Manufacturing companies of small and medium sizes are the target user base of MISys Manufacturing, a full software solution that provides production planning and scheduling tools for optimal purchasing and building operations. The end goal of the software is to lower the necessary inventory investment of its users, improve order fulfillment and quality, and introduce better controls for costs.
Available as a best-of-breed application, MISys also supports integration with common accounting packages, such as Sage Accpac, QuickBooks, Peachtree, and Simply Accounting. The system is comprised of modules that can be added on an as-needed basis, starting with basic manufacturing as a core component. Additional modules include advanced purchasing, advanced production, material requirements planning, shop floor controls, and modules for tracking serial and lots, bins, and labor.
MISys has been serving manufacturers for over a quarter century, cultivating close relationships with other developers such as Intuit and Sage. MISys software products are currently sold in 48 countries, with over 7,000 customers across the globe. MISys is based in Woodstock, Vermont. MISys received a performance and usability rating of 9.3 out of ten from Intuit in 2010, going on to later win the “Sleeter Group Awesome Add-On” award as well.
MISys Manufacturing leverages Microsoft .NET technology, and is built on Microsoft SQL Express (included with the purchase of the system). The system’s interface is constructed to leverage users’ existing familiarity with commonly-used email and word processing applications.
