News about Cim50

After recently announcing the ‘end of support’ for Sage 50 Manufacturing, businesses have until September 2021 to find an alternative system. Whilst this does not mean that the software will stop working after that date, there will be no further development of the product.

What you need to know about the changes

With effect from 30th November 2020 you will no longer be able to add users to Sage 50 Manufacturing.

As we are unable to obtain 2nd line support from Sage we will be invoicing our renewals pro-rata to 30th September 2021.

Cim50 is only available on subscription – anybody that upgrades to Cim50 will get a pro-rata credit of the support paid for Sage 50 Manufacturing.
