Does MISys SBM Outshine MISys SAE? Since announcing the integration of MISys SBM with Sage Accpac ERP last summer, we’ve received a flood of inquiries asking if MISys SBM is “better” than our flagship product MISys for Sage Accpac ERP (MISys SAE).

First, let us be clear, for about 20% of our users, MISys SBM is definitely not better, mainly because the shop floor control functions of MISys SAE Level 3 don’t exist in MISys SBM.

On the other hand, the MISys SBM database has been optimized to perform extremely fast MPS/MRP calculations, so a job that took hours in MISys SAE is accomplished in just minutes in MISys SBM. That’s a huge benefit!

Furthermore, MISys SBM displays its purchasing, production, and master schedules in easy-to-understand and manipulate Gantt charts which just can’t be produced in MISys SAE.

Finally, MISys SBM can be a less expensive solution because it does not require multiple (and relatively expensive) Accpac LanPaks for multi-user operation. Instead, MISys SBM uses just one LanPak to gain access to critical information in the Accpac ERP database.

Sleeter Accounting Software Consulting Conference. On November 10th the MISys Guys are headed off to Phoenix to attend the 5th annual Accounting Software Consulting Conference hosted by The Sleeter Group.

Sleeter is best known for its training and consulting for QuickBooks, but this year representatives from Microsoft and Sage Software have been admitted to this popular conference.

Since MISys SBM integrates with all these products (actually, 3 different Sage products!) this is an incredible opportunity to meet with consultants who are building their practices by recommending right-sized business management solutions for their clients.
