About Tabs FM Limited

Established in 1992, Tabs FM Limited has grown organically from originally providing a trusted Asset Management and Portable Appliance Testing (P.A.T) service, to what is today a leading provider of advanced Computer Aided Facilities Management (CAFM) systems and other supporting services. The inspiration of TabsCAFM came from a major client who commissioned the development of software system to assist with the management of the day-to-day activities of a challenging Facilities Management department. This was the birth of TabsCAFM software. A product which started life as Asset Management and P.A.T solution, now spans a fantastic array of modules that have each been specifically designed to support the operations Facilities Management departments and that of Services Providers.

The Tabs FM Limited tag line '...more than just software' suggests that strengths are to be found on many levels. One of the many strengths is our willingness to listen and support our clients through collaborative working. Many of the ideas, thoughts and recommendations gained from market research and client discussions, are fed into the central TabsCAFM application that shares its benefits throughout our entire client base. Tabs FM Limited have been working collaboratively with its client base since 1992, culminating in one of the most comprehensive, robust and technically advanced Facilities, Estates and Asset Service Management software solutions in today’s competitive market.

Most of our clients tell us

"TabsCAFM product has great power and scope but is really easy to use." Certainly this is a common theme and a system attribute that is widely appreciated. The power comes from years of market led development. Ease-of-use, consistency and predictability are central to our design principles.

"TabsCAFM is a flexible and versatile system." Flexibility equals strength. Our software is highly configurable and works equally well for "in house" Facilities and Estates Teams as for providers of FM services to multiple clients. Our approach is always client focussed.

All management systems, web portals and mobile solutions are written internally by the Tabs FM team. Not having to rely on third parties gives us the freedom to respond to client demands quickly and with precision.

We plan to grow, embrace new technology and support your client base or organisation in their endeavours to provide the highest possible standard of support and service.
