MulvannyG2 Architecture provides comprehensive architectural, planning, and interior design services for office, retail, and mixed-use facilities throughout the U.S. and the world. Given MulvannyG2’s growth over the years, the company found that both the number and complexity of their project delivery forms had expanded to over 300, with each office and group creating its own unique, paper-based project forms to address their business needs. To address this challenge, MulvannyG2 conducted a Business Value Planning Service (BVPS) engagement to document its project delivery process using Microsoft® Office Visio® process diagrams, isolate potential improvement opportunities, and identify ways to both reduce the number of forms used and transition those remaining from paper to electronic. As a result of the engagement, MulvannyG2 was able to reduce the number of forms under management from over 300 to approximately 100, all by utilizing Microsoft technology they already owned.Download
