Storeroom solutions – an inventory of better ideas.
Overstocked or obsolete MRO inventory is a real-world issue for too many businesses. SDI’s storeroom solutions prevent both scenarios – we focus on ensuring compliance with MRO policies and procedures, while providing timely reporting about usage patterns by product, by individual, by department. This is our world. We know how to offer help.
We’re in this together.
Starting with our proprietary, patent-pending storeroom assessment, we work closely with our clients to determine the optimal storeroom solutions. Factors include production and maintenance schedules, number of SKUs to be managed, number of storerooms, activity per shift, and the overall projected scope of work. The better our understanding of your goals and objectives, the more effective our storeroom operations solution.
Storeroom solutions on-site, off-site, and everything in between.
SDI storeroom solutions might include management of existing client personnel or the deployment of our personnel to operate your storeroom. We can provide experienced on-site professionals to physically manage the transactional side of inventory management (issuing, receiving, parts put-away, cycle counting and reconciliation and returns) while processing purchases through our SDiExchange e-Procurement program.
More than just inventory management.
Beyond smarter inventory management, you’ll also achieve improved service levels, reduced freight and handling costs, reduced inventory carrying costs, actual lead-time data, and notification of over-utilized and under-utilized parts, all of which results in a lower total cost for your MRO inventory. We’ll help carefully tighten your storeroom inventory, but we’ll also give you visibility and information at every turn – which gives you incredible control and ultra-efficiency regarding your MRO.
How we help, day to day.
Whether on-site or off, the SDI storeroom staff focuses on transactional inventory management (issuing, receiving, cycle counting and reconciliation), customer service and continuous improvement. Technology-wise, our storeroom systems connect seamlessly with your current inventory and work-order management set-up. SDI employs our proprietary cloud-based MRO supply chain management system, SDiExchange.

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.
“5S” is a process methodology that ensures “everything has a place and there is a place for everything.” There are numerous references to 5S practices throughout the Internet and via professional courses, but SDI considers 5S more than an industry buzzword.
