Systems Solutions for Manufacturers and Distributors

Miller Cooper provides comprehensive systems solutions for manufacturers and distributors. Our technology group is a cross between a traditional consultancy, a VAR (value-added reseller) and a system integrator. We offer needs analysis and software selection for a wide variety of LAN and client/server based financial systems. We also offer business intelligence tools for small and midsize manufacturers and distributors. Our professionals can help you select solutions to implement scorecards and dashboards so that executives and supervisors can quickly recognize operational exceptions or key performance indicators (KPIs) that fall outside of accepted ranges; identify best-selling products; compare year-to-date sales; and integrate operational, spreadsheet, and historic data for analysis, among other tasks.

Among the services offered are cost segregation studies, energy certifications required by the IRS and R&D studies.
