Savance Enterprise - Wholesale Distribution ERP Software Illustration

Savance Enterprise Was Born


The product now known as Savance Enterprise was created in 1999, and functions as an ERP business system application suite. Because a few of the principles worked for an electrical distributor, we quickly recognized the opportunity to reduce manual data entry and the inefficient paper trail. Since then, we have strived to keep our software on the leading edge of the sales and distribution software market.

Datamiser - Plant Floor Data Collection

The Beginnings of Datamiser


Since 1999, because of our relationship with the industrial automation industry due to our staff's prior experience, we have taken on many consulting jobs focusing on software used for running the factory. One of the repeat jobs we kept being contracted to do was to collect data points from machines on the plant floor and do something with that data. Some had us just log it to a file, some had us log it to a relational database, and some had us printing labels. After the 3rd or 4th project, we decided we'd create a product, even if it was for our own use. We used our experience and technology for the prior projects along with the years of industry experience to create what we now call Savance Datamiser. We've taken the competitive products that we've seen and used and improved on every aspect we felt needed improvement. Today, Datamiser is a strong solution for any size organization looking to get measurable data for quality control, scrap reduction, or to drive some part of the production process. We have customers in automotive, medical, food and beverage, and more.

EIOBoard Was Created


While being forced to use another company's badly devised electronic in out board solution, we became motivated to write our own status board software. We had designed software for the business world since day one, so it was frustrating to use a software that could not be accessed remotely, made it hard to change your status, did not have any searching capabilities, was far from scalable, and went down frequently. We wanted to build an electronic in out board with a better overall design that could be updated from anywhere and was much more user friendly. Out of this desire, Savance EIOBoard was born!

Our First EIOBoard Sale


Savance's first sale after launching our newly developed EIOBoard status board software took place on December 1st, 2003 and since that time; we have acquired several thousands of users! We have military, educational and healthcare institutions, governmental organizations, churches and non-profits, and many other organizations as part of the EIOBoard community.

Savance Health Patient Self Check-In Solution

Solutions for the Healthcare Industry


Over time, we discovered that our clients in the healthcare sector wanted additional features and a software solution tailored specifically to their needs. As a company that prides itself on responding positively to our clients, we developed and launched Savance Health in 2009. Our goal was to provide HIPAA-compliant solutions to improve efficiency and workflow, including staff, patient, and asset tracking; patient self check-in kiosks; waiting room displays; and more.

EIOBoard Becomes Savance Workplace


On October 1st, 2022, Savance officially launched its new name for EIOBoard, Savance Workplace. For years, we have struggled with an identity problem as the software originally started as an Electronic In Out Board, hence, EIOBoard. However, as the product organically matured, many more solutions and use cases became solutions of their own. Savance Workplace was created to encompass the full product suite, empowering organizations to account for people for various purposes such as communications, visibility, accountability, safety, and security. Linked with the launch of the new brand also came a new logo.
