Headquartered in Quantico, Virginia, The Marine Corps Association & Foundation is the preeminent professional organization for all Marines, whether on active duty, reserve, retired, or veteran. The mission of the association is to be the leading association and foundation for all Marines and friends of the Corps and to expand awareness of the rich traditions, history, and spirit of the United States Marine Corps.
Like many associations, the Marine Corps Association and Foundation was faced with a tough economy. This forced the Foundation to identify new and transformative ways to reduce expenses and improve productivity.
Throughout our 360 Assessment, we worked with the CFO and Director of IT to understand more about the Foundation’s initiatives. We discovered three opportunities where TML could make an impact:
- Uncover unmanaged costs associated with supporting the association’s technology infrastructure
- Analyze current asset deployment strategy and usage patterns associated with technology
- Identify inefficient business processes that could be improved or automated
By deploying the right copiers and printers, Managed Print Services, and a new print policy, the organization was able to create a sustainable strategy that provided a return on investment of more than 20%. Our team leveraged a content management solution, Xerox DocuShare, to automate the workflow approval process within the Accounts Payable department. With over 350 vendors paid monthly, this process improvement delivered significant time and cost savings, ensuring invoices were paid timely and late charges were avoided.
