    MRO Data Cleansing is the answer, when it’s done right.

    Missing MRO part information, duplicate entries, and inconsistent codes make it impossible to retrieve accurate, actionable information from your EAM software system.

    You do need to clean up your data. But to gain the full benefits, get it done the right way, with SwainSmith’s quality research and meticulous coding structures.



    We identify duplicate records so you have only one catalog entry for each item. This improves reporting and eliminates duplicate inventory.


    Spelling, Syntax Cleanup

    We fix typos, spelling mistakes, improper syntax, and other errors so it’s easy to find records when you search for them.



    We standardize part descriptions using our proprietary Noun, Modifier, Attribute Dictionary containing over 4,100 noun-modifier pairs.


    Vendor Name, Item #

    We standardize the vendor name and number using industry information.



    We assign commodity and class codes using unique MRO taxonomies, giving you more ways to segment and analyze your data.


    Data Enrichment

    We fill in missing information, such as technical specifications, using data from the manufacturer and industry libraries.


    Manufacturer Name, Item #

    We standardize the manufacturer name and number using data from the manufacturer.


    Data Validation

    We validate each item against OEM data and provide a spec sheet link with pictures and additional information.


    UNSPC Assignment

    We match each item with its UNSPSC code and description, mapping your data to a global standard.

    Clean, structured MRO materials data is the key to an effective EAM system.

    The organizations we work with face similar challenges:

    • their EAM software is difficult to deploy and use
    • managers can’t get the information they need to run operations
    • reports from the software system are incomplete and unreliable

    EAM software is often blamed for these problems, when the real culprit is bad master data and coding structures. Let us show you what a difference MRO Data Cleansing can make.
