UniPhi Software, 20 May 2021
UniPhi has been actively used in the marketplace for almost 17 years (thanks to the wonderful Lysaght and BlueScope Steel for kicking us off and all subsequent customers) and it has evolved as one code base since then. It is a web application built on an asp.net framework. asp.net came out in 2002 so for it to still be a major platform for web development is amazing. However, funky new platforms have since been created that compete very well with asp.net. These platforms allow for more dynamic data entry similar to desktop applications of the past. And yet, after a lot of experimentation, we have found issues in all of these new platforms that asp.net just doesn't have. So we've had to be inventive over the years and UniPhi 17 continues this creativity with new spreadsheet style data entry screens for contract items.
The contract entry cards come with 10 blank rows for people to populate content. When they press save, another 10 rows are created and so on and so forth. This means that a user can quickly add a brainstorm of deliverables directly into UniPhi, rather than dump them in Excel for importing later.

This data entry method was first created underneath cost and revenue codes in our cost and revenue modules some years ago but like all good wines, has taken some time to mature to the contracts system. With the 'n' level structure, rates library capability, drag and drop re-ordering and Excel style indenting, we think we've beaten the odds and have provided our users with a compelling case to drop the other tools and just jump straight into UniPhi for your contract WBS needs.
Come back tomorrow for our next installment in the UniPhi 17 feature series.Tomorrow's edition ...... CHARTS!
