National Design and Engineering Firm ISG Implements Unanet ERP in Just 120 Days Generating Significant Cash Flow and Efficiency Gains

by Lucas HaydenUnanet A/E News, Unanet News

Sep 13, 2021

Firm replaced growth-limiting legacy system for better service, user interface and analysis Dulles, VA, September 13, 2021 – ISG, a nationally recognized multi-disciplinary design and engineering firm, selected Unanet ERP AE to replace its outdated legacy system. Within a few short months, ISG implemented Unanet’s industry-leading ERP across its 11 offices and began reaping the timesaving benefits from new processes, improved cash flow, and real-time insights into its growing firm. ISG’s selection further solidifies Unanet’s increasing appeal and success at replacing status quo legacy systems that have failed to keep up with changing customer needs. In the years leading up to ISG’s move to Unanet AE, the human resources, accounting and project teams at ISG had lived with an inefficient, opaque and ill-fitting legacy ERP system. As the firm grew, the teams became increasingly frustrated with the system as well as the lack of support received from the big-name company behind it. “As our firm grew, we knew we needed to provide more visibility for team leads on overall project performance. We were also looking for ways to complete relatively basic, but time-consuming administrative tasks, such as timesheet reviews and employee onboarding, more efficiently. We also wanted access to live data from our ERP system to manage our business in real-time,” explained Alec Pfeffer, Director of Finance and Accounting at ISG. After a thorough search, ISG selected Unanet AE, which was purpose-built for architecture and engineering firms. Unanet also appealed to ISG for its malleability and scalability, an important consideration for a firm that has been growing through acquisitions and organic expansion of its customer base. Unanet’s ability to meet ISG’s aggressive 120-day implementation schedule was also critical to the move. “We had a hard deadline and the Unanet team delivered on their promise,” added Pfeffer. In the months following the move to Unanet AE, ISG has noted several improvements to its business including: Streamlining 700+ monthly invoices, leading to more consistent and predictable revenue streams and significant increase to cash flow. Using Unanet Connect for Payroll, ISG gained valuable time savings on payroll processing and employee management, allowing the fast-paced company to add to its frontline staff and grow revenue without adding extra overhead costs and personnel within the HR department. Most importantly, ISG gained insights for making better decisions faster due to real-time information being visible across the entire firm. “Because of Unanet AE’s innovative platform, we’re running faster while remaining lean,” said Pfeffer. “We’re increasing revenues and providing a better client experience without adding back-office headcount.” “ISG is a leader in its field and has established itself as one of the nation’s best firms in part due to the strong relationships and care it provides its customers,” said Matt Pantana, SVP of Product for Unanet AE. “Unanet AE’s mission runs in parallel with ISG because we focus first on customer needs and support, then innovate solutions that work. We look forward to a long partnership with ISG.” Unanet AE is a purpose-built ERP for architecture and engineering firms and offers a powerful combination of project management, business intelligence, time and expense tracking, financial, integrations, and prospect management tools in one single source. Unanet has consistently been the ERP solution firms are turning to after experiencing disappointing results with legacy systems that fail to innovate to accompany customers’ needs.

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

by Lucas HaydenUnanet A/E News, Unanet News

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. 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.

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

by Lucas HaydenPress Releases, Unanet A/E News, Unanet News

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.

