Over the course of 2015, one of our accounting services consultants, Katie Donnell, made four week long trips to Unanet Headquarters in Dulles, VA for training classes to implement and operate Unanet software.
Each of the week-long training courses focused on a functional area within Unanet: Project Tracking (basic time and expense entry), Billing, Portfolio (advanced project planning), and Financials. The certification process did not end there. After each of the training weeks at Unanet Headquarters, Katie was required to replicate a business scenario within Unanet to put her training to practice. After each completed scenario, there was an exam and interview process to finalize the certification.

Now that Katie has passed all of the implementation certification courses, she is eligible to assist our clients throughout the lifecycle of their software implementation. Katie works closely with the Unanet team to ensure that the software implementation is a success. Having Katie as part of the implementation team enables our clients to have oversight to government contract compliance throughout the lifecycle of the implementation, and access to a broader network of support as needed from the rest of our consulting team at Redstone GCI.

In addition to having Katie as a certified implementation specialist, Redstone GCI was awarded a Partner of the Year award at Unanet’s annual Champions Conference in May 2015. (Pictured on the right: Asa Gilliland pictured with Donna Kilbourn at the annual Unanet Champions Conference.)
