Finding Solutions to Integration Problems

Perez Distributing has been using Micro Business Systems for over ten years now, and I’m very grateful we found them when we did. The company that had provided support for our order-picking and sales management systems went out of business, and it was important to find a company that was qualified to provide solutions to our integration problems.

Micro Business Systems – Trusted Business Partner

Florestone Products has been working with Micro Business Systems since 1992, and that’s because I know that I will not find a more professional, helpful, and honest provider at any price. Everyone at the company is extremely personable, and I feel like we’ve become friends as well as clients. I can trust them to provide me with accurate estimates, skilled service, and thorough technical support (even when the problem is due to my own tinkering).

Saving Time and Money

I want to be completely honest – when Micro Business Systems suggested that we switch to the Paperless Office System, I was nervous. I’m a hands-on person, and I like to be able to riffle through our files as I research questions. It’s second nature for me to grab a stack of paper and pull out the exact sheet that I need, almost without looking. The idea of simply not having paper files concerned me. I was afraid that we wouldn’t be able to find important information easily anymore. Frankly, I was expecting the worst.

Boy, was I ever wrong.

MAS90/200 Tip: Modifying MAS90 Forms

This tip will potentially save you from heartache. MAS90/200 version 4 modules that have forms to print, default to a Form Code called “STANDARD”. As of version 4.30, these modules are AR, AP, SO, and RMA. Examples of forms are Accounts Payable Checks and Sales Order Invoices.

If Crystal is installed on your PC, and you have permissions within MAS that allow you to modify the forms, you could modify the STANDARD form. For instance, you can move the check number, date, and amount to line up better on your printed checks.

Lessons From a Dinner Party

I recently hosted a casual dinner party at my house, and I observed the same behavior from my guests as from many times before, which was that most wanted to help me do “something”. Being a good hostess, I try to have everything prepared ahead of time so that my guests can simply relax and enjoy the food, the wine, and the company. However, no matter how well prepared I am, things come up that need to be done.

Now, sometimes, offers to help are the output of reading Miss Manners Guide to Etiquette, or of being smacked by one’s mother, and the one extending the offer secretly hopes that you will not reply in the affirmative. But most of the time, volunteers genuinely desire to be of use. I have found that accepting assistance makes my guests feel valued and contributes to a greater sense of camaraderie. The “guest experience” is more fulfilling, and I, the hostess, am more roundly feted than if I were to decline all offers. I have turned acquaintances into friends over simple acts of slicing a tomato or setting dishes out on a table.

What do I take from this? When people want to help, let them! It can pay dividends in ways that you can’t even guess.
