If you need an Inventory Manager with Multi-Level BOM capability but don't want the bother and associated running costs of an oversized ERP/MRP system then there's a good chance that miniMrp is all the software you're looking for. miniMrp includes purchasing, customer orders, works orders, multi-level bills of material, shortage forecasting and many more MRP-Like features in a small, easy-to-use Inventory Manager.
Take your free trial right now and see for yourself.
miniMRP may look like a small package but that's because it doesn't waste space on rarely used features that nobody uses anyway.
Why maintain an overweight, over-complex ERP/MRP system when all you really want is something that will manage an unlimited number of inventory items and when required, build, manage and cost single and multilevel parts lists and Bill of Material of almost any number of levels or complexity.
What's new in this version:
4.2 is compatible with newer versions of MS Windows and the database can be migrated up to MS SQL Server if required.
If you are a small business that does manufacturing this program is for you. This program will allow you to create customer orders, maintain suppliers, create BOM files, and build for stock. Throw away your spreadsheets and get this program. You can also use in a networking environment. Developer provides very good support and the program has a dedicated support forum.
Lacks granular security in a networking environment. Unable able to connect to Quickbooks. Might appear to have limitations, but the developer usually offers workarounds.
There are all kinds of MRP programs out there and the price range varies greatly. Before investing I suggest that you check out miniMRP. If you are like me and don't need all the bells and whistles of a full blown MRP program then this software might be for you.
it has everything needed for inventory and MOB and purchasing and customer orders. alows to transfer out data or in data with excel (but only with CVS files). easy to use.
i guess it is a bit too simple for some. also work orders and customer orders print out in a format that i don't like. but it is ok because i can transfer it out into an excel template.
i use this program because it fit these requirements i was looking for in an inventory program:
1. easy to use and learn
2. instantly deducts from inventory when assembly is completed
3. allows user to alter the quantity of stock by hand without having to go through purchasing it
5. data is easily transferable into microsoft office.
6. simple. other programs out there do so many things and i had trouble going about in their menus.
