HERE’S WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY ABOUT US AND CiMS (IT’S ALL GOOD!)
Building an agency from the ground up, we wanted to implement a system that would make our jobs easier and free up time for the more important tasks at hand. CiMS ticks all the boxes of a software designed to do just that. It’s easy to navigate and covers all the bases, from booking a project to closing it out, plus all the steps in between.
Using CiMS, we went from working up estimates in Word or Excel to being able to present our clients with a cohesive and professional bid. Support is outstanding. The team listen to our concerns, implement relevant changes, and are always working on upgrades that reflect our ever-changing landscape of projects. CiMS is the best tool you could add to your arsenal as an agent. Bravo Team CiMS, and thank you!
CiMS has been integral to our business since we became its first client in 2012, and we’ve been happy ever since. It’s adapted as our company has evolved, which is key to why we are still using it. Finding the perfect estimating system is the holy grail – and CiMS gets pretty close!
Having a centralised management system is hugely beneficial; by linking to our accountants’ platforms, it saves us time and money, making reconciliation fast and accurate – a blessing to any producer! It’s very user-friendly and its flexibility is paramount. The team offer a personal approach and willingly make changes at our request. We recommend CiMS to anyone looking for a secure estimating/invoicing system that provides more than an Excel spreadsheet ever can.
I find more time to meet clients and pitch to brands as a company using CiMS. I don’t need to fence off half a day to process and work up a budget – CiMS does it for you.
If you are an agency, creative or talent and work daily on production, with estimates ever-changing, I couldn’t recommend CiMS enough. You can add in and complete complex usages and budgets within minutes, generate advance, fee and sales invoices and keep all contacts, clients and needed information in one place.
CiMS is really becoming the foundation for our business in a way that I didn’t think possible of a program. I am thrilled that you are so supportive with every small question and every big idea we have for the software. Thank you so much!
Since we signed up four years ago, CiMS has proved an invaluable resource in terms of rationalising internal workflows, billing and reporting and in the streamlining of our digital communications. The database interfaces seamlessly with our e-comms software, which is a real timesaver. On top of that, the CiMS team are friendly and responsive. I would recommend CiMS in an instant.
CiMS has been the answer to my OCD wishes. The ability to generate extremely detailed invoices, estimates, credit notes, reports and manage my work contacts has kept my financials and billing organised in a way I never knew could exist in our business. For me, what makes the software so powerful and robust is the ability to customise and adjust everything. Nothing is left unaccounted for with CiMS. Plus, the ability for any staff to have access with permissions gives a lot of flexibility and ultimately saves us a lot of time.
CiMS gives our clients easy access to the information they need and gives us easy access to the information we need. The extraction of accounting information in real time allows us to proactively advise as to business performance and health and to help identify any planning opportunities.
You can easily see all projects in progress, sort by client and revenue stream, and drill down with numerous filters – this type of insight encourages greater organisation. Management reporting allows you to track stages of the project from optioned to confirmed, invoicing and outstanding payments. CiMS optimises workflows and processes to make your company efficient, which helps team members keep focused on tasks and the big-picture goals.
CIMs is the perfect tool for the busy producer: budgeting and reconciliation on the move, whilst being able to send estimate updates in multiple currencies.
CiMS has been the most brilliant tool for me as a producer; managing my large-scale advertising budgets would not be possible with out it. Great layout and easy to navigate, and the CiMS team are beyond helpful! As my business grows I can add users and keep track of all my projects. I feel confident that everything is safely stored online to be accessed anywhere and continuously being updated with new features. I highly recommend this system; having used it as an agent and now as a busy producer I can say it covers the whole spectrum of needs within the industry.
Thank you, Guys – CIMS is working so well for me. Putting an estimate together is easy and actualising for final billing is great, too. I love the fact that if I have a question about the software it’s pretty much answered immediately, and that you’ve been able to customise CIMS to my needs.
