Overall Satisfaction with Unanet

We use Unanet across the organization from time sheets to expense reports to financials to project management.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
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.
Unanet is particularly well suited to the government contracting space. It could better support businesses that build products even if it meant integrating with a third party product.
