Real-Time Construction Accounting Software

About Us

MICS founder and president, Cesar Bosio, received his Master of Science degree in Construction Engineering and Management from Stanford University. His experience as a construction project manager taught him the need for effective job cost control. Dissatisfied with existing software products, Mr. Bosio resolved to produce better construction specific accounting and management software. The result of this resolve was the formation of Management Information Control Systems, Inc., which would produce Builder Information System.


Since 1983, Management Information Control Systems, Inc. (MICS) has been producing construction specific accounting software. The initial DOS based Builder Information System released set a new standard in the construction accounting world. Although the product contained many innovations, one key feature set it apart from the competition: real-time accounting. With the introduction of real-time accounting to the construction industry, the cumbersome days of batch processing were over. 'End of month processing' and 'posting routines' became relics of the past. For the first time, contractors had up-to-the-minute financial information available without hassle and at any time - no more waiting until the end of the month for financial statements and jobs status reports.


After several years of development, BIS® for Windows® was completed in 1997. It was completely re-written, specifically to coincide with Microsoft® standards. When the effort was complete, BIS® for Windows® was sent to an independent software laboratory for evaluation. This designation ensures conformity to Microsoft's standards for stability, ease of use and product performance.

Currently, BIS® is available in 4 Editions: Essential, Standard, Professional and Enterprise. With a full range of products, BIS® can meet the needs of just about every contractor.


The BIS® design team is committed to producing innovative, technologically advanced, and easy to use products that meet the needs of contractors today and in future. The design team and company leadership listens to customers and provides solutions based on solid accounting practices. These solutions, while utilizing cutting edge technology, are easy to implement and save users time. MICS is a company that produces and will produce the best construction accounting and management software available.


The MICS central office is located in Atascadero, California - halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, on the beautiful Central Coast. Any inquires from software resellers, construction professionals or building end-users are welcome.
