Unanet power user for energy consulting company

What do you like best?

Easy of use, flexibility, and customization are all strong point of Unanet. It also work well in a project based environment.

What do you dislike?

Security access and rights can be a bit tricky in the project based environment. Unanet is very robust in its standardized data imports and exports but, approval level and approval paths can get a bit tricky due to the different types of approval path available. This isn't really a dislike but prior planning is a must to get the security layers to mesh properly.

A great innovative product that is much more than your average project accounting system.

What do you like best?

Unanet is a true ERP system that can be used to combine several business units into one. Most project accounting systems are typically only used by accounting departments. However, unlike most systems, Unanet is built to allow access to just about every department in an organization with its role based capabilities. I like the fact that every person in the company is given the capability to create and save their own reports in addition to having personalized dashboards to satisfy specific business needs. The system is only as good as the data it is being fed. That being said, in order to optimize the system's value, its essential that the entire organization buys into the system and utilizes it like a true ERP system.

What do you dislike?

Unanet has very strong project accounting reports to manage projects efficiently. However, I would like to see a bit more from the financial side of the system. For example the system does not have a cash flow statement which is essential for most organizations. That being said, I am impressed with the current financials in place as it was just introduced 2015. I believe in a few years the system will be nearly perfect for any organization as in continues to innovate its capabilities.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

First off, it helps provide information specific for every business unit in an organization. Normally, everyone relies on accounting or finance to provide them with project financial reports. Unanet allows everyone access to reports specific to their roles in the system that are managed by the system administrator or controller. Another advantage the system brings is its resource planning capabilities. The system allows different departments the capability of creating their own budgets that when approved, can be combined into a corporate budget.

Unanet Review

What do you like best?

Unanet is fairly easy to use due to the consolidated database and system. DSO has decreased 5-8 days. Financial Planning and Forecasting are fairly intuitive in Unanet.

What do you dislike?

Unanet has limited Financial Reporting options. No Cash Flow. Planning features for FFP contracts make it difficult to lock down plans.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Unanet does not have a PO or inventory system so unless you are happy with a Frankenstein system, I would consider another system if your company is mainly retail, wholesale, or manufacturing. Unanet is best suited for a mid sized company whose operations are geared primarily for services. I would recommend Unanet to any service based company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As stated before, DSO has been reduced. We migrated from a bolted together system to all in one Unanet. It makes administration a lot easier giving more time for analysis. We have migrated in stride from having almost no Financial Planning to having a dynamic set of reports that estimate various outcomes.

Unanet can be used to manage and plan your projects 

What do you like best?

It has very nice reporting features and fully customizable dashboards. It lets everyone know on what projects they have to work upon and what the billable hours are for every individual on that project.

Creating timesheets is easy as the User Interface is pretty simple and straightforward to use. Thus, it avoids any unnecessary confusion while submitting timesheets.

Alert system allows the project team to know how much percentage of the time allocated for the project has been already consumed .

What do you dislike?

Unanet is not providing Gantt charts for project management.

Also I feel that there are lots of buttons on a single screen which makes it difficult to look for a particular button instantly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It can be used for checking the time spent on various ongoing projects. Since they provide a demo for their services, you can try the demo first.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Unanet has helped in Project management through time tracking. It helps in analyzing which projects have been delivered or completed in the given deadline, and which are not. It can be used by organziations who pays the employees according to the hours of work done by them and needs the billing to be done as per hours. Also by using the Alert feature I can get to know about how much time has been already consumed for the project.

Very satisfied with Unanet Financials

What do you like best?

I like having all our data in one place. Our PM's, Executives, Accounting and Contracts are all working from the same data, in real time, reducing errors and reconciliations across functions. The PM reporting is great and brought a singular style to the org. The monthly Close process is very smooth and takes days a lot less time.

What do you dislike?

It took me a while to get use to some of the features around reports. This is because the system can pull so many types of report and then slice that data into more refined results. I should have spent more time on it, not Unanet's fault. Once you get the hang of it, it is easy, and much easier than other systems (you don't need to know a code language to pull reports in Unanet).

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend Unanet to other service related companies, especially GovCon's. I have used all the GovCon accounting systems; Unanet is by far the easiest to implement, easiest to use and they are constantly adding new features. They listen to customer feedback and add items, like being able to run indirect rate calculations on your budget. We are very happy we went with Unanet! I can provide real time data to stakeholders quickly. Our staff has adapted to the product with ease.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The biggest problem we solved was centralized, real time data. We also are more efficient as we can close quicker, process invoices faster and plan resources easier. This allows quicker decisions and we're working off of current data instead of older data (for the longer close).

Finally! An easy to use and timesaving solution for the Govcon industry.

What do you like best?

We can finally see and report on real-time data and take the appropriate action (when needed) in a timely manner. Billing is seamless and easy to complete. Month-end closing can be performed in just a few short steps. Being in one single system is great! Multiple windows can be opened up on a computer at one time for review of past transactions. Project alerts are a great resource for our project managers to monitor funding. You can attach multiple files and file types to expense reports. The payroll file and export is easy to generate. The Unanet Knowledge Center is phenomenal and a great resource for all of our users. We have been able to reduce the number of excel tracking spreadsheets by at least 50%.

What do you dislike?

No cashflow statement yet. We have to run and save an AP Aging report on the very last day of the month in order to have it tie to our month-end Balance Sheet. There are sometimes penny rounding issues in Billing that affect T&M invoices only. There are a few reports that you can't export to a pdf or excel file. However, our Unanet consultants helped us understand (and helped us build solutions for) all of these issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you decide to implement Unanet, appoint someone in your office to act as a Project Manager to keep the implementation process on-track. Talk to the Unanet Consultants and thoroughly explain your reporting needs before implementing. This will help to avoid any historical data upload issues.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Real-time data and reporting for our managers. Better insight into account profitability and funding levels. Future financial forecasting on each project can be done in Unanet. Greatly reduced the number of excel tracking spreadsheets. Huge time savings for our accounting staff. Time savings for our end users working on-site for our customers.
