Welcome to the new Micro Business Systems website!

Welcome to our website, and thank you for visiting.

If you visited our website prior to June 2011, you’ve noticed a big change. We used to have a lot of information posted about the products we support, and not much else. That was really helpful to anyone who knew exactly what “product” they were looking for. Well, in our line of work, people don’t go shopping for “products” unless they want to waste a lot of time and money.  Most people search the web for answers to their problems. I know I do. Sometimes I need to know how to do something with what I already have, like get the ball-point ink out of my husband’s shirt. And sometimes I’m looking for a system to solve or prevent a problem, like an emergency notification service for my mother who lives by herself.  In the latter case, I know I’ll need to buy a service, but I don’t know which one, and I’m not educated in this area, so I hope to find a person who can give me the straight scoop on what’s available.

So keeping in mind a principle that is dear to me, “do unto others as you would have done unto you”, we have completely changed the focus of our website to help you find answers. We’re still going to have information about products.  But we will talk more about issues and solutions. We will explore issues of business management, government compliance, technical problems, and daily operations, all with a primary objective of providing an answer or solution. This is how we work every day with the clients we serve, and our website is finally coming in line with our business practice.

I am passionate about my business, which I view as a vehicle to help improve the quality of the lives of people, and by extension, their businesses. I welcome your thoughts and suggestions. Thank you for being here.


Successful Migration from Old, Unsupported, Accounting System While Maintaining Existing Workflow

The Problem:

Premier Carrier had been using an antiquated accounting system, which the software developer actually discontinued and stopped supporting. “We had been able to continue using the system since then because the data entry piece worked well enough, however, finding entries to edit has always been cumbersome and time-consuming,” stated Donna Goliti, with Premier Carrier, Inc.

The company knew it was just a matter of time before their old system wouldn’t support their needs any longer, so the search started for a replacement. Their primary objective was to find a system that would be supported while making the accounting functions easier, faster, and more reliable.

Premier Carrier talked to several software vendors, but none had a solution that worked the way the company needed to work. The systems would require Premier Carrier to change and adapt to those systems, and they all seemed cumbersome with no option for customization. This changed however, when they talked to Karen O’Lane at Micro Business Systems about Sage MAS 90.

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.
