There are two main competitors for Hydra PSA and these include Epicor Professional Services software and Unanet Professional Services Automation.

Epicor Professional Services software is available for a variety of services automation sectors and is suited for companies that are running one or many services lines of business. The product’s features cover customer management, project finance & budgeting, resource allocation, as well as service delivery review. Additionally the product supports portfolio management to cover the full project lifecycle starting from opportunity development to project handover.

In comparison Hydra PSA covers a much more comprehensive suite which includes portfolio management, project & business process management as well as knowledge management. In fact the knowledge management module includes its Blueprint feature which holds a portfolio of services implementation best practices which can be utilized on various projects. In addition services teams can continue updating these practices to reflect lessons learned which can improve the overall service delivery process.

Then there is Unanet Professional Services Automation which provides companies with an open integration model to interface with a variety of third party software.

While Hydra PSA does not currently support these features, it is offered as a cloud based solution and is suited for both project management offices and IT departments. In comparison Unanet Professional Services Automation is offered as both an on premise as well as cloud based solution, but it is only focused on project management unlike Hydra PSA.
