SDI pioneers a paradigm shift in supply chain management with the launch of its Supply Chain Cooperative. By aligning market dynamics, supplier intelligence, and robust analytics, SDI aims to optimize industrial procurement and boost value for both members and supplier partners.
BRISTOL, Pa., June 5, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Digital supply chain solutions leader, SDI, introduces the Supply Chain Cooperative - a transformative solution tailored to conquer the complexity and fragmentation that burdens organizations' plant and facility maintenance supply chains.
The Supply Chain Cooperative distinguishes itself from a traditional Group Purchasing Organization (GPO), leveraging SDI's five decades of specialized experience in Maintenance, Repair, and Operations (MRO). This initiative taps into SDI's unique combination of market, category, and supplier intelligence, as well as robust analytics and negotiation expertise.
Alina Aronova, SDI's Chief Transformation Officer, shares: "The Supply Chain Cooperative represents an evolution in MRO supply chain management. We're leveraging our profound expertise and unique infrastructure to deliver immediate and ongoing value in an area of spend that's often overlooked, effectively shifting the leverage from suppliers to buyers."
Initiating its operations with the categories of Janitorial/Sanitation Supplies, PPE, General Industrial Supplies, and Lab Supplies, the Cooperative will progressively incorporate additional categories based on market dynamics and member interest. This approach ensures an evolving sourcing strategy that keeps pace with the market. Future category sourcing events will be announced as they occur, providing organizations with opportunities to join when they stand to benefit most.
Aronova adds: "This is a strategic foundation for excellence in MRO supply chain management. Our members will immediately benefit from our advantaged programs, experiencing significant, ongoing value as our leverage amplifies with growing membership."
SDI's Supply Chain Cooperative offers a forward-thinking solution to the common struggles of resource constraints and competing priorities in supply chain management. It connects plant maintenance and multi-site facilities with strategic supplier partners, fostering collaboration and innovation through a continuous rebate program.
