As a Business Developer, Seller-Doer, or Marketer in the AEC industry, your CRM is at the center of where projects are pursued and won, with research from Software Advice showing that over 70% of business professionals agree, there’s no doubt a CRM improves access to customer data. With your firm’s institutional knowledge and best practices, specific project records, and opportunities constantly growing, Unanet CRM by Cosential is an integral part of your day-to-day. So, when it comes to your experience as a user, it should be easy. You’re building relationships, responding to RFPs, and nurturing pursuits for the next big projects that are, sometimes, years in the making. We believe your platform should work with you in a meaningful way and remove the guesswork.

An intuitive platform meets you in the moments you need it most and flows at the pace your business needs for success. We’re invested in building a rich experience for you, as our customer, and ensuring adoption of Unanet CRM by Cosential is easy with a streamlined approach across Mobile, Outlook, and now our Web application.

I love the new navigation in the web app because I’m constantly viewing opportunities and our pipeline, and now I can dive directly into Leads and Opportunities in a single click and even collapse the side panel altogether. This quickly gets me to where I need to be and gives me so much more real estate, making it easier to view my data across the page and find key information without needing to scroll.

A modernized navigation to enhance productivity in Unanet CRM by Cosential for Web is making its debut for you to have a simplified view, enjoy new search capabilities, and more at your fingertips.

When setting out on our re-imagined interface, we started with one singular factor driving us forward: our customers. For the stretches when you’re not on-the-go, and dedicating time at your desk to grow or update key Contacts, jump into specific records while the pursuit is top of mind, or access reports to understand the big picture, your CRM should enable you to dig into your business and never stall your firm’s momentum.

Unanet CRM by Cosential’s new navigation accomplishes that by bringing to the surface the core elements of what business developers, seller-doers, and marketers are executing on most often, making it easier to find what they’re looking for and complete daily tasks. “We’re focused on solving our customers’ specific challenges with a solution that’s tailormade for their needs. My goal is to ensure when customers come to our product, they feel like we understand them while they’re using it and know that we’ve thought about even the little details of their daily habits,” shares Julia Seltzer, Senior UX Designer at Unanet.
