Import your Inventory data with the SIMMS Visual Import Manager

Visual Import Manager

The SIMMS Visual Import Manager (VIM) facilitates the import of your vital customer, inventory item and transactional data into SIMMS 2014 Inventory Management software. Stock units of measure, vendor details, existing quotes, and many more inventory particulars can all be pulled into the SIMMS system quickly and easily in a comprehensive state-of-the-art interface that gives you the latitude of precision and a wide variety of choice.

The VIM employs “open architecture”, taking advantage of the most current business application software and databases available at the current time. Businesses in the past have been forced to settle for discrete applications that run in stand-alone form, often having to perform multiple steps and intricate functions to produce reports. SIMMS has integrated reporting that allows for easy selection of details on its reports, and as such, can link information in various formats and from numerous sources to make the software you have work better together. To this end, SIMMS achieves this integration using Open DataBase Connectivity (ODBC), a now-standard integration platform.
