Gujarat Fluorochemicals Limited Securely Manages 11 million Documents in single M365 Tenant with Titan Workspace


Gujarat Fluorochemicals Limited (GFL), a leading manufacturer of fluorochemicals headquartered in Dahej, Gujarat faced a significant challenge in managing and securing the live data of its rapidly growing volume of documents. While talking about the documents to manage, including contracts, invoices, proposals, JMR cost-tracking, procurement tracking, lab reporting, and more, the company's existing document management system was struggling to keep up.

GFL needed a solution that could provide centralized storage with robust security to secure their live data enabling efficient search and retrieval. Apart from the specifications and customization, the business needed a solution that could fit their budget and get implemented within a short period of time.

Challenges and needs of the fluorochemical manufacturing company

  • Uncontrolled document proliferation: GFL's documents were scattered across various folders and systems including emails and Excel sheets, making it difficult to find the right information quickly.
  • Version control issues: Multiple versions of the same document existed, leading to confusion and errors.
  • Limited accessibility: Remote employees and external collaborators had limited access to critical documents. The rapidly growing business demanded a solution that can be easily accessed remotely by different departments.
  • Manual Process: GFL has engineering plants spread across various locations. Previously, all documentation processes were managed manually on paper. This caused significant delays as physical documents had to be sent back and forth from the manufacturing plants over long distances between sites.
  • Compliance concerns: GFL needed a system that could ensure compliance with industry regulations and data privacy laws with a centralized repository.
  • Performance issues: SharePoint Online list has a threshold limit of five thousand documents per library and with the scale of more than 11 million documents it was almost impossible to manage it without compromising of performance and security.
  • Time-consuming document search: Employees waste valuable time hunting for documents within the extensive libraries, hindering productivity.
  • Improper filing: Generic SharePoint indexing could not capture the nuanced details and descriptors needed for quick and accurate searches. Adding custom meta-data was complex for business users without IT expertise.
  • Ineffective search results: Without proper categorization, searches miss relevant documents or return irrelevant ones, wasting time and effort.

How Titan Workspace solved the challenges faced by GFL

In 2023 year, GFL implemented Titan Workspace's Document Management System Module to address these challenges. The solution was integrated seamlessly with GFL's existing Microsoft 365 environment, leveraging the familiar SharePoint interface and Power Automate capabilities. This made it easy for users to adopt the new system and minimize disruption to their workflows.

Interestingly within just 1 year, GFL has successfully stored 11 million documents within the document management system in a single M365 tenant.
