QuickBooks Enterprise Suite Version 10 has some basic manufacturing assembly capabilities, many manufacturers find that they need more advanced inventory, purchasing and manufacturing planning capabilities than what QuickBooks Manufacturing offers. One of the best solutions out there for extending QuickBooks for Planning and Manufacturing is MiSYS Small Business Manufacturing Software. Here are some of the key reasons why MiSYS might make sense for you: Flexible and easy to use MRP. Using MiSYS MRP, you can consider the sales orders and inventory quantity on hand in QB during it's recommendations without having to rekey that data into MiSYS. MiSYS MRP also lets you use inventory forecasts during Material Planning before generating MRP so it can consider actual and planned demand. When MRP makes 'buy' or 'make' recommendations you can control what quantity MRP will recommend based on: - 'Never' means never automatically recommend to build this item meaning you control the planning for this item - 'Zero' means build enough to meet current demand. - 'Minimum' means build enough to maintain the minimum quantity on hand defined for this item. - 'Reorder' means build enough to reach the reorder qty defined for this item Link Sales Orders to Mfg. Orders: If you are a make to order environment you can link Manufacturing orders to a QB sales order during the MRP run for manufacturing. The quantity produced will then be transferred to QB and automatically fulfill this sales order. Raw Material Consumption: MiSYS gives you the choice when it comes to raw material consumption on a BOM. Raw materials can either be consumed per planned quantity of the parent or by actual quantity of parent produced. Costing Choices: MiSYS supports Average, Standard, LIFO and FIFO costs, while QBES only supports Average Cost. Add/Change Components: Manufacturing orders give you the flexibility to make one-time changes to what is being manufactured whether it is raw material quantities or adding additional raw materials. Scrap Transactions: You can also record scrap transactions against manufacturing orders to more accurately reflect what materials and quantities were actually consumed during the manufacturing process. Download a FREE trial Version and try it for yourself. You can either use the demo data included with the trial version, or you may create your own company with up to 100 inventory items. MiSYS offers free online demonstrations, and excellent training sessions to get you started. And as experts with MiSYS Manufacturing software, Attivo can help you complete your implementation and provide the local consulting and support that you need.
