Kona Business, Deltek’s Social Collaboration Platform for the Enterprise, Gaining Increasing Momentum with Companies Worldwide

Deltek’s social collaboration platform has been purchased by more than 100 companies around the globe, for better project and group collaboration and communication

DALLAS — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 16, 2013 — Deltek, the leading global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for professional services firms and government contractors, today announced that over 100 companies around the globe have purchased its Kona Business social collaboration platform during its first three months of availability. Kona Business enables firms to drive better communication, collaboration, and knowledge-sharing around key projects, groups and business initiatives. Companies including Aercoustics Engineering Limited, Fieldstone A&E, ECOM Engineering, Inc., and EDI, Ltd. are using Kona Business to connect the dots between people and processes through easy-to-use conversation spaces, task lists, common calendars and file-sharing.

With Kona Business, project conversations, key deliverables, important documents, and major milestones are all collected and unified in context, so teams can identify issues, solve problems, and keep everyone up to date on the status of deadlines and deliverables. Delivered through a secure cloud-based architecture, Kona Business offers organizations both a project and task management platform and a social networking solution to drive alignment across the business.

The platform allows companies to collaborate more effectively with people inside and outside of the organization to crowd source ideas that drive faster and better decisions. Internally, the platform helps streamline and improve numerous collaborative activities, including processes such as the onboarding of new employees, allowing new team members to be more productive and billable faster.

“After learning about the free version of Kona at Deltek Insight 2012 and putting it to use, Aercoustics upgraded to Kona Business to benefit from the added company focused enhancements and to centralize control of all company information being stored on Kona. We have created several spaces in Kona that are focused on specific initiatives with defined goals that we hope to achieve over the next few years. These include planning future company improvements, tracking for leads and contracts at trade shows, and internal initiatives such as planning IT upgrades. Having the conversations and documents all in one organized place has proven incredibly useful so far and much better than our more manual collaboration processes from the past,” said Steve Titus, Aercoustics. “We had considered using other commercially available software, but would have had to purchase licenses for everyone and find a central place to store the database. Kona gave us strong collaboration functionality at an attractive price. All in all, it is a great fit for our business.”

Kona Business is also connected to Deltek’s enterprise software solutions, helping to expose critical information, plans and status updates from Deltek’s applications in an easily viewable, collaborative way. Kona Business is offered as a bundled package with Deltek’s market-leading solutions, or can also be purchased as a standalone platform.
