MISys Readies MISys SBM Version 3.0. As we write, the MISys engineers are putting the final touches on the latest version of MISys Small Business Manufacturing which they expect to release before the week is out. Every existing user of MISys SBM will receive the upgrade to version 3.0 free of charge.
One of the major features of this new release is its seamless integration with three Sage products: Simply Accounting, Peachtree Accounting, and Accpac ERP. There are four points of integration between MISys SBM and these popular accounting products:
1) Sales Orders are read and used to plan purchasing and production activities.
2) Finished goods can be transferred back and forth between the manufacturing inventory and the distribution inventory as needed.
3) Invoicing of Purchase Orders created in MISys SBM produces the appropriate entries in Accounts Payable.
4) Journal entries resulting from stock transfers, purchasing, and production activities are transferred to the General Ledger.
MISys SBM Advanced Production. There are just a couple of seats left for the MISys SBM Advanced Production workshop which begins Thursday (September 25) at 1:00 Eastern time. To learn everything you need to know the capabilities of Manufacturing Orders in MISys SBM, there still may be time to register online if you hurry.
Month-to-month Priority Support. Blame the full moon, but last week we received two requests from users who wanted to purchase a Priority Support contract for just a few months. "I don't need support for a whole year, just for a few months while I get familiar with the product" wrote one user. Perhaps we don't promote it as well as we should, but Priority Support on a month-to-month basis has been available for several years. The good part is that you can purchase support for just a month or two, then drop it whenever you feel confident to go on your own. For more information about this valuable service, contact MISys Customer Support at 802/457-4600.
MISys SAE User Group Meeting. This week's MISys SAE User Group Meeting will convene on-line this Thursday at 1:30pm Eastern. There is no charge for this meeting, but you must pre-register by contacting MISys Customer Service at 802/457-4600 for the required password.
