This software would be most advantageous for a small to mid-sized business that wanted to run its entire operation from one software package. The very best feature of the product is its price performance ratio. It would be hard to find a package that will bring you more bang for the buck. Among the program’s best features are its wide selection of report generators, automatic pick label generation, cycle counting, serial number and lot traceability, direct to supplier P.O. faxing, theoretical and actual job costing, and sales tracking options. Also, you can place orders against the top level of a product or against lower level BOMS (this is especially useful in a spares environment) pc/MRP also has a new Quickbooks Export module that further extends the use of pc/MRP into QuickBooks Accounting.
The Accounts Payable Module allows you to enter, edit and printout accounts payable vouchers and reports. Since pc/MRP uses receivers as account payable vouchers it is not necessary to use this module for items that are received by receiving. Items that are not received, such as rent, can be entered as an accounts payable voucher. The accounts payable voucher will be assigned the next available receiver number and actually become a receiver record with a “00AP” line item number. If auto accounting is on (in the configuration menu), entering a receiver or accounts payable voucher will automatically make an entry into the general ledger, debiting purchases and crediting accounts payable.
The Accounts Receivable Module allows you to enter, edit and printout accounts receivable vouchers and reports. Since pc/MRP uses invoices as account receivable vouchers it is not necessary to use this module for items that are invoiced. Items that are not invoiced can be entered as an accounts receivable voucher.
pc/MRP’s Address Book Module contains vital customer/vendor information.
The General Ledger Module allows you to enter accounting transactions in the general ledger. Once the transactions have been entered you can edit scroll or print the transactions. You can also print out checks for those transactions either singularly or by batch.
pc/MRP’s Inventory Module contains the costs, price qty breaks, on hand qtys, WIP qtys and other vital information for each part number.
pc/MRP’s Purchasing Module allows users to enter, edit, duplicate and print out purchase orders and reports.
pc/MRP’s Stockroom Module is used to issue parts/sub-assys to sales and work orders and receive back the completed assemblies from manufacturing.
I don’t really understand why the program is not more widespread in use. It is a great value compared to the MRP software sold by others.
Purchasing pc/MRP was one of the best decisions our company has ever have made
I have been a user of PCMRP, since 1993 and a fan ever since. This is my second company using PCMRP. The first company grew to over 100 employees in 4 years, and the current company is 9 years old and 50 employees, but 20 times the number of customers and products.
We use the program as it is…with only a couple of customized reports for data reporting. The product design of PCMRP is so “logical”. Not just whistles and bells, but functional and logical approaches. As the program has evolved over the years, a conservative expansion of features has served our business well. Our ability as a small company(50 employees) has been greatly enhanced due to the simplicity and functional prowess of PCMRP. We would not be where we are as a company, without PCMRP. We sign up yearly for the minimum support levels possible, and never exceed the allotment.
Software has some limitations. Will work for most businesses and QuickBooks can fill in the blanks to give you reports. The price is fantastic.
The cost. It’s a simple MRP for a small company and it can sync with QuickBooks
It does not have an easy to use report writer. The reports are not that sophisticated.
