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

The Stock Profile screen is a powerful tool 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.



Adjusting your stock levels is easy using the enhanced Cim50 stocktake facility. Giving you the ability to count all items or a subset of items based on location, last usage date, value or any other filter you wish to apply.

Whilst a stocktake is in process, you can prohibit all stock transactions throughout the system for items effected by that stocktake.

You can process a stocktake in one of 3 ways.

  • Utilise the Cim50 SFDC module to scan barcodes and directly enter count figures into the tablet or scanner.
  • Export your count sheets to Excel, which can be amended and then reimported to update count figures.
  • Print manual count sheets which can be filled in and then entered back into Cim50 directly.



Quarantine enables the inspection of goods that have been placed into quarantine during receipt into stock or transferred via adjustments.

View and inspect these items, with stock being released to available stock or written off, with the ability to print supplier returns notes if required.

Inspection records are retained indefinitely, and either recorded against the batch/serial number or stock record.


KPIs & Dashboards


Monitor key indicators for your stock, including supplier and despatch performance with cost variances, in one easy to view enquiry screen.

Utilise the dashboard functionality to see stock valuation breakdowns, by product group, last usage date and sell by/use by date.

Enquiries for Best and Worst performing suppliers based on OTIF targets are available.


Audit Log

The Cim50 audit log records any change made to the static data associated with a stock record.

From minor value changes to additional suppliers and units of measure, everything is captured.

Export the audit log to Excel for further analysis.

Changes recorded in Sage 50 do not go unnoticed, with the Cim50 integration identifying changes made in Sage 50, updating Cim50 accordingly and recording the change in the audit log.
