A leading fluorochemical manufacturer was facing
significant inefficiencies in their Joint Measurement Report (JMR) cost-tracking process. With reports managed
through convoluted email threads and scattered across disconnected systems, transparency, productivity, and
decision-making suffered. They turned to Titan Workspace for a tailored solution that can be easily integrated
within their Microsoft 365 environment.
What is JMR?
JMR- Joint Measurement Reports (JMRs) are monthly progress
reports used in the fluorochemical industries to track project costs and quantify completed work. JMRs compile
measurements, expenses, and other key data to facilitate invoicing, vendor payments, and cost analysis across
Business Challenges faced by the fluorochemical manufacturing
- Manual JMR Process: The manual process for checking JMR resulted in numerous pending reports within the
organization, hindering timely decision-making and financial clarity.
- Email-Based Communication: Reports and clearances were exchanged through email chains leading to information
getting lost or ignored within flooded inboxes. Due to the manual approach, it became challenging for unit heads
to locate essential documents and complete the necessary processes.
- Lack of Transparency: Since the JMR was shared across multiple departments, the manual process lacked
transparency, causing delays and confusion in the clearance process.
- Time-Consuming Manual Checks: The manual checking process through email and SAP contributed to lengthy clearance
times, impacting overall efficiency and productivity.
