SAWTST | November 17, 2022

Deltek, the leading global provider of software and solutions for project-based businesses, announced today that SAWTST, a small business government contracting firm, has selected Deltek Costpoint and Deltek Talent Management to power its growth by streamlining and automating processes and efficiencies, while staying compliant with the federal government.

The firm's legacy is built on service with its executive and senior management team, composed primarily of military veterans. The company employs professionals that are a mix of veterans from all services and experienced industry professionals that have consistently delivered exceptional results in the Defense environment. SAWTST knew it was time to upgrade its ERP system to streamline and automate processes and reporting, as well as to scale for its long-term growth plans. The system it was using was too manual and time-consuming – employees were burdened with siloed processes. SAWTST needed a single solution that could support functional areas including contracts management and procurement. They were looking for a new ERP partner that would deliver more innovation and greater intelligence through an all-in-one system across the entire project lifecycle. In addition, SAWTST wanted better, out-of-the-box reporting, designed for government contractors. By switching to Deltek, SAWTST anticipates Costpoint will be its one-stop-shop for mission-critical data and save them a full-time staff member due to Costpoint's automation.

Additionally, the integrated cloud offering enables the secure storage of data and is consistently enhanced to meet the most up-to-date governmental and agency cybersecurity compliance standards including NIST 800-171. "Being a CFO and part of a finance team at a government contractor requires special skills and understanding of the unique government requirements for finance and accounting, How we handle our project information – and our accounting, finances, and reporting – requires the right partnerships with those that know how the government thinks. We need software that makes it easy for us to be efficient and connects the entire company to our project data for a single source of the truth. And we have found that with Deltek. After demoing the software and doing our research, it's clear that Deltek is miles ahead of the competition and the gold standard for government contractors. It's a big decision to move your ERP, especially after just 3 years with another provider. It's a lot of work and I've felt like Deltek has been by my side the entire time. We know it will be well worth our time and money in the end, We are excited to be in person at Deltek ProjectCon 2022 with Deltek experts and other government contractors who have been in our shoes before. We are building great relationships and getting a jump start on our solution training." -Debra Hadley, Chief Financial Officer at SAWTST.
