Gordian’s Lanza makes advanced planning look simple

Lanza leaps forward as the latest version of Gordian’s Spare Parts Management Studio

Dutch MRO spares consultancy bureau Gordian Logistic Experts takes innovation to the next level with their new MRO spare parts management software technology suite. The Lanza technology suite, formerly known as Spare Parts Management Studio, is created with the end user in mind and makes managing spare parts simple and intuitive, while enabling the most sophisticated optimisation techniques. During the final run up to the official release of Lanza, in the fall of 2021, the team at Gordian offers a sneak preview and a full functionality demonstration.

Spare Parts Management Studio taken to a higher level

Over the past 15 years, Gordian has been successfully using technology as an enabler for their services in the form of their Spare Parts Management Studio (SPMS). With the product already being a proven solution Gordian decided to take its technology to a higher level, and to make the software a stand-alone branded entity called Lanza. Lanza offers end users access to an optimised technology suite, presented in a simple and intuitive way.
