Imitation the Sincerest Form of Flattery
We recently visited one of our competitor's web-site and found substantial differences in their look and feel since we had last visited -- all changes that served to mimic the MISys look and feel, even down to the use of a very familiar gear-like logo we've all come to know and love. Terms had been changed to sound more like MISys as well. What remains missing are such staples of manufacturing as WIP, Master Production Schedule-based MRP, Shop Floor Control and much much much more. If you really want a MISys "lite" we recommend the real thing -- MISys Basic Mfg with Purchasing -- you'd still get WIP, and you can add Shop Floor and MRP when the time is right!
