Switch to Cim50

5 reasons to switch to Cim50 from Sage 50 Manufacturing

15/10/2020 By: Jake Middleton

Why should you switch to Cim50, from Sage 50 Manufacturing…

1. Integration with Sage 50cloud Accounts

We understand from the Sage 50 Manufacturing Product Update that Sage will no longer test the integration between Sage 50 Manufacturing and Sage 50cloud Accounts from the next release (v27).

Cim50 is currently compatible with Sage 50cloud Accounts v25 and v26, ensuring that this vital integration between your software packages is never interrupted.

Access all product record fields from Sage 50cloud Accounts within Cim50.

2. Continuous product development

As you know, Sage 50 Manufacturing has had little development work carried out within the last decade.

Cim50 is a product that has been developed using 100+ years of industry-leading manufacturing experience. With a yearly new version and multiple service packs throughout the year, you can expect a whole host of new features to improve your manufacturing processes.

We listen to all comments and feedback received from customers to keep producing a solution that will prove data management and processing for all.

3. Modern, updated user interface

When designing Cim50, we followed several key philosophies to ensure our software package is familiar to customers who currently use Sage 50 Manufacturing.

We have replaced the somewhat outdated manufacturing user interface, with an easy to use, modern user interface, backed with new, powerful technology.

4. Easily customisable

Cim50 is easily customisable to fit your business needs.

Select from a variety of modules, with Stock Control as standard, giving you complete visibility from supplier through to the customer, along with everything you need to manage your manufacturing processes.

Cim50 includes additional, configurable analysis codes throughout each module, which can be tailored and set up to suit your business requirements. 

5. Control your data backups

Cim50 has redesigned and changed the way you backup your data.

Manually backup and restore both your Sage 50 Accounts and Cim50 at the same time. Schedule an automatic backup, so you can rest assured that both your software packages are tied together, and never out of sync.

BONUS – SQL 2005 backwards compatibility

Sage 50 Manufacturing uses SQL express as a database for storing information.

In order to use Sage 50 Manufacturing with the latest versions of SQL, you need to be able to install the SQL 2005 backward compatibility components. These are no longer supported or available from the Microsoft website.

This presents a challenge for customers looking to upgrade their hardware and still use Sage 50 Manufacturing.

BONUS – Migration tool for Sage 50 Manufacturing

Switching to Cim50 is seamless with a one-click migration tool, moving your Sage 50 Manufacturing data to Cim50 modules.

BONUS – Streamline your business processes

Cim50 integrates seamlessly with Sage 50cloud Accounts and Microsoft Office 365, saving you time and boosting productivity.

Generate emails with Outlook and export data to Excel for further reporting.

We would also be more than happy to provide you with a demonstration of the software. Please contact us should you wish to arrange this.
