Govind Development, Ranked the Fastest Growing Engineering Firm in America, Selects Deltek to Manage its Business.

HERNDON, VA – July 9th, 2014 –  Deltek, the leading global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for professional services firms and government contractors, announced that Govind Development, LLC (Govind) – recently named the fastest growing engineering firm in the country in the 2013 Inc. 500 rankings – has selected Deltek Vision to manage its business. The engineering firm will rely on Deltek as the financial, HR, and project management foundation to help power its continued growth.

 

After doubling the size of its workforce, Govind knew it could no longer run multiple, disparate systems for timesheets, reporting, employee data, and payroll – with no single view of the firm’s performance. It began a search for an integrated ERP solution to streamline its financial/HR management processes and provide easy access to the data needed to run its business efficiently. It also required project and resource management capabilities to ensure the right people are on the right projects, at the right time. After a thorough review of other systems including SAP, Govind ultimately selected Deltek Vision, designed specifically for architecture and engineering firms.

 

“Deltek Vision was an easy choice for Govind – it has all the capabilities we needed to work smarter as an organization so we could focus our efforts on delivering for our customers,” said Natesh Kumar, CFO at Govind. “Deltek inherently understands our business better than any other ERP provider that we evaluated. Vision is a scalable solution that delivers live reporting on employee utilization and the necessary tools we need for project profitability. We are excited to take advantage of the benefits of this solution and will rely on Deltek to build the financial and HR management foundation that will help drive our growth.”

 

“Govind was recently named the fastest-growing engineering firm in the United States by the Inc. 500 which is a huge accomplishment for a five year old firm, and we are thrilled that Govind selected Deltek to support its long-term business strategy,” said Claus Thorsgaard, Executive VP and General Manager of Professional Services at Deltek. “Deltek Vision was specifically designed to support the complete project lifecycle of A&E firms like Govind and offers a full range of capabilities from pipeline building and client management all the way to financial management and project execution. Vision is used by over 4,500 leading A&E firms, and we are pleased to add such a high profile customer to our global network of architecture and engineering firms.”

 

About Govind Development

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.
