Pros: MIE Solutions has been absolutely awesome with regards to Support and Development. If we have a question about the system we typically receive a phone call Within a few hours of submitting the ticket. MIE Solutions has definitely gone above and beyond to satisfy our needs and have been extremely patient with all of our questions and training needs. MIE Solutions is the epitome of making sure the customer¿s needs are met.

Cons: We love MIE Trak Pro and everyone that we have interacted with, however if I had to list a dislike, it would be that their Support team is all based in California and the time difference can cause a delay in hearing back regarding Support issues/fixes, etc.

Comments: Great value, I spent a lot of time researching the various options out there, and this still is the best value product I've found.

Pros: Great integration between various modules; transitioning from quote to sales order to work order to invoicing is very smooth. Customer support is great, usually same day - at least within 24 hours. If a change in the system can help you use the system more efficiently, they will consider it for the next update and try to make it happen. You can pick and choose which modules you use and it integrates well with Quickbooks.

Cons: It is somewhat difficult to train team members, especially those who aren't as experienced with computers and databases. Some features don't work as well if you have higher volume production runs, and if your materials are slit coil material or wire, but this can be worked around.

It has proven to be a good ERP system that which gives all the information you need to run your bus

Comments: I have been using Mie Trak Pro for almost 3 years and it has been really useful for keeping track of all the information required to quote and process jobs. Mie Trak is a big program and I probably only use a portion of its full potential. Once trained on how to use the program I can make it work to suit our companies needs. My only complaint is the fact that its not super intuitive. Anytime I have a questions customer support is great and always quick with a response. I would recommend Mie Trak especially to production oriented shops.

Pros: The reports and information gained through the use of this system is time-saving and all encompassing.

Cons: I wish I knew how to use every single aspect of this system BUT if I don't know how to use something, there are a wealth of training documents and videos readily available at my fingertips.

Overall: I couldn't imagine our company functioning without this software. It is such an integral part of our whole business from quoting, setting up orders, creating POs, inventory, quality control, human resources, accounting and so much more. The customer support is top notch and so prompt!!!

Recommendations to other buyers: I would like to see a training class for the more intermediate functionality...

Comments: We looked at a lock of products before choosing Mie Trak Pro. All the products are very similar, but Mie Trak was a much better cost. The support is great. They go above and beyond for their customers.

Pros: Easy to keep track of projects and costs. We looked at a lot of products before choosing Mie Trak Pro. All the products are very similar, but Mie Trak was a much better price. Great customer service. They go above and beyond for their customers.

Cons: The system requires you to both: Save and Paste. This seems redundant. Sometimes the program is a little slow.

Comments: -

Pros: 1)Your team's commitment to providing the tools and support necessary for our successful implementation, Mie Trak has an excellent support team in place. 2) For our use in manufacturing the Automatic and coherent workflow from one department/function to another, ensures a smooth transition and quicker completion of processes. This also ensures that all the inter-departmental activities are properly tracked.

Cons: "Myself : Creating custom Forms and Reports, difficulty finding the appropriate fields for data needed -- Field name in database is sometime different the field title that shows in module which can be tricky trying to find. Note: There are a couple of Modules we are not using: a. Invoices: ( we use QuickBooks) b. Quality Control: ( we have purchased -Unit-Point - integrated with MieTrak - our Quality Director can answer specifics regarding this if needed. c. CRM ( we have purchased our CRM Sales pipeline - which is integrated into outlook)

Comments: Incredibly powerful management and organizational tool. Our company couldn't be this far along without it. Very fair and competitive out of the box and strong annual maintenance. Customer service is very helpful and quickly responds to the challenges our customer relationships offer as we work to accommodate out of ordinary requests. We can't afford not to have it.

Pros: The simplicity and its flexibility. The vendor is very helpful and has invested a lot of resources to technical support, especially in the last three years.

Cons: There isn't a good set of instructions that comes with the software. If you like a big instruction manual, you will be disappointed. When I bought the software in 2002, it was a much bigger challenge. Today, they have software training you can choose to attend, plenty of experienced technical support staff, online publication and video files to reference and live teamviewer sessions to deliver understanding about how to use the software. We grew with Mie-Solutions in the last 15 years and they are a much stronger organization now.

