Morristown, NJ, January 12, 2006 -- Sensory Computer Systems today announced the newest release of the Sensory Information Management System 2000 for Windows/XP/2000/2003, SIMS version 6. The program fully automates the collection and analysis of sensory testing and market research data. Unmatched power, flexibility, and speed combine to make SIMS the perfect automation tool for any Sensory or Market Research department. SIMS integrates all phases of consumer research testing, including the design, execution, and analysis functions, into a simple and flexible software program that saves time and money.
SIMS version 6 incorporates many new features to improve program flexibility and performance. The software is fully compatible with the Microsoft SQL Server 2005 platform for database support, including the free, easy-to-use, lightweight SQL Express Edition. Advanced Statistical Analysis capability has been enhanced to work with JMP from SAS Institute, adding to the already comprehensive statistics and reporting features throughout SIMS . The Panelist Credits Rewards System improves customer control of the sensory or market research testing budget.
"SIMS increases productivity in every step of the sensory and market research testing process," said John Ream, Managing Director of Sensory Computer Systems. "And, with the immediate results SIMS offers in the form of statistical reports and graphs, test administrators no longer have to spend valuable time inputting and analyzing test results."
Beginning with industry standard descriptive, affective, discrimination and consumer tests, SIMS allows users to work in an easy question and answer format. This format specifies sensory test standards including presentation methods, rotation plans for both complete and incomplete block designs, and randomization.
Wizards, menus and pop-up lists simplify complex user choices. Once a test is designed, test administrators can conduct sample sessions right on their PC workstations, allowing them to quickly identify problems and refine test procedures. SIMS automates data collection, speeds input and reduces errors by both testers and sensory technicians. SIMS also improves data quality by eliminating keypunch errors and missing data.
"We can now offer our customers a cost-effective way to get the quickest most accurate results possible," said Paul Lichtman, Director of Strategic Planning for Sensory Computer Systems. "SIMS is truly what the Sensory Testing and Market Research Testing industry has needed for a long time."
