Unanet’s new release comes with four main improvements for GovCons in the areas of inventory integration, Unanet mobile, project central dashboard and contract management.
For example, the project central dashboard for GovCons serves as an interactive feature with the analytics studio that offers in-the-moment, integrated project and economic analytics. Moreover, bolstered contract management functions for GovCons let users register, monitor and reconcile the value and funding of a contract.
And, in the case of A/E clients, Unanet’s new functionalities offer a smoother deployment experience for accounting workforces, project managers and every desktop user.
Project central for web for A/E clients, in one case, offers in-depth project views with important data points throughout every project in one live source.
