Johnson Matthey ‘Enlightens’ its Oil & Gas division
Cambridge industrial heavyweight Johnson Matthey is working with UK software firm Ideagen to enhance business improvement across its global Oil & Gas operations.
Enlighten, Ideagen’s cloud based GRC software product, will be implemented by Johnson Matthey – replacing a legacy system.
The move is designed to allow Johnson Matthey efficiently measure objectives and KPIs (key performance indicators) across the business as well as manage all aspects of non-conformances and internal auditing.
The technology will also ensure a smooth transition to the latest version of the ISO 9001 standard, according to Gavin Chatto, quality officer at Johnson Matthey.
He said: “We are excited to be working with Ideagen and its Enlighten product which will allow us to better measure key performance indicators across the business.
“With our current system, it is difficult to generate metrics that allow us to assess our performance as a business and also provide us with targets for overall business improvement.
“In adopting Ideagen Enlighten, it provides us with software which is simple to configure and electronically mirrors the way we work. The look and feel of the system is also key to encouraging user engagement, and in this respect we found Enlighten to be head and shoulders above the competition.
“We will be using the system for all aspects of non-conformance reporting and subsequent corrective and preventive actions. The features of the system make it is easier for our staff to analyse performance data and continually improve as a business.
“We have a large audit programme and, as we perform around 50 per year, Enlighten will play a key role in electronically scheduling, reporting and action tracking. This will create greater efficiency within the team and bring a clear benefit to the business.”
As a world leading technology company providing what are regarded as unique and specialised detection, diagnostic and measurement solutions, achieving compliance with the latest version of ISO 9001 – ISO 9001:2015 – is an important milestone for Johnson Matthey.
