Explore the Differences

What is UniPhi?

UniPhi started life in 1999 out of a consulting business to support many aspects of construction project work and remains owned by its original founder. Today, UniPhi presents as an older software and promotes itself as a business tool with solutions for a enterprise, major projects, and onsite. With such a variety of solutions, UniPhi has a very long and heavy set of features. Features include time sheeting and invoicing, through to instructions, documents and more. With such complexity and bloat, moving onto it has been described as a 'challenge' but perhaps one worth undertaking if it is right for your business.

Why Mastt?

In contrast, Mastt is a newer tool having been co-founded by Jamie Cerexhe & Doug Vincent in 2019. Mastt is supported by investments from Australia's leading venture firms, including the founders of Aconex - Rob Philpot and Leight Jasper. With Doug being a former Project & Program Management consultant, Mastt exists solely to provide a simple and easy to use tool for Project Owners of capital projects or client side project managers who struggle with spreadsheets and reporting across projects and programs.  The modern design of Mastt's software experience follows its mantra of enabling 'fast, easy reports & dashboards to power capital projects' and serves the key requirements from the client or owner’s perspective.

So, If you want a newer, simpler and easy-to-use solution for projects and programs then Mastt is right for you.
