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 (reduce process / product spend) to effectiveness (increase fill rates and improve supplier relationships) 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). Last week, I blogged about part 2 of this series.
They also mentioned how using an MRO-as-a-service provider can help deliver best practices and value in a way that 3PL providers can perform in logistics, contract manufacturers in manufacturing or managed service providers (MSPs) in contingent labor.
They say by intelligently embedding an MRO-as-a-service provider into the procurement and supply chain operating model, you can build an agile supply organization that flexes and grows with the business. And it also evolves the value of MRO category staff in procurement and MRO operations groups from cost centers to value centers.
