Over 60 government contractors and architecture and engineering firms have purchased Deltek Connect for Microsoft Outlook since it was released; enhanced solution is now compatible with Microsoft Outlook 2010
HERNDON, VA – March 18, 2011 – Deltek, Inc. (Nasdaq: PROJ), today announced the availability of an enhanced version of Deltek Connect for Microsoft Outlook that is now compatible with Outlook 2010. Connect for Microsoft Outlook integrates Deltek Vision, Deltek Costpoint, and GovWin CRM with Microsoft Outlook, enabling business development and marketing professionals to perform important Vision, Costpoint, and GovWin CRM tasks in Microsoft Outlook, ensuring that all sales and marketing activities are recorded in one CRM system of record.
Connect for Microsoft Outlook offers numerous innovative capabilities, allowing business development professionals to manage their business appointments, emails and contacts, as well as manage clients, activities and opportunities – all from Microsoft Outlook. By enabling personnel to manage their CRM records directly in Microsoft Outlook, user adoption of Deltek CRM can expand significantly within organisations that use both solutions.
Connect for Microsoft Outlook was created in partnership with InvisibleCRM – a leading technology custom solutions developer. Leveraging technology from InvisibleCRM, Deltek was able to successfully launch Connect for Microsoft Outlook in 2010.

"With Connect for Microsoft Outlook, our users have more power and can access data through a familiar environment, making adoption of this new solution smooth and simple. We didn’t have to change what we do, but overall, we're much more efficient.”
