In order to get the most out of your ERP system, it is to your benefit that you remain on the most current version of Costpoint. Deltek Costpoint 7.0.1 and Budgeting and Planning 6.1 will be entering Sustaining Support on July 1st, 2020. Additionally, Time and Expense 9.0.1 will enter Sustaining Support on January 1st, 2021. Now, it is the best time to upgrade your system to the latest version of Costpoint and Time & Expense to avoid going unsupported.
The upgrade from Costpoint 7.0.1 is significant, it includes numerous benefits over your old, soon to be unsupported system (support for additional browsers, support for mobile, extensibility, and more.)
Upgrading to T&E 10 will be a major adjustment for all of your employees as all timesheet users are now poised to become Costpoint users. By converging Time & Expense with Costpoint into one, single architecture, the interface becomes more common and consistent, delivering users a seamless experience. IT professionals can additionally now leverage Costpoint extensibility, web services, and create personalized user interfaces for their project teams.
So, are you ready to upgrade? Our recommendation is to ensure you have a plan in place (test plan, training plan, and a deployment plan) to maximize the benefits and reduce risks in rolling out to these new versions.
