Oniqua Offers No Cost, Risk-Free Trial of Leading MRO Inventory Optimization Solution

Trial program provides visibility into MRO inventory performance; actionable intelligence uncovers hidden waste, potential opportunities for significant cost savings and improved service levels

DENVER, Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Oniqua Intelligent MRO, a leading provider of analytics-based MRO technology and services, today announced it is offering a no cost trial of its best-of-breed MRO inventory optimization solution to potential new customers in asset-intensive industries.

The trial combines Oniqua's cloud-based MRO analytics technology and business logic with sample customer data to provide a comprehensive summary report that shows the current state of the participant's MRO materials inventory, as well as specific recommendations on how MRO inventory performance might be improved.

The trial is designed to uncover hidden areas of waste and potential opportunities for significant cost savings and enhanced service levels. Depending on the state of an organization's MRO inventory, materials data and operational challenges, participants will receive a variety of key insights, analyses and recommendations from the trial, such as:

  • Visibility into current inventory holdings through segmentation;
  • Usage demand supplier lead time analysis for effective stocking decisions to reduce stock out risk and minimize surplus build up;
  • Potential surplus/obsolete stock;
  • Inactive and non-stock;
  • Slow moving stock analysis;
  • Service level performance review;
  • Potential stockout caused by understocking.

"Our experience has shown that many large asset-intensive organizations see optimizing their MRO inventory as an overwhelming challenge," said Steve Herrmann, Executive Vice President, Marketing & Alliances, Oniqua Intelligent MRO.

"Everyone recognizes that reducing inventory is only one variable in the optimization equation. Assessing the potential risk to production is also paramount. With so much data to comb through and so many decisions to consider, there is often uncertainty about where to even begin.

"This no-cost trial program is designed to remove the guesswork and uncertainty. We run participants' existing data through our best-of-breed MRO analytics to uncover potential opportunities to reduce hidden waste and improve service levels. The findings arm participants with the actionable intelligence they need to make fact-based decisions about how to tackle their inventory challenges."

The risk-free, no obligation trial is available to qualified SAP users, and is limited to MRO inventory data. To qualify for the Oniqua trial, please visit www.oniqua.com/try-oniqua.
