Movado Unifies Global Design and Manufacturing Teams with Nasuni

Swiss watchmaker achieves the scalable, easy-to-manage file infrastructure it needs to support continued innovation

In addition to its own Concord, Ebel, Movado, Olivia Burton, and MVMT timepieces, Swiss watchmaker Movado creates licensed products for Ferrari, Coach, Tommy Hilfiger, Hugo Boss, Lacoste, and other leading brands. The quest for innovation is even more important now that the company has grown into a global brand with 1,300 employees spread across 30 countries, with an evolving its digital footprint. Movado’s designers and suppliers work heavily with the Adobe Creative Suite, along with CAD, 3D files, SolidWorks, and other data-intensive applications. Unacceptable file sharing delays, costly storage duplication, and increasing backup windows prompted Movado’s IT leaders to look for a new solution. As part of a dual cost-first, cloud-first strategy, Movado has deployed Nasuni in 7 locations across the U.S., Europe and Asia. The company now enjoys the scalable file storage, advanced data protection, simple storage administration, and cross-office collaboration it needs to continue advancing its state-of-the-art products.
