There is no doubt in our minds that SBM is a great fit for the Quickbooks Enterprise users involved in manufacturing, and we had many demos for many interested parties. We learned as well talking with end-users, Quickbooks Pro Advisors and Intuit staff (sometimes all at once!). I also got to talk with prospects I had already been in touch with over the phone, and it's always a special pleasure to meet potential SBM users face-to-face. We met makers of hurrican shutters (Ocean Shutters), trailers (Best Trailers), skin nutrition (BioSkin), boats (Performance Cruising), pumps (Cortech), aviation oxygen systems (MH), wine (New Mexico Wineries), TV appliances (TV Ears), composites (ICE), furniture (DStyle), fencing (Cedar Rustic) among many others. It was, as I said, a great learning experience to understand what kind of issues each manufacturer struggled with.
I also got to meet Doug Sleeter, a leading voice in the Quickbooks universe, and we demoed the product together. Again, I learned at least as much as he did. We'll see Doug again at the Sleeter conference in Vegas. I'll try my best to keep this blog going, please share your comments and thoughts to let me know my efforts are not in vain. I'd enjoy this 1000 times more if it was a two way dialogue!

And I've got all kinds of links for you. You can get a very quick overview by going to http://www.misyssbm.com/xxx with xxx being the accounting package of your choice. You can put in Quickbooks, SBA, Adagio or Simply, and it will open up a quick streaming video for you.
Now for more depth please go to http://www.misyssbm.com/getsbm
and select Free Streaming Video. As you fill in the information requested, you'll have an opportunity to select a specific accounting package, or select none if you're not sure.
Also, from the same page you can download a Trial Copy of the product. It's the complete SBM with limits on the number of items/BOMs etc. We've placed a $10 fee on the download just to eliminate unserious downloads, but if you contact me first at firstname.lastname@example.org or 802-457-4600 x228 I'll provide you the code needed to download the Trial.
Finally, every Thursday we host an on-line Open House at 3 PM Eastern Standard Time. This is hosted by Dave Brown, company president and a central player in the development of the product. Here is where you can view live product and ask any questions you might have, like show me how to create a BOM revision. And we offer outstanding virtual food, plus very cute anime hostesses. Don't miss it!
We're anxious for the world to see our exciting new product, so don't delay. It's available for your business today!

In the meanwhile, Trial Copies (live product) are available for download, so if you have not yet done so and are interested in seeing this brand new .NET version of MISys, please go to http://www.misyssbm.com/getsbm and either start with the streaming video (a good choice if you haven't seen that yet) or select the Trial Copy.
I've just been asked why we charge $10 for the live product trial, and it's either we expect 10 million downloads and the extra dough would give us a fine month off in the Caribbean, or it's to keep the non-serious downloaders down to zero. I actually like the first reason, but it's the second. Ten bucks buys you a pepperoni and mushroom pizza locally, so it's not a lot, but it does say that a time unlimited trial copy is worth at least that much to someone.
That being said, anyone I personally am working with will get the secret password (it changes daily) since I know your interest is sincere, and the $10 fee is waived. There is also a secret handshake involved but more on that later. Any thoughts on this major issue, please feel free to share in the comments.
A very special option, I think, of MISys SBM is the rental option. For as little as $142 per month one can rent the powerful MISys SBM system. Run it for 3 or 6 months full bore. Make sure it does what we say it can do and you expect it to do. If it does, [and we're betting it does!] you can convert to full ownership and get some major piece (I don't have specifics in front of me yet but it's more than fair) of what you paid in rental applied to the purchase price. It's like insurance except you get your insurance back once you know everything is all right!
Well, feel free to join the discussion.

Effective January 1st, MISys has entered into a partnership with software giant SAP to integrate MISys SBM with SAP Business One accounting.
SAP Business One is a mid-range product which has been gaining traction in
Business One is offered with a simple manufacturing component, but the product has only a single level bill of material and thus no industrial-strength manufacturing capabilities. Presently, FourthShift Edition from Softbrands integrates with Business One, but it is an expensive solution frequently out of reach for many Business One prospects. Therefore SAP is anxious to offer MISys SBM as an optional right-priced manufacturing component.
MISys, Inc. will be presenting MISys SBM at the SAP Partner Conference in
