K:spir is set to revolutionise the SPIR process

There is a change on the horizon to the antiquated SPIR (Spare Parts Interchangeability Record). The current process has long hindered the success of oil and gas upstream projects by perpetuating the exchange of poor-quality data. This leads to poor decision making that can have a profound effect on cost, time and resource. In an industry striving for more automation and efficiency, there is clearly a need for a 21st century solution.

At KOIOS Master Data we have a deep understanding of SPIRs, having had long experience in materials management. Using that knowledge, we have designed a unique piece of software to overcome the complications and confusion that the current SPIR process creates. 

With K:spir, we aim to introduce a new industry standard. Based on the exchange of quality data from a single source, K:spir enables decision making, saves cost and eliminates waste. 

K:spir is the only SPIR software designed this century using ISO 8000 standard data. It creates machine-readable data that retains quality throughout the chain, enabling accurate decision making and resulting in reduced cost, time and resource.

What can K:spir do for you?

K:spir has a host of unique and innovative features that deliver accurate, transparent and meaningful data to steer successful decision making.

Data quality guaranteed

K:spir uniquely locks in data quality right at the start of the process, using ISO 8000 standard data. Data is structured and part descriptions are consistent and safe from misinterpretation. Data retains its integrity at all stages of the project.

N Accurate forecasting and reordering
N Save on data aggregation costs
N Brand integrity for manufacturers

Smart spares forecasting

K:spir is the only SPIR software that uses your maintenance and repair strategy to determine the spares requirement.

N Accurate spares forecasting
N Money back on your bottom line
N Reduction in unused parts and warehouse space

Instant reporting

K:spir generates instant reports on the completeness and cost of spares and is configurable to your needs. It can also create a Maintenance Bill of Materials (BoM).

N Saves dramatically on time spent creating reports
N On the spot analysis to enable decision making
N Provides metrics to support project goals

Cloud based and portable

K:spir generates portable, machine-readable data. It is cloud based, providing simultaneous access to all stakeholders in the chain from a single source, right from the beginning of the project.

N Eliminates costly data handling and resource
N Transparency and accountability at all stages of the project
N Data is portable between devices and computer systems
