Company

Headquartered in Southfield, Michigan, Federal-Mogul Corporation is a $7.5B supplier of powertrain and safety technologies, serving original equipment manufacturers of automotive, light commercial, heavy-duty, agricultural, marine, rail, off-road, and industrial vehicles. Through its two business divisions, Federal-Mogul Powertrain and Federal-Mogul Motorparts, the company also provides a broad portfolio of products and solutions to the global vehicle aftermarket, including power generation, aerospace, rail, and industrial customers.

Challenge

Until recently, Federal-Mogul relied on a single data exchange solution on an internally hosted server in the U.S., and two legacy systems based on ENGDAT/OFTP in Europe. Administrative efforts and related costs to manage the three local installations were significant.

To eliminate the need for local hardware and reduce administrative costs, Federal-Mogul sought a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) data exchange solution. The company knew that the transition from its existing data exchange solution would be complex because of Federal-Mogul's three separate internal networks and dispersed corporate and partner locations. In addition, the firm recognized that all of its users would have to be manually migrated, further complicating the process.

Results

  • Centralized files and data easily accessed from any device with a secure internet connection
  • A common, intuitive user interface for both partners and employees
  • Significantly reduce operational costs
