus Thorsgaard, Deltek’s Executive VP and General Manager – Professional Services.

Maconomy has signed a deal with the audit firm BDO Ltd. Hong Kong, member of BDO International, a worldwide network of public accounting firms.

September 30, 2009 12:32 PM Eastern Daylight Time

 

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Danish ERP provider Maconomy already has a strong foothold in the US and Northern Europe thanks to its specially designed ERP solutions for project-focused companies. As Maconomy’s clients expand their base internationally, however, Maconomy continues to broaden its geographical base as the preferred ERP vendor for these clients.

Maconomy recently inked a similar deal with the BDO member firm in South Africa. After a careful selection process, BDO Ltd. Hong Kong decided to follow suit by signing a contract with Maconomy’s business partner MSA in September. The ERP solution includes the Maconomy Audit & Tax Solution for 550 users with advanced Business Intelligence capabilities.

BDO in South Africa selected Maconomy’s specially designed Audit & Tax solution to ensure cleaner workflows throughout the company. BDO Ltd. Hong Kong realized they could achieve similar benefits with an out-of-the-box solution.

“Maconomy has a keen understanding of the audit profession and this expertise is fully integrated in the ERP solution we have selected. This allows us to handle job management, CRM, advanced business intelligence and all back-office processes using the same system. Maconomy offered us an all-inclusive solution to support our long-term strategy. For us it makes perfect sense to invest in an ERP system specifically designed for our type of business,” says Mary Joyce Leung, Director of BDO Ltd. Hong Kong.

BDO Ltd. Hong Kong has also purchased Maconomy Analytix, an easy-to-use business intelligence tool that gives BDO an instant overview of their key figures. Analytix is fully integrated with the ERP solution, enabling users to go in-depth with any audit job to analyze its performance based on live data.

“We are very pleased with landing our second BDO deal in the span of a few months. BDO has already seen the value we bring to their business, so it’s only natural that we keep building closer ties with them. And with that comes even greater value because we can align our solutions with the way they run their business. We specifically develop our ERP solutions to help them address their challenges and run a more efficient business. The two BDO deals confirm that we have a strong business case in the accounting sector and it definitely benefits the Accounting and Audit and Tax clients in the US as well, as it clearly shows that Maconomy is a global company with a focus on this industry,” says Steen Andersen, President Maconomy US.

Please note that this release does not affect Maconomy’s financial expectations for 2009.
