Innovative MRO Software and Technology
MRO software and technology designed expressly for the MRO industry.
Searching, finding, ordering and tracking parts and repairs doesn’t get any easier or more intuitive than SDI’s current MRO system. From intuitive search technology to mobile storeroom and MRO software apps that allow accurate and timely cycle count, issuing, picking and delivery – even a vendor portal for suppliers to enter invoices and acknowledge POs – SDI has all the MRO software and technology in place to keep your entire supply chain well-connected, well-informed and ultra-efficient.
Non-stock issues just became non-issues.
If you use your ERP system to maintain inventory, you know how difficult searching and finding parts can be – so your company relies on non-stock purchases. This kind of spot buying wastes money and creates obsolete inventories. Not so with SDI – with our MRO software and cataloguing technologies, master data management and cross-reference data searching, SDI can add structure, order and visibility to a typically inefficient non-stock scenario.
Plug-&-play integrated SAP solution.
An integral part of SDI’s solution is direct integration with your company’s existing CMMS system. By imbedding middleware, SDiConnect provides a cloud-based, licensed connection to SAP with no customizations needed – our MRO software even runs the storeroom, all you do is enter work orders in SAP, we do the rest.
A seamless transition for your people.
You, your planners, and maintenance personnel don’t need to change systems – all picking, materials, purchasing and replenishment go into SDiExchange. No need for purchasing modules. Instead of dealing with 3,000 invoices each month for indirect material, with SDI, you receive just one.
On-site vending and point-of-use kiosks.
Critical parts can now be within yards of the equipment on your manufacturing floor – thanks to SDI’s strategic alliance with AutoCrib vending and point-of-use solutions. One swipe of a security card and the part is yours. Plus, all storeroom inventories are updated automatically via SDiExchange.
Patented assessment tools – and beyond.
SDI’s patented Best-in-Class assessment tools align to each phase of your enterprise MRO service model to help identify process improvements for operating efficiency and enhanced service levels that go beyond cost avoidance and piece-price savings.
To complement those popular tools, SDI offers an integrated, scalable and personalized technology solution platform that combines an entire portfolio of proprietary solutions as part of our true 360-degree lifecycle approach to MRO…

Our former solution provider was not independent; they were a supplier of parts. It's not the best thing to have a supplier be your MRO outsourcing provider. With SDI, we have a truly independent sourcing agent looking after our best interests.
In the third post in this series on MRO As-a-Service by Spend Matters, Pierre Mitchell and Michael Lamoureux talk about how managing MRO as a process delivers benefits from efficiency to effectiveness and beyond to an evolutionary phase. The next generation of value, MRO-as-a-Service, helps organizations build intelligent, agile, scalable and integrated supply chains (direct and indirect).
The project team has worked its way through Define, Measure, Analyze, and Improve. It’s time to begin the Control phase. The key stakeholders gather to evaluate the solution as implemented and create a plan to sustain the improvements. The goal is to standardize the improved processes, establish an audit schedule and schedule periodic follow-up to identify additional opportunities for improvement.
