The MISys guys are visiting with our compatriots at Sage headquarters in Richmond, BC, a suburb of Vancouver. The MISys Manufacturing software integrates seamlessly with two separate Sage products (Sage ERP Accpac and Sage Simply Accounting). The managers of these two products occupy an office building here, so visiting everyone while we were in town for the annual TPAC Conference was a no-brainer.
Our first trip to Vancouver took place way back in 1986 when we first contacted Basic Software Group about integrating with an accounting package that is now Accpac. Simply came along much more recently when smaller manufacturing companies across Canada started contacting us about a right-sized solution for them. Simply enjoys a huge presence in Canada and a great many of their customers are manufacturing companies. Even though their accounting needs are modest (relative to Accpac and other mid-range products) Simply users have the same needs when it comes to advanced production, purchasing, master production scheduling, material requirements planning, and serial/lot tracking. So MISys provides an excellent solution for Simply accounting users. More information about the MISys manufacturing solution for Simply accounting can be found at www.misysinc.com/simply/index.php.
