Sometimes Being Forced to Change Is a Good Thing

Sometimes Being Forced to Change Is a Good Thing

Some project driven businesses make changes to their Professional Services Automation systems because they have outgrown their current software, or maybe they had a home-grown system that was no longer efficient, and some find themselves in the position where a change is prompted by external forces.

We were able to help one such customer, BCT Partners, who found themselves in just this predicament. BCT Partners is a national consulting firm that delivers a full range of program management, research & evaluation, technical assistance, and information technology services. BCT Partners had been using Deltek GCS for many years and had struggled with the old technology, lack of real-time data, and disconnected modules. Additionally, they knew that the software was coming to the end of its lifecycle.

BCT had been using Unanet’s other solutions for several years, so when it came time to make a change to their financial software, they considered Unanet Financials and Deltek’s Costpoint offering. Costpoint’s price point was prohibitively high and BCT still faced the roadblocks of a lack of real-time data, and disparate systems.

BCT Partners chose Unanet Financials and had a very smooth implementation. Post implementation, BCT Partners has benefited from having everything under one roof, in one system, and every part of their operation experienced improvements.
