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.

Unanet A/E Wins ERP Agreement with True North Solutions and Helps Them Replace Outdated Technology

May 25, 2021

Growing international engineering firm moves to purpose-built platform with real-time reporting and multi-currency capabilities Dulles, VA, May 25, 2021 – Unanet A/E, the leading SaaS project-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) provider purpose-built for the architecture and engineering (A/E) industries, today announced it has signed a new agreement with True North Solutions, a growing engineering control system design firm with offices in the U.S. and Canada. Unanet A/E will replace True North’s disparate business management systems with one simple-to-use platform that provides a single source of business information with real-time, interactive insights for data-driven business decisions. True North will be replacing a variety of basic systems including QuickBooks, Tenrox and homegrown spreadsheets which the company had used to manage its business at the earliest stages. As the company grew, it needed to upgrade to a more comprehensive ERP system that could provide actionable insights, business intelligence, improved reporting and better visibility into project health, resource management and more. After reviewing a variety of industry-leading ERP options, it selected Unanet A/E for its ease-of-use, service-oriented team, intuitive reporting and analytic capabilities, and overall transparency. Because True North operates internationally, Unanet A/E’s built-in multi-currency and multi-company capabilities will enable it to manage its growing business across borders with simple and seamless accounting and invoicing. “As our firm expands, it has quickly become clear we needed improved reporting, project visibility, resource planning and management that simply wasn’t possible with the basic technology tools we currently have implemented,” said Blair Hanel, President, True North Solutions. “Unanet A/E will give us reports and dashboards with real-time information so we can easily and quickly track project updates and make decisions based on up-to-date information. And most importantly, as we continue to grow domestically and internationally, we know Unanet A/E will scale and expand with us.” True North offers its clients expanded services in cybersecurity, IoT, analytics, commissioning, industrial telecom, electrical, mechanical and process engineering. Its commitment to honesty and integrity align with Unanet’s core values and collaborative team approach. Additionally, because Unanet A/E’s technology will offer more real-time data updates, project management and insight, True North can offer even more transparency to its clients. “We frequently hear about companies running their large-scale businesses with tools that simply can’t keep up with their rate of growth. When it becomes time to make the digital transition to more sophisticated business management, our trusted team takes the time to explain and educate businesses about how ERP systems can benefit them, and builds a solution that works for them and integrates easily, rather than forcing them to adapt their company to the system,” said Matt Pantana, SVP of Product for Unanet A/E. “Purpose-built technology and a knowledgeable, trustworthy team: Those are both part of the promise we make to our customers.” True North has begun implementing Unanet A/E and plans to roll it out to its employees in Denver and Calgary by mid 2021. About Unanet Unanet is a leading provider of project-based ERP and CRM solutions purpose-built for Government Contractors, AEC, and Professional Services.

Alaska-based HDL Engineering Selects Unanet A/E to Help Company Manage Growth, Finances and Projects

May 11, 2021

DULLES, Va., May 11, 2021 – Unanet, the leading SaaS project-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) provider, today announced HDL Engineering Consultants, LLC, a leading Alaska-based engineering firm, has selected Unanet A/E as its project-based ERP solution to better predict project costs, profitability and management needs. HDL Engineering delivers responsible civil, environmental, geotechnical and transportation engineering, along with surveying and mapping, planning, material testing, and construction administration throughout the state. Over the past 20 years, the business has grown to one of the larger engineering firms in Alaska, yet its project management and accounting technology wasn’t keeping pace. Like many successful firms, HDL Engineering started small, with only two employees, so their project management needs were met with merely off-the-shelf software and spreadsheets. Yet, as the firm grew and expanded its service lines and attracted major clients, it needed more powerful whole-company solutions, particularly for accurate budgeting, forecasting and job costing. “Our project teams were operating in silos with spreadsheets. Each had their own budgets, forecasts, and finances, meaning our accounting operations were being heavily relied upon for project reporting and constantly playing catch up with the project managers,” said Jeff Fuglestad, Principal, HDL Engineering. “With Unanet, we’ll have real-time information, one single source of project data, and much better insight into project costs and profitability, which will inform better decisions across our projects and company.” Other critical factors in HDL Engineering’s decision to select Unanet were the ability to have complete control over their data, and Unanet’s modern, flexible solution and robust API. Additionally, Unanet’s user interface was more intuitive and efficient than other ERP options the firm explored. “Like many successful A/E companies, HDL Engineering focused so heavily on delivering on behalf of their clients that their internal processes were suffering,” said Lucas Hayden, Director, Product Marketing for Unanet. “With Unanet, HDL Engineering will have stronger insights, cleaner data, and better processes all around. We’re thrilled to be their new ERP partner.” Unanet is ranked the number one project-based ERP leader by industry analysts, experts and customers such as in G2’s Spring 2021 Reports, which named Unanet among the fastest implementation, highest user adoption, most implementable, easiest setup, best customer support, best relationship, easiest to use, and best usability. About Unanet Unanet is a leading provider of project-based ERP and CRM solutions purpose-built for Government Contractors, AEC, and Professional Services. More than 3,200 project-driven organizations depend on Unanet to turn their information into actionable insights, drive better decision-making, and accelerate business growth.
