Pros

1)Your team's commitment to providing the tools and support necessary for our successful implementation, Mie Trak has an excellent support team in place. 2) For our use in manufacturing the Automatic and coherent workflow from one department/function to another, ensures a smooth transition and quicker completion of processes. This also ensures that all the inter-departmental activities are properly tracked.

Cons

"Myself : Creating custom Forms and Reports, difficulty finding the appropriate fields for data needed -- Field name in database is sometime different the field title that shows in module which can be tricky trying to find. Note: There are a couple of Modules we are not using:
a. Invoices: ( we use QuickBooks)
b. Quality Control: ( we have purchased -Unit-Point - integrated with MieTrak - our Quality Director can answer specifics regarding this if needed.
c. CRM ( we have purchased our CRM Sales pipeline - which is integrated into outlook)

Incredibly powerful management and organizational tool. Our company couldn't be this far along without it. Very fair and competitive out of the box and strong annual maintenance. Customer service is very helpful and quickly responds to the challenges our customer relationships offer as we work to accommodate out of ordinary requests. We can't afford not to have it.

Pros

The simplicity and its flexibility. The vendor is very helpful and has invested a lot of resources to technical support, especially in the last three years.

Cons

There isn't a good set of instructions that comes with the software. If you like a big instruction manual, you will be disappointed. When I bought the software in 2002, it was a much bigger challenge. Today, they have software training you can choose to attend, plenty of experienced technical support staff, online publication and video files to reference and live teamviewer sessions to deliver understanding about how to use the software. We grew with Mie-Solutions in the last 15 years and they are a much stronger organization now.

I have found this to be a good system. I appear to do what we need for our business. I will say that we do not use all the modules that are provided. I feel it is underused by us

Pros

The customer support is quick to solve my issues (which are few and far between) ad my request for report modification

Cons

Having an easier interface with the database would be nice. The "Report Writer" is a little cumbersome for me. It may be due to my lack of database programming

We have been working with MIE trak for 20 years and upgraded to Pro version in 2015.

Pros

Reporting and ease of going from module to module. Vendor is very responsive to issues and finding a resolution.

Cons

Very slow response with certain features. Could be due to the large amount of data in our files. Need to continue conversation with support on how we we can make the scheduler and MRP to work with our low volume/ high mix orders.

Our company uses both Kiosk and Track in our daily operations. We use Trak in order to purchase, produce manufacturing and sales orders, invoicing and metric reporting. Our company is ISO 9001:2015 certified and using MIE Trak to help us meet our quality objectives and requirements is vital to our success.

Pros

I like the support and flexibility of the product. MIE allows for the ability to be nimble, flexible and quick. Having these characteristics enables us to customize reports or WOs, invoices or whatever anyway we need.

Cons

Sometimes the flexibility of MIE can get away from you if the proper controls are not in place, so in this case one of the key strengths of MIE can also be a downside if left without controls.

I have been using Mie Trak Pro and Kiosk for about two years. We switched from quickbooks. I have a background with other ERP systems, but none are as easy to use as Mietrak. Mietrak has taken the guessing out of our business. We know right away if we are profitable on products or not. We know how our actuals compared to our quotes. There is far more to this package than we use. We are learning new functionality.

Pros

I like the ease of use. Mietrak is integrated very well into the windows environment. Many ERP systems do a poor job of this. Windows popping up over windows. The workflow for Mietrak is very well thought out and helps the user experience. As for the Vendor, I find them very helpful regardless of the complexity of the questions.

Cons

Location. Sometimes if I have an early morning question the time zone differences can delay responses.

We had been with a competitor to MIE Solutions for almost 20 years. In that time the entire feel of the software never changed. Time moved on but the capabilities only varied slightly. They did not have wireless or touch screen support and had no desire to help us with those issues. We started shopping around and quickly found MIE Solutions. It only took one meeting to see that MIE Trak Pro was the system we had been waiting for. We had a few initial concerns about integration from our previous software and implementation with some of our processes. MIE Solutions assured us they would take care of our every need. They did not fall short on their promise. It took several months to completely work out the bugs from transferring our database and learn all the new ways of running the software, not a day goes by that we regret the change.

Pros

They will bend over backward to make sure the system runs in a manner that will improve your ERP experience and flow with your company. They do not just drop you once you have gotten up and going.

Cons

Most of our concerns have been taken care of, either with updates or communication. They work hard to make sure you don't have any complaints.

I implemented this software for the company that I work for and I couldn't have asked for a better support team. Every question get answered quickly and politely. They are open to any and all suggestions and willing to change what they can to make it more user-friendly for everyone that uses it.

Pros

The best part about having this product is the support that comes with it. We get our questions answered quickly.

Cons

There are still a few bugs within the system which should get ironed out.

Advice to Others

This is the only only MRP ERP software that I have used so I can't draw comparisons.

We have been using MIEtrak for over 20 years and we are still finding new ways to utilize the software in our business. The product has streamlined quoting and job tracking. We can give our customers quotes in minutes or an instant response when they need progress reports. It has also made us able to find old project info within minutes, even jobs from 15 years ago. We utilize the product in our Sales, Billing, Engineering, Shipping and Accounting offices. It ties in all aspects of our business and has helped us become the place we are today.

Pros

Very knowledgeable staff. They always can solve our problems and answer questions.

Cons

We are in Michigan and they are in California. This time difference has caused us to have some increased time waiting for support. Although, recently we have been noticing them getting back to us much sooner with help.

Advice to Others

I think anyone evaluating this product will quickly see it offers everything other software offers at a very competitive price.

MIE Trak has enabled us to take make a huge growth transition in our business. We are an agile, design-based manufacturing company, and always found it too difficult and time-consuming to put processes around what we did on a day to day basis. We persevered with a fragmented and inconsistent collection of spreadsheets for far too long. Now, working through MIE Trak right from the quoting stage, all information is captured from sales intent right through to manufacturing then delivery, giving our people a consistent framework to work within.

Pros

Simplicity and ease of use.

Cons

The distance between us and the vendor has sometimes made it difficult in terms of support and we have had to work things out ourselves. Local support for the product would be much better.

Advice to Others

Don't be overwhelmed by the size of the task. Break it down into small chunks and don't aim to use all modules from day 1.
