Success Story with Clarity and itdesign

itdesign’s total reliability has been one of the bases of our successful partnership, and this has been further bolstered by the strong relationship of trust. We communicate very openly with each other. Suggestions are not simply immediately rubber-stamped. They are critically scrutinized. But itdesign also has incredible expertise that is second to none in Germany.

Use Case with Clarity


  • Mapping the entire project landscape with one tool: from documentation and financial planning all the way to approval and monitoring
  • Different functional needs of different business units
  • Analogue approval processes with traditional checklists and signatures were too slow, inflexible, and no longer up to date

  • Clarity as a centralized project planning tool: all projects must be entered in Clarity
  • Efficient planning of resources and portfolios
  • Satisfaction of different units’ needs thanks to Clarity’s process design flexibility
  • Approval processes in Clarity that are specially adapted to the units’ individual needs – paperless, fast, and completely digital
  • Agile project management as key success factor
  • More agile and faster action on the market
  • Establishing Clarity as digitalization tool

Müller Group’s Success Story with Clarity and itdesign

Digital approval processes, agile project management, and a long-standing partnership with itdesign: This is the success story of Unternehmensgruppe Theo Müller with Clarity.



First-Hand Experience

At Müller, the introduction of digital approval in Clarity has significantly sped up the entire process, from project request to approval. We no longer need paper, either. Everything is now mapped digitally. Now you can see quite transparently where an approval is pending and whether an action is still needed.
