Therefore, I fully agree that the goods satisfy the requirements of my order as placed.

I will not claim a refund or remedy and I accept full responsibility should the goods be damaged due to misuse, abuse, or gross negligence on my part. I also accept that these foregoing factors will vitiate my warrantee and/ or guarantee.

I do however accept that should the goods have a defect, failure or hazard, I will immediately inform SABRE PRODUCTS (PTY) LTD and promptly claim my refund/remedy/repairs. Pertaining to the fact that SABRE PRODUCTS (PTY) LTD has provided warnings and safety instructions in advance, I accept that when handling the goods, I must comply with these instructions.

New goods and / or installations are guaranteed according to the Manufacturer’s product specific warranties where applicable, failing which the Warranty Period to repair/replace any defective or damaged goods supplied is 6 Months (in accordance with the provisions of the Consumer Protection Act 68 of 2008). This does not apply to ordinary wear and tear.

Sabre software provided is on an annual license use only, I have the option to take up unlimited remote support on the software, however should I not take up the software assurance cover offered, I will be liable for any remote and/or on-site support required at my own cost on an ad-hoc basis.

Software training is also optional and should support be required due to lack of knowledge of how to use the system, I fully understand that there will be costs for any training supplied, regardless if on-site or remote.

Sabre software pricing model

The software pricing is based on a Distributor / Reseller / Retail model which covers the following:

One off registration costs

  • initial once off registration of each software seat
  • initial once off registration of each device onto the database
  • initial cost for each module required, full time and attendance, payroll, leave management, job costing, BioPC, additional management seats, export to any payroll, loans management, parade module, real-time data collection, License plate integration, RF-ID integration, Cloud integration, remote door opening integration.

Annual Licensing Costs

  • Licencing fees for use of seats (each database), includes all upgrades and updates to the software over this period.
  • Licensing for the FREE2USE version (Basic access and/or time and attendance) is obviously FREE, and the PAY2USE licensing is based on the FULL version and a 50% discount is offered on the FULL access control and lite time and attendance version. This is made clearer in the price list.
    • Resellers can make money off licensing so long as the license is registered in their company name, and they bill their client for this service directly.

Annual Support costs (optional)*

  • Unlimited remote desktop support, were a Sabre expert can take over your screen remotely. (client needs to be online)
  • An option for an on-site support and/or training contract.
  • Should a client request an off-site support contract, this is an annual fee either paid in advance, or can be combined with the annual licensing fee and paid over 12 equal instalments, interest free.

    It is important for clients to understand that should they not take up the unlimited remote desktop support offer for off-site support that should Sabre work on any software related issues, specifically for that client, that this service is billable regardless off bug fixes or database repairs. The only time bug fixes are repaired for free are when our complete client base have a similar issue. Alternatively, the client can wait until the said bug is resolved once it is added to our development queuing system.

Ad-Hoc Support costs*

  • Remote desktop support as required, were a Sabre expert can take over your screen remotely. (client needs to be online) – A cost per support call
  • On-site support and/or training is provided – A call out fee plus Sabre hourly rate fee will be applicable.

Onsite support

Sabre staff members are available to be called to site to:

  1. Carry out installations or repairs which are part of an existing agreement
  2. Carry out installations or repairs which are outside any existing agreement
  3. Offer expertise on Sabre or other hardware or equipment as indicated by the client

An official order number for such visit must be supplied. As well as the responsible person for the client who is allowed to make a request and his/her capacity as must be given.

Call Out Fees

Call out fees are not related to time spent onsite however do cover the following:
See software registration for pricing. Representation in Pinetown (H/O), East London, Benoni, and many other sub-contractors around South Africa, also in Botswana, Malawi and many other countries.

  • 100 KM return trip, meaning client is within a 50KM radius of a Sabre office
  • Travel time to and from the client
  • Toll fees to and from the client
  • Any additional time required due to traffic congestion on the roads, or road works.

Additional distance travelled is bill at an extra rate per KM.

Sabre Labour rates

  • An hourly rate or part thereof applies - see software registration for pricing
  • All prices exclude vat and are payable by the client within 7 days of such call out
  • Sabre reserves the right to disable any services of any client who does not adhere to Sabre’s policies.

Before working on client’s computer

  • It is imperative that before any Sabre technician works on any client’s computer, a full backup of the client’s database is captured and simultaneously uploaded into the Sabre cloud backup services unless any such database be found to be already corrupt or become corrupt during a support session. Repairs to corrupt databases are time consuming and not always possible immediately, especially if there are no backups being executed by the client.  In some cases, it is necessary for the technician to re-build a new database in order to recover what data can be recovered from the original database in order to solve the problem.

Database corruption

  • Standard supports rates will apply for attending to and addressing database corruption, in which case the client must be quoted an approximate figure so as to approve such quote before the repair takes place; the alternative remedy would be for the technician to install a new/fresh database and setup which would again need the client’s approval and therefore accordingly also attract a charge.

Hardware support costs

  • All biometric hardware is supplied with a 12 month carry in factory warrantee with an option to have an extend warrantee to either 24 or a max of 36 months – cost per device, per annum is based on 20% extra in the cost per annum paid in advance. Please contact our sales department if interested.
  • On-site repair / replace insurance is available at an extra cost – look further on in this agreement for costing.

On-site Support contract agreement option

Should a client request an on-site support contract, then Sabre offers a discounted rate for a 12-month minimal period agreement. For each hour of support required on-site Sabre will charge a discounted rate of 50% on the standard rates, this with a min monthly charge of 4 hours support per month, plus a 50% discount on each call out fees.

*Reseller benefits from support

Resellers do not make any money from Sabre labour services and are charged full rates for any time used by Sabre staff.

Resellers are welcome to add on and charge what they wish should they sub-contact Sabre for services.

Should a reseller want to make money for any support and/or training they are welcome to come for free basic support and/or training or can put their name down for the next available training courses available on request.
