Posted by Megan Miller on May 11, 2020

Remote Working

Remote working is becoming more prevalent in the architecture and engineering industry. Whether it’s working between locations, assembling the best team for a project, or providing employees more flexibility, teams are more dispersed than ever before. Companies are looking for ways to find new projects, improve collaboration, deliver better projects and maintain cash flow.

Deltek makes it easier for teams to work remotely by delivering the tools and resources to be more agile. This allows for teams to more easily meet changing client demands, while running their business from anywhere. Each company is facing business challenges, but regardless of the challenge in front of you, let Deltek help. Here are a few ways your company can better support your remote workforce with Deltek.

Move Your Business to the Cloud

Remote teams need to have easy access to project-based tools and systems to deliver projects from anywhere. If teams can’t get connected or project details aren’t accessible, projects get delayed, deadlines are missed or invoices go unpaid. Companies cannot afford those costly disruptions. By moving to the Deltek Cloud, your company can enable mission-critical business processes from any location. With increased security, flexibility, scalability and support, your business can focus on what you do best – deliver exceptional projects. If you aren’t running your business in the cloud, now is the time to make the move.

Monitor Government Funding and Spending

As markets and client priorities change, keep your finger on the pulse of what’s happening with new contracts, where the money is going and what potential projects are a good fit for your company with GovWin IQ. Whether it’s federal, state or local spending, let Deltek help you monitor potential projects and better position your company to win. And, with a seamless integration to Deltek’s CRM solutions, you can go from finding new projects to managing the pursuit with a click of a button.


Proactively Manage Your Pipeline

Keeping virtual teams connected for effective business development can be a challenge. With teams working from multiple locations, it’s imperative that companies use the right tools to keep teams connected and projects moving forward regardless of physical location. Whether it’s finding new ways to stay connected with clients, better ways to collaborate with teaming partners or proactively monitor the ever-changing pipeline, your teams need to easily discern which clients and opportunities are right for your business. Quickly update changes to opportunity status as project funding and client demands evolve. Track connections with clients to better understand what’s happening with their business and what’s on the horizon. Let Vantagepoint help you stay connected to your clients, potential projects and project teams no matter where you are.

Your People Need You

Keeping remote employees engaged can be a challenge, but Talent Management helps keep teams engaged and thriving. Now is the time to leverage continuous feedback and more frequent project-focused check-ins to stay in close contact with your employees. You can also provide opportunities for focused learning to cross train employees and invest in their future while preparing them for the next big project.

Encourage Collaboration

Project teams are becoming more remote, but they need to stay connected to collaborate on project deadlines and deliverables. Working together seamlessly is more vital than ever, and Deltek keeps your teams connected. Project managers, resource managers and project delivery teams have the insight they need into project schedules and resource assignments, so they can easily adjust as needed and keep teams informed as projects change and evolve. Easily know who is working on which projects, who’s available to step in and help meet a deadline or who needs assigned to additional projects to help balance the workload. Keep projects on track and ensure optimal utilization with confidence that project teams know which projects are priority and can stay connected to changing project requirements regardless of physical location.

Manage Project Information From Anywhere

Having project emails, documents and drawings available and accessible from anywhere is more important than ever to keep projects on track. Ensure teams have access to the most current version of drawings, change orders, documents and all other project-related files so they can move projects forward and make informed decisions. Easily find, update and manage project information from a single location with Project Information Management to empower your project teams to deliver exceptional projects.

Specification Solutions software gives your teams access to construction specification solutions from anywhere without downloads or installers to slow you down. Create new construction specifications, import from other libraries and easily edit from anywhere to quickly and accurately produce construction specifications and product manuals so you can move projects forward faster.

Agile and Flexible Project Management

Project priorities and requirements change and you need to feel confident that you know what teams are working on and how projects are performing so you can easily adjust, regardless of where team members are located. Empower project managers to proactively manage projects so they can identify challenges with schedules, budgets or resources and adjust mid-project to keep projects moving forward before it’s too late. Project managers should also be monitoring project profitability through up-to-date timesheets and expenses; outstanding invoices and more to make sure teams are getting paid for the work they deliver. With interactive dashboards and mobile access, project managers can stay informed about project performance and keep teams on track from anywhere.

Improve Cash Flow With a Paperless Movement

Maintaining cash flow is always a priority, but can be a challenge with a remote workforce. Now is the time to take a closer look at your financial processes and move from generic financial solutions and paper-based processes to project-based paperless financial management. Don’t let stacks of papers or remote employees hold up your billing processes, preventing you from getting paid. Take advantage of mobile timesheets and expense reports so employees can easily track time and expenses and quickly upload electronic receipts from anywhere so you don’t have to wait for paper copies to reimburse staff.

And it’s more than just time and expense. With Deltek solutions built for project-based businesses, you can review and approve invoices electronically, enable automatic bank reconciliation and much more to eliminate wasted time waiting for mark-ups, paper statements or receipts and expedite your financial processes to maintain or even improve your cash flow.
