Supported Browsers


The minimum hardware requirements vary for each SIMS user and are determined by the type of work you do.
As a general guideline, we recommend at least the minimum hardware requirements for your browser. Please note that the more multi-tasking you do or the larger the files that you are working with, the more memory, hard drive space and processing capability your machine will need.
