Leading government contractor converts from QuickBooks to Deltek First and gets up and running in 10 days
HERNDON, Va. – February 5, 2014 – Deltek, the leading global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for government contractors and professional services firms, recently announced that C3 Systems (C3) has selected Deltek First as its cloud ERP system. Deltek First delivers the DCAA compliance that C3 needs along with effective contract management, accurate payroll processing and automated accounting processes including invoicing and paid time off reconciliation – all in the cloud.
As a management consulting and IT firm, C3 supports Federal, State, and Local Government customers by providing management consulting, software and system engineering, and other IT services. The firm recognized it had significant challenges with its former time management and accounting systems that did not meet the needs of its growing business. Not only was C3 unable to integrate the two systems, but it also experienced significant issues getting a clear picture of the business as its company grew and had too many manual processes in place for effective control of its mission-critical data.
“A major challenge we had prior to moving to Deltek was our Paid Time Off (PTO) hours being consistently incorrect using our former time management system. The PTO hours never calculated properly, and our team had to manually reconcile PTO accruals and balances after each pay period which took an inordinate amount of time that we could spend better elsewhere,” said Charles, President & CEO, C3 Systems. “The level of customer service our vendors were providing us also declined steeply – we no longer wanted to use these inadequate systems to run our business. Simply put, our former systems consistently failed to meet the needs of our growing company.”
C3 had an immediate need for an expedited implementation because the firm had recently won a number of new contracts that it needed to manage and account for as soon as the projects started. Since its previous time management system could not properly manage the new contracts, C3 needed to be up-and-running on Deltek First within 10 calendar days. Deltek Partner –Premier Consulting & Integration– was essential in helping C3 ensure that Deltek First was in place to meet its business needs.
“Working with Charles Thomas and C3 was a great opportunity for PCI to use our expedited implementation process. We were able to stand up the Deltek First platform for C3 in 10 days, meeting its business requirements and minimizing transition time. The Deltek First cloud solution affords us the ability to quickly respond to customer needs and provide a best in class implementation and training to support a world-class software solution,” said Marty McGann – President & Founder at PCI.
“Deltek’s cloud solution is tailor-made for government contractors and other project-based firms like C3. Unlike its previous systems, Deltek First is designed to grow with an organization, and the integrated ERP solution will help C3 maximize business performance and deliver better project results, while incurring fewer risks and reducing compliance costs,” said Tom Mazich, Deltek’s Executive VP and General Manager – GovCon. “We are thrilled to welcome C3 Systems to the Deltek family and provide the solution it needs to successfully manage and grow its government contracting business.”
