New Simulation Information Management System (SIMS)

New Simulation Information Management System (SIMS)

As many of you have noticed, WISER has recently implemented a new Simulation Information Management System (SIMS). SIMS is a web based learning and facilities management system that WISER uses to deliver educational content, schedule classes and collect information from many different sources. The new system has been in development for nearly a year. In addition to an improved look and feel, there are significant functional changes and increased usability, as well as a decrease in the administrative workload. The information technology team at WISER worked with UPMC Diversified Services to implement the system on new server hardware, which will provide enhanced performance over the previous system. The WISER IT team will continue to work with our partners on increasing the functionality and scope of the system throughout the coming year. There will be announcements detailing this increased functionality on the web site. The team welcomes your suggestions, which you can email to wiserhelp@upmc.edu.
