CIM Software LLC was started in December 1996 as computer consultants to help clients make effective use of available information technology. The initial focus was MRP (Manufacturing Resource Planning) and SBT Accounting software for manufacturing companies.
An early obvious requirement was also for CRM (Customer Relationship Management) software. Initially, we supplied TeleMagic to satisfy this need. Ultimately both Act! and TeleMagic were acquired by Sage Software. Sage favored the Act! solution and discontinued further development of TeleMagic. In 2012 Swiftpage acquired Act! as their only software offering. Swiftpage had been the Act! eMarketing solution incorporated into the software for 10 years. This move brought a wealth of development talent, new ideas and energy to improve the Act! CRM solution.
In addition to Act! sales, implementation & training, CIM Software also provides a full range of consulting services for the design & implementation of computer networks, software implementation, managed services & security focused on the diverse requirements of small and medium businesses.
Our objective is to help you organize, stay in control & maximize the effectiveness of your technology investment.
