Timesheet Software

As a government contractor, it’s vital to use a timekeeping system that identifies employees’ labor to cost objectives in order to meet mandatory compliance requirements. 

  • Unanet’s timesheet software enables collection of time to track project effort and support payroll, invoicing, and project accounting.  
  • Unanet supports all your timekeeping compliance needs from monitoring daily entry requirements to association of the correct labor categories. 
  • For contractors with Service Contract Act (SCA) requirements, Unanet will automatically apply the correct pay rate from the Wage Determination and calculate any Cash-In-Lieu amounts due to your employees for export to your payroll system.

Recognized as the best timesheet for GovCons, Unanet is proven to ease your path to compliance by supporting all these regulatory requirements and more. And now, the Unanet Mobile App provides simple and easy time entry, accessibility, and compliance, all from the palm of your hand.

Expense software

Like timekeeping, accurate expense reporting is critical for GovCon contractors to maintain compliance and stay on budget. To avoid errors, employees must have a way to easily input and support expenses in real-time, from any device.

  • Unanet software allows users to access simple, expense reports anytime, anywhere, from a browser or a mobile device
  • To ensure compliance, wizards automate policy enforcement (i.e., dollar limits and IRS rules) and reimbursement (i.e., mileage or Per Diems by location).
  • Scheduled emails remind employees to submit or approve expenses, reducing administrative burden.
  • Email notifications keep employees and supervisors advised of the status of expense reports in real time.
  • When a change is made to a line-item that is subject to approval by a project manager, only the changed line or lines need to be re-approved, not the entire expense report.

Unanet is proven to drastically streamline the expense report approval and Q/A process, ultimately reducing internal accounting and project management resource consumption. Now, thanks to the Unanet Mobile App, users can enter expenses from the palm of their hand.
