The new Cyber Security software , in addition to the cyber security software already in place from the Hosting infrastructure provider, increases the level of monitoring, detection and  blocking of known as well as emerging security threats. The JOMAR Cyber Security software partners have large operation centers that monitor  24x7 regions of the world for emerging threats and proactively update the security sensors installed at the JOMAR  Hosting Sites. JOMAR has also reviewed market leading Cyber Security Software that is designed to specifically monitor and sanitize targeted attacks from e-mail traffic.  JOMAR clients have purchased software from these vendors to increase the level of protection   for the Hosted environments as well as their internal  infrastructure, networks  and on premise deployed software.


The JOMAR Hosting Services Disaster Recovery Site has been upgraded to provide clients with a hot  , fully synchronized DR site that can be brought online immediately in the event the primary site, which also includes a fully synchronized  and replicated production system on a separate physical back-up server, is brought down due to a natural disaster. The DR facilities and services  include purchased  and installed computer hardware, communications bandwidth and support services  that are equivalent to the production primary site facilities. This ensures that all JOMAR Hosted clients can operate at peak efficiency for as long as necessary in the event that a switch over  to the DR site is required.

2005 – 2006

JOMAR continued to install ERP enhancements for its web-based Enterprise Software to support our new customers' operations in the U.S.A., Canada, Europe, Central America and their business operations in China. JOMAR installed and initiated project work in 42 Manufacturing plants and 25 Warehouse Distribution Centers for our integrated ERP and Enterprise Software:

Full Service Supply Chain Management (9), ERP (14), Customer Services (11), Inventory Control at the SKU, Lot and Piece level (15), Manufacturing Execution Systems (10), PDM Data Base (10); Financials – General Ledger (12), Accounts Receivable (12), Accounts Payable (12), Multi-company Financial Consolidation at a selected currency (3) and Costing (15); R.F. – Barcoding with Data Collection (13 – some have Touch-screen technology) and the Schedule Board (16).

JOMAR's JAVA and XML/XSL platform independent software component technology provided our customers with a choice of platforms to reduce their IT ownership cost. This gave JOMAR a competitive edge over other software vendors who locked-in their customers on a single platform and its pricing structure. It also made it difficult for JOMAR’s competitors who were gradually upgrading their software and therefore could not make a complete switch to another platform.

2001 – 2004

JOMAR’s owners continued their strategy of investing in the development of software enhancements and comprehensive Financial Software modules in 2001-2002 for our new and existing customers as they diversified their products and business processes to meet the challenge in the competitive global market.

 

The Canadian and U.S. professional staff of JOMAR installed new ERP releases for the web-based Enterprise and Financial Software applications to support our new and existing customers’ industry-specific and diverse business processes in customer services and manufacturing or warehouse/ distribution sites.

 

A new JOMAR customer base emerged that met the rising demand of engineered performance materials for the military and for fire or chemical protective fabric. Part of our traditional customer base diminished due to the off-shore pricing pressure on conventional consumer products in a rapidly changing global market.

 

Access to the Internet and our multi-platform server facility provided for global sales demonstrations of our web-based ERP and Enterprise Software application suite,  Conference Room Pilot sessions during software project implementation, and flexible training schedules to reduce travel time and the travel cost for our customers’ staff in different business or plant locations.
