Savance was established in 1998 to provide network and software solutions that automate business processes. We started with the idea that technology could be used effectively to save businesses time and money and make our lives easier. In 1999, we started our software solutions with a product we now call OrderSavant that functions as an ERP business application ( and browser-based storefront too ) for quoting, ordering, document imaging, bar coding, and inventory management. Since 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. About a year later, while being forced to use another company's badly devised electronic in out board, we became motivated to write our own electronic in out status board software. We had designed software for the enterprise 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, our EIOBoard software was born! Our 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 our valued EIOBoard community.
