An Overview of Cim200 Manufacturing

Our fully integrated product looks and feels like Sage 200, adding all of the extra functionality you would expect from a comprehensive manufacturing solution for SMEs.

Migrating from Sage 200 Manufacturing to Cim200 Manufacturing

Migrating from one system to another shouldn’t be difficult or complicated. That’s why CIM have developed a seamless migration tool for businesses looking to upgrade their manufacturing software solution. A typical Sage 200 Manufacturing to Cim200 Manufacturing migration is completed in 4-8 weeks.

Here’s the process for our software migrations…

Test Migration

Your Cim200 consultant will take your existing Sage 200 Manufacturing system data and carry out a test migration. This data will also be used for training and testing.

Training

This can be carried out in a variety of formats, depending on your preferences and organisational structure.

Reports

Existing reports, documentation and layouts produced by your current system are reproduced in Cim200.

Testing

You carry out testing and familiarisation exercises to ensure you are happy with the migration and are familiar with Cim200.

Live Migration

We’ll migrate your live data, and then provide post go-live support on site to help you through your first day or two using the new system.
