How Rehmann Enhanced Their Firm's Efficiency with Blue J Diagramming

In our recent chat with Erik Schumacher, CPA Principal Advisory & Tax Services at Rehmann, we explored how he and his firm improved efficiency using Blue J Diagramming.

Before adopting Blue J, Rehmann relied on PowerPoint, Visio, and Excel for diagramming, which proved cumbersome, time-consuming, and ill-suited for legal structure charting. This resulted in inconsistent branding and hesitancy to take on diagramming projects. 

"I've been in the industry for over 15 years, primarily working in the private equity space. Throughout my career, I've gained extensive experience in creating, reviewing, and analyzing diagrams. I must say, I have not come across a better platform in terms of ease of use. We have instances where we've entrusted this tool to our junior staff with limited experience, and they've found it to be user-friendly and self-explanatory."
