Pros
Excellent product and support. Outstanding value when compared to all others on the market.
I like Ajera's time sheet capabilities, the time sheets are very easy to use for someone that does not use Deltek often. I also love this reporting capabilities.
The support people are great and the software actually has potential to be very good.
Cons
I do worry that Ajera will be sundowned for Vantage Point. That would make me very unhappy.
Security design & profile is very poor. There is no way to request password reset if you login a few times with wrong password other than going to the administrator.
Hard to use, ugly, and poor customer service. Only runs on microsoft edge, will not remember your password, will ask you for permission to download and run something every single time.

Great Software but a bit outdated

Reviewed 8 months ago

Good, needs work on the interface.

Pros

It’s a beast of a program but it gets the job done WELL and on micro scales

Cons

It’s not necessarily a “user friendly” software.

Ajera good for small business, not great for Percent Complete Projects

Reviewed a month ago

Our A&E firm has had amazing results in project management and resource management since we switched to Ajera from Viewpoint Vista. The accounting functions are well-protected from mistakes, but limits options of seasoned accountants.

Pros

Simple interfaces, buildable reports are handy for all. If project managers are willing to enter data into their project, like start/stop dates, percent complete and resources there is a wealth of reporting available. I also like the alert function tied to widgets.

Cons

prebuilt reports often lacking As an accountant, the software often blocks activities I can do in other ERP systems. I think Ajera is built like a more robust Quickbooks, protecting business owners from making mistakes, but it inhibits some accounting activities in the ledgers. Creative workarounds are possible, but sometimes annoying.

Ugggghhh, Can't wait to switch to something else

Reviewed 7 months ago

Overall, it feels old, outdated, and clunky. We've been using it at my office for close to 10 years, and in that time, I don't think I've ever seen any sort of updates with any new/improved features. In the past, I reached out to offer suggestions for improvements, and they always went ignored. I'm not even certain if Deltek continues to offer support and update this program anymore--for all I know, we may be one of the last few people still using this software. I've never found it to be helpful in my role, nor efficient. It tends to create more problems than it solves. I keep hoping my company will upgrade and find a new/better software for this purpose.

Pros

I do like the conditional formatting--we use that a lot to highlight projects with overdue notes, or color code fees so we can see patterns at a quick glance.

Cons

Updating project records. UGH, what a pain. I do this almost daily, and it's such a slow process, opening each record, having to find the proper tab, the proper field, make an update, wait for the record for save, etc. I wish there were a way to make quick updates from a dashboard. Although we can add custom fields, which is a plus, these custom fields are hard to keep in set order. When someone goes...

Ajera provides simple timekeeping when billable vs. unbillable is important.

Reviewed 6 years ago

I use Ajera for timekeeping for an engineering client. We create the projects from an admin level and can assign certain things to certain staff members. It allows for them to view their accrual pay, and the submittal for approval process is as easy as can be. Our supervisors get automatic emails to approve time sheets, and rarely do we have to ask staff to make changes because the format allows for such easy time entry to projects and overhead or otherwise. Ajera is a good option for timekeeping in the instance you need to bill your time to specific projects. I would recommend Ajera specifically for engineering firms, and any other organization that does project based accounting.

Pros

I like the ease of use for our staff. It is easy for them to find the appropriate project they are working on to code their time accordingly. Additionally, it is easy for them to bill to Holiday, Sick, or overhead as necessary. Once in the timekeeping window, the search feature works great whether you are searching by project titles or numbers, so we rarely have to intervene to help people with their timesheets.

Cons

There seem to be a couple steps to just get to the timekeeping window. Needs simplification - maybe it's the first window that pops up so that staff doesn't have to use a drop down for the timesheet.
