Mainsaver Customizing

The following is a very small sample of the EAM Expert Mainsaver Customization projects.  More detail (such as screen prints and implementation) on any of these changes will be furnished upon request.  As you read through this list, ask yourself, have you ever wished you could see a value (such as Work Order information) on a screen when creating a record (such as a Purchase Order) so that you can make a quick and informed decision?  If so, you’re not alone!  That’s how most of these customization were born.  The software should work for you and not the other way around.  You’re success with Mainsaver hinges on usability and minimizing keystrokes.



  • If a master record is deactivated (PM, Asset, Part, Supplier, or Employee) based on a status change, the record will be shaded grey in the table view.


  • When a Craft is “completed” (using the Finish Work feature and unchecking the “Close WO as well”), that Craft Line for the Work Order will stop appearing in Shop Floor. Usefull for multi-craft Work Orders.


  • On the Asset Financial Tab, added a new field showing a new value called TOTAL-ASSET-COST which adds the Life-To-Date Cost with the Asset Cost.
