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 because you can account for almost every single minute of your day with detailed descriptions attached. The reporting of time came in very good use when clients questioned billing.
  • Robust billing portal that was pretty customizable.
  • Could track employee costs well once the correct numbers were placed into the system. Came in very handy for billing and company budgeting and projections.

  • 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

  • The overall layout and physical design of the portals could be simplified greatly. The program is anything but intuitive to use.
  • I found myself clicking what felt like a 1,000 times just to complete one small task. Billing was very cumbersome and the program did not integrate smoothly with Quickbooks as was previously promised.
  • Saving and making templates for billing etc. was a tedious process that also cost extra!
  • The program is as good as what you put into it, but they designed the software for a more particular one-sided way to work and manage, so it made customizing a project to your companies methods tricky.
  • Overall a very cumbersome program that looks as if it was designed at the start of the millennium and note 16 years into it.

  • Would like to be able to search for users by first name as well as last name.
  • Would like to be able to modify save and share some of the canned reports.

Alternatives Considered

I love Harvest, especially compared to Archioffice. It's very intuitive, simply designed and easy to use. Perhaps the billing isn't as robust or customizable as Archi, but I would take it over Archi any day.

Unanet achieves all of our project based time management in one platform extremely well, which is what the goal was from the start. The previous platforms I have managed needed additional modules and significant resources to achieve the same result as Unanet

Return on Investment

  • It positively organized our time tracking and the reporting was robust enough to use for client meetings.
  • It negatively took up more time to do certain tasks that shouldn't be so time consuming.

  • Unanet has had a very significant ROI on several fronts. Our payroll department spends much less time managing and processing time in general.
  • Unanet has allowed all of the project managers teams bill on a much more granular level which has saved significant time over the previous Excel based processes of gathering project level data.
  • Using Unanet companywide has also saved many hours of time that were previously spent translating data from other platforms, and consolidating data via Excel for reporting purposes. Using the same tool (Unanet) with the included reports has saved significant time and hassle which has had an enormous impact on the ROI of Unanet.
