The greatest issue facing procurement professionals regarding MRO spares is the vast range of products and services involved and the unpredictability of their demands. This can potentially leave businesses trying to deal with a large number of suppliers in various geographical locations, each with different ordering and delivery systems and processes.
First-hand experience of managing our own inventory levels has shown us what it takes to drive efficiencies, and we make this expertise available to all our customers.
Using state-of-the-art stock management processes, we will:
- Profile your MRO inventory, based on current and previous usage
- Rationalise the number of manufacturer brands you use
- Reduce obsolescence and allow for manufacturers lead times
- Rank your usage, to establish an optimum ‘stock profile’
- Negotiate best price from our extensive range of quality suppliers
Sprint can establish a consignment stock on your premises or at our warehouse, when you only pay for the stock you use and we also offer product on a VMI (Vendor Managed Inventory) basis.
Customers with larger scale requirements can benefit from our ‘onsite’ service, where we set up a dedicated branch on your premises to handle your MRO spares management.
Additionally, we’re able to provide specialist training for your maintenance, engineering and production staff. This covers new products and processes as well as on stock planning and profiling and is designed to help you build an effective MRO operation.
OEM Parts Conversion
We know that returning to the OEM for replacement parts can be an extremely expensive exercise which is why Sprint can also undertake a thorough evaluation of the parts you purchase and store from original equipment manufacturers (OEM). We will then identify standard items which can be sourced safely elsewhere and supply them to you at the best possible price without jeopardizing machine warranty.
