Where is the actual stock kept?
Members keep their stocks in their respective stock rooms. Sparrow keeps data only.
Can we control what we share on Sparrow?
100%. Sparrow members have full control over what they share. We never share parts unless approved by the owners.
Do I share parts or data with my competitors?
Sparrow aims to connect anyone who owns similar parts. This includes competitors.
So you may share parts with or use parts from competitors. However, all transactions and data remains anonymous.
Why does Sparrow work?
Demand for parts can be unpredictable. To avoid downtime, operators need to overstock. By pooling, stock can become optimal. Longer term, operators benefit from lower stocks and higher availability.
