Farm Equipment Manufacturer Uses MISys to Track Costs and Manage Profits

Agpro® Inc. gains insight into true costs and profitability by using MISys Manufacturing with QuickBooks

Woodstock, VT – 10/25/2013. Agpro® Inc. has been manufacturing waste management equipment for commercial farming facilities since 1962. They purchased MISys Manufacturing in 2007 when they realized their QuickBooks program was generating profit and loss statements based on average pricing rather than actual cost.

agpro“Before using QuickBooks, we used a spreadsheet for our inventory,” says Agpro® Inc. purchasing manager Larry Cox. “We had to go into the spreadsheet and add items individually. It was a complicated process for determining what was purchased. When we started using QuickBooks, we found that their program wasn’t providing an accurate cost for our products. QuickBooks was not doing what we needed in order to get a true cost for our profit and loss statements.”

MISys Manufacturing provided Agpro® Inc. the extra power they needed without adding to the complexity of their bookkeeping system.

By seamlessly integrating with Agpro® Inc.’s existing QuickBooks software, MISys made it easy for even the newest employees to use the system without causing irreversible damage to the accounting system. According to Cox, MISys enables Agpro® Inc. to generate more accurate manufacturing cost reports and simpler inventory reports. More accurate profit and loss statements offer a clear picture of manufacturing costs so that Agpro® Inc. can manage their inventory and maximize their profits.
