Problem Area:

One million files or better said 1 terabyte – 1024 gigabyte of data.

That was roughly the amount of data scattered in literally every virtual corner of Malvern’s organisation - from hard drives to e-mails and floppy disks. The vast quantities of unstructured information were the main factor behind their decision to find a system enabling a more structured way of centralizing the data.

Furthermore, Malvern´s constant growth - from 200 people to more than 1,000, in the past decade as well as their expansion having offices on three continents, reinforced the need for a scalable system flexible enough to adapt to all their processes and support their pursuit of success.

Challenges:

  • Decentralized data storage
  • Huge amount of unstructured data
  • Heavy overall data searching process leading to use of older versions of files

Improvements:

  • Improved access to information. Now all important data is stored in one central location
  • More efficient work routines, allowing people to spend less time searching for documents, and managers can use Aras to check project status
  • Fewer design mistakes, due to the visibility and better organization of data, drawings and other product information always being up to date and aligned in the system

Background:

Malvern Instruments provides the materials and biophysical characterization technology and expertise that enables scientists and engineers to understand and control the properties of dispersed materials.

Malvern systems are used to measure particle size, particle shape, zeta potential, protein charge, molecular weight, mass, size and conformation, microcalorimetry, rheological properties and for chemical identification, advancing the understanding of dispersed systems across many different industries and applications.
