"I love JAMS. The caveman on your website hits home. My client is coming from old
hardware/OS/application to Linux/Modernized application. Sometimes when I read their
jobs I think they're coming from stone knives and bear skins to a Lexus."
“Seriously, JAMS is one of the best pieces of software I've ever used.”
"Things are going well. We are just rolling out JAMS to automate some Unix Jobs
that we have. This will probably require additional agents. Will ping you when that
needs comes up. Overall, we find the system to be very good. It is certainly better
than our previous scheduling system. Your support department has been awesome. They
have been super helpful and responsive. Easy to say they are the best support team
I have worked with."
"Just a quick note to let you know that I was able to get help from MVP out of hours.
This was extremely time sensitive as the company’s main overnight batch job was
due to run in 50 minutes. Another reason for my ever increasing respect for JAMS
the product, and MVP the company."

"JAMS has delivered the robust and flexible solution we needed to develop and fine-tune the job scheduling automation needs for our environment. The JAMS support team has been responsive and most importantly—solution oriented! We run a complex hybrid environment; nevertheless, each call to JAMS support has been a ‘first-call-fix’ which is so refreshing!"
"JAMS has been working marvelously. It is doing a way better job than Windows Scheduler.
Everything has been great."
"Thanks for the great support today. I think we are getting the hang of it and it
would not have happened without your quick responses. I never expect support to
be almost immediate, but your support is well above any other I have ever seen.
"Our business has become reliant on JAMS for nearly all scheduling and cross-platform
application integration. We are impressed to find feature-to-feature parity between
JAMS on OpenVMS and JAMS .NET."
"We are doing well with JAMS so far. Everyone has been great to work with and responsive
to questions and enhancements. I think JAMS is a great product. I feel lucky that
I found it by searching; it never came up the first few times I was searching for
job scheduling software. To me, the thing that sets it apart is the security model.
That is specifically what I was looking for, the ability to control who can submit
jobs, and who these jobs can run as. This is giving us a good way to delegate functions
that run as privileged users to non-privileged users. I'll be happy to be a reference
if you ever need one."
"Please pass this information on to your supervisor. During the upgrade process,
the system emailed back to support that there was an error and within 5 minutes
I received an email from an MVP support engineer stating what to look for and possible
solutions to the problem. I did not have to do any of the research myself and I
did not even have to call! I wish all upgrades would run this smoothly and had this
level of support. Thank you MVP Systems for your support."
Hansen & Adkins
"We had an incident just yesterday where production data was damaged. Due to the
JAMS alert, we were able to repair and resume production in under one hour. Without
JAMS, it would have been several days before anyone realized the production job
was not running. An incident of this nature was my motivation to acquire a commercial
scheduler application. I am pleased that JAMS has lived up to my expectations."
JP Morgan Chase
"Start up was fast and easy, and it's gone a long way in helping us create the lights
out environment we wanted. We went from queues we had to monitor for notification
of missed jobs, jobs not running, jobs that died, and things like that to a basically
hands-off operation. It's done a lot to improve our efficiency."
Ohio Education Computer Network
"I work at a not-for-profit organization in Ohio that provides IT services to our
member school districts. There are a total of 23 similar sites in Ohio and we all
use JAMS. We use JAMS in our student services application (grade cards, class scheduling,
attendance, discipline, state reporting data entry, etc). The web application is
written in .NET Framework 1.1 and makes calls via the JAMS .NET programming interface
to kick off batch processes when the end user selects tasks that are not well suited
to run on the web server (i.e. longer running or resource intensive processes).
JAMS then coordinates the running of these tasks in the background on an application
JAMS allows us to run background jobs initiated by end users via a web application.
It also provides better error handling, notification, and job history then some
of the other built-in scheduling programs. The JAMS product has been very cost-effective
and robust. Support from the start has been top-notch. Thanks to the JAMS team."
"Our group has been working to migrate our processing from a legacy scripting language
to the JAMS platform. The thing we are most excited about is the use of triggers.
As we receive the ‘trigger’ emails from vendors our jobs are kicked
off. The workflow interface is much easier to setup than our legacy scripting language
giving JAMS a plug and play feel. With the ability to use PowerShell as well as
the GUI we don’t feel boxed in like some other tools. Support has been outstanding
and has helped us along as we are new to the JAMS platform and are learning how
to migrate our current processes into a new system."
"I just wanted to let you know that we are very appreciative of the continued support.
Your company is doing a great job assisting us with training."
Ohio National Financial
“I can't say thank you enough for the support your company has provided before,
during, and after the sale. As we continue to develop new ways to utilize JAMS to
fit our needs, I'm confident that your team will be there to overcome the challenges
and bring intelligent managed solutions to the table.”

