Success Story | Copper River Information Technology

Sophisticated dual accounting solution increases efficiency for service delivery organization


Microsoft Dynamics SL, Unanet

Q: Why did you select Microsoft Dynamics SL for your accounting system?

A: As a premier VAR and recognized service partner for the major networking and network security OEM’s, Copper River has significant distribution and inventory tracking requirements. We needed a strong accounting system, with the ability to track tens of thousands of vendor parts, handle purchase orders and sales. Dynamics SL was one of the few products we found that combines that capability with project accounting!

Q: You also must meet DCAA requirements for contracts awarded to Copper River. How did you solve that problem?

A: We selected Unanet to manage our Time and Expense. Providing long term Information Technology services and short term Professional Services to both Government and Commercial clients, either attached in support of product sales or as standalone engagements, requires a robust resource planning and project control system.

The power duo of Dynamics SL and Unanet provide us the sophistication to track and sell serialized technology products as well as effectively manage our service delivery organization through detailed project portfolio management.

Q: Based on your experience, what advice would you give to others needing a DCAA compliant system today?

A: Find a partner that takes time to understand your business and your needs. Look for a powerful design process to make sure the software will be implemented right and finally make sure you have trust.
