Sure Start Program Revamped. The MISys Sure Start Program, which provides startup services to new users of MISys Small Business Manufacturing, has recently been revamped to include technical support options. As before, every MISys SBM user is automatically paired up with their own Sure Start Consultant, a personal implementation manager who will coach them through the process of installing and setting up the software. Under the new program, users will also choose one of three different support plans which will provide easy access to our support technicians once they are up and running on MISys SBM. For more information about the new Sure Start Program and the available options, check the MISys website.

Dateline - WOODSTOCK
Many of our readers are getting excited about the prospects of Winter ending and Spring coming. Even though February brings longer days and warming sun, we don't indulge in even contemplating Spring until well into April. Here in Woodstock, we are deep into Pothole Season, which comes before Mud Season in late March. The cycle of sub-zero temperatures followed by a relatively warm rain yesterday has torn up large chunks of Main Street. There are three holes in front of the Woodstock Bank each able to swallow large dogs. The water-filled pit in front of the Woodstock Hardware Store already has one large truck tire in it -- torn off when Elmer Brashaw hit the hole in his F-150 in the early morning light. You might expect the highway department in your town to dash right out and fix such problems as this. But in Woodstock, our version of the Traffic Report tells us where the potholes are and h! ow to avoid the worst of them. In a few a few weeks, Mud Season will arrive and warming temperatures will cause mud to ooze up through every imaginable orifice, conveniently filling potholes that we not previously filled with miscellaneous auto parts. Because the Woodstock Highway Department knows this cycle and can count on it year after year, they save an average of $1,500 per year on unnecessary repair work. Each year when the Highway Superintendent gives his report to the residents attending Town Meeting, the news that we have saved more than last year on unnecessary highway repair work seems to trump the fact that Elmer Brashaw and others spent a total of $82,350 on repair work and wheel alignment. Fortunately, Town Meeting is always scheduled just before the opening of Maple Sugar Season -- when no one wants to think about sub-zero temperatures, potholes, torn of tires, and bent rims. When Maple Sugar Season comes, we're busy and looking forward to Spring.

K2 Enterprises Endorses MISys SBM. K2 Enterprises, an organization consisting of business consultants and technology evangelists that provides program content to professional accountants throughout the United States and Canada, has recently endorsed MISys Small Business Manufacturing for its 2008 programs.
Randy Johnston, K2's Executive Vice President says "MISys has decades of experience in manufacturing and they bring that to the QuickBooks market with the depth of knowledge, experience and completeness in their product. Integrating MISys SBM into QuickBooks is an excellent value, and solves inventory and manufacturing issues elegantly. This product should cost hundreds if not thousands more than it does, and it should be considered whenever a client has manufacturing operations."
