Connection is an opportunity for innovation
As organizations continue to identify point solutions to meet their specific company or industry needs, the necessity to connect those solutions to the top of the ERP mothership is increasing. It’s essential for ERP solutions to continue to offer expansive integration capabilities for key players and businesses to communicate with each other effectively. Deltek’s Chief Product Officer Warren Linscott, and Chief Technology Officer Mike Scopa, demonstrated Deltek’s integration capabilities on the Deltek ProjectCon mainstage with the official release of Deltek Unionpoint – a new integration platform built to help Deltek customers connect to other Deltek products and third-party connectors to leverage all the solutions in their tech stack.

Customers are in the driver’s seat when it comes to feature functionality
Customer feedback not only helps fuel innovation but is critical for Deltek to ensure it is building product capabilities that help customers deliver on their objectives. There are many ways companies obtain user feedback and capture what their customers would like to see in a product – and at Deltek ProjectCon, customers had an opportunity to provide that feedback in UX Labs, meeting with Deltek Experts 1:1, and attendees were able to test-drive the Ideas Portals that were launched earlier this year. The interactive Idea Portals are available for most Deltek solutions, with more scheduled to launch in the near future.