Cons: Having an easier interface with the database would be nice. The "Report Writer" is a little cumbersome for me. It may be due to my lack of database programming

Comments: We have been working with MIE trak for 20 years and upgraded to Pro version in 2015.

Pros: Reporting and ease of going from module to module. Vendor is very responsive to issues and finding a resolution.

Cons: Very slow response with certain features. Could be due to the large amount of data in our files. Need to continue conversation with support on how we we can make the scheduler and MRP to work with our low volume/ high mix orders.

Comments: Our company uses both Kiosk and Track in our daily operations. We use Trak in order to purchase, produce manufacturing and sales orders, invoicing and metric reporting. Our company is ISO 9001:2015 certified and using MIE Trak to help us meet our quality objectives and requirements is vital to our success.

Pros: I like the support and flexibility of the product. MIE allows for the ability to be nimble, flexible and quick. Having these characteristics enables us to customize reports or WOs, invoices or whatever anyway we need.

Cons: Sometimes the flexibility of MIE can get away from you if the proper controls are not in place, so in this case one of the key strengths of MIE can also be a downside if left without controls.

Comments: I have been using Mie Trak Pro and Kiosk for about two years. We switched from quickbooks. I have a background with other ERP systems, but none are as easy to use as Mietrak. Mietrak has taken the guessing out of our business. We know right away if we are profitable on products or not. We know how our actuals compared to our quotes. There is far more to this package than we use. We are learning new functionality.

Pros: I like the ease of use. Mietrak is integrated very well into the windows environment. Many ERP systems do a poor job of this. Windows popping up over windows. The workflow for Mietrak is very well thought out and helps the user experience. As for the Vendor, I find them very helpful regardless of the complexity of the questions.

Cons: Location. Sometimes if I have an early morning question the time zone differences can delay responses.

Comments: We had been with a competitor to MIE Solutions for almost 20 years. In that time the entire feel of the software never changed. Time moved on but the capabilities only varied slightly. They did not have wireless or touch screen support and had no desire to help us with those issues. We started shopping around and quickly found MIE Solutions. It only took one meeting to see that MIE Trak Pro was the system we had been waiting for. We had a few initial concerns about integration from our previous software and implementation with some of our processes. MIE Solutions assured us they would take care of our every need. They did not fall short on their promise. It took several months to completely work out the bugs from transferring our database and learn all the new ways of running the software, not a day goes by that we regret the change.

Pros: They will bend over backward to make sure the system runs in a manner that will improve your ERP experience and flow with your company. They do not just drop you once you have gotten up and going.

Cons: Most of our concerns have been taken care of, either with updates or communication. They work hard to make sure you don't have any complaints.

Comments: We have been using MIEtrak for over 20 years and we are still finding new ways to utilize the software in our business. The product has streamlined quoting and job tracking. We can give our customers quotes in minutes or an instant response when they need progress reports. It has also made us able to find old project info within minutes, even jobs from 15 years ago. We utilize the product in our Sales, Billing, Engineering, Shipping and Accounting offices. It ties in all aspects of our business and has helped us become the place we are today.

Pros: Very knowledgeable staff. They always can solve our problems and answer questions.

Cons: We are in Michigan and they are in California. This time difference has caused us to have some increased time waiting for support. Although, recently we have been noticing them getting back to us much sooner with help.

Recommendations to other buyers: I think anyone evaluating this product will quickly see it offers everything other software offers at a very competitive price.

Comments: MIE Trak has enabled us to take make a huge growth transition in our business. We are an agile, design-based manufacturing company, and always found it too difficult and time-consuming to put processes around what we did on a day to day basis. We persevered with a fragmented and inconsistent collection of spreadsheets for far too long. Now, working through MIE Trak right from the quoting stage, all information is captured from sales intent right through to manufacturing then delivery, giving our people a consistent framework to work within.

Pros: Simplicity and ease of use.

Cons: The distance between us and the vendor has sometimes made it difficult in terms of support and we have had to work things out ourselves. Local support for the product would be much better.

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't be overwhelmed by the size of the task. Break it down into small chunks and don't aim to use all modules from day 1.

