MIS - New trend in Print industry

Print Mantra has implemented a new management information system which is a single, web-enabled software that integrates the complete range of administrative and printing processes right from estimation to job tracking to invoicing and delivery challans. This system has helped end inefficient, time-wasting processes and let us concentrate on producing high-quality work for our customers. While allowing us to easily respond to last-minute changes, human error, equipment malfunction, and other issues without starting jobs again from scratch. We are also able to keep our inventories low thereby not locking out our resources.

A management information system (MIS) is a system that provides information needed to manage organizations effectively.Management information systems involve three primary resources: technology, information, and people. It's important to recognize that while all three resources are key components when studying management information systems, the most important resource is people. Management information systems are regarded as a subset of the overall internal controls procedures in a business, which cover the application of people, documents, technologies, and procedures used by management accountants to solve business problems such as costing a product, service or a business-wide strategy. Management information systems are distinct from regular information systems in that they are used to analyze other information systems applied in operational activities in the organization.Academically, the term is commonly used to refer to the group of information management methods tied to the automation or support of human decision making, e.g. decision support systems, expert systems, and executive information systems.
Overview
Initially in businesses and other organizations, internal reporting was made manually and only periodically, as a by-product of the accounting system and with some additional statistic(s), and gave limited and delayed information on management performance. Previously, data had to be separated individually by the people as per the requirement and necessity of the organization. Later, data was distinguished from information, and so instead of the collection of mass of data, important and to the point data that is needed by the organization was stored.

Over time, these applications became more complex and began to store increasing amount of information while also interlinking with previously separate information systems. As more and more data was stored and linked man began to analyze this information into further detail, creating entire management reports from the raw, stored data. The term "MIS" arose to describe these kinds of applications, which were developed to provide managers with information about sales, inventories, and other data that would help in managing the enterprise. Today, in Offset printing in Mumbai the term is used broadly in a number of contexts and includes (but is not limited to): decision support systems, resource and people management applications, enterprise resource planning (ERP), enterprise performance management (EPM), supply chain management(SCM), customer relationship management (CRM), project management and database retrieval applications.
In Offset printing in Mumbai "The five eras are general-purpose mainframe and minicomputer computing, personal computers, client/server networks, enterprise computing, and cloud computing."(Management Information Systems: Managing the Digital Firm, 11th Edition. Prentice Hall/CourseSmart, 12/30/2008. p. 164). The first era was ruled by IBM and their mainframe computers, these computers would often take up whole rooms and require teams to run them, IBM supplied the hardware and the software. As technology advanced these computers were able to handle greater capacities and therefore reduce their cost. By 1965 microprocessors began to take the market away from mainframe computers. This technology allowed small desktop computers to do the same work that it previously would have taken a room full of computers. This also decentralized computing power from large data centers to smaller offices. In the late 1970s minicomputer technology gave way to personal computers. Now for a relatively low cost anyone could have a computer in his own home. This allowed for businesses to give their employees access to computing power that 10 years before would have cost tens of thousands of dollars. This proliferation of computers also helped create a need to connect these computers together on a network giving birth to the Internet. As technology has increased and cheapened the need to share information across a large company had also grown, this gave way to the client/server era. With this era computers on a common network were able to access shared information on a server. This allows for large amounts of data to be accessed by thousands and even millions of people simultaneously. The latest evolution of Information Systems is cloud computing a recent development, cloud computing lets users access data stored on a server, where they can not only see the data but also edit, save, download or upload. This along with high speed networks has led to a much more mobile view of MIS. In cloud computing the manager does not have to be at a desk to see what their employees are working on but instead can be on a laptop, tablet pc, or even smartphone.
Offset printing in Mumbai An 'MIS' is a planned system of the collection, processing, storage and dissemination of data in the form of information needed to carry out the management functions. In a way, it is a documented report of the activities that were planned and executed. According to Philip Kotler "A marketing information system consists of people, equipment, and procedures to gather, sort, analyze, evaluate, and distribute needed, timely, and accurate information to marketing decision makers."
The terms MIS Offset printing in Mumbai and information system are often confused. Information systems include systems that are not intended for decision making. The area of study called MIS is sometimes referred to, in a restrictive sense, as information technology management. That area of study should not be confused with computer science. IT service management is a practitioner-focused discipline. MIS has also some differences with ERP which incorporates elements that are not necessarily focused on decision support.
The successful MIS must support a business's Five Year Plan or its equivalent. It must provide for reports based upon performance analysis in areas critical to that plan, with feedback loops that allow for titivation of every aspect of the business, including recruitment and training regimens. In effect, MIS must not only indicate how things are going, but why they are not going as well as planned where that is the case. These reports would include performance relative to cost centers and projects that drive profit or loss, and do so in such a way that identifies individual accountability, and in virtual real-time.
Anytime a business is looking at implementing a new business system it is very important to use a system development method such as System Development Life Cycle. The life cycle includes Analysis, Requirements, Design, Development, Testing and Implementation.
