Migration from Sage 200 Manufacturing

One of the big challenges when changing your business critical systems is the time it takes, and the effort required. Whether it be time preparing your data for migration, the downtime endured whilst the migration takes place, through to the time needed for post migration auditing, checks and sign-off. Not forgetting staff buy-in, which can be the downfall of any good project if not handled carefully.

We’ve mitigated all of these issues. The familiarity of Cim200 for existing Sage 200 users ensures staff buy-in and minimises training requirements. Then, when it comes to migrating your data, simply stop working in Sage 200 Manufacturing system at an agreed time (typically a Friday evening), your Cim200 consultant will then migrate your data to Cim200, which takes a few minutes (seconds in some cases), they will then interrogate the audit logs, and utilise a suite of reports to ensure everything migrated correctly, and you can then start working in your new system straight away.

Test Migration

Your Cim200 consultant will take your existing Sage 200 Manufacturing system data and carry out a test migration.


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


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


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.

A typical migration project from Sage 200 Manufacturing to Cim200 would be completed in 4-8 weeks.
