About Our System

What Hardware and Software do I need to run the JMK Application System?
The JMK System is a client server system. That means that the application software runs on one computer, while the client or user interface runs on another computer

This is the same system used by the internet, the client (your PC) runs a program called a web browser which connects over a network to another computer (the server) which displays content to you.

The client PC or workstation, running any version of Windows or Linux, has a program on it supplied by JMK that allows it to connect over a network to the JMK Application Server. The server runs the Linux operating system

To summarize you need a PC, on a network and a server, the server can be connected to via the internet, and optionally can be provided by JMK, or you can have your own server on your local network

What is a computer network and how do I get one?
A computer network is 2 or more computers that are connected together. All you will need is the correct type of cable to connect them together and a hub or switch which acts as a central connection point. Almost all modern computers will already have a Network Interface Card (NIC) and the needed software built into your system as standard features.
How do I connect my multiple stores
Each store will need to have a broadband internet connection, such as DSL or Cable, JMK will provide the technical know how to connect your stores together over the internet

JMK utilizes a technology called Virtual Private Networking orVPN to connect your stores, this requires that a VPN router be setup at each location.

How much does your system cost
The typical dollar cost per location, amortized over a 5 year period, is less than that of a minimum wage employee on your staff, working the normal hours your stored is open each week!
In order to provide you with cost estimate JMK will need to perform a preliminary review of your requirements relative to our solution.

Do all my locations share the same inventory
That option is up to you. Most companies choose to have a common pool of items for all of their stores. Each store maintains its own data for quantity s, costs etc.
How do I maintain all of this technology? Do I have to add an IT staff position to my operation?
You have the option of retaining your own IT staff, but for most companies this is not a necessity. If you select the option of software as a service, where JMK maintains the server, all the typical server maintenance issues are handle by JMK, such as OS updates, security patches, data backup and recovery, etc. JMK can provide support at the server, network and desktop levels as desired, making the requirement of a local IT staff optional to your additional needs.
