MISys Manufacturing Software Provides Best Practices Support for Patio Furniture Manufacturer
A sturdy architecture for best practices saves small businesses time and money.
Woodstock, VT (3/6/2014) - By the Yard is a Minnesota-based manufacturer of maintenance-free outdoor patio furniture and accessories. As a burgeoning company, By the Yard was rapidly outgrowing the Excel spreadsheets they initially relied on to track manufacturing processes. According to By the Yard General Manager, Quint Thocher, “We run a full manufacturing process so things can get out of hand quickly if we can’t track inventory, etc.”
In 2009, By the Yard purchased MISys Manufacturing software. Since then, Quint has found that “MISys supports best practices in a way that most MRP systems do not.” Because many MRP systems are customizable, smaller companies often alter the system software to mimic their own processes. MISys accommodates the needs of smaller manufacturers while providing a structure that encourages best practices. “Most small businesses do not start out with best practices,” says Quint, “so this is a valuable feature.”
Quint reports that, aside from its support of best practices, MISys Manufacturing software has helped By the Yard gain greater control over their inventory, streamline their manufacturing operations, and develop more accurate and flexible reports. With more effective organizational tools, By the Yard saves time and money, which they can use to grow their business.