“We have moved all of our medium jobs over and are getting ready to move the
critical and emergency jobs over. As a system admin, JAMS has been a great product
to implement and support. JAMS is easy to use, easy to maintain and the business
users feel very comfortable using the product. After reviewing a number of other
products, and seeing how difficult these systems were to implement and support,
I was very happy when I got the chance to review JAMS.
We set up a three tier environment, DEV, QA and Production. I got the server up
and running in no time and I was able to get jobs running in DEV the same day that
server was set up. Of all the features that JAMS provide out of the box, I think
the best one is JAMS support. Support has been great as we move toward production
and they have answered all of our questions and gone beyond to explain things that
we were not clear on.
You have a great product in your hands, your support staff is great and that combination
makes the whole system a real winner for us.”
“We've been using JAMS for about 15 years and it’s been very reliable.
I like the flexibility of the product and ease of use. I can’t think of anything
that JAMS cannot do for us. It’s a very good product.”
“Everything, and I mean everything, is automated in JAMS. Backups, maintenance,
everything runs in JAMS. We have over 600 jobs running daily. If we need to change
the schedule we change JAMS, not the job. It's great.”
"We are heavily relying on the JAMS Scheduler these days and it has been successful
so far. My team is very much focused around Continuous Delivery and JAMS gives us
the ability to source control our job/setup/system definitions as XML and import
them using PowerShell as part of our automated deployments. This makes the JAMS
instances very consistent across environments. This is a very good feature that
I believe you should add to your marketing as Continuous Delivery is starting to
become more mainstream."
"I wish all our vendors were partners like you! I love JAMS but not just the tool,
I love the commitment you and all the JAMS/MVP associates have made to helping us
successfully leverage this tool to accomplish our goals. I tell EVERYONE about it,
and have even started to use my experience with you guys as a measurement of future
IT vendor candidates."
"We have relatively large recurring tasks that we have to run each week for different
sites. These jobs involve a number of dependencies and system constraints which,
in the past, required a great deal of operator involvement. Now we've set everything
up in JAMS, and for the most part, it's all pretty much automatic."
"I just want to give you an update and let you know how well your support team has
been over the last couple of months. Even though we have not been inundating them
with questions, they have responded quickly and efficiently to our immediate needs.
We are looking forward in utilizing 100% of JAMS once we get our system converted
over from AutoSys this year. Thanks again for the great support! "
"I want to thank you for all the help and support from the MVP Systems team this
year. I must say it was a pleasure working with you. The whole experience from evaluation,
purchasing, installation, training, support, etc. was enjoyable and a great success
for TyMetrix and specifically my team this past year. "
The World Bank
"Our business is lending money to developing countries for a wide range of projects.
As a result, we run a lot of accounting and overnight pricing jobs plus portfolio
evaluation jobs and interapplication daily transfer jobs. There are a number of
interdependencies between all of these; the data flows between the various applications;
and the accounting jobs have different cycles or periods -like on the third Thursday
of the month, you might run a job between two other jobs, but on any other day,
those two jobs might run back to back. JAMS takes these complex interdependencies
and calendar requirements and makes the whole process much, much easier."
"JAMS has been a tremendous asset to us and falls into the realm of a very few of
the most technically polished and reliable products we operate ..."
"I wanted to drop you a line and say thank you for adding those cool features in
JAMS (auditing, cancel with success). They make our lives very easy. I love your
product and great support you’ve been providing over the years."
"We started out looking at more than a dozen job scheduling products to make sure
we covered our bases, with the vendors ranging from some of the largest software
vendors in the world to companies with two or three employees. After spending about
four months evaluating various products, only JAMS met all of our requirements.
We especially liked their 24-by-7 support, which was critical to us since most of
our batch processing occurs during non-business hours and on the weekends. We have
now been running JAMS for more than a decade and the product is performing extremely

"We have fully incorporated JAMS into our new cloud based infrastructure. JAMS has
given us a reliable automation tool as well as an administration tool which has
eliminated manual errors. Mundane repetitive tasks are now standard setups in JAMS
which give a 100% accuracy rate on tasks."

"JAMS is working great. Thanks for a great product."
"We had an issue this weekend that required some assistance on JAMS. After leaving
a voicemail on your support number, I received a callback in less than five minutes.
That’s excellent support, especially for a Saturday afternoon. You guys are the
