Q1 2021 Quarterly Town Hall Recap

April 12, 2021

These town halls are part of our commitment to our users to ensure they have the latest information about their solutions, can get tips and tricks from the experts and can get updates about what’s happening with Deltek + ComputerEase. This is also an opportunity for you to get your questions answered by submitting your questions ahead of time. 

The Deltek + Computer Ease team, including John Meibers, Michael Heinsdorf, Barb Laws, Julie Pearson, and Maribel Scarnecchia, guided viewers through the remaining 2021 enhancement release dates, what users can expect in the upcoming enhancement release, and how to utilize new upgraded functionality and features available to ComputerEase customer to further improve business processes. 

When and What to Expect in the Q1 Enhancement Release 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and its economic impacts, there have been numerous and continuous updates to current accounting and tax legislation, specifically regarding the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA). Deltek + ComputerEase has been monitoring it closely and delayed our Q1 enhancement release in order to include updates to fully support the updated legislation, John Meibers assured viewers. You can expect the first 2021 enhancement release to be in full effect mid- to late-April.  

When deployed, users can expect to see multiple impactful updates to continue to increase efficiencies in your business usage. Sr. product director Barb Laws went into detail on the new ability to schedule reports to run with an automated email notification option. This new enhancement allows users to schedule reports ahead of time to run at any recurrence of your choice. An additional enhancement allows users to set up email notifications for approval alerts. You can now customize email alerts to be sent to intended recipients even if they’re not logged into the ComputerEase system for invoicing approvals. Whether you’re working in an office or on-site, you’ll receive real-time notice of when you’re required to approve invoices—furthering efficiencies across your workforce. 

Additional enhancements include more detailed options added to the AP Invoice Selection, Payroll module, and Qtool. These new details enable users to quickly view what each vendor within each project is costing as a subset of the overall cost, providing clearer understanding of ongoing project budget allocation.
