Critical, Complex, and Fragmented: MRO is a Challenging Category

PA Makes Sense of the MRO Spend Chaos

  • Save our members 15-25% total cost of ownership
  • Offer the best MRO analytics in the market, showing you what you buy, from whom, and where, at SKU level
  • Be a hands-on partner, with on-site implementation support to help your teams on-board and realize full value potential
  • It’s free! Our members pay nothing – ever – to us, but we pay millions annually in rebates
  • It’s easy and risk-free: implementation doesn’t have to take the place of your existing priorities and you can leave the program any time with no penalty (members rarely leave though: our historical retention rate is ~99%)

Becoming a Member Has Big Benefits

Our Members realize savings as soon as they join the program, and the average savings is 12-18%. Additionally, with a growing Member group of 750+, a billion dollars of managed spend, and negotiated pricing on over 4 million SKUs, we constantly ensure Member prices are competitively advantaged versus market. This is the PA “Perpetual RFP” that ensures our members have the best aggregate pricing, without having to conduct a laborious, time-intensive RFP.

We never stop leveraging scale.

Our dedicated Implementation Team creates a tailored onboarding plan for each member. For many companies, change management is the key challenge to overcome in order to harvest value. Our implementation plan execution includes a PA project manager, frequent PA/new member in-progress reviews, PA “boots-on-the-ground,” and detailed implementation tracking / reporting. Even after our Members are fully on-boarded, we never stop looking for more value.

Analytics. It’s in our name and is the heart of our value proposition. Our process starts with PA benchmarking your existing spend cube to determine the savings potential. Then, PA puts each Member’s data to work, using insights from supplier data to drive multiple dimensions of cost savings. These include SKU consolidation, MRO product standardization, vendor rationalization, product substitution, and documented value-add programs.

We never stop searching for the next dollar of savings.

What PA does is detailed, data-driven, and often-times complex, but managing that complexity is what PA does for a living every day. With the PA Team on their side, Members can focus on their key priorities and let PA handle the challenging work of optimizing MRO spend. Transitioning to our program is risk-free, with no fees, no term, and we provide the people and data resources to make the program successful.

We never stop working for you.
