What Cim50 & Cim200 Can Do For Your Manufacturing Business

March 20, 2023

The manufacturing industry is constantly evolving with new challenges, and keeping up to date with the latest tools and products can be difficult. It is important to have a business management software that requires little human intervention, adapts to the changing demands of a manufacturing business, and scales with your organisation.

Cim50 manufacturing was developed to replace Sage 50 Manufacturing, and Cim200 manufacturing replaced Sage 200 Manufacturing. Sage worked with independent software vendors who specialise in industry-specific solutions, allowing them to create manufacturing software that goes above and beyond the traditional choices.

What Is Cim50 Manufacturing?

Cim50 manufacturing integrates easily with Sage 50, allowing you to access a complete manufacturing package. Allowing you to easily track & manage the items you buy, sell or manufacture, giving you complete control over your production process. Not only does Cim50 provide you with uncomplicated reports, it also easily adapts to changing needs within businesses.

Cim50 manufacturing delivers a lot more than most manufacturing software can, providing you with the following features:

  1. Stock control – with modules including traceability, quarantine, and the ability to amend sales orders and purchase order receipts.
  2. Bill of materials – choose the right options for your business, including audit logs, costing history and material overheads.
  3. Shop floor data capture – streamline your production processes by processing stock transactions from a handheld tablet.
  4. Works orders – easily assign components to specific operations & follow the build on the shop floor.
  5. Planning – gain access to recommended purchase orders based on current demand held within both Cim50 and Sage 50cloud accounts.
  6. Quotations – raise sales, purchase and works orders, set up repeat services and more.

  2. Bill of materials – providing flexibility for your business, there is the option for a multi-level bill of materials with the ability to build and reverse build too!
  3. Works orders – as well as raising purchase orders, you can despatch goods to your subcontract supplier and receive them back, all within the same dashboard!
  4. Commercials – this is where the customer experience comes in. Users can generate scheduled orders with multiple delivery dates, improving order routing.
  5. Planning – by reading demands across all modules, the demands of your customers can be met in an efficient way.
