Mölnlycke Health Care is a world-leading provider of single-use surgical and wound care products for customers, healthcare professionals and patients. The company was founded in 1849 as a textile manufacturer and has developed into an international group with 7,500 employees and sales and marketing offices in more than 30 countries.
"It is a major advantage for us that everyone is able to work in the same system and this gives us excellent control of all the data that is related to our products."
All healthcare companies have to comply with stringent regulation requirements, particularly with respect to patient safety. To be able to meet the requirements, Mölnlycke Health Care has teamed up with TECHNIA since 2001 as the supplier of a solution for Product Lifecycle Management (PLM).
“Mölnlycke Health Care was previously owned by SCA but when we became an independent company, we saw the need for our own PLM system. After a careful selection process, we chose TECHNIA as our partner and that’s when our journey started,” says Roderik Mooren, CIO of Mölnlycke Health Care.
The solution that was selected is based on the PLM system ENOVIA, which was developed by Dassault Systèmes and delivered together with TECHNIA’s proprietary products, TECHNIA Value Components. Using these, Mölnlycke Health Care was able to build and further develop its own customized application and associated user interface.
“Today, the system is distributed throughout the organization and we have about 700 users, from management, research and development, manufacturing and the marketing organization. It is a major advantage for us that everyone is able to work in the same system and this gives us excellent control of all the data that is related to our products and that we need to submit, for example, to authorities and customers,” says Roderik Mooren.
He sees continued development of the PLM system to be able to meet even tougher demands.
The biggest potential is in the digital area and the connection between the PLM system and, for example, websites and applications, both internally and externally. There is no doubt that there are excellent opportunities for TECHNIA to continue to grow together with Mölnlycke Health Care. “We’ve planned for a strong growth in the coming years,” says Roderick Morren.
