Off the shelf, fully hosted solutions make rapid impact
Everybody wants results now, so we always look for ways that save time and deliver a rapid impact, without compromising quality. As a small company, we are dynamic and responsive, unhampered by long internal approval processes and inflexible working practices.
We can give you quick answers to your questions, often from the first person you speak to, and offer flexibility to suit your particular circumstance.
We deliver off-the-shelf software solutions that are ready to go “out of the box”. They are hosted, come with pre-loaded content, such as our materials data technical dictionary
, and are easy to use with minimal training.
For data cleaning projects, we have developed relationships with a number of carefully selected content production facilities which enables us to ramp up our volume rates very quickly if needed.
Accuracy is embedded in our software and processes
Materials data needs to be precise - there isn’t a postman to put the inaccurately addressed envelopes in the right mailbox! If the product or spare part is described poorly, it can have any number of consequences, ranging from wasted time and money spent searching and sourcing, through to expensive equipment failures, downtime and safety hazards.
We have developed a data structure specifically to describe materials, which is one of the key foundations of our product set.
Our background is in spare parts and we have a comprehensive technical dictionary
available to use for this data, but our applications work equally well with product data or direct materials.
Indeed, our data cleaning
tools have also been
successfully used to deliver improved visibility of complex oilfield drilling equipment, to build an office products catalogue in 12 languages and to manage master data for medical supplies.
The right data structure is critical, but needs to be applied by well trained staff backed up with sound management processes. sparesFinder has embedded numerous automated routines into our software applications to bring additional rigour to the process and ensure a very high level of quality assurance.
Our focus has allowed us to develop a complete offering
By remaining very focused on materials, we are able to offer a comprehensive series of solutions to increase efficiency and save money in this area. We develop, own and host the underlying software tools used for
processes and manage our relationship with you directly for projects involving these activities.
We extend these core foundations to broader solutions through consulting partners
, supply integrators
and other non-competing software companies
with whom we have built up relationships.
Additional services available include maintenance strategy, stock level analysis, supply chain rationalisation, stores management, MRO procurement solutions, MDM and data governance implementation, on-site inspection and data capture, pricing advice and asset information management.
Many customers over many years make our delivery reliable
We have been operating since 1998 and during this time have acquired a great deal of experience, learning what works and what doesn’t work. By capturing this knowledge in both our software tools
and supporting processes, we have made it readily accessible for your benefit.
We have worked with some of the biggest companies in the world, often on a global basis across multiple regions and languages. Our blue chip customer list
from many different sectors speaks for itself. We are proud of our record of delivering a reliable, secure and predictable service.
Our hosted software is developed using Microsoft’s fully supported development environment, taking advantage of the latest development tools and techniques, but always at a safe distance from the bleeding edge!
Our low overheads and SaaS model enable us to deliver best value
Our aim is to provide the best value to our customers
, taking into account both their budgets and needs. We strive to be the most competitively priced, but, given the very high rates of return our projects achieve, we are never shy in offering the right package to ensure our customers maximise their benefits, even if it sometimes costs a bit more!
With any project, selecting the right tools and working with subject matter experts are essential success factors and we deliver them both.
sparesFinder is proud to be a focused niche player, unencumbered by large corporate overheads. Like many other web-based companies, we have proved that it is possible to deliver truly world class solutions with a small dedicated team.
We have chosen the “Software as a Service” (SaaS) delivery model which has many benefits for our customers, reducing their internal costs and helping to keep our own costs and prices low.
