AceProject

It is well suited if you have a specific work force or are working in a production or an assembly line style environment. It is also well suited if you have small teams that have to get out a certain amount of product in set periods of time. AceProjects is great for monitoring how long each individual spent on their specific task and subsequently how long the team took to complete their work.

Unanet

As I said, Unanet is great for timekeeping and expense reporting. It's very easy to navigate and intuitive for my staff to use. On the other hand, reports are a challenge. The ones that are "canned" only come out as PDFs so I find I waste a lot of paper each month. Customized reports are better and come in Excel, but setting them up is not that easy. We've been working with Unanet just over a year. We went "live" effective 1/1/2017 and we're still avoiding the reporting functions even though that was one of the main reasons we purchased Unanet in the first place

Pros

  • Time Tracking
  • Resource allocation
  • Easy to implement, small adoption curve.

  • Unanet integrates with our current ARP system which allow the changes made in Dynamics to flow over to Unanet which ensures accuracy between systems.
  • The ability to export and import templates is a very strong feature of Unanet as well. We deal with many changes in assignments, additions of projects, importing of time from legacy systems, and countless other bulk data uploads which are handled extremely well by the import and export features. This is one of the more important strengths in the Unanet system in my view.
  • Reporting is also a very strong feature in Unanet. Besides the volume of project, accounting, and user reports, the ability to save individual reports with such detailed criteria is a great benefit. Most if not all of our project managers have their own personalized reports which allow them to drill down and view data their on their preferred level.

Cons

  • Expand on data tracking
  • Improve report generation
  • Break out from just being a time clock manager.

  • No support for MRP for production, bill of materials, inventory, etc. While service oriented companies don't need this, this would be helpful for companies that also have product lines.
  • Limited reporting support for vendors and customers although some of this is expected in the next release.
  • Current lack of interactive reports to support drill down to get additional detail about certain records or transactions. This is planned for the next release so we'll see how well this is supported.
  • No support for adding supporting documents/attachments to previously posted entries without voiding them and reentering them. We sometimes get receipts and even invoices a few days after the entry is made and posted.
  • No real support for capitalized assets for depreciation calculations. We currently do this outside of Unanet, but it would be nice if it was integrated.

Alternatives Considered

We were used to Deltek's Costpoint from the prior company and Unanet is far easier to use for users, accounting personnel, project managers, and corporate managers. Continuous enhancements lead us to believe that Unanet will be even better in meeting our needs.

Return on Investment

  • We were able to track our production teams work and refine our methods to improve deliverable dates.
  • Once our staff reached a certain size the capability of the software began to lag. Diminishing returns.
  • The lack of reporting features made data regression and extrapolation difficult.

  • While we acquired professional services initially to integrate with Quickbooks and then to switch to Financials, the costs were reasonable and the consultants were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We were able to maintain DCAA compliance under both configuations.
  • Timely project financials make it easy to manage potential cost overruns.
  • We are still hoping to be able to support production jobs and are looking forward to the next Champions Conference to see what others have done to address that market as well as what potential future enhancements with Unanet will allow us to address this market.
