The Enterprise Award recognizes a large, thriving business that leverages Deltek solutions to achieve its global mission. This year’s winner is Rambøll, an international consulting engineering company with 16,500 employees in 35 countries. Rambøll has been using Deltek Maconomy as its global ERP partner since 1999 – a critical part of its successful growth.

Rambøll most recently rolled out Maconomy for 1,300 employees across two company acquisitions. The move seamlessly integrated new business units under its internal “One ERP” initiative to streamline onboarding new teams without disruption to the business.

Rising on the tides of unprecedented growth, Deltek WorkBook enabled Collective Measures to streamline its project management and resourcing efforts and focus on what it does best: driving incredible results for clients. Collective Measures saw a 20% increase in work and projects as a result of the pandemic, taking on work at an increased pace facilitated by WorkBook, which provided one central ERP system for resource allocation, time tracking, and project management.
The Partner Award recognizes a Deltek partner and customer that together have completed an exceptional implementation of a Deltek solution. Deltek partner Prescience Technology and customer Sydney Metro are this year’s winners. With three metro projects in delivery and one in operation, Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport project. It is delivering the necessary step change in rail infrastructure to support Sydney’s vision of three connected cities and safe, fast, frequent, turn-up-and-go services. Working with Prescience Technology, Sydney Metro uses Deltek Acumen which has resulted in significant time and cost savings. With Deltek, Sydney Metro has improved resource allocation and effort prioritization through risk-managed scheduling, allowing it to successfully manage their mega projects.
The Professional Services Award recognizes a firm doing innovative work and succeeding with the help of Deltek solutions. This year’s winner, environmental and engineering consultants Haley & Aldrich, has a vision to be the most sought after company to integrate technology and human potential to tackle issues facing the world. Haley & Aldrich implemented Deltek Vantagepoint to eliminate costly customizations for its more than 800 users, across 30 offices in the United States. With Deltek Vantagepoint, the firm has simplified its business processes, leveraged project-based functionality, and taken advantage of the latest technologies to service its clients more effectively.
