iSPIR provides real-time collaboration between vendors, contractors and the enterprise for maintaining spare part records. This enables the enterprise to reduce the time spent on administering these records. The result is dramatic improvements in managing demand for replacements, and the costs of running spare parts inventories.
iSPIR's capability extends beyond enterprise boundaries, linking suppliers and shippers. This makes response times minimal, compared to the replacement and transport backlogs that used to occur.
