About the Customer
DPS Engineering & Construction Ltd. provides project management and engineering services to pharmaceutical and biotechnology, medical technologies, oil and gas, advanced technology, science and education, food and beverage, and energy sectors worldwide.
The company was founded in 1974 and is based in Little Island, Ireland. It also has locations worldwide.
Scope and Challenges
DPS has over 1,200 employees globally across most major regions including Ireland, UK, North America, Middle East, and the Asia Pacific. Managing the company’s operations with this significant growth had become challenging due to disparate systems and manual processes, and the firm required a best-in-class solution to unify all operations, support its new business structure and scale with its projected future growth.
The company was seeking a solution to unify its operations, improve resource management and ensure a future-proof infrastructure for the business.
Outcome and Implications
Following a comprehensive evaluation of potential solutions, DPS Engineering selected Deltek in 2016.
Deltek project ERP helped DPS to maintain project transparency and control, reduce the duplication of effort and minimize lost opportunities. In addition, the Deltek solution improved resource management and allowed DPS to optimally schedule each of its resources, and highlight in advance where new talent is needed as its project portfolio expands.
“We approached Deltek to discuss a number of challenges that we faced from an administrative perspective, and right from the beginning, it was clear its team understood our issues and could provide the expertise and technology we were looking for. DPS Engineering had just gone through a full restructure as a result of our significant growth, yet we were still operating predominantly on legacy systems, Excel spreadsheets, and manual processes. We needed a business solution that would effectively and efficiently support our entire business – now and in the future – and Deltek delivered just that,” said Cathal Farrelly, Group Engineering Director at DPS Engineering.
