Kree Works

Service Management

Move your equipment maintenance into one simple agreement.

The best choice for service saving’s

Kree Works specializes in service programs that deliver a cost-effective alternative’s to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) service contracts.  Kree can consolidate your current vendor maintenance contracts under one  program, helping to eliminate the high costs and inefficiencies of multiple vendor service contracts while maintaining your control over who services the equipment used in your facility.

A more cost-effective maintenance program

Healthcare, Research and higher education facilities rely upon many types of high-tech equipment for the day-to-day operations of the facility. You cannot afford to lose revenue due to poor or improperly scheduled maintenance. Similarly, you should not have to pay for services you do not need. By grouping multiple equipment service contracts into one agreement, you can schedule the preventive and corrective maintenance your equipment needs and also experience significant savings through lower monthly costs, improved cash flow and overall operational efficiencies.

Many advantages compared to a traditional OEM and ISO service contract’s

  • Cash flow is improved with approximately 15%-30% savings over many OEM service contracts.
  • Kree Works has available a network of qualified vendors that provide service/parts at significantly reduced rates compared to those charged by the OEM, should you need them.
  • The program provides coverage for both preventive and corrective maintenance.
  • The program can help cap your maintenance budget with a guaranteed savings amount.
