Scalability is in Our DNA
Many project driven businesses eventually find themselves at a crossroads with the management of their people, projects and financials. Some have created a stand-alone, home-built system that involves multiple platforms, spreadsheets, and outdated processes. Making the big leap to a purpose built professional services automation platform may seem scary or unnecessary. Other businesses find themselves at the crossroads when their existing system just isn’t scalable anymore.
Regardless of how you got there – the challenge is the same. What to do next?
We recently sat down with Unanet customer, Isobar, a global leader in the digital agency space, to discuss their move to Unanet Financials,
Isobar and Unanet have been working together for over 13 years, Isobar has been using Unanet’s Time & Expense software for 13 years and has been doing their invoicing for 2-3 years with Unanet, and recently implemented Financials.
Unanet had supported Isobar with not one, but two past software providers, first QuickBooks and then Microsoft Dynamics, and the issue of scalability came up often.
With time and productivity suffering, Isobar knew that it was time to make a change, and they began looking for alternatives.
Isobar elected to continue growing their business by expanding their relationship with Unanet, after-all, Unanet had been scaling with them for years.
Unanet’s single integrated platform allowed them a single source of truth for managing their people, projects and financials, and gave them the real-time visibility that they needed.
Bruce Posner, Isobar’s Chief Financial Officer commented that. “The benefits that we received from Unanet were immediate. We took a process that took 3-4 hours a month and changed it to 15 minutes a month. After 2-3 months of using Unanet, we forgot how painful it used to be when we were not on one integrated system.”
Unanet’s ability to grow with our customers, regardless of their size or complexity, means that companies like Isobar can move onto more strategic initiatives, instead of having to replace a system that just isn’t designed to meet their needs now AND in the future.
