Eaton Leverages a Central Space to Store All Corporate Data & Allow Each Department Secure Access

Eaton is a power management company with annual sales in excess of $22 billion. Eaton provides energy-efficient solutions that help its customers effectively manage electrical, hydraulic and mechanical power more efficiently, safely and sustainably. Eaton has approximately 102,000 employees and has customers in more than 175 countries.


Eaton is a complex, highly cross-functional organisation that has grown significantly both organically and through acquisitions. They required a central space to store all their corporate data in order to allow other departments to securely access specific information directly rather than requesting it via their Law department. Access needed to be for multiple users and controlled by the administrator with advanced user rights.


Diligent Entities created a central depository for Eaton’s corporate data whilst allowing secure 24/7 access for multiple users within the company. Diligent Entities enables per-user access, giving the Diligent Entities administrators complete control.


Diligent Entities saved Eaton significant time by allowing direct access to the users that needed corporate information such as lists of signatories and company addresses. Additionally, Diligent Entities decreased the amount of manual data entry needed which subsequently improved accuracy.

“Diligent Entities allowed us to centralise corporate data in one place, whether owned by legal, finance, tax or treasury.” Susanne Marston, Vice President & Chief Counsel – EMEA, Eaton.
