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 Some of it is outdated and some just don’t go into enough detail to be helpful to experienced users.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 !

We’ve used this product since 1999 and have found it to be easy to use & straightforward especially when it comes to quoting.

Pros

Easy to use software. The vendor is very hands-on with support. Support does not cost an arm and a leg.

Cons

Software “evolves” over time.

Advice to Others

Evaluate cost of and ease of back-end support vs. initial cost of software to establish the true cost of ownership. Is it easy to find staff who know the software?

As a custom sheet metal fabricator, finding that job shop software that fits your companies needs is important. We came across Mie Trak 32, years ago, and within the past couple of years we integrated to the Mie Trak Pro software.
Mie Trak Pro software easy to use, from quoting to invoicing; it offers real time viewing/updating, tracking orders, job costing, reports and a quality system. The ease of requesting support is a click away and the Mie Trak support team members are phenomenal. They are there when you need them. Once you submit a support ticket, a team member contacts you quickly.

Pros

Easy to use software. A support team that is available when you need them.

Cons

Software training documents could be more detailed. I think with any software update, there are always bugs/glitches, it would be nice to have an update free of bugs/glitches. The training module could be more user friendly; unable to edit areas to build them to your needs.

Advice to Others

Find software that fits your company. Look beyond what it can offer, is customizing available? I suggest you get a support package,as with any software, having easy access to a support team is essential.

We started using Mietrack since 1995 when it was called Fabritrack. It took us a short time to learn and use this software. It has lots of features and it has customizable reports, which we took advantage of.

Pros

What I like best about the software is the ease of use and similarity between modules. The customizable reports do have it's advantages and if something is missing on a report or you have problems at anytime the support team at mie-solutions are there to help.

Cons

I can't think of anything major.

Advice to Others

Make sure everyone who will be using the software has somewhat of a list of their needs.

We are in the process of implementing MieTrak PRO. My experience has mainly been with the setup of the product. The support team have been helpful and patient. During training and setup I found that MieTrak PRO does everything that MieTrak 32 does and even more!

Pros

The product is ideal for job shops, it’s well thought out, full of useful features with almost no need for customization. The team at Mie-Solutions know their product and are quick to respond.

Cons

Tough question… I would have to say, that for us, it’s the scheduling module only because we tend to schedule groups of parts and not unique parts.

Advice to Others

I recommend a demo. Prepare a list of questions and a list of wanted features. I’m certain that MieTrak Pro will fulfill your needs. Very high value relative to the cost.

Ask for a demo similar to your situation, number of part numbers, size of bill of materials, size of your shop, number of machines, etc.

Mie Trak Pro has made the quote process go so much smoother. I liked the ease of writing the formulas for calculating run times/costing. The flow from quote to router to work order is great. The Mie Kiosk software we use on the shop floor allows for a quick, simple 'look' at where everything is on the shop floor and processes are still needed for completion.

Pros

The flow between quote, sales order, work order and router! This portion of the system is very easy to work with. I really like that this system is the whole package. I hope to be using the accounting, human resources, time clock management and purchase order features in the near future.

Cons

Our company has not even begun to use this software package to it's full potential. Our initial start up and training should have been better, however that is our fault as we should have budgeted for the training up front.

Advice to Others

Budget for enough training time to get your system set up tailored to your business practices and make sure at least 2-3 people are comfortable moving around inside the system and able to train others. Take advantage of the customized reporting and work through these reports during your training.

After a year-long search we stumbled upon MIE Trak. We found it perfect for our application. Since it was designed around sheet metal fabrication (our industry), MIE Trak has all the functionality that we wanted. For us, it is a perfect balance that offers all the flexibility we want without being so complex that we are overwhelmed. Their support staff was wonderful on getting our data migrated into MIE Trak and initial report customization setup. The ongoing support ticket system also works very well. We are called back in a reasonable time and the solutions to our problems (often of our own creation) are usually quick. I find MIE Trak to be quite powerful and intuitive and it has enabled us to have better control over our operation. We found a system that will help us operate the way WE want to as opposed to having to change the way we operate to fit the functionality of a computer system.

Pros

The entire package. Great system with great support

Cons

Can’t think of anything

Advice to Others

I hear horror stories about other companies support and service. I would suggest you look hard to make sure the functionality of the software fits your needs but every bit as critical is the way the software is supported and updated.