Comments: Weldflow is a sheet metal is a contract manufacturing facility in Ontario, Canada. We are a small company and was not sure of ERP software available for sheet metal environment. It has been a very intuitive experience with this software as it caters for almost all nuances of our operation.

Pros: We are using MIETrak version 11 and has it with us for last 4 years. The product has the flexibility to use different modules. Though the software has accounting capabilities and interfaces with Quickbooks, however, we only link it to download our vendors and customers and chart of accounts.The vendor has a very responsive technical support system and whenever there has been issues or items that we do not understand there has been technical support available to resolve an issue on hand for that time.

Recommendations to other buyers: I can only speak based on our size and environment. In this regard, I will certainly recommend facilities like us as this software removes any barriers of having certain threshold and size to be able to use such application software.

Comments: I find it easy to use if you have any experience with accounting and or quoting. I like the fact that you can quote multiple quantities and follow it all the way through sales orders, work orders, and be invoicing.

Pros: It does it all except payroll. It is easy to search for previous purchases, SO, and a number of sales to any customer. You can add any type of notes to the work orders, IE: DFAR Compliant Mat'l only; weld per spec d1.1; etc. Support is great, they will answer or get an answer to any questions you may have.

Cons: Could use better instructions when first setting up the software.

Recommendations to other buyers: This will only work if you can get your estimators to quote correctly, completely. You need to have employees willing to put in the time to set up the jobs correctly for everything to pull through to the work orders.

Comments: Back in 1996 we reviewed 3 different MRP systems and chose MIE Trak (FabriTrak back then) and now know we made the right decision. Since 1996, I would estimate we have had a 99.9% uptime.The system is intuitive and easy to train others to use.

Pros: From quoting to shipping products, MieTrak is the most complete MRP package we have ever used. It does it all! The support is top notch and will not stop until you are completely satisfied.

Cons: The report writing is not for the beginner. The cost for the annual support is quite high for a small business but manageable. The scheduling module does not provide enough information to be able to schedule jobs efficiently.

Recommendations to other buyers: MIE Trak is a complete turnkey system for any manufacturing business. It provides a fast efficient way to run your business and provides management with the right tools to make decisions which will enhance any manufacturing company.

Comments: We first started using MIE Trak in December 2000. Since the product was designed by someone in the sheet metal fabrication industry we found it to be very logical and not a radical departure from what we were already doing with our own software. The software helped streamline our front office operation so that we were able to grow our sales without adding staff. The shop floor became more efficient and customer service had real-time information available to them when communicating with customers. Support for their product is just as good as the product itself.

Pros: The stability of the software, the tech support and the willingness to customize the product to our own ideas and needs.

Cons: Nothing to dislike.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are in the precision metal fabrication business this product will address most of your needs. Any needs that are not addressed they will customize for you.

Comments: For the past 15 years, I have relied on this software to offer greater flow and added process control to the production floor. I have been impressed with the continuous effort and progression of it by its creators. I have seen this change the identity of the production environment first hand for three separate manufacturers.

Pros: Innovative. The product is geared specifically to and for manufacturers.

Cons: All software comes with hang-ups in transitions. However, Mie Solutions sorts it out working in close communication with their customers.

Recommendations to other buyers:  This is cost effective software. Virtually everything you need is included. There are few needed add-ons and additional customization.

Comments: Recol Ltd implemented MIE ERP in March 2013. The transfer and initiation was floorless and the team based in the UK were and are always fantastic. Having processed mapped the organisation before and after implementing MIE ERP we have achieved at least 50% improvement in efficiencies at the front end of our business. Due to the ongoing success with the ERP we made a further investment into MIE Kiosk last year to underpin our organisational activities and goals.

Pros: Simple and user friendly / Complete traceability from RFQ to Invoice / Excellent customer service / MIE ERP as all of the functionality of other large ERP providers but the Manufacturing module is by far and way the strongest we have seen and used / The cost to purchase the system seemed to good to be true.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you truly desire to implement a full ERP and operate in a manufacturing environment then MIE ERP is in my opinion the very best product on the market.

Comments: We purchased this software about 3 years ago. It is very robust and the service is top notch.

