User Reviews of Unanet Project Software

In switching our payroll to ADP, we found Unant was not able to integrate with ADP. This created an enormous amount of manual processes and double entry. On top of that we are already doing our invoices and contract management in Excel. There are just too many moving parts between systems leaving our company open to costly errors.

Unanet is an integrated ERP tool that does time tracking, project tracking, financial tracking and invoicing.

The Good…

I’m happy that the integration between time tracking and the financials.

The Bad…

The project management parts of the product are not mature enough or very easy to use. Most Project Managers are used to software like MS Project so this still a frustrating tool for my PMs

Our experience with Unanet has been excellent. We are using it to support a DCAA auditable accounting and financial practice and it is working quite well. It’s flexibility as to the setup and configuration at the user interface level is outstanding. It truly allows us to create our company policies and procedures and tailor Unanet to those and not vice versa.

It is a lightweight interface that is intuitive and well designed. It includes the ability to configure user roles for everyone from a basic timesheet or expense user to a Controller or CFO that oversees the entire financial operation of the business. We have especially enjoyed its ability to export financial data to CSV files, be able to manipulate those exports, and import them into payroll systems, accounting systems, and more.

Moreover, it is scalable and cost effective. It allows you to setup an operation for a startup company and scale it accordingly, including costs, as you grow. It is a 100% tailorable and lightweight ERP. It can implement as little or as much rigor as you desire into your finance and accounting operations. We are excited to further understand and eventually implement Unanet financial as it seems to be on a strong trajectory in its early stages.

It is a great product that we highly recommend!
