With support for preventative maintenance and spot repairs for internal equipment and warranty and service-based maintenance for customer equipment, Sabe provides a level of integration that traditional ERP systems don’t and a level of integration that stand-alone equipment management tools can’t.

Sabe brings the critical yet traditionally poorly managed and unintegrated task of equipment maintenance into the fold as a first class function, increasing equipment availability, shop throughput, and customer satisfaction while decreasing the costs of downtime and replacement of poorly maintained equipment.

  • Equipment History and Financial Reporting
    • Cost Distributions - assign G/L Accounts for Labor and Material expenses by Equipment and Maintenance Order type, allowing different distributions for different departments or for repair versus preventative Maintenance Orders.