Pros: Three things stand out: Flexibility, Product Evolution, and Service. Not every shop is not the same and MIE Solutions understands that. We have a large customer that has some very unique and complicated billing requirements. MIE Trak Pro is flexible enough to accommodate this non-standard application of its product. Secondly, they are always working to improve their product. They produce quarterly updates that almost always have some new features that are a benefit to our company. And last, but certainly not least is their service. When I place a ticket with customer support they are always handled quickly and thoroughly.

Cons: They could use some improvement on the documentation available on their customer portal. Some of it is outdated and some just don¿t go into enough detail to be helpful to experienced users. Fortunately, with their excellent customer service, I am able to open a service ticket and get the information I need.

Recommendations to other buyers: Do your homework. Be sure you ask plenty of questions specific to your needs.

Comments: I have been using MIE Trak PRO for 2 years and haven't looked back since! It integrates quoting, order processing, workshop tracking and invoicing into a simple fully traceable process. The phone support from MIE is excellent too.

Pros: The interface is intuitive and easy to use. There are regular updates and you can even suggest your own.

Cons: Like all ERP systems it requires a lot of info to get off the ground and is only as good as the info you enter. The quoting process is great but the DXF integration could do with work.

Recommendations to other buyers: Take the plunge! Compared to other ERP's on the market MIE Trak Pro required the least modification to suit our business. I was quoted 20 - 30 hours modification time from some other well known brands at considerable cost.

Comments: I have used this software for over 10 years, it has the capacity to improve the functioning of the company from quoting right through to invoicing. In the last few years we have changed over to MIE Pro, and the extra business tools this gives has only added to the integration of the software into the business. We would not be able to run the company as efficiently and with the amount of control if we did not have this software.

Pros: Ease of use and the customer support

Cons: Small imperfections between screens

Recommendations to other buyers: Excellent software that will improve the functioning of your company from start to finish.

Comments: The main reason for our choice was, as an accredited TS16949 Tier 2 Automotive supplier, we had to make sure that any new system provided the traceability and control that this standard requires and MIETrak Pro offers both. MIETrak Pro has given us the ability to take several standalone systems and incorporate them into one making it much easier to share information between employees at all levels. This has enabled us to move to totally live production bookings on the Shop Floor (via Kiosk) and live stock movements (via Barcode Scanner Server). This has improved stock accuracy as problems can be resolved at source and this leads to enhance MRP¿s effectiveness. MRP is the main driver for our business and MIE Solutions were open to develop their MRP system to one that I firmly believe is now World Class, not only proposing POs / WOs to meet demand but also suggesting move proposals for existing orders as customer demand changes, either short term or long term.The system is very cost effective, especially when compared to other like for like systems on the market today, but this in no way compromises what MIETrak Pro delivers. The reporting systems are excellent via Quick View Reports and if we¿ve been unsure how to create a report MIE Solutions have been more than happy to assist us. Support / training is of a very high standard, quick response, excellent problem solving and very professional. MIETrak Pro has evolved in the time that we¿ve been using the system with enhancements, some that we use, some that we don¿t, but it¿s predominantly our choice and timescale which is very comforting. Whilst Kiyokuni Europe Limited are not a sheet metal manufacturer, MIETrak Pro has seamlessly replaced our old ERP system within our manufacturing environment where we use multi level BOMs and Cellular production units.

Pros: Easy to use and setup. Excellent report functionality with abiltiy to create your own SQL coded reports. Allows and pushes for all business areas to operate within one system

Cons: None that I can honestly think of

Recommendations to other buyers: Compare MIETrak Pro against other ERP / MRP systems in the market place. The most expensive isn't always the best !

Comments: As a custom sheet metal fabricator, finding that job shop software that fits your companies needs is important. We came across Mie Trak 32, years ago, and within the past couple of years we integrated to the Mie Trak Pro software. Mie Trak Pro software easy to use, from quoting to invoicing; it offers real time viewing/updating, tracking orders, job costing, reports and a quality system. The ease of requesting support is a click away and the Mie Trak support team members are phenomenal. They are there when you need them. Once you submit a support ticket, a team member contacts you quickly.

Pros: Easy to use software. A support team that is available when you need them.

