Case Studies

Our customer is a multi-site and diverse business with a global presence dedicated to the manufacture of engineering solutions for a range of applications. They struggled with data storage and effective cataloguing of data in a central location with the capability of being updated and accessed across the business. Individual site processes managed their MSDS and composition listings, but needed to alleviate the workload on their staff.
