Cons

The ability to change reports although it is probably myself at fault.

Pros

It's straightforward to use and the vendor support is very good

Cons

The manufacturing and sales orders should post directly to the GL upon completion.

Advice to Others

Demos were very helpful. this is a very good manufacturing software. Still needs improvement to increase a speed of accounting reporting.

Pros

This product has everything you could possibly need in the fabrication business. The people at MIE Trak are so responsive and helpful when you need them.

Cons

Vendor Nothing/ Product like everything can't be everything for everybody but I will say if there is something that you don't like they will work with you to find a solution.

D & B Precision Products used the original MieTrak system for approximately 9 years to include an upgrade to the new and improved PRO system.  It has now become an integral part of our daily processes.

Pros

Without this product, we would be lost – the modules assist us from the beginning stages of quoting through completion.  We are able to obtain valuable reports at our fingertips as well as provide traceability for all jobs.  We also like the responsiveness with technical help through the help desk tickets.

Cons

Initial training program. As beginners, we felt that being placed in a classroom with experienced users gave us a disadvantage. We were to come back and teach others how to navigate the system and felt that we were unable to do so competently. Improvement with the training program would be helpful; know the experience level of the attendees to group classes accordingly.

Advice to Others

This program offers more than what you might initially observe; spend ample time to understand how this system can be modified to your specifications.

For the past 15 years, I have relied on this software to offer greater flow and added process control to the production floor. I have been impressed with the continuous effort and progression of it by its creators. I have seen this change the identity of the production environment first hand for three separate manufacturers.

Pros

Innovative. The product is geared specifically to and for manufacturers.

Cons

All software comes with hang-ups in transitions. However, Mie Solutions sorts it out working in close communication with their customers.

Advice to Others

 This is cost effective software. Virtually everything you need is included. There are few needed add-ons and additional customization.

Recol Ltd implemented MIE ERP in March 2013. The transfer and initiation was floorless and the team based in the UK were and are always fantastic. Having processed mapped the organisation before and after implementing MIE ERP we have achieved at least 50% improvement in efficiencies at the front end of our business. Due to the ongoing success with the ERP we made a further investment into MIE Kiosk last year to underpin our organisational activities and goals.

Advice to Others

If you truly desire to implement a full ERP and operate in a manufacturing environment then MIE ERP is in my opinion the very best product on the market.

We purchased this software about 3 years ago. It is very robust and the service is top notch.

Pros

Three things stand out: Flexibility, Product Evolution, and Service. Not every shop is not the same and MIE Solutions understands that. We have a large customer that has some very unique and complicated billing requirements. MIE Trak Pro is flexible enough to accommodate this non-standard application of its product. Secondly, they are always working to improve their product. They produce quarterly updates that almost always have some new features that are a benefit to our company. And last, but certainly not least is their service. When I place a ticket with customer support they are always handled quickly and thoroughly.

Cons

They could use some improvement on the documentation available on their customer portal. Some of it is outdated and some just don’t go into enough detail to be helpful to experienced users. Fortunately, with their excellent customer service, I am able to open a service ticket and get the information I need.

Advice to Others

Do your homework. Be sure you ask plenty of questions specific to your needs.

I have been using MIE Trak PRO for 2 years and haven't looked back since! It integrates quoting, order processing, workshop tracking and invoicing into a simple fully traceable process. The phone support from MIE is excellent too.

Pros

The interface is intuitive and easy to use. There are regular updates and you can even suggest your own.

Cons

Like all ERP systems it requires a lot of info to get off the ground and is only as good as the info you enter. The quoting process is great but the DXF integration could do with work.

Advice to Others

Take the plunge! Compared to other ERP's on the market MIE Trak Pro required the least modification to suit our business. I was quoted 20 - 30 hours modification time from some other well known brands at considerable cost.

I have used this software for over 10 years, it has the capacity to improve the functioning of the company from quoting right through to invoicing. In the last few years we have changed over to MIE Pro, and the extra business tools this gives has only added to the integration of the software into the business. We would not be able to run the company as efficiently and with the amount of control if we did not have this software.

Pros

Ease of use and the customer support

Cons

Small imperfections between screens

Advice to Others

Excellent software that will improve the functioning of your company from start to finish.

The main reason for our choice was, as an accredited TS16949 Tier 2 Automotive supplier, we had to make sure that any new system provided the traceability and control that this standard requires and MIETrak Pro offers both. MIETrak Pro has given us the ability to take several standalone systems and incorporate them into one making it much easier to share information between employees at all levels. This has enabled us to move to totally live production bookings on the Shop Floor (via Kiosk) and live stock movements (via Barcode Scanner Server). This has improved stock accuracy as problems can be resolved at source and this leads to enhance MRP’s effectiveness. MRP is the main driver for our business and MIE Solutions were open to develop their MRP system to one that I firmly believe is now World Class, not only proposing POs / WOs to meet demand but also suggesting move proposals for existing orders as customer demand changes, either short term or long term.The system is very cost effective, especially when compared to other like for like systems on the market today, but this in no way compromises what MIETrak Pro delivers. The reporting systems are excellent via Quick View Reports and if we’ve been unsure how to create a report MIE Solutions have been more than happy to assist us. Support / training is of a very high standard, quick response, excellent problem solving and very professional. MIETrak Pro has evolved in the time that we’ve been using the system with enhancements, some that we use, some that we don’t, but it’s predominantly our choice and timescale which is very comforting. Whilst Kiyokuni Europe Limited are not a sheet metal manufacturer, MIETrak Pro has seamlessly replaced our old ERP system within our manufacturing environment where we use multi level BOMs and Cellular production units.

Pros

Easy to use and setup. Excellent report functionality with abiltiy to create your own SQL coded reports. Allows and pushes for all business areas to operate within one system

Cons

None that I can honestly think of

Advice to Others

Compare MIETrak Pro against other ERP / MRP systems in the market place. The most expensive isn't always the best !