Cons: Software training documents could be more detailed. I think with any software update, there are always bugs/glitches, it would be nice to have an update free of bugs/glitches. The training module could be more user friendly; unable to edit areas to build them to your needs.

Recommendations to other buyers: Find software that fits your company. Look beyond what it can offer, is customizing available? I suggest you get a support package,as with any software, having easy access to a support team is essential.

Cons: I can't think of anything major.

Cons: Tough question¿ I would have to say, that for us, it¿s the scheduling module only because we tend to schedule groups of parts and not unique parts.

Comments: Mie Trak Pro has made the quote process go so much smoother. I liked the ease of writing the formulas for calculating run times/costing. The flow from quote to router to work order is great. The Mie Kiosk software we use on the shop floor allows for a quick, simple 'look' at where everything is on the shop floor and processes are still needed for completion.

Pros: The flow between quote, sales order, work order and router! This portion of the system is very easy to work with. I really like that this system is the whole package. I hope to be using the accounting, human resources, time clock management and purchase order features in the near future.

Cons: Our company has not even begun to use this software package to it's full potential. Our initial start up and training should have been better, however that is our fault as we should have budgeted for the training up front.

Recommendations to other buyers: Budget for enough training time to get your system set up tailored to your business practices and make sure at least 2-3 people are comfortable moving around inside the system and able to train others. Take advantage of the customized reporting and work through these reports during your training.

Comments: After a year-long search we stumbled upon MIE Trak. We found it perfect for our application. Since it was designed around sheet metal fabrication (our industry), MIE Trak has all the functionality that we wanted. For us, it is a perfect balance that offers all the flexibility we want without being so complex that we are overwhelmed. Their support staff was wonderful on getting our data migrated into MIE Trak and initial report customization setup. The ongoing support ticket system also works very well. We are called back in a reasonable time and the solutions to our problems (often of our own creation) are usually quick. I find MIE Trak to be quite powerful and intuitive and it has enabled us to have better control over our operation. We found a system that will help us operate the way WE want to as opposed to having to change the way we operate to fit the functionality of a computer system.

Pros: The entire package. Great system with great support

Cons: Can¿t think of anything

Recommendations to other buyers: I hear horror stories about other companies support and service. I would suggest you look hard to make sure the functionality of the software fits your needs but every bit as critical is the way the software is supported and updated.

Comments: We have been utilizing MIE Track Pro for many many years. This product does everything from start to finish, beginning with our quotes, tracking jobs, job costing to billing. It's functionality is surpassed by none.

Pros: This product is easy to use and whenever we might have an issue, the vendor is always there to help us quickly and efficiently.

Cons: Like any software, there's a learning curve.

Recommendations to other buyers: During the evaluation process, you'll notice the ease of use compared to the complexity of the software running in the background. The exchange of data between modules behind the scenes is global and shared between each department in real time, therefore, updating simultaneously.

Comments: We have been using the Pro product for over 4 years now and it has exceeded our expectations throughout the initial learning curve to present. Their support team has been extremely accommodating to our requests for feature additions or tweaks. There are a ton of features in this product and takes time to get through and learn them all. We have been very happy with how customizable the product is. It has really helped streamline our business.

Pros: How customizable it is. Their support team has been very accommodating in implementing requested changes or feature additions. Anytime we have any questions on how something supposed to work or if something was feasible we would get a timely response. You get great personalized service with this company which is rare. The software has made a huge difference in streamlining our internal processes making us more efficient.

Cons: Sometimes so may new things are added it takes a while to notice them or figure them out. Not a lot of documentation so once the basics are learned you have to submit tickets to get answers answered.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure you are comparing apples to apples when evaluating. We noticed other packages looked cheaper initially but once you added in the extra modules or custom programming they weren¿t even close. You would be hard pressed finding another company as responsive as Mie-Solutions. They have a top-notch team and it shows in their product.

Comments: We have been using MieTrak ERP software for many years. In 2015 we upgraded to the MieTrak Pro software which completely revamped the user interface and backing software. The software allows our company to keep every aspect of the business integrated into one unified place. The primary benefit that we get out of the software is that it is adaptable. We work with MieSolutions support to integrate new features that we want to see. This type of support you typically do not get with other ERP/MRP software developers without having to purchase packages or consultations.

