The Maintenance, Repair and Operations (MRO) industry is traditionally on the back end of technology. Analysts struggle with the limitations of spreadsheets to be effective in their reporting. The procurement analyst may not have the technical skillset to generate complex code to solve their problems, but they are the experts in the data. SDI wanted to build a procurement database with Google-like search capabilities so that analysts could find appropriate vendors and pre-price products without ever having to go to market. Utilizing Excel, SDI was only able to pre-price only a small number items without going to market.
