Deltek Launches Game-Changing Resource Planning Solution for Government Contractors

Deltek Resource Planning empowers Government Contractors to better manage their resources to drive optimal utilization and increased project profitability

HERNDON, Va. – October 6, 2016 – Deltek, the leading global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for project-based businesses, today announced the launch of Deltek Resource Planning, an innovative new solution that will transform how government contractors plan and optimize their resources. Government contractors are heavily reliant on their people resources to deliver projects for government agencies. Deltek’s new Resource Planning solution uniquely enables resource and project managers to quickly locate the most qualified and available resources for projects, gain visibility into future resource needs, optimize utilization, and reduce employee turnover.

Deltek Resource Planning is the only solution that empowers government contractors to plan and manage projects and resources across the entire project lifecycle – from opportunity identification to project closeout. Resource Planning enables companies to optimize their resources and make critical hire or subcontract decisions earlier in the project lifecycle, helping contractors to drive better resource performance while impacting the bottom line and achieving higher profits.

Now available as part of Deltek’s Costpoint Cloud suite, Deltek Resource Planning accelerates the project lifecycle for government contractors. Along with other key components of Deltek’s Cloud solutions including Deltek CRM, Talent Management and Core HR capabilities, Resource Planning delivers unparalleled capabilities across the project lifecycle that can’t be matched by generic providers or point solution vendors.

Resource Planning empowers government contractors to:

  • Plan resources from the start, when the project is put into the pipeline. Deltek Resource Planning delivers visibility into projects in the pipeline so organizations know if they need to hire resources and when they will need to be allocated. When combined with Deltek CRM, opportunities are tracked, resources are planned for, and organizations seamlessly resource the project as soon as it has been won.
  • Optimize resources based on skill set. With this new solution, users can optimally utilize resources and plan confidently by having the right resources on the right projects. When combined with Deltek Talent Management, competencies, skills and certifications for employees and candidates can be seamlessly included in the Resource Planning process to help government contractors identify resources to win new business, and to deliver on existing projects.
  • Reduce the time resources are on the bench. With visibility across projects and schedules, government contractors can better manage teams and increase resource utilization – leading to substantial increases in profitability.

“We are thrilled to announce this highly anticipated solution, which delivers the industry’s most innovative resource planning capabilities to government contractors. This solution will uniquely enable contractors to better plan & forecast resource needs for new work, and optimize resources across existing projects leading to higher profits and a more productive workforce. As part of Deltek’s Costpoint Cloud, Resource Planning not only allows users to leverage historical data through existing project and organization data, but also employee information such as skills, education, certifications, and security clearances – factors that are crucial to making effective resourcing decisions,” said Namita Dhallan, Executive VP, Product Strategy and Engineering at Deltek.

Resource Planning is also available on a standalone basis for those organizations not leveraging Deltek’s Costpoint Cloud. Built from the ground-up with robust APIs, the solution easily integrates and connects to third-party ERPs and Human Capital Management systems, and can also be deployed on-premise.

To complement this new solution, Deltek has also unveiled its latest “how to” guide called Resource Planning for Dummies. In this book, Deltek summarizes today’s trends in resource management, and outlines a clear plan for allocating the right people, to the right projects, at the right time to drive enhanced profitability.
