One of the Nation’s Largest Construction Management Firms Builds New Strategic Human Resource Management System

With 70 Locations, 1,700 Employees and More than $1.3 Billion in Revenue, Barton Malow Implements NuView’s HRMS to Help Manage Its Most Important Corporate Asset; Its People

Wilmington, MA – July 24, 2007– As one of the top ten builders in the country, Barton Malow – a construction management and general contracting firm that provides all facets of project planning, value engineering and manpower planning – is in the process of constructing a new enterprise-wide human resource management system (HRMS). Having outgrown its former ‘static’ HR system, Barton Malow looked to its Information Technology (IT) team to help drive the firm towards an HRMS capable of evolving their HR function into a strategic corporate asset. Faced with a mandate to construct a solid HRMS foundation that would better manage their numerous employees, including trades personnel, connect the HR Department across job sites and offices, and transform the way they leverage their human resource efforts, Barton Malow ultimately selected NuViewHR®.

“At the end of the day, we are a professional services-based firm that relies heavily upon the competencies, training and overall management of our most important asset, our employees,” said Phil Go, Chief Information Officer (CIO) for Barton Malow. “It’s not just about technology, but rather, the value that the company gets from the technology, and our organization agreed that NuViewHR was the right application to provide our company with a competitive, and strategic, business advantage.”

After considering numerous HRMS options, the team at Barton Malow decided to bypass the big application vendors (ERP’s) in favor of a best-of-breed solution in order to reduce the implementation time, lower the cost of the overall investment and ultimately realize a faster return on investment. Additionally, their CIO needed to ensure that the company’s new HRMS was capable of breaking down functional information silos, support the organization’s end-to-end processes via sophisticated workflows, and have an integrated and common set of competency data models.

In order for Barton Malow to properly utilize an HRMS in an environment where various contractors and trades people have easy and immediate access to the system, security was paramount in its decision to move ahead with NuViewHR. According to Mr. Go, “We were already in the process of acquiring a new internet facing security appliance when we evaluated a new system, and NuView’s sophisticated solution made it that much easier to put the new HRMS behind a secure socket layer via our virtual private network. In fact, the system has already made an impression on our end user community in terms of our HR capabilities, while also supporting the security needs of our organization.”

Another key consideration for selecting NuViewHR was the flexibility of the technology and its unique modular approach. For example, the company has already rolled out the Employee Self-Service component in an effort to realize a fast return on investment, and has begun to implement NuView’s Performance Management and Manager Self-Service components. In the future, the company plans to implement NuView’s Recruiting Management and Training Administration in order to fully optimize their human resources, implement HR best practices and align their HR process with the corporate objectives.

“Realizing that Barton Malow is in the business of selling the expertise of its people, a primary function of the new HRMS was the ability to accurately and expeditiously track hundreds of contractors’ skill sets, competencies, and their unique training and education,” said Shafiq Lokhandwala, CEO of NuView Systems. “Our philosophy, which is embedded in the design of each NuViewHR module, is to specifically help corporate and HR executives leverage the HR discipline as a strategic asset, to focus on “employee effectiveness” and to align HR policy with the organization’s business goals.”
