Leading Middle Eastern Architecture & Engineering Practice, maisam, Selects Deltek to Provide End-to-End ERP Platform to Improve Project Execution

London, UK, 15 September 2015 – Deltek, the leading global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for project-based businesses, today announced that maisam architects & engineers, a leading practice in the MENA and Gulf region, has selected Deltek to provide an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) platform for its growing business. The Deltek Vision solution, purpose built for the architecture and engineering industry, will streamline maisam’s internal processes allowing the team to focus on what they do best, delivering world class design projects for their clients.

With a reputation for producing diverse, landmark projects in the region, including the Queen Alia International Airport and the award winning “A Gateway to Petra” project, maisam’s growing project portfolio demanded a review of their existing infrastructure as they sought to become more efficient and competitive in the international marketplace.

In approaching the search for an ERP system to replace a mix of manual spreadsheets and a bespoke accounting software, maisam outlaid multiple key success criteria to help them select the system and partner best suited to their requirements. With the core objective of establishing a professional, timely and efficient project management and capacity planning operation, the Deltek solution was deemed the best match for the way in which maisam do business, offering the visibility and control required to streamline operations. As the global standard for more than 4,500 global A&E firms, Deltek Vision will provide maisam with integrated project, resource and financial management capabilities. Deltek Vision will also provide support to the entire maisam business, allowing them to focus on managing the creative deliverables of each and every project whilst ensuring cost control and bottom line profitability.

“Our focus as a business has always been on delivering innovation through design, uniting people, places and experiences; and we expect the same dedication to excellence in the partners and systems we work with. In our selection of Deltek as our ERP provider, we were impressed by their commitment to the A&E industry, understanding of our business and industry, and the ability of the Vision system to support all of our internal functions. Every step of our project lifecycle, from bid management to timesheets, resource planning to financial management, will be united by one system. We will also have the integrated reporting we need to make business critical decisions every step of the way as we expand our practice and take on more work,” said Hazem Nimri at maisam.

“As a growing practice, building efficiencies and minimising the administration of their client focused team is crucial for maisam. This is a requirement common across all our A&E and other project-centric clients that unites them in their need to work with a specialist provider focused on their industry,” said Fergus Gilmore, Managing Director of Deltek UK. “We are very proud to have been selected as preferred partner to another Middle Eastern practice who is looking to expand their global operations and look forward to a long relationship with the maisam team.”
