Case

GN Thermoforming Equipment used spreadsheets to keep track of their data. They also operate out of both Canada and Europe with each branch using different systems and thus creating two different isolated processes.

GN wanted to unify their process between the two countries to make sure everyone was on the same page.

MasterSolve was able to assess GN’s current workflows and create new ones that made more sense for their day to day processes. After mapping out the current workflow at that time MasterSolve removed unnecessary, inefficient steps and added steps that would make the workflow more efficient. As a result, MasterSolve was able to standardize their process.

“Mastersolve enabled us to input all our Customer Feedback and Technical inquiries in one place, this is very important for us as we have two locations globally with technicians on both sides. Our team of technicians work closely together and having the information in a common place allows everyone to follow along and provide input quickly.”
