Government Industry Resource Group now offers affordable, real-time, project-based software to small- and medium-sized businesses pursuing government contracts.
Press Release (BlakelyCompany.com)
Monitoring project costs in real time just became easier for government and commercial contractors in Colorado.
After 18 months of training, Colorado Springs-based govIRG has become the only company in Colorado and the western states certified to offer Unanet software as a BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) program provider. Unanet is a real-time, project-based, affordable software for government or commercial contractors.
As a Unanet business process outsourcing (BPO) program provider, govIRG can now provide this software to small businesses in a cost-effective manner with a high return on investment, especially compared to the software most project-based companies are currently using.
The software helps companies remain Defense Contract Audit Agency-compliant, and gives project managers instant access to an integrated financial accounting system, with access to real-time labor costs, cash flow, supply chain and dozens of other metrics.
Project managers can better control their resources and costs by having real-time data for budgeting and forecasting, time and expense reporting, billing and revenue recognition, project management analytics and dashboards, and integrated financials with accounts receivable, accounts payable, general ledger and cost pool calculations.
Already several govIRG customers have switched to using Unanet to maintain their DCAA compliance and gain the benefits of an integrated system. Among those companies are C-TRAC (Center for Technology, Research and Commercialization), VEDO LLC, and Allied Mountain LLC, companies as small as five people and as large as 200.
“Finally an affordable real-time ERP (enterprise resource planning) system that not only meets our government contracting compliance issues, but allows us to manage our projects and resources in real time,” said Erin Miller, managing director of CTRAC. “Automating our systems in Unanet, instead of using manual QuickBooks processes, gives us better real-time visibility into our numbers and has almost paid for the cost of the software already.”
“We recently transitioned from a manual spreadsheet on the backend of QuickBooks to Unanet, said Bill Clark, president of Allied Mountain. “This transition simplified the management of our internal program metrics and timekeeping so we could monitor, manage, and report in real time, while ensuring we met our government contracting compliance issues, all at a very affordable cost.”
“govIRG is very excited about the growth we have experienced since becoming a Unanet BPO and adding Unanet to our ERP system offerings that we implement and support,” said Kevin Hoskins, founding senior partner of govIRG. “Our new customers, along with our existing customers, who have converted over for one reason or another, are enjoying the ROI on business processes and increased capabilities that the system provides.”
