MISys Manufacturing version 5.0

SplashWhat's New?
Inspiration for many of the new features you will find in MISys Manufacturing v5.0 has come from our many enthusiastic users around the world who have contributed to the MISys Wishlist. Thank you all for your ideas and suggestions.

We have also worked closely with our accounting software partners Sage and Intuit to better understand the needs of their customers. We thank them for making enhancements to their products so that the MISys/QuickBooks, MISys/Peachtree, MISys/Accpac, and MISys/Simply software can function as an industrial-strength manufacturing business management system.

"The most substantial update to MISys Manufacturing in 2 years."

More than 70 enhancements and 25 features added. See the highlights below and watch the video demos to see the new features come to life.

Features Mobile Alerts Module
Mobile Alerts Screen Shots

This new module allows MISys to send critical alerts to smart phones or any mobile device capable of receiving wireless email messages.

The MISys Dashboard has been enhanced so that you can schedule alerts to run unattended 24/7 and, should such an alert be triggered, send a message with critical data to your iPod Touch, smart phone, or to any other mobile device.

Features Bar Coding Module & API
Bar Coding

The Bar Coding module has been completely redesigned and updated with support for the Worth Data 7000 Series RF Terminals. This device permits untethered collection of bar coded data. Note that support for the original Worth Tricoder is retained.

For third-party developers who wish to integrate custom bar code solutions into MISys Manufacturing an Application Programmers Interface (API) is now available.

Features My Menu Panel

As a result of considerable feedback from users about ways to make MISys Manufacturing more "user friendly" we have created a new My Menu panel with two important features.

Navigation Panel Options - MISys Manufacturing v5.0 will feel much more "user friendly" if you hide the navigation panels you'll never need to access. Tune MISys to fit your particular job function. Your settings will be saved from session to session on a user to user basis.

Edit Shortcuts - If you have certain functions that you use more frequently than others, simplify your user experience with MISys by creating a list of shortcuts. You can even create folders and subfolders if they help you access MISys quicker and more easily.

Features Getting Started Guide

We heard from many brand new users who told us they needed a step-by-step guide to help them get started with MISys Manufacturing.

Now, when you log into MISys 5.0 for the very first time, a comprehensive Getting Started Guide appears featuring links to the MISys functions you need to work on, step-by-step.

Features Action Maps
Action Maps

Version 5.0 incorporates a major new feature, which we are calling Action Maps, to greatly simplify using MISys Manufacturing to do common tasks. Action Maps provide access to common tasks for Physical Inventory, Purchasing, Production, and Planning in the form of a live visual flow chart with arrows showing the usual steps for the Action in the order they are normally done.

Each Action Map step is represented by an icon, and each icon has an associated help button where you can click to find out more information about the step. Clicking on the step icon navigates you to the user interface in MISys where you can perform that step. Some of the Action Maps include multiple flow charts representing different scenarios of use depending on your own manufacturing application.
