Whether your business employs five people or 500, it can benefit from specialized project-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions. With an ERP designed around the needs of project delivery, firms can more easily meet business objectives, deliver value and react to market changes.
Project-based ERPs, like Deltek Maconomy, are specifically designed to support professional services businesses like yours. We’ve put together a short guide, Project-Based ERP for Small, Growing and Global Businesses, that shows the full value a project-based ERP can bring to firms of all sizes.
What is a Project-Based ERP? And What Benefits Does It Bring?
Organizations across all industries use ERP solutions to support accounting, resource planning, compliance and more.
But many ERP tools aren’t built to support the volume and pace of projects handled by professional services firms. This might explain why, despite 94.7% of professional services firms using a Corporate Financial Management or ERP solution, firms score their satisfaction with their ERP as just 3.85 out of five. That’s the second-lowest satisfaction score recorded across all classes of enterprise application.
Deltek has been working with project-based businesses of all sizes for almost 40 years – and have built ERP solutions with the needs of project-based businesses in mind.
Deltek Maconomy provides all the tools professional services firms need to manage projects, people, clients and finances in one central location – giving you the ability to make better, more informed decisions about the future of your business.
