Improve MRO Sourcing (Maintenance, Repair, and Operations/Overhaul)
For many businesses, MRO – the maintenance, repair, and overhaul or operation of their equipment or facilities – is a critical indirect spend category for the business, particularly those in manufacturing, transportation, and retail. Whether there is direct customer interaction such as with airplanes or indirect such as with assembly plants, keeping equipment and facilities functional and performing well has a direct impact on financials.
The sourcing of materials and services associated with MRO often leads to very large, detailed, complex RFIs and RFPs, in order to appropriately assess and award suppliers against the vast array of MRO spend management categories. Many locations may be involved, with many different stakeholder or site preferences, and with detailed item specifications. Not to mention, the highly collaborative nature of many MRO supplier relationships needs to be considered as you create and manage MRO e-sourcing events.
