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.

When the company’s growth clearly warranted the implementation of a client relationship management (CRM) system, they attempted using a homegrown solution through Outlook. 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.

“With the economy the way it is, not a lot of clients are rushing to build new hospitals or sports stadiums— meaning the competition to win those jobs is pretty tough,” says Jack Clark, Vice President of Business Systems at HKS. “We knew we needed good, sound business processes to be able to go in and successfully win projects.”

Growing Architecture Firm maximizes Productivity and Profits with Deltek Vision.

 

Local Studio Founder & Director Thomas Chapman was struggling to manage staff time and cash flow resources and was reliant on Excel spreadsheets for time capturingreports,  project planning and financial forecasts. As the firm grew, it became increasingly difficult to make informed financial decisions on projects.

Champan’s research into industry-specific Project Management offerings, including Time and Expense software, led him to Deltek, which he chose because of its track record in delivering powerful cloud-based, tailored solutions for Architecture firms.

Local presence and support was also key to Chapman, which led to the appointment of Silversoft South Africa, a Deltek Premier Partner as his chosen technology partner.
