Unanet Signs New ERP Agreement with GovCon Leader, MPF Federal

Jun 28, 2021

Dulles, VA, June 28, 2021 – Unanet, the leading SaaS project-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) provider, today announced it has signed a new ERP agreement with MPF Federal, a government contractor (GovCon) supporting a wide range of agencies including the Department of Defense, U.S. Food and Drug Administration and many others. By implementing Unanet’s project-based ERP, MPF Federal will have one complete system to manage projects, billing, forecasting, expenses and additional business functions. A woman-owned, SBA Hub Zone company, MPF Federal began less than a decade ago to support government agencies with training and technical services, research, life science support, program management, IT and other systems management. In its earliest stage, MPF Federal was able to manage its own internal systems through off-the-shelf software designed for small businesses. However, as the company experienced significant growth, it became clear small business software wouldn’t suffice. “We couldn’t gather insight into profitability, job cost and other KPIs, and our system was limited in handling other critical business needs, so we searched for a comprehensive ERP solution that was purpose-built for the government contracting industry,” said Kim Franklin, controller for MPF Federal. “Unanet came highly recommended for its ease-of-use and excellent customer service. We think Unanet will be a game-changer for our business.” When MPF Federal rolls out the Unanet ERP system to its employee base this summer, it will have new efficiency, controls, billing integrity and accuracy among all of its business functions. Project managers will have real-time data to analyze projects, and the executive team will be able to forecast and model budgets, P&L and staffing needs. “MPF Federal has proven itself to be an invaluable support to dozens of government agencies, but like many other expanding, successful businesses, it quickly grew out of off-the-shelf software,” said Kim Koster, vice president of GovCon product marketing for Unanet. “They took the time to consider what their needs were, and what they wanted their ERP system to do, and we took to the time to listen. We’re thrilled MPF Federal chose to implement Unanet, and we look forward to watching them grow and succeed further.” Unanet’s ERP allows GovCons to control complexity and compliance with one streamlined platform. It has consistently been touted by industry analyst groups and business leaders as the best project-based ERP. Most recently, Unanet ERP was named the Gold-level winner in the American Business Awards for ERP solutions.

Unanet Signs Major ERP Agreement with Healthcare GovCon Sierra7

Jun 07, 2021

Firm expects Unanet’s ERP to improve month-end reporting, provide project insights DULLES, VA, June 7, 2021 — Unanet, the leading SaaS project-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) provider, today announced that Sierra7, a premier healthcare services and IT consulting firm that works with a variety of major federal and state government agencies including the Department of Veteran’s Affairs, has gone live with Unanet’s ERP solution. With Unanet, Sierra7 will operate more efficiently and have greater insights into project management. Sierra7 will realize immediate benefits in its monthly financial management, which has traditionally been a time-consuming and manual process. Additionally, Sierra7 will now have real-time data on their projects, providing key insights to project position, time-to-completion, revenue, and resources. “We were impressed with Unanet right off the bat. Their sales team brought in subject matter experts to have the right conversations with us at the right time. Unanet’s implementation process is incredibly flexible, and the team was dedicated to listening to and understanding our unique needs,” said Frank Rendon, chief financial officer, Sierra7. “When we were assessing ERP solutions, support was a key part of our grading criteria, and Unanet’s superior support offerings exceeded those expectations. Unanet’s next-level functionality, product roadmap, training options through Unanet University and support are all why we chose the Unanet solution.” Before Unanet, Sierra7 managed their business management processes in systems such as Sage and QuickBooks. Closing the books for their 50+ projects every month was a challenge, typically taking weeks and putting project managers behind with little ability to plan ahead. After merging with another company, they quickly realized the necessity of an intuitive, single platform to consolidate all this information. “With clients like the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Defense, and federal civilian agencies, all of which demand accuracy and precision, Sierra7 is meeting their critical needs with its Unanet ERP implementation,” said Assad Jarrahian, chief product officer, Unanet. “Unanet is successful when our customers are successful, and we are increasingly winning over leading GovCon companies like Sierra7 to provide their business with new advanced functionality, real-time insights, and industry-leading service.” To learn more about Unanet ERP and other solutions for GovCons, please visit www.unanet.com.

With Unanet’s CRM and ERP, GovCons are empowered with industry-leading tools for business success. “Now GovCons can break out of siloed systems and have holistic project and client management functionality,” said Craig Halliday, CEO of Unanet. “When they can see the full view of their entire customer lifecycle, they are able to make smarter business decisions, operate more efficiently, and deliver better results overall.” Unlike traditional CRM tools, Unanet delivers early market intelligence data powered by GovTribe, which allows GovCons to strategically plan their pursuits by searching opportunities and identifying current solicitations, down to the specifics of dates, requirements, and estimated award value. Once project pursuits are researched through GovTribe, GovCons are able to track and work the opportunities and deliver award-winning proposals that reflect deep insight and past performance. After a project is awarded, GovCons can then manage it with Unanet ERP, while still linking back to the CRM data for detailed and fluid project management. “This partnership will provide a best-in-class, fully integrated market research capability for Unanet CRM customers,” said Nate Nash, CEO of GovTribe. “We see great value in the combined offering and look forward to better serving the government contracting community.” Unanet CRM for GovCon is the result of innovation stemming from the recent acquisition of the award-winning CRM software company, Cosential.
