Storeroom Solutions

Storeroom solutions – an inventory of better ideas.

Storeroom Solutions

Slow moving and obsolete (SLOB) MRO inventory is a real-world issue for many businesses. SDI’s storeroom management solutions prevent SLOB– we focus on ensuring compliance with MRO policies, procedures, and storeroom management best practices. We also provide timely reporting about usage patterns by product, by individual, and by department. This is our world. We know how to offer help.

We’re in this together.

Starting with our proprietary, MRO 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
  • The overall projected scope of work

The better our understanding of your goals and objectives, the more effective our storeroom solutions are for your operation. Watch the video below to learn more about SDI’s approach to storeroom management.

Storeroom Management and MRO Inventory Management

Storeroom management on-site, off-site, and everything in between.

SDI's storeroom solutions can 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 ZEUS e-Procurement program.

Our storeroom services are 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 our storeroom solutions help, day to day.

Whether on-site or off, the SDI storeroom management 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, ZEUS.

Success Story

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.

SDI at Work

Data standardization is part of Google’s new initiative to help people find relevant datasets.  With a recent study from Data Science Central, it’s estimated that data scientists spend 60% of their time preparing data for analysis, rather than performing the analysis itself.  Therefore, the goal of this schema is to drive standardization so that more time can be spent analyzing it.