Pros: Fantastic support from the MieSolutions staff. Holistic, not fragmented. Buy a seat get access to all of the features. Easy user interface, not overly complicated. High level of company integration. Highly adaptable/flexible.

Cons: Software favors smaller assemblies but still functions for our 100+ component designs. No perfect training documents as the flexibility means each user is utilizing the software differently.

Pros: The experience with Mie Trak Pro has been very positive. It has a great amount of functionality than many other ERP softwares cant do. Well built for sheet metal fabricators. We like their ability to respond to issues and customizations

Cons: Lack of sound documentation when setting up for the first time.

Recommendations to other buyers: Pay for MIE Solutions to be onsite at least a week initially and then come back again for a week to help further with implementation with your team. Dedicate one employee to be your full-time administrator for at least 4-6 months during the start-up/transition phase and have no other duties.

Pros: One word sums up the reason that we use and love MIE Trak PRO and MIE Solutions, FLEXIBILITY. This vendor is willing to help us configure their software to work the way we do instead of making us change our process to work the way the software does. In addition, the support we get from MIE Solutions is first class. They are very responsive to our support requests and don't make us wait for the next major release to provide a small modification we need now. The price of MIE Trak PRO is very fair for the powerful features it provides and the annual support charge is a good value for all of the time that MIE Solutions staff spends to make the product work better for us.

Cons: The main problem we have with MIE Trak PRO and MIE Solutions is a result of what we like most about them. Their flexibility and responsiveness in modifying the software makes it difficult for them to keep training materials and documentation current. We have also seen that occasionally updates can have unexpected results, but in each of those cases, support has worked with us to resolve the problem quickly.

Recommendations to other buyers: When comparing manufacturing software, look beyond the features that the application has now. No software application will do everything you need right out of the box. You need to find a vendor that will work with you to squeeze every ounce of productivity from of that software. In our opinion, that company is MIE Solutions. Also consider the support you will depend on. The President of MIE Solutions once called me back late on a Saturday night from a baseball game he was attending with his kids to help me with a difficult problem I was having. That is not a usual occurrence, but I challenge you to find a company President that is more dedicated to his product than David Ferguson.

Pros: MIE Trak Pro is very flexible. They seem to listen to their customers and make changes accordingly and their support is very good.

Cons: The documentation on how to use the software could use some work.

Recommendations to other buyers: Look at the cost of implementation, ease of implementation, find a software they don't have to work through second parties with such as consultants.

Pros: One of the biggest things is not what it does for you, it's the by-products of what is done as a result. By product is more than you imagine you needed. Those surprises is what brings MIE Trak Pro to the top. It goes so much more in depth than you can imagine and that is the key to it. Huge amount of information is gathered without having to think about it and reporting features are top notch. Reporting is one of my favorite things about MIE Trak Pro

Cons: They won't let me run it from a beach from Florida. In honestly I was able to run MIE Trak from out of the office 6 hours away, and i'm able to see quotes and machines in use.

Recommendations to other buyers: This software is so industry driven that it's difficult to find another software to compare it to. You can find other softwares that may be able to convert themselves to what MIE Trak Pro specializes in. It's like trying to change a horse in a cow. There are so many things that gear into our industry that ERP products like SAP, needs a lot of customization and at a cost to what MIE Trak Pro specializes in. So user-friendly for the industry.

Pros: The product initially had a number of incompatibility issues with our industry however over the past year especially the MIE Solutions Team has worked with us to increase the effectiveness of the system. Our rep has been an excellent resource for our organization as he understands our industry and requirements.

Cons: The incompatibility issues we experienced. The initial implementation support. Our organization did not have a good implementation plan and required more guidance from the ERP solutions vendor.

Recommendations to other buyers: Ensure you have a good implementation plan. Ensure you understand your processes and requirements and are willing to re-evaluate your processes to match a good ERP system.

Cons: When doing new builds there always seems to be issues. Even though they are dealt with when they arise, we would like an error free build each time.

Recommendations to other buyers: Check out all aspects of the system, including reporting. The system had many other functions we were unaware of, that we found out through using the system.

