Like all Unanet feature upgrades, customer input and feedback are at the core, and the latest release of our award-winning ERP and CRM solutions for A/E and GovCon customers delivers new functionality designed to offer a more insightful, streamlined experience for workers in or out of the office.
New A/E Upgrades
On the AE side, Unanet unveiled key enhancements to Unanet ERP AE’s Project Central Web, which is functional on any device. Project Central Web is designed to give project managers a centralized tool for real-time insights into the status and progress of their projects. With Project Central Web, project managers become more agile in their project planning and resource scheduling, can analyze KPIs across all projects, and can review billing, invoicing and financial data easily and efficiently.
Architecture and engineering firms also gain enhanced mobile capabilities through the newest Unanet AE Mobile app, available November 6th. The new app will be available right from the iOS and Android app stores and allows employees to enter and track their time on the go anywhere, anytime. This helps A/E companies generate invoices more quickly with added functionality to send push notifications to employees for time entry reminders.
The third major upgrade for A/E firms is the milestone billing capabilities in Unanet AE. With milestone billing, finance managers can schedule lump sum billing over a date range further automating the billing process. Operations also benefit from integrated bill review, and continued automation for invoice generation.
Enhancements for GovCons
For GovCon customers, Unanet unveiled new financial tools that enable multiple legal entity accounting. Users are now able to share resources across legal entities with robust resource planning and scheduling, accurate and automatic revenue attribution and cost assignment, and automatic consolidation and elimination, all while maintaining the integrity of the Balance Sheet and P&L.
Additionally, GovCons using Unanet Analytics can access new automated ICE reports that simplifies annual incurred cost submissions. Users now have an easy way to produce the required data in formats designed schedule by schedule for input to the ICE model.
On the expense and time management side, GovCons now have line-item approval to reduce the need for re-approvals of timesheets and expense reports. Unanet also unveiled mobile expense offline mode so employees can create and edit expense reports, upload images, and record expense receipts anywhere, anytime, even when internet connectivity is not available.
Unanet’s A/E and GovCon customers using Unanet CRM for Web will enjoy a refreshed user interface providing business developers and marketers with a consistent experience to fuel their momentum in pursuing and winning more projects. Improvements to the CRM interface enable ease-of-use without disrupting the current workflows customers are already familiar with, ensuring it's easier to adopt with greater accessibility.
