Guide My Work – Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Guide My Work?
Guide My Work (GMW) is a subscription-based Manufacturing Execution System (MES). It includes many of the features from our standard Assembly MES, but simplified.
How Is Guide My Work Different From The Nysus Solutions MES You Currently Offer?
Guide My Work has only a few key differences from the standard Nysus MES:
- It’s cloud-based, rather than hosted on a server, so installation and start-up is quick and easy.
- It’s a subscription service that gives you the ability to use it (and pay for it) when you need it.
- It does not allow for complex ERP/MRP integration or customization to reports, displays or utilities. This allows us to keep the cost low.
That’s it! You get most of the benefits and tools that a full-blown MES offers without the complex configuration and setup that you may not need.
