SAWTST knew it was time to upgrade its ERP system to streamline and automate processes and reporting, as well as to scale for its long-term growth plans. The system it was using was too manual and time-consuming – employees were burdened with siloed processes. SAWTST needed a single solution that could support functional areas including contracts management and procurement. They were looking for a new ERP partner that would deliver more innovation and greater intelligence through an all-in-one system across the entire project lifecycle. In addition, SAWTST wanted better, out-of-the-box reporting, designed for government contractors. By switching to Deltek, SAWTST anticipates Costpoint will be its one-stop-shop for mission-critical data and save them a full-time staff member due to Costpoint’s automation.
Deltek Costpoint is the government contracting industry’s leading solution that delivers more innovation and greater intelligence at every stage of the project lifecycle. It centralizes the management of projects, people and finances, and scales seamlessly as needs grow, enabling small to enterprise size businesses to win new clients, manage project profitability and improve client satisfaction at every stage. Additionally, the integrated cloud offering enables the secure storage of data and is consistently enhanced to meet the most up-to-date governmental and agency cybersecurity compliance standards including NIST 800-171.
“Being a CFO and part of a finance team at a government contractor requires special skills and understanding of the unique government requirements for finance and accounting,” said Debra Hadley, Chief Financial Officer at SAWTST. “How we handle our project information – and our accounting, finances, and reporting – requires the right partnerships with those that know how the government thinks. We need software that makes it easy for us to be efficient and connects the entire company to our project data for a single source of the truth. And we have found that with Deltek. After demoing the software and doing our research, it’s clear that Deltek is miles ahead of the competition and the gold standard for government contractors.”
