SDI Launches Mobile App for PPE-As-a-Service to Simplify Procurement for Schools

BRISTOL, PA. (PRWEB) JANUARY 27, 2021

In light of President Biden’s executive order supporting the reopening of schools and early childhood education providers, SDI, Inc., a leader in digital supply chain services and solutions, is launching a mobile app to streamline the process of procuring Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and other essential supplies, and complement its PPE-As-a-Service offering. Powered by SDI’s ZEUS technology, the app supports both iOS and Android platforms, and enables users to view and order PPE and other essential supplies.

“We’re eager to leverage the comprehensive features of our ZEUS technology and provide additional convenience to our partners,” said Kelly Kleinfelder, Chief Information Officer & SVP, Information Technology at SDI. “Demand for PPE remains at an all-time high and is unlikely to decrease any time soon; our new app ensures users can order items as needed and monitor usage anywhere, and at any time.”

Key features of the app include:

  • Powered by ZEUS. SDI’s comprehensive ZEUS platform includes a full suite of PPE services, including eProcurement, inventory management, supplier management and order to shipment tracking.
  • Real-time access. Users receive access to a catalog of PPE and other essential materials that can be accessed anywhere, anytime.
  • One-stop shopping convenience. Combined with SDI Sourcing & Procurement services, users can perform one-stop shopping for needed supplies from multiple vendors, eliminating the time-consuming task of going from supplier to supplier.
  • Visibility and control. The mobile app relies on ZEUS Analytics to provide visibility into the performance of supplies and service organization.

Through PPE-As-a-Service, school systems and other institutions have access to a strategic reserve of PPE supplies and essential materials from a vast network of vetted, secured and contracted suppliers.

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.
