SIMS is compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Microsoft SQL Server 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017, and 2019, and the free SQL Express edition. All database changes are available in real-time since all SIMS users share a common database, securely located behind your corporate firewall and optionally partitioned by data groups or lines of business.
Different business units can share certain data elements across the entire enterprise (e.g. personnel information) while restricting other data elements to specific business units and users (e.g. documents, safes, containers, etc.). Each SIMS user account can be configured to provide no-access, read-only access or full read-write access by module and data group. This provides strict access control on a record-by-record and user-by-user basis.