Pros: The willingness to help make their product fit the needs of their customers. We are able to use to product for all aspects of our business from Accounting, Sales, Manufacturing to AS9100 level Quality Management.

Cons: The only thing I think that could use improvement would be the documentation and training. More involved explanations of new builds and the changes that occur and how they may affect users. Better training videos with more detailed explanations of all fields and how they interact with one another and where they information is being pulled from. The training videos cover the basics but do not go into much detail or cover "special" users who may need to adjust the way they are used.

Recommendations to other buyers: Research thoroughly! A more popular ERP company we were considering, after a few months of discussion, finally revealed that they were unwilling to modify a critical module for us that would have prevented us from being able to use the system. Thankfully we discovered this in time and we found MIE TRAK who were willing and able to make the necessary modifications. Most other larger well known ERP systems are not as helpful.

Pros: Mie Trak PRO is highly customizable and has the ability to grow with your business

Cons: Sometimes there are too many ways to get to the same end result.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure you the software you are evaluating has an avenue for you to give feedback to the developers and request changes. It is important that you as the end user have the ability to make changes to the software to improve its function and ease of use. Not all companies operate the same and its very important that the software works for you and not you for the software.

Pros: 1. support is stellar 2. ease of customization 3. did i mention the support 4. customization. we are able to build our own reports and edit the formats. 5. vesatility (you can make or buy parts- don't need two part numbers.

Cons: We choose to use a different accounting package (due to our structure), so i am not including that portion in the review.

Recommendations to other buyers: Have worked with the big name software, and I have many customers that still use the big boys. Bottom line, the information available from MieTrak is by far superior. If you have ANY variablility in your business, you would be wise to look at this software. If you want to vary from the canned program, spend a bit of time checking out other customers. We have been a customer for 10 years, a couple of the changes we have requested are not possible, and some take a while to impliment, but you will get an answer rapidly. I have never dealt with anyone at Mie Solutions that gave me the impression they were doing just their "job". Every single time they were trying to help me solve my problem. (aka no corporate attitude)

I haven't used this product long and I already like it.

Pros: The product is comprehensive and configurable. We use the product in a manufacturing environment and deal with OEM level customers, so we need a robust IT environment to support the dynamic needs of our customers. It also has a robust integration with QuickBooks that allows you to run their finance package or integrate with QuickBooks for full job costing functionality.

Cons: Because the product is very configurable, there are a number of options that need to be set up. It is not overwhelming, but I wish the baseline reports were more standard out of the box.

Recommendations to other buyers: We looked at a number of other packages like JobBoss, Exact, etc., and the feature set of MIE Trak Pro provided more value.

Comments: Our company has been using MIE solutions for over 12 years. Originally a $5 million a year company, we have increased to over $40 million year in sales and we continue to use MIE Trak PRO effectively in our day-to-day operations. The flexibility of their programming allows our growing sheet metal business the opportunity to create useful software that can be tailored to meet individual programming needs for our customers. We chose MIE Trak PRO primarily because of the availability of their support staff . Their willingness to customize programs and provide new innovative solutions to help us work more effectively has always been their greatest asset. In addition, employees from order entry to machine operators are confident in their usage because of the easy to navigate menus and screens. This product can handle a large volume of users without crashes or slow downs. There are times when as many as 100 or more workers are using the system in various areas and it still runs smoothly. We have never been disappointed in our decision to choose MIE Trak PRO as our business software vendor and solutions partner.

Comments: We're a small manufacturing company that does mostly custom jobs for our clients. In 2011, we decided a job shop software package would be a good fit for our business. We chose MIE Trak Pro because it is known in the industry and handles metal working well. MIE Trak manages custom job manufacturing and integrates the entire job process including quoting, sale orders, work orders, inventory control, purchasing, shipping/invoicing and best of all, job tracking. Another reason we love MIE Trak is the support when you request changes. Not all changes make it into the software, but they do their best and add hundreds features every year. You are able to talk to people that know their software and work at understanding your business. Implementing an ERP system is very rewarding and if you put in the effort, you should be up and functional in just a few months. It can be a difficult task, but with good follow through and effort it can happen in a reasonable amount of time.
