Challenge #1

What’s the best way to integrate schedules for construction, manufacturers, transportation, warehousing, installation, and possible liquidation?

Our team’s collective experience in scope mapping and project scheduling will give you the peace of mind you need. Our collaborative approach ensures that all stakeholders are involved, resulting in a plan that everyone can agree on. And because technology is so integral to our process, you’ll have dashboards and tools that give you clear visibility and simple status reporting throughout the entire project.

 
 

Challenge #2

It’s extremely time-consuming to coordinate with vendors on sequencing through the building load and installation in conjunction with construction schedules.

One of the most valuable roles we play is that of an extension of your team. The way we approach this challenge is really quite simple: we coordinate the product logistics from PO to placement, receiving product at a local warehouse or executing JIT delivery. The best part? Our dashboards give you all of the information you need in a simple format, so that you can get quick updates on project status at any time.

Challenge #3

How can our MAC team get national visibility to work orders and projects? Can we see the forecast as well?

Our custom dashboards help your team see upcoming moves and schedules, along with associated GWS staff. These centralized resources are updated in real-time, and also serve as landing spots for important documents and feedback forms. View the rolling project forecast at any time; you’ll be able to see status, task type, start and end dates, project duration, and more. With our project portals, all of your project data is at your fingertips, giving you everything you need to manage your work order program, no matter how many locations you have.

 
 

Challenge #4

How do we mitigate the risk of lag time between manufacturing and installation during the overseas logistics process?

Our team has decades of experience and expertise in risk identification and mitigation. For this particular challenge, we work hard on the front-end of the process to establish proper packaging protocols, which are key in ensuring that finished goods arrive in room-ready condition. These preventative measures help prevent costly reorders, and keep the project schedule intact.
