Why now is the best time to migrate to Deltek Costpoint – Part 1 Support

by Colin Quinn

If you’re reading this, chances are you have received a letter mailed from Deltek CEO, Michael Corkery back in October describing Deltek’s future plans for their GCS support services.

The most common concerns we have received have been:

What exactly do the support changes mean for the immediate future? What does this mean for current users?

For now, users do not have anything to be concerned about, sure back in October there was a change to Maintenance Support but that shouldn’t have any immediate impact on current users.

What do they mean for the next few years?

The change that should scare users is coming April 2018, when Deltek will be switching all users to Sustained Support. This will impact users

And where do current GCS Premier users go from here?

Now is the best time for companies currently on GCS to evaluate their current system and their goals for the future.

So what can you do now to prepare for the end of support in April?

Get Ready – We encourage all current clients to exercise caution when evaluating the needs of their next project accounting solution. There are many other options on the market but often the cheap, easy, and inexpensive solution to Costpoint will cost you twice as much in the long run.
