Cosential has reaffirmed their continued push of bringing innovation to the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction industry with the launch of the New Business Development Experience. The new suite of features eclipses basic CRM capabilities, and places the power of pursuit data directly into the hands of users. The new innovations are designed to enable Business Developers and Doer-Sellers with quick and easy access to the data they need on-the-go to strategically leverage the power of their relationships and drive predictable revenue for their firm within a project-based platform.
Cosential allows Business Developers and Doer-Sellers to work where their daily habits already thrive in business pursuits by delivering them the right information, real-time, in the context of how they operate today: on-the-go with their smartphones, and at-their-desk directly from their email inbox.
Business Developers and Doer-Sellers are the pace-setters within AEC firms, the introduction of the New Business Development Experience includes an entirely re-imagined mobile application, for iOS and Android, as well as the strongest integration with Outlook – bringing the right information to users in the context of how they pursue and win business, and cracking the code to wide-spread technology adoption across firms by eliminating the need for multiple web page logins to further operational efficiencies with familiar tools.
- Cosential’s new mobile app completely up-levels the on-the-go experience for users. Cosential for Mobile enables business developers to access and manage their contacts from anywhere, and feed their colleagues important relationship and pursuit information on-the-go, never missing a critical moment.
- Cosential for Outlook seamlessly integrates contact and opportunity management with email, allowing users to run on the power of their firm’s data while connecting their contacts, leads, and maintaining their pipeline straight from their inbox.
“A/E/C firms are experiencing one of the most complex and unpredictable environments in their history, now more than ever their success depends on their business development teams’ ability to help draw predictable revenue streams and stabilize accounts. Relationships are at the core of Business Development teams, and that’s true here at Cosential, as well. Our customers told us precisely what they needed during these turbulent times and we’re committed to innovating and delivering those solutions. No other CRM provides this level of pre-sales relationship and pipeline management functionality,” said Akshay Mahajan, General Manager of CRM at Unanet.
Cosential is delivering on its commitment to continued innovation after its acquisition by Unanet, the leading ERP provider for the A/E/C market. Together, Unanet and Cosential are uniquely positioned to continue to deliver the most innovative platform and value for A/E/C businesses looking to streamline their business operations in 2021.

Sharing, in his own words, that “Now we are able to execute project pursuits without leaving the tools our BD teams are most familiar with.”
