2009 Winner Profile

UniGroup

Project Description:
The parent company of United Van Lines, Mayflower Transit and other moving companies replaced a process that relied on a preprinted, multipart form process when moving household goods across state lines with an electronic and plain paper form system. The company reduced costs, improved operating efficiency and simplified compliance with Federal regulations. Drivers can now access order documents online rather than picking up hard copies at agent locations. The company says the electronic system saves van lines $400,000 annually in form expenses and has cut fines by the government for noncompliance with regulations by $1.5 million annually.
