J-MEDIA LAUNCHES WITH UNIQUE APPROACH TO SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT Thursday 26 July 2001 PDF Print User collaboration to observe & comment on development site ensures project success, customer buy-in and no need for IT training J-Media, a specialist provider of new media solutions and services, today launches with a unique approach to software development that ensures no IT training is required. By collaborating with customers, allowing them to view and test their website, business portal or corporate intranet from its earliest conceptual stages through the development cycle, and encouraging users to contribute to that development, J-Media ensures project success, user buy-in and ownership, without the need for IT education or training. Dave Graham, Managing Director of J-Media comments, “IT vendors want to tie their customers into lucrative maintenance contracts, often delivering unfinished software masquerading as the end solution. Making money in this way dooms most projects to failure from the outset.” Graham continues, “J-Media collaborates with the project team from day one, giving full visibility of the development in progress and soliciting user involvement. We therefore deliver finished product with customers fully bought into the solution and little need for whole scale change moving forward. We save them bucket loads of cash in this way.” J-Media specialises in the development of new media solutions and services that are designed to help companies use technology to improve their business. Ranging from e-business consultancy to portal and website design, J-Media specialises in delivering corporate intranets supported by bespoke document and content management tools that enable companies to manage their own business processes. Delivering new media solutions to companies of all shapes and sizes, J-Media has particular expertise in the pharmaceutical marketplace, where knowledge of the specific business requirements and regulations is crucial. The company works directly with the corporate IT managers, as well as with individual product managers through medical communications agencies. Customers currently include AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline. Dave Graham concludes, “J-Media believes that every company is unique, therefore the solution or service we provide to that company is designed to be as unique. If pen and paper is the best solution, then that is what we will suggest. But when technology is involved, we will genuinely work with our customers to ensure that our solutions work the way they need to work to best suit their specific needs.” About J-Media J-Media, based in Cheshire, provides new media solutions and services ranging from e-business consultancy to intranet and web application development, with a proven track record in developing content management tools and corporate intranets for customers including AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline.
