5 Reasons to Switch to Cim200 Manufacturing from Sage 200 Manufacturing

5 reasons to switch to Cim200 Manufacturing from Sage 200 Manufacturing

Cim200 Manufacturing was released in November 2021 and is a product we developed in-house as an alternative solution to Sage 200 Manufacturing. Why? To provide our customers with an ever-evolving, innovative product after Sage 200 Manufacturing had little development work carried out within the last decade.

Following creation, Sage themselves appointed an independent software testing company to test the stability and functionality of Cim200. It passed the tests with flying colours and has been listed on the Sage Marketplace ever since. With Sage 200 Manufacturing in Extended Support, here’s why you should consider switching to Cim200…

5 Reasons to switch to our Cim200 Manufacturing:

1. Familiar user-friendly interface

When designing Cim200 Manufacturing we followed several key philosophies to ensure our software is familiar to customers who currently use Sage 200 Manufacturing.

Our aim was to keep the familiar look and functionality whilst introducing a range of additional features as well as time-saving efficiencies.

The familiar interface means limited training is required, keeping the migration costs to a minimum.

2. Continuous product development

Cim200 Manufacturing is a product that has been developed using 120+ years of industry-leading manufacturing experience. With an annually released new version and multiple service packs throughout the year, the product is constantly evolving and improving.

We also have a Wishlist where customers can submit development requests. These can then be upvoted and all submissions are considered for our next releases.

3. Seamless migration tool

A specifically designed tool allows you to migrate from Sage 200 Manufacturing to Cim200 quickly and easily.

This “One-Click” migration tool will carry over your data and settings from Sage 200 Manufacturing with minimal downtime.

Our migration tool is not limited to Sage 200 Manufacturing either. You can use the migration tool to upgrade from Cim50, our manufacturing solution for Sage 50, or from Infor:Swan.

4. Improved efficiency

As part of the solution, we have added enhancements to several Sage modules as well as standalone new modules.

The manufacturing modules have been designed from the ground up.

Some notable improvements include the scheduling of MPS and MRP directly from Sage 200 Professional, the use of multiple routes, and enhanced Works Order and BOM costing screens, to name a few. There are also several time-saving enhancements, such as the powerful ‘Stock Profile’, a one-stop shop for all stock movements.

5. Customisable solution

No two businesses work in exactly the same way. That’s why Cim200 is easily customisable to fit your business’ needs.

New settings and functionality enable you to tailor Cim200 to operate within your business requirements. We also offer a bespoke development service to help users get the most out of the system.

Cim200 SDK’s also allow you to seamlessly integrate 3rd party applications from other specialist software solutions.

Cim200 is built into Sage 200 Professional and provides an ever-growing range of enhancements and new features that you can take advantage of. New powerful enquiry screens and user-friendly functionality enable you to streamline your processes and save time.
