Successful ERP Implementation: MiiR

Access to good data helps grow the business in a powerful way

MiiR … we’d love to carry your beverage.

MiiR is a manufacturer of stainless-steel drinkware. In order to understand MiiR, you need to see what motivates the business. A Product to Project™ company committed to trackable giving, MiiR gives 3% of revenue to partner organizations with an aim to provide people with access to clean water and a better future. This mission of giving back has helped fuel the company’s growth over the past 9 years being routed in the competitive stainless still drinkware industry. Wanting to be a truly connected and digital business, MiiR chose Acumatica for its mobility, automation, dashboards, flexibility and ease of third-party integrations.

Bryan Papé, MiiR Founder and CEO shares some insights. ”Our technological journey has been a bit crazy and I imagine most startups go through this. We’ve been happy to land on Acumatica. It’s robust, it’s flexible, it’s simple but it also has an API so as you need to connect into it, there’s an ability for that as well. “

Many companies get their start using Inuit’s QuickBooks for their financials. But there came a time when QuickBooks was just not enough for MiiR. If you’re ready to take the next step, see what Acumatica has to offer.

As any growing company ultimately finds, using QuickBooks has limitations and that leads to a search for a new solution. While QuickBooks may appear to offer users a good starter accounting package at a reasonable price, it is only designed to handle basic accounting. Managing business processes outside of financials requires an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution. Your growing firm needs to count on your ERP solution to handle accounting and financial management needs along with other business requirements, such as manufacturing, distribution and more.