by Carrie MahonPress Releases, Product Releases, Unanet A/E News, Unanet News

Apr 06, 2021

Innovations developed directly from customer feedback, demonstrating commitment to two-way dialogs. Dulles, VA, April 6, 2021 – Unanet, the leading SaaS project-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) provider, today unveiled new features for its industry-leading ERP technology platform purpose-built for government contractors (GovCons), and architecture and engineering (A/E) companies. The enhancements are designed to specifically target the user experience and offer intelligent new functionality to both platforms. Customers get even better tools for real-time data insights, flexibility and the ability to make informed business decisions. Additionally, GovCons can rest assured that their businesses are aligned with the latest compliance requirements. This is the second major release from Unanet on both its GovCon and A/E platforms this year, further underscoring the company’s commitment to innovating and enhancing its software to ensure customers have the latest technology to meet their ever-changing needs. “Unanet is the alternative to stagnant ERP that requires customers to adapt their processes to meet their modules instead of the other way around,” said Assad Jarrahian, chief product officer, Unanet. “We understand our customers needed more intuitive and user-friendly dashboards and reports, especially as they move from outdated systems to more dynamic solutions.” Just last week, Unanet was recognized as a “High Performer” in dozens of categories for its A/E and GovCon solutions in G2’s Spring 2021 Reports, including fastest implementation, highest user adoption, most implementable, easiest setup, best customer support, best relationship, easiest to use, and best usability. The selections were made by end-users, demonstrating the value Unanet’s customers receive and their favorability of the solutions. For GovCons, Unanet’s new release delivers three primary enhancements: Mobile Time & Expense capabilities, Fixed Asset tracking, and Service Contract support. A new Mobile application allows busy GovCon professionals to input time and expense on their own devices anywhere, anytime, making expense input easy. Supervisors will also be able to approve their employees’ timecards and expense reports from their own mobile devices. Unanet’s mobile applications are high-rated and user-friendly, giving customers best-in-class capabilities. Future improvements include data capture directly from scanned receipts, enabling users to create an expense item in under 30 seconds. A new native Fixed Asset tracking and depreciation solution that calculates and records depreciation expenses to the general ledger, tracks asset in-service dates and locations, and records disposals to complete the asset lifecycle. Unanet’s reports and its unique dashboard make the tool more intuitive and user-friendly than any other on the market. The Service Contract Act (SCA) requires GovCons have the ability to comply with the wage determination in their contracts. Offering advanced SCA support, Unanet will now automatically calculate the correct costs for export to their payroll system, including pay in lieu of benefits. Additionally, complete wage determinations history for each contract is available to support Department of Labor audits. For A/E customers, Unanet’s new features were designed specifically in response to customer feedback. The newest advancements, including fee functionalities that allow customers to share the cost of merchant fees with their payers, Project Central enhancements for streamlined insights, and a modern, redesigned desktop experience were implemented based on open communications from Unanet A/E customers. Unanet invites a two-way dialog with its customers to ensure they have the functionality they need to run their businesses. One unique way Unanet is committing to customer engagement is by the launch of an upgraded customer suggestions portal, enabling faster feedback loops to development teams to meet the needs of the customer community more quickly. Customers will benefit from real-time status updates on their suggestions and new unlimited customer voting. All these upgrades position Unanet A/E as the most customer-focused ERP provider in the industry. “As we continue to focus on new solutions and enhancements, we listen to customer feedback and innovate on new features directly aligned with their requests,” continued Jarrahian. “With these additional capabilities, customers get the benefit of a trusted partner who listens, understands and delivers on their ever-growing needs.” To learn more about the Unanet new release for GovCon customers, please visit this link.

