MRO Master Data Standardization

At Synovos, we believe high quality data is the building block to a successful MRO supply chain management program.

Synovos incorporates MRO Master Data Standardization from Day 1 as part of all integrated supply programs. It’s that important.

Synovos MRO Master Data Standardization is a comprehensive approach to improving and sustaining the critical data that enables inventory optimization, strategic sourcing, plant reliability and maintenance effectiveness. It’s a journey and Synovos is with you every step of the way.

At the outset of any integrated supply engagement, Synovos evaluates your data to identify areas of opportunity where improved data will drive value. Whether the data is for one site or multiple sites, Synovos then performs data cleansing and standardization. When necessary, Synovos physically inventories and evaluates your spare parts, going hands-on to improve accuracy. The result is verified data that is used across the integrated supply program to leverage spend, streamline storeroom operations, and generate more effective maintenance.

Synovos has the experience and institutional knowledge to lead a global project to enrich MRO data and parts in order to develop a sustainable database. Synovos’ project management is excellent, the team is responsive and flexible and they showed their capability in working through issues unique to specific sites across the globe. They interact directly with the subject matter experts at all global sites providing education, guidance and encouragement to meet timelines.
