Unanet

UNANET is very well suited for time and expense entry and reporting on the project and task levels. This is one of the strong points in my experience. It's also very intuitive in the administrator role. I'm the main administer for UNANET and in my experience the system has been extremely intuitive and easy to manage

Pros

  • User customization for each individual and their responsibilities
  • Great support staff and update capabilities
  • You can see the early stages of the project and see it through in a clean and organized way

  • Near real-time visibility into project financials. As soon as the employees save their time for the day, you can get a good measure of project financial performance. Work authorizations are embedded into Unanet so unintentional overruns are virtually eliminated.
  • Nice integration with the Joint Travel Regulations. It is easy to import the latest rate tables for both CONUS and OCONUS destinations.
  • Good customer support and highly responsive. Webinars on new features are free and broadcast on a regular basis. Feedback to suggestions for new features are addressed in a very timely fashion.
  • It is easy to structure Unanet to support DCAA practices to be able to get approval for cost plus jobs.
  • With exports to .csv files, it is easy to extract data for further analysis beyond the relatively rich built-in reporting features.

Cons

  • Sometimes anyone who has touched a project still receive notification even if they don't need it
  • Having to manually enter information from other areas

  • 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

I evaluated several options and narrowed my search to Unanet, Big Time, Journyx, and Harvest. I had a demonstration by all but three (one did not offfer a demonstration that fit my needs) and I made a comparison worksheet of the features, costs, implementation time, support, integration with our existing finance software, and portability. We then made a final decision by committee that Unanet was the best fit for our needs and expectations

Return on Investment

  • It's probably too early to fairly answer this question. Exporting and Importing billing information has reduced the time spent in creating customer invoices. Which presumably leads to shorter collection time. This frees up more time during the accounting cycle for other activities. I'm hoping that as we further use Unanet's capabilities we will see a marked improvement in the billing process.
  • Once staff got comfortable with Unanet, there was an increase in job satisfaction. Staff reported the system was easy to learn and use. Staff use it to submit request PTO so the one-stop-shop works for them.
  • We're still working on reports, but this was one of the features we liked about Unanet when we made the decision to purchase it. I'm excited about real time reporting capabilities in Unanet. It will allow project managers to more effectively assign and track resources applied to individual projects, practice leaders to measure profitability by person, product line, customer, or any manner of criteria, and assist the executive team in making fully informed business decisions.
