MISys Manufacturing software offers all the functionality a small to medium-sized QuickBooks manufacturing firm needs today.
When "good enough" isn't good enough, you need better. Get started with Basic Manufacturing and experience how MISys Manufacturing software delivers on its promise to turn your QuickBooks desktop accounting software into an industrial-strength manufacturing system.
Here are the top 10 reasons why manufacturers add MISys Manufacturing software:
- Track inventory in work-in-process (WIP). Other systems help you maintain an inventory. MISys is designed to help you maintain NO inventory. Like other inventory systems, MISys can tell you what you have in stock and where its located. For MISys Manufacturing customers, that's simply not enough. Our customers enjoy a typical savings of 25% in inventory and associated carrying costs (like insurance, floor space, physical management, etc.) because MISys has the ability to order only what you need, when you need it.
- Link multiple suppliers to a single inventory item. Establish preferred vendors, volume purchase discounts.
- Explode multi-level bills of material.
- Track BOM revisions.
- Track job costs for manufacturing jobs.
- Use Standard Costing for inventory.
- Schedule production effectively to meet customer deadlines.
- Use time-phased MRP to buy only what is needed, WHEN it is needed.
- Track production on the shop floor.
10. Keep the accounting software you know and like, add the manufacturing software you need.
Use QuickBooks to manage the "front of the house", everything that is customer-facing: customer records, sales orders, sales inventory, accounts receivable, accounts payable, general ledger, etc... Use MISys Manufacturing software to manage the "back of the house," everything related to manufacturing: bills of material, raw material inventory, production scheduling, purchasing, etc. MISys maintains a subledger of all of the manufacturing costs and syncs with the QuickBooks ledger. The transactions are fully auditable and are done automatically - no double data entry is required.
