In The News:

MISys Posts Record Sales in 2008. The management of MISys, Inc. is pleased to announce record sales in our previous fiscal year which closed on December 31, 2008. In his remarks to the shareholders, Dave Brown, President and CEO commented "In light of the tight economy, I think it is a testament to our terrific products and our incredibly hard-working staff that our revenue didn't just stay flat (which would have made me happy, considering the economic conditions) but it actually grew significantly compared to last year. By providing solutions which can help manufacturing companies worldwide operate more efficiently and more profitably, we are well-positioned to produce even better results this year and in the future, despite the global recession.

Sage Insights Pre-conference Training. The MISys Business Partner Support Team has been working hard to create a valuable pre-conference training workshop just prior to the Sage Insights Conference in May. Arrangements are being finalized with the Radisson Hotel at Opryland in Nashville for a 2-day workshop packed full of information about MISys SBM, our MS.Net-based manufacturing solution for Sage Accpac ERP and Sage Peachtree Accounting.The question the Radisson asked (but we aren't quite ready to answer) is "how big a room do you need?"
So please help us out. If you are a MISys Business Partner and you want to reserve a seat at the MISys Pre-conference Training Workshop on May 10 and 11, please email Scott Beavers, MISys Channel Manager, with the number of seats you would like to reserve. We need your response by the end of this week (January 30). No commitment or payment is required at this time -- we just need to give the hotel a reasonable estimate of our space requirements. Thanks for your cooperation!Purchase MISys SAE From Accpac. Business Partners are reminded that they can get Tier Credits by purchasing MISys SAE directly from Accpac.

For example, MISys SAE now appears on the Sage Accpac website as the manufacturing solution of choice for Sage Accpac ERP.

In related news, MISys is working with product managers at Sage Simply Accounting and Sage Peachtree Accounting to educate their staff and channel partners about our manufacturing solution. MISys Small Business Manufacturing (MISys SBM) integrates seamlessly with Simply and Peachtree and turns them into industrial-strength manufacturing solutions.

Brand New Fact Sheets Published. No one wants prospective users of Simply or Peachtree (or even Accpac ERP) to wander off to competing products because of their misapprehension that strong manufacturing is not the suit of these accounting products. New fact sheets are now available describing the points of integration with these three Sage products:
Simply Accounting

Peachtree Accounting
Accpac ERP