Jan 05, 2021

Customers gain significant real-time visibility, analytics, project management, payment and mobile capabilities Dulles, VA, Jan. 5, 2021 – Unanet, the leading SaaS project-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) provider, today released several game-changing features and functions to augment its ERP platform purpose-built for government contractors (GovCons), and architecture and engineering (A/E) companies. The new capabilities further solidify Unanet’s position at the forefront of ERP functionality and ease-of-use. The fresh upgrades to both the GovCon and A/E versions of Unanet software provide customers with an unprecedented level of visibility, along with best-in-class analytics, and real-time project management tools, coupled with what already is widely recognized as the strongest customer service and support in the business. These upgrades are engineered directly from customer feedback, quickly delivering the features and functionality that customers need. The latest in a series of important enhancements, the upgrades announced today underscore Unanet’s ongoing commitment to arm customers with tools to run their businesses more efficiently. The newly announced capabilities follow the recent launch of Unanet Connect, the ERP industry’s first and only open integration marketplace and platform that goes beyond APIs, offering more than 100 prebuilt connectors to seamlessly integrate with systems such as Paylocity, ADP, BambooHR, HubSpot and Oracle. Also recently, Unanet launched the industry’s most in-depth integrated analytics features, with advanced dashboards and even more real-time reporting capabilities. “Unanet is continually investing in its ERP to ensure it has the latest cutting-edge technology because that’s what our customers need to stay nimble and competitive in this complex economy,” said Assad Jarrahian, chief product officer, Unanet. “Unanet ERP is rapidly displacing the siloed, outdated tools many companies struggle with. These new releases further solidify our position as the ERP provider of choice.” For GovCons, Unanet’s new release offers four primary enhancements: Contract Management, Project Central Dashboard, Unanet Mobile, and Inventory Management. The enhanced Contract Management capabilities enable users to record, track and reconcile a contract’s value and funding by modification, aggregate contracts by customer and project type, and more. Users can associate a contract with as many projects as needed to account for CLINs, SLINs and Task or delivery orders. Changes are automatically reflected in an automatic audit trail, and reports reflect the latest contract details, information and modifications. The new Project Central Dashboard is an interactive dashboard in Analytics Studio that provides real-time, integrated project and financial insights. More than 45 different project-based metrics related to revenue, revenue backlog, revenue variance, profitability and many more are presented in graphs and tabular formats, providing detailed, personalized project views for project managers. Unanet Mobile is a new native application that allows users to input time and comments, set push notifications, request leave, and do it all directly from the mobile device of their choice. The simplicity, along with secure authentication, encourages consistent time input by employees on the go. Powered by Stripe, Unanet Pay is newly available for GovCons and will provide a significant increase in invoicing and payment flexibility resulting in increased efficiencies and improved cash flow.  Inventory Management has features that allow project managers and accountants to view and report on inventory associated with their projects.  While inventory is managed through best-in-class inventory solutions, the integration creates inventory transactions associated to the project and journal entry transactions documenting the inventory flow from acquisition to use. The new features give GovCons even more control over their data, so they have a single, consistent and reliable source of truth for all business information, with the ability to readily access invaluable real-time insight to accelerate projects, meet deadlines, and run their projects and their business profitably. For A/E customers, Unanet’s new features provide a more seamless deployment experience for project managers, accounting teams in both AP and AR, and all desktop users. Highlighting the latest release is a new web experience for Project Managers, enhancements to Unanet Pay, and updates to project planning and purchasing functionalities. Project Central for Web provides detailed project views anytime, anywhere with key metrics across all projects in one, single real-time source. Firms can customize the metrics to create personalized project views, search and export information, and monitor project performance dashboards with KPIs at the project and phase level. Unanet Pay, previously known as invoice delivery and payment facilitation, is an upgraded function powered by Stripe that streamlines invoicing, tracks customer engagement, and increases cash flow. Customers can copy/paste payment links for easier collections, flexibly email invoices, engage their customers with a seamless invoicing experience and collect payments via ACH and credit card more efficiently than ever before. New Enhanced Project Planning functions provide key updates to Unanet A/E’s full suite of enterprise tools for scheduling, budgeting and managing projects featuring enhancements for multiple rate analyses, and ETC and Percent Complete History automation for easier earned value management. Purchasing is also simplified with flexible configuration and approvals, support for process automations, and easy-to-use management. “Each function released today is specifically designed to resolve a pain-point that customers have expressed, while also integrating and simplifying processes,” continued Jarrahian. “We pay specific attention to ensuring our releases seamlessly integrate and improve the user experience, so we continue to offer greater value to our customers. It’s through this careful and purposed approach we can help them gain a business advantage.” Recently, Unanet was recognized as a “High Performer” in dozens of categories for its A/E and GovCon solutions in G2’s Winter 2021 Reports, including fastest implementation, highest user adoption, most implementable, easiest setup, best customer support, best relationship, easiest to use, and best usability.

Clearview and Unanet Combine to Accelerate Development of InFocus

by Lucas HaydenA/E, GovCon, Professional Services, Unanet A/E News, Unanet News

Oct 17, 2019

Unanet, a leading SaaS project-based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) provider, has acquired Clearview Software to continue and accelerate the development of InFocus as the leading project-ERP software for Architects & Engineers. Why Unanet? This is a strategic decision that included many factors. We have had no shortage of interested investors over the years, and while past opportunities presented to us meant potentially losing our culture and control of the direction of our product, with Unanet we are able to maintain our focus with additional resources. Additionally, what separated Unanet from the rest was our similarity in our culture and goals. Both we and Unanet have been bootstrapped, founder-owned and operated companies, and we are walking through this door together as we look to maximize our potential. Will InFocus continue to be supported and developed? Absolutely. We’re very excited about the opportunity to put more energy and effort into further developing InFocus. It was one of the major factors in choosing Unanet. We also just released a major InFocus update to all of our customers who received new features at no additional cost. We have more releases already scheduled for next year and are continuing our commitment to product development and support. Will Clearview be shifting its focus away from A/E? Absolutely not. We were looking for a partner that would help us serve more of the A/E market. By combining our resources with Unanet, we will be able to compete with legacy vendors in our market more effectively. There’s a lot of work to do here, and we’re very excited about that. What if I just bought InFocus? You made the right decision and your investment just appreciated in value. We strongly believe that our partnership with Unanet will drive InFocus forward in ways that would have been more difficult otherwise. Who do I contact for support now that Clearview is part of Unanet? Is my account manager changing? Nothing has changed on that front, and all Clearview staff members remain in place. Our current and future customers will continue to reach us at all of our previous contact methods and you will have all the same contact personnel as before. We are dedicated to continuing our excellence in customer service and have increased our support and sales staff in the recent weeks to support our planned growth. What does the future look like for Clearview? The future is bright! Clearview will now have access to more resources to develop and support our software than ever before. We plan to continue adding staff, features and support tools to help our customers run their firms on the best ERP software in the A/E industry.
