Named in honor of Unanet’s pioneering founder Fran Craig, The Fran Craig grant helps enable organizations that support women’s success. The grant is an integral part of Unanet United, which is the company’s robust initiative that fosters interconnectedness and helps advance communities socially, academically and economically. Previous beneficiaries of Unanet’s donations have included STEM for Her and Women in Technology. “Many of Unanet’s beneficiaries have focused on STEM and technology, and those continue to be focal areas for Unanet United, but this year we felt it was critical to recognize the toll the COVID-19 has had on families and teens,” said Fran Craig, founder of Unanet. “The Women’s Center is committed to helping teens of all backgrounds cope with the mental health stressors they are experiencing. This helps our Northern Virginia community thrive both near-term and long-term.” “Fran Craig is an inspiration to the millions of girls, teens and women who are breaking down barriers in the business world,” said Rachna Krishnan, CEO and Executive Director of The Women’s Center. “The first step in any woman’s success is a healthy mind and body. This grant will provide the foundation for success and we are grateful to Unanet for it and for the strong relationship the company has built with The Women’s Center.” Unanet United encompasses a broad array of corporate social responsibility initiatives and is one of Northern Virginia’s most robust programs. In addition to corporate giving such as the Fran Craig Grant, Unanet United is the epicenter of the company’s diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) initiatives.

Akshay Mahajan in ENR: “Technology Needs to Bridge Generational and Operational Divides”
Aug 19, 2021
Architects, engineers and contractors can use their technology solutions, cloud or desktop, to better communicate The construction industry finds itself straddling two very different worlds. On one hand, the relationships-first business mindset is still an integral part of winning repeat business, yet on the other, decades-worth of institutional knowledge begins to fade with new leaders rising in firms faced with manual processes tied to business pursuit details. While firms still rely heavily on a generation of workers who remember what the business was like before the Internet, the focus today is on future-proofing the business, an undertaking that will rest mostly in the hands of a younger, digitally forward breed of employee. For firms that are proactively planning based on the realities of an aging workforce, the challenge goes beyond merely reconciling these two distinct worlds. Their growth depends on them finding ways to not only blend the traditional — and still highly relevant — relationships-first way of doing business with the digital-first sensibilities and savvy of younger members of the workforce, but to get the best of both worlds.

Craig Halliday in Enterprise Times: “A conversation with Unanet”
Aug 19, 2021
Enterprise Times sat down with Unanet CEO Craig Halliday to talk about the facts, figures, and future of Unanet, and of course, no interview would be complete without a good business book recommendation. Can you tell me a bit about Unanet? “We’re running pretty well. We have over 3,100 customers. We’ve added over 500 customers in the last year. In the last couple of years, we’ve bought two companies and integrated them fully. We’re 330 employees, we have three offices in the US, and we’re growing at roughly 30% per annum. We’re feeling pretty good about where we’re at.” What have you achieved this year? “This last year, 500 plus new customers is the main achievement. Plus, we’ve purchased, integrated, and offered a CRM solution for all our AEC customers. We’ve also just launched GovCon CRM at our champions conference last week.” Unanet recently added CRM to its product portfolio, is there another application that Unanet is looking to add after CRM? “There are various things that we’re looking at. We have a fairly broad set of companies that we look at and a fairly defined process that we go through in looking at them. We will look to continue to add things that our customers want.” Unanet has focused mainly on the US market with both GovCon and AEC. What are the ambitions outside of North America? Halliday revealed that it is looking to push AEC, though he also said that some GovCon related things outside of the US are interesting.
