Quick and Easy to Learn

While the functionality of MISys SBM may be familiar to some, its underlying technology is brand new. Manufacturing Information Systems, Inc. has combined the latest Microsoft .NET technology with our 20+ years of manufacturing experience to deliver a system that gives users quick access to the information they need, when they need it, wherever they are located. MISys SBM’s familiar Microsoft Office look and feel means your staff won’t have to develop a whole new set of navigation skills. Anyone who knows their way around the most popular email or word-processing programs will quickly feel at home with MISys Small Business Manufacturing.

Built-in Power and Scalability

For maximum performance and scalability, MISys SBM is built on the industry-standard Microsoft SQL database engine, a 5-user version of which is included in the purchase price. For larger firms, MISys SBM supports hundreds of concurrent users on Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and other ANSI-compliant SQL databases.

Stand-Alone or Fully Integrated

MISys SBM can be run stand-alone, or integrated with many of the most popular accounting software systems to form a complete manufacturing business management system. Your CFO will smile when your company financials accurately reflect your manufacturing activities.

Critical Data at Your Fingertips

Using a unique system of alerts, you’ll configure MISys SBM to notify you when certain conditions are met or events occur within your manufacturing system. Gone is the risk of not having the information you need to take immediate corrective actions. Scores of standard reports, and the ability to add your own custom reports, put at your fingertips the information you need to run your manufacturing operation more efficiently than ever before.

Low Total Cost of Ownership

MISys SBM is one of the most affordable manufacturing software systems available, not just because of its low purchase price, but because the unexpected expenses that can escalate the total cost of owning software have been eliminated in the design. With MISys SBM there are no surprises, no obsolescence; total cost of ownership is never a gamble.
