CASE STUDY

MRO Program for Inventory Reduction


Opportunity

Mature manufacturing facilities often leads to bloated stock levels and stagnant inventory turns. Using our proprietary analytic software, wesco integrated supply is able to identify and recommend actions to improve and reduce customer’s mro inventory. Wesco was able to help one of our customers by identifying that 66% of their MRO inventory was not used in over a year. this was an excellent opportunity for reduction.

Solution

We provided different iterations of reports to satisfy the specific customer requests and preferences in regards to organizing their inventory data. From there, customer on-site experts can review the provided information and work with our teams to reduce min/max levels, obsolete items and remove inventory from the plant.

Whether it’s simply updating our system or working together to collect and remove items, the Wesco integrated supply team works with our customers to get results.
