Our proven methodology helps improve your inventory practices by setting in place skilled storeroom personnel, management, standard operating procedures, and technologies to manage and optimize your MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Operations) inventory levels.

Once we have performed your storeroom assessment, we deliver our recommendations, along with the financial impact of the identified issues. Keeping your KPIs and business drivers in the forefront, we partner with you to design a solution that tackles the identified issues. We develop a project plan and timeline that outlines the steps needed to meet your objectives.
What differentiates our approach is that we partner with you to implement your selected recommendations and treat the entire process as a project, complete with milestones. We provide a reliability manager to drive your storeroom project and execute on the project plan, including agreed-upon deliverables, documentation, and sign-off milestones.
