Companies that in the past may have put up with discrete applications running stand-alone, and performed software gymnastics to obtain integrated reporting from their tools, are now demanding that these products work together. To facilitate this process, an industry standard known as open database connectivity (ODBC) was developed. The SIMMS Visual Import Manager has been designed to facilitate seamless integration between SIMMS data and Microsoft Access. The SIMMS Visual Import Manager can import from Microsoft Access, without the need for an intermediary data file such as ASCII delimited or Microsoft Excel. If you regularly perform imports from a custom or vertical software package, you’ll find you can use Visual Import Manager to make the integration virtually seamless.
Importing data using the SIMMS Visual Import Manager is a simple process.
If you use SIMMS Software, Visual Import Manager is what you need to tie all your business software into one seamless application.
