SDI is recognized as the innovator and pioneer of integrated supply for MRO. For over 40 years, we’ve provided remarkable and repeatable value in this traditionally “undermanaged” business segment. By offering a complete, fully integrated supply chain management service for MRO materials, we have transformed the traditional role of MRO within an organization into an opportunity to drive meaningful outcomes through our solutions-driven approach.
We are a pure integrator, impartial to brand and unbiased in our methodology. We live and breathe to deliver the best program for our clients, period. But we don’t just focus on price, we focus on value — minimizing the risk of extended production outages and delivering the lowest total cost of ownership.
Through decades of experience in supply chain management for MRO, SDI has invested in the resources to develop key components into SDI core competencies:
Data Management – Complete and accurate part descriptions ensure accurate ordering, on-time delivery, price consistency, inventory utilization, critical parts sharing and opportunities for manufacturer and supplier consolidation.
Sourcing & Supplier Relations – SDI provides a complete spend analysis to identify the best “go-to market” strategy for your MRO needs. We analyze the supply chain, identify opportunities and develop a solution that places our clients in the optimum position based on total cost.
Transactional Services – MRO is highly transactional, involving hundreds of suppliers, thousands of parts and tens of thousands of purchase order and invoice lines. SDI handles all of the transactional activity associated with processing your MRO orders, from requisition through supplier reconciliation and payment.
Compliance – As your single point of accountability, SDI uses proprietary technology and customized standard operating procedures to process your orders through your supply chain to achieve optimum compliance.
Engineering Services – Dedicated and highly qualified resources conduct data analytics, review process efficiencies and interact with your people to uncover issues that are affecting productivity. Our engineers leverage an SDI developed national database for OEM commercialization to identify approved commercial sources for OEM parts.
Storeroom Operations – SDI has the process and procedures to bring best practices, control and accountability to storeroom operations.
Inventory Optimization – SDI combines intellectual capital with leading edge technology and management expertise to forecast demand and evaluate vending opportunities.
