Improvements reflect input from large A&E firms like VHB
Minneapolis, MN — April 19, 2016 — EleVia Software, a Central Consulting Group company that specializes in add-on products for Deltek Vision® ERP system, recently released version 3.0 of its EleVia Payables Approval & Tracking (PAT) software.
The product makes it easier for architecture and engineering firms to track and approve subcontractor invoices and other payables. PAT 3.0 gives clients additional functionality to further streamline the payables process.
“As a controller, I appreciate the new ability to save searches,” said Stephen Dinn, controller at Boston-based engineering firm VHB, which processes nearly 20,000 payables invoices annually and served as a PAT 3.0 beta site. “I have to co-sign any vendor check over $5,000. With PAT 3.0, I can search for issued checks greater than $5,000 and review the supporting vendor invoices online prior to signing the check. If I don’t get to all the checks at once, I can save the search and come back to it. That’s a big time saver,” Dinn noted.

“The PAT 3.0 improvements are a direct result of client input,” said Steve Stolz, Chief Technology Officer at EleVia Software. “We’ve been serving the architecture and engineering industry for years, so we have a good grasp of how to streamline our clients’ processes, but there’s always fine-tuning that can make a product even better. We have regular, ongoing dialogue with our clients so we can continually fine-tune and make our clients even more productive.”
VHB’s Dinn said EleVia’s knowledge of the architecture and engineering industry was a key reason the firm chose EleVia’s payables product over two other products they researched. “EleVia’s experts came up through the A&E space, so they understand our lingo, our organizational structure and our business challenges,” Dinn said. “They understand the Deltek Vision environment and provide products that work seamlessly with Vision so we can avoid costly integration fees, and be up and running quickly.”
