Case Study

The global chemical manufacturer client engaged Synovos to cleanse and standardize its maintenance, repair and spare parts data. It provided a spreadsheet detailing 350,000 items in seven different languages that were housed at 33 different sites in four different regions around the world. It was a global Master Data Leadership project spanning 17 countries. About 60 percent of the data contained mismatches as well as missing product or location information, requiring Synovos personnel to go on-site to physically inventory the items.
