Cim50’s traceability functionality allows you to track all batch and serial number movements throughout the system.

  • Goods Receipt – Record batch/serial numbers on items received into stock from a purchase order.
  • Production – Allocate and Issue traceable components to BOM Builds or Works Orders and generate batch/serial numbers for manufactured items.
  • Goods Despatch – Record batch/serial numbers on items despatched to customers.

Utilise the easy-to-use enquiry screens to quickly lookup information on any batch/serial number, with detailed usage history, costing breakdown and inspection details.


Stock Profile

Utilise powerful enquiry screens such as the Stock Profile, enabling you to see a complete overview of your stock position for an item.

From one screen you can see your current stock position, what orders are awaiting receipt from suppliers or works orders, what outstanding customer orders are on the system, what stock is in quarantine, giving you all the information you need to make an informed decision.

Furthermore, real-time and planning projections are available, showing you the expected position of stock into the future.


Multi-Level BOM

Maintain Bill of Materials with Unlimited Components & Levels.

Configure your built items to meet all necessary manufacturing specifications, no matter the complexity or number of components.


Work In Progress

Maintain material allocations and work in progress. Allocate and issue components to production to facilitate accurate stock holdings and comprehensive WIP reporting.

Track production across the entire manufacturing process. Review rough cut resource availability and produce shop floor paperwork with detailed instructions and times.


Just In Time Planning

Cim50 is a “Just-in-Time” manufacturing system. The planning module recommends placing orders with suppliers and starting production so that they arrive exactly when they are needed, minimising your stock holding levels and maximising your cashflow.


Quote Built Items

Configure built items being quoted for, whilst you’re preparing a quotation for a customer or prospect using the Cim50 Quotations module.

Import an existing bill of material to amend or create a new one from scratch. Cost the configured item and ensure your profit margins are maximised.



Utilise the power of barcoding to maximise processing efficiency with Cim50’s Shop Floor Data Capture module.

Process almost any stock transaction from the SFDC module with a couple of clicks and scanning a barcode.

Calculate your Carbon Footprint with Cim50

Calculate the carbon emissions generated from your manufacturing processes through two different modes; simple and complete.

  • Simple Mode: Input the types of fuel you are using, the quantity and the timeframe, as well as the carbon footprint of your purchased items from your suppliers.
  • Complete Mode: Enter fuel usage and type against your production machinery, details of your vehicle fleet (including annual mileage, fuel type and emissions data), total fuel bills for a time period (the system will work out the proportion for the item) as well as the carbon footprint of any materials from suppliers.

Then, from the Cim50 Carbon Calculator Dashboard, view your carbon footprint on a month by month basis and see which products have the highest carbon footprint as well as which machinery and vehicles are costing the most.

“I would recommend CIM Software and Cim50 without a doubt. We’re very impressed. The support is fantastic, Paul is the perfect trainer and the whole team have a can-do attitude.”

Owain, Managing Director of Amcanu


One Click Migration From Sage 50 Manufacturing

Cim50 is Sage’s recommended replacement for their Sage 50 Manufacturing solution which is now end of life.

We have developed a seamless migration tool to help reduce the time and cost associated with implementing a new system.

Simply stop working in Sage 50 Manufacturing at an agreed time (typically a Friday evening) and your Cim50 consultant will then migrate your data to Cim50.

This typically takes a couple of hours.

As soon as your consultant has confirmed its ready, you can start working in your new Cim50 system complete with all of your data and reports.

How would a typical migration project work?

1. Test Migration

Your Cim50 consultant will take your existing Sage 50 Manufacturing system data and carry out a test migration.

2. Training

This can be carried out in variety of formats including online, in person or both.

3. Reports

Existing reports, documentation and layouts produced by your current system are reproduced in Cim50.

4. Testing

You’ll carry out testing and familiarisation exercises to ensure you are happy with the migration.

5. Live Migration

We’ll migrate your live data and provide post go-live support on site to help you with your new system.

If you’re currently using another manufacturing solution, we can work with you to migrate your data in an alternate way.
