PLEASANTON, California – June 10, 2008 – The Sleeter Group and Manufacturing Information Systems Inc. (MISys) announced today that they have formed an alliance intended to increase MISys’s penetration into the small- to medium-sized accounting software market, where right-sized manufacturing solutions are in high demand.
The new relationship enhances the existing business partner programs of both organizations by bringing existing MISys Business Partners who sell MISys Small Business Manufacturing (MISys SBM) into The Sleeter Group Consultant’s Network (SGCN). The nationwide network includes over 600 accounting firms and business software consultants with expertise in QuickBooks financial software and other products, will operate as a Value Added Reseller channel for MISys to handle sales, installation, integration, and business process consulting for MISys clients.
“MISys SBM is a great fit for small- to medium-sized companies who need real MRP capabilities fully integrated with the strong accounting of QuickBooks,” said Doug Sleeter, founder of The Sleeter Group. “We currently have strong solutions which add to the QuickBooks inventory management functionality, and with MISys we now have a complete small business manufacturing system to offer.”
MISys SBM is an add-on manufacturing software product that extends QuickBooks into a full strength manufacturing system. Companies using QuickBooks can add MISys SBM to their existing system without having to change their accounting program. “Our Sleeter consultants see a huge demand from QuickBooks customers who want a fully integrated industrial-strength manufacturing system at an affordable price that fits with their existing QuickBooks accounting,” Sleeter added. MISys SBM is a 2008 winner of The Sleeter Group’s coveted “Awesome Add-on” award.
“The partnership with The Sleeter Group and MISys is a perfect fit for QuickBooks consultants and for us,” said Dave Brown, President of MISys. “The consultants now have the best of both worlds and can offer a very robust manufacturing system for QuickBooks without the high cost of similar systems in the mid-market. The Sleeter Group Consultants Network provides us with a highly skilled professional network of individuals who work directly with our target small business market, and offer tremendous value-added consulting and support services to our mutual customers.”
The Sleeter Group (www.sleeter.com) provides QuickBooks training resources to QuickBooks users and consultants, and operates a nationwide network of accounting and business software consultants. The Sleeter Group’s resources include college textbooks, consultants' reference books, a QuickBooks Consultant Certification program, a QuickBooks Consultant Membership network, annual selection of QuickBooks “Awesome Add-On” awards, Value Added Reseller program opportunities, and an annual Accounting Software Consulting conference.
