Cost Saving Opportunities in the MRO Equipment and Supplies Market

The adoption of various cost optimization levers helps buyers of MRO equipment realize cost savings and achieve category management and value benefits (including reduction in procurement complexities).

Technavio procurement experts have segmented the cost saving opportunities in the MRO equipment and supplies market into the following value-enhancement opportunities:

  • Adoption of technology
  • Supplier Competition
  • Adoption of negotiation strategies
  • Optimization of procurement practices
  • Bundling of services

Adoption of technology

Inventory management solutions such as KeepStock help buyers save time and costs by reducing transaction costs, lowering inventory carrying costs, and enabling automated order processing.

Digitization interlinks of all aspects of MRO help maintain previous maintenance and service records and e-signatures. They also help suppliers plan for preventive maintenance. Digital MRO helps buyers and suppliers to provide proper information to the appropriate people at the right time

Optimization of procurement practices

Buyers of MRO equipment engage with multiple suppliers to meet their supply and demand for various production operations. For instance, a buyer engages with a minimum of 10 different suppliers to meet 70%–80% of the MRO equipment demand.

Buyers that procure MRO equipment in bulk cannot make a detailed specification analysis to determine the suitable product that matches requirements. Buyers depend on suppliers' knowledge and experience for suitable product recommendations based on requirements and the type of industry in which the buyer operates.

Bundling of services

Buyers that manage their inventory with the help of in-house procurement teams can exercise better control over demand planning by integrating inventory management software with the firm’s CMMS and other related software such as ERP.
