RICHMOND, BC and WOODSTOCK, VT--(Marketwire - Jun 20, 2012) - Sage North America, a leading provider of business management software and services to more than 6 million small and midsized businesses worldwide, today announced that it has named a solution from Manufacturing Information Systems (MISys, Inc.) as its first fully endorsed product for Sage Simply Accounting (becoming Sage 50 Accounting -- Canadian Edition in October 2012). This partnership offers customers a new integrated solution, Sage Simply Accounting Manufacturing by MISys, which offers additional specialized manufacturing functionality that integrates seamlessly with Sage Simply Accounting.
