Datawatch Corporation: Binding Site Slashes Production Time and Saves Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars With Datawatch Self-Service Data Preparation

BEDFORD, Mass., Jan. 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Binding Site, the world
leader in special protein diagnostics, is saving hundreds of man-hours daily
and hundreds of thousands of dollars annually automating data processing in
its research using data preparation software from Datawatch Corporation
(NASDAQ-CM: DWCH).

Binding Site supplies the world's laboratories with clinical diagnostic tools
to diagnose and monitor specific cancers and immune disorders. During
production, it must constantly analyze the results of its scientific
instruments while producing a meticulous audit trail of data to comply with
FDA regulations.

The company used to have to re-key test results from print-outs generated by
its scientific laboratory instruments into a spreadsheet, manually correcting
and verifying each entry before the results could be officially vetted and
archived. Since Binding Site runs approximately 155 experiments per day
across 40 machines, data processing had become an enormous and costly
time-sink.

"The process was laborious and cumbersome, requiring on average two man-hours
per experiment, which is time that could be saved," said Dr. Adeel Mushtaq,
Head of Production Control at Binding Site.

When Binding Site recently modernized its business operations with a new ERP
system, Ian Rocky the IT Manager saw an opportunity to apply Datawatch's
self-service data preparation technology to save time and meet requirements.

Datawatch pulls in data from a wide range of unstructured and multi-structured
data formats like PDF, XML, HTML, text, spool and ASCII files that are
typically too challenging to integrate into analytical applications. Binding
Site uses Datawatch to automate the reading of PDF output files captured by
the ERP system from the instrumentation, identifying fields and updating an
Oracle database.

Long term, by eliminating manual data preparation processes, Binding Site will
save greater than $600,000 annually by reducing labor time alone in addition
to improving data workflow.

"And beyond the time and cost savings, Datawatch has accelerated our ability
to gather data. Our business processes will be improved thanks to our ability
to automate the capture of instrument data, speed the flow of business
information, and meet quality&regulatory requirements much more easily,"
Mushtaq added.

"Binding Site is the perfect example of how organizations can drive
efficiencies, save money and improve regulatory compliance and auditing with
automation. While other companies spend up to 80 percent of their analysts'
time on data preparation, typically with many errors, Binding Site is
quickly transforming raw information into reliable, consistent data sets
ready for data analysis and reporting," said Dan Potter, chief marketing
officer at Datawatch.
