Comments: Just implemented Unanet for our accounting and project management system. Overall it's a good system, with phenomenal reporting capabilities. The time and expense side for end users is very intuitive and easy to use. The PM side is a bit of a learning curve, but the implementation team works with you hand in hand to support. GREAT support overall!

Pros: Easy to import and export - plays well with multiple systems and they've done a great job of keeping it open. Excellent charts and reports for Program Managers (PMs), as well as people in accounting who are doing billing, project reporting, and financials.

Cons: Sometimes I am not sure of the sequence of steps and have to look it up, but it's all well documented in their online knowledge center with many examples, not just the old "a targeted rate is a planned rate."

Overall: Unanet makes it easy for employees to complete their timesheets, allows notes and includes the audit trail requirements for DCAA Compliance. But what I like best is the way it supports Program Managers, who can get REAL TIME reporting from a huge number of reports and charts. You can also set budget hours at employee level or task level, preventing overruns and labor transfers.

Recommendations to other buyers: I like that I can recommend it to QuickBooks users for Time Tracking and Expense, and then when they outgrow QuickBooks they can upgrade to Financials.

Must Have for Small Business

Pros: Unanet allows my small business to act and think big! The tool allows me to plan tasks, track projects, allocate resources, hours per each task, forecast business revenue, calculate business expenses with graphics and quick and simple reports. Effectively I have a project management and finance department all at my fingertips. The tool allows you to meet your business growth seamlessly.

Cons: Some might consider this overkill for an organization of less than 10 people, due to the initial cost and the learning curve. I personally found the value of the information provided by Unanet to be worth the investment and time.

Overall: Easy to use and designate different roles in your organization. Integrates neatly with Quick Books for invoicing. Gives real time information about your business without having to dedicate overhead resources to project management and finance. Available template reports and graphics allow for ease of management of overall business on a daily basis. Great value for your money.

Customer Support

Pros: The Unanet product, we use the full product suite, is easy to implement, configure, and use. It provides numerous options for configuration that supports a wide range of users from simple to complex. We began using it purely for timekeeping and expense reporting to meet Federal Government contracting requirements. We now employ a much greater range of features including the use of it as our project management tool.

The product integrates with our accounting system (Aldebaron's SYMPAQ) with minimal customization.

Unanet Technologies is a very responsive and customer friendly company. They regularly solicit input from their users for the development of new features. They conduct an annual user meeting to demonstrate functionality, provide an opportunity to dialog with their customers, and provide value-added presentations. Customer support is very responsive when questions are posed or problems arise.

Cons: There are some functional limitations around reporting at the task level which is important for our company in order to use the full capabilities of the tool. Unanet has listend to the concerns and are working a solution for future release.

There are other minor limitations related to how we operate our business, but I would not considre a product flaw.

Overall: I highly recommmend Unanet as a product and a company to do business with.

Customer Support

Pros: We have been using Unanet for a couple of years now and just continue to find more and more capabilities for our needs. Unanet has a very flexible database that allows us to customize the system to suit our needs, as well as having a very mature system right out of the 'box.' We use the timekeeping function, the expense reporting function, the budgeting/planning functions, as well as the EVM tools. Unanet has a wide range of uses and we are very happy with the system.

Cons: The only complaint that we have about Unanet is that the 'Project Costing Reports' do NOT break out costs by task. This is something that we have recommended to Unanet as a feature upgrade, when they do their new releases, but we haven't seen it come out yet.

Overall: I would recommend Unanet to any company that has the need for a project management tool.

DCAA / EVM compliant timekeeping and project management system

Customer Support

Pros: Extremely strong timekeeping capabilities down the the task level
Granular permissions for all levels of the organization
Excellent reporting structure on all aspects of personnel and projects
Easily customizable export features
Ability to easily import data for people, projects, etc
Robust integration from timekeeping, planning, projects and tasks
Cost Effective solution with "pay as you go" model
Availability and uptime near 100% (hosted)
Excellent customer support (including complex reporting, exports, etc)
The abililty to "slice and dice" data to meeting government, commercial and internal reporting requirements
Ability to add cost structures based on company actuals (DCAA-G&A, Overhead and Fringe)
Robust expense reporting eliminating "paper expense reports"

Cons: Not able to export reports (need to cut and paste)
Tech support should provide a "tiered" pricing structure (currently one rate for all support)

Overall: Unanet is good for both small and large companies and provides a single repository for all timekeeping, project, planning and personnel data with robust reporting. The integration of multiple platforms (time, project) is well executed and allows companies to see what is happening at the project/task level in real time.

Expense reporting that meeting federal government travel regulations and granular permissions to ensure that users only apply expenses to those projects for which they have been assigned

This is a strong product as it combines both the compliance (DCAA, EVM, JTR) and ensures that timekeeping, expenses and project reporting are accurate. It allows the delegation of responsbilities for cost rate, bill rate and project managment increase productivity and visibility.
