Vantagepoint At A Glance

Good: "Hey Deltek" personal assistant, the ability to create proposals, real-time access to actionable insights.
Bad: Slight learning curve in navigating robust features, interface has a dated look.
Bottom Line: With this CRM module, architecture, engineering and consulting firms can easily identify and bid on new projects.

Product Overview

Deltek Vantagepoint is a cloud-based software that helps architecture, engineering and consulting companies stay on top of their projects. Users can manage all of their projects in one place and get actionable insights on each project. Deltek Vantagepoint’s modules include project management, financial management, CRM, resource management and business intelligence. This review focuses on the CRM module.

Deltek Vantagepoint CRM lets users identify and bid on new projects, manage their pipelines and cultivate client relationships. It’s accessible on any device, and it integrates with other solutions, like Microsoft Outlook, Salesforce, and QuickBooks.

Features

Here are a few key features of Deltek Vantagepoint CRM:

Contact management – The contact database stores all information and interaction history on a prospect or client. Users can create and update contacts from any device, and because the CRM module integrates with Outlook, contact information can also be automatically added. There’s a personal assistant feature called “Hey Deltek” that accepts voice or text commands, such as adding contacts, setting reminders and noting new follow-up tasks.

Pipeline management – Users can track their entire pipeline in a single place, and built-in reminders can alert them to follow up on particular tasks. They can also create proposals by adding in text, images or line breaks, and they can see the availability of key project members and historical budget data before sending proposals.

Reporting -The reporting and analytical tools include templates and role-based dashboards to help users spot trends and monitor their pipeline’s health. They can access key metrics on one screen, customize reports and then schedule them.
