Pros

The product fits our needs better than any I’ve seen and the Vendor does a good job of responding to our needs.

Cons

New builds often cause unforeseen problems. Some smaller “nuisance” issues have not be fixed for several build generations.

Pros

MIE Solutions has been absolutely awesome with regards to Support and Development. If we have a question about the system we typically receive a phone call Within a few hours of submitting the ticket. MIE Solutions has definitely gone above and beyond to satisfy our needs and have been extremely patient with all of our questions and training needs. MIE Solutions is the epitome of making sure the customer’s needs are met.

Cons

We love MIE Trak Pro and everyone that we have interacted with, however if I had to list a dislike, it would be that their Support team is all based in California and the time difference can cause a delay in hearing back regarding Support issues/fixes, etc.

Value for Money

Great value, I spent a lot of time researching the various options out there, and this still is the best value product I've found.

Pros

Great integration between various modules; transitioning from quote to sales order to work order to invoicing is very smooth. Customer support is great, usually same day - at least within 24 hours. If a change in the system can help you use the system more efficiently, they will consider it for the next update and try to make it happen. You can pick and choose which modules you use and it integrates well with Quickbooks.

Cons

It is somewhat difficult to train team members, especially those who aren't as experienced with computers and databases. Some features don't work as well if you have higher volume production runs, and if your materials are slit coil material or wire, but this can be worked around.

We looked at a lock of products before choosing Mie Trak Pro. All the products are very similar, but Mie Trak was a much better cost. The support is great. They go above and beyond for their customers.

Pros

Easy to keep track of projects and costs. We looked at a lot of products before choosing Mie Trak Pro. All the products are very similar, but Mie Trak was a much better price. Great customer service. They go above and beyond for their customers.

Cons

The system requires you to both: Save and Paste. This seems redundant. Sometimes the program is a little slow.

-

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.

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

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.

Functionality

Value for Money

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

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

I have been using Mie Trak Pro for almost 3 years and it has been really useful for keeping track of all the information required to quote and process jobs. Mie Trak is a big program and I probably only use a portion of its full potential. Once trained on how to use the program I can make it work to suit our companies needs. My only complaint is the fact that its not super intuitive. Anytime I have a questions customer support is great and always quick with a response. I would recommend Mie Trak especially to production oriented shops.

I couldn't imagine our company functioning without this software. It is such an integral part of our whole business from quoting, setting up orders, creating POs, inventory, quality control, human resources, accounting and so much more. The customer support is top notch and so prompt!!!

Pros

The reports and information gained through the use of this system is time-saving and all encompassing.

Cons

I wish I knew how to use every single aspect of this system BUT if I don't know how to use something, there are a wealth of training documents and videos readily available at my fingertips.

Advice to Others

I would like to see a training class for the more intermediate functionality...
