Having the most current documents readily available to all project participants is critical to driving efficiency and reducing errors and omissions on projects. A robust audit trail of document changes reduces tension across project participants, decreases the risk of change orders and claims, and helps drive on-schedule and on-budget performance.
The Document Manager is part of Unifier’s secure, web-based architecture, allowing superior local or worldwide collaboration between project team members or across the organization. The system ensures that all members of your team are always working on the most current versions, and dramatically increases efficiencies by providing ready access to all documents from anywhere at any time.

Primavera Unifier for Cash Flow Management
Cash flow management is important for maintaining the financial integrity of a project. Project managers and executives rely on accurate, comprehensive reporting and analysis of transactions and the ability to reliably forecast trends and risks. Spreadsheets are often the tool of choice for cash flow management, but are fraught with errors and data integrity issues, as well as many other limitations.
Unifier’s advanced Cash Flow engine allows you to baseline budgets, track actual costs, and calculate reliable forecasts. Cash flow data is displayed both graphically as cash flow curves and in worksheet form for complete analysis.
