Fast Growing Accounting and Advisory Firm Smart Devine Chooses Deltek Maconomy

HERNDON, Va. – December 6, 2011 –Deltek, Inc. (Nasdaq: PROJ), the leading global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for government contractors and professional services firms, today announced that Smart Devine, a certified public accounting, tax and advisory services firm based in Philadelphia, has chosen Deltek Maconomy as its integrated financial and practice management system. Deltek will provide the growing firm with a unified ERP platform as the foundation for firm profitability and control as it rapidly expands its business.  

Smart Devine provides a full range of services in accounting, tax, business advisory, forensic and litigation support across a broad range of industries.  In October, Smart Devine and its entity Nihill & Riedley announced the two companies would be rebranding and relocating under the name, Smart Devine.  The newly branded organization will offer expanded services in accounting, tax and business advisory. 

With significant growth planned, Smart Devine understood that it needed to lay a solid foundation for managing its business with an enterprise level ERP solution that could not only address its needs today, but would also offer flexibility as the firm looked to expand and pursue new business offerings.  Smart Devine will leverage Deltek’s deep experience working with CPA firms as it embarks on its Deltek implementation and long-term growth strategy. 
“After researching a number of vendors, we ultimately chose Deltek because it offered an integrated solution that exceeded our operational and financial requirements,” said Chris Barbier, Director of Technology Services, Smart Devine. 

Rich Devine, Chief Operating Officer, added, “Our expectation with a comprehensive ERP solution is to increase efficiency throughout the firm.  It became very clear during the vendor selection process that Deltek is the leading project-based solution for the accounting industry worldwide. Deltek’s depth in the professional services marketplace and experience in the accounting industry in particular made us confident that we will have a solid financial and practice management solution that will serve our firm now and into the future.” 

“We are thrilled to add Smart Devine to our rapidly growing customer list of leading accounting firms in the U.S, and around the globe,” says Hugo Dorph, EVP and General Manager of Deltek’s Professional Services business unit.  “Deltek is proud of our record of success in the accounting industry in particular, and looks forward to continuing to partner with firms to offer solutions that drive more business visibility, efficiency and profitability.”
