JPS' business is built around a native Internet application called Athene. Athene is a
"shell" program offering a toolkit full of advanced functions needed by a large cross-section
of business markets. Without programming skills or an extensive Information Services (IS)
group, subscribers are able to model objects in an intuitive graphical user interface and
by issuing personal logins share information with anyone they deem. The ability to model an
object is unlimited. Modeled objects can include people, customers, buildings, inventory,
or any other conceivable item. All application interaction is performed via the Internet
so Athene's availability is not an issue.
The ability to control each user's application authorities is provided with each login
account. Comprehensive account controls support the creation of accounts that match each
user's need-to-know profile. By issuing accounts for each business participant, all parties
can use the same set of information and tools. This is true regardless of geography or
company affiliation. Using Athene, the business tool can now be configured to fit focused
business situations without company structure constraints. This approach offers tremendous
potential for improving overall business efficiency and effectiveness by allowing all
parties involved in a business transaction to share the same set of information and business
JPS' "next generation" management tools and services include:
All without the communications barriers driven by geography or company affiliation.
- Information management
- Workflow processing
- Business collaboration tools
- Third party administration services
- Professional services
Built using today's best "Web focused" programming
languages and relational database tools, Athene serves-up a rewarding toolkit filled with
powerful business tools. Unlike many other products, Athene is an innate Internet
application. From the very beginning, Athene was designed to be native to the Internet
and therefore does not suffer from limitations resulting from "Web enabling" an older
application. At every step in the development process the needs driven by global
availability were considered, making it possible to offer a variety of unmatched features.
The flexible nature of Athene makes it well suited for many different business markets.
Using plug-in "personality modules," Athene function is tailored to meet specific business
needs. The basic toolkit includes:

- An intuitive user interface.
- Powerful information management tools.
- Unmatched collaboration features.
- Subscription based usage tools.
Building upon Athene's feature-rich toolkit, JPS offers a flexible
workflow processing service enabling Athene subscribers to model, track, and audit
business events following subscriber defined lifecycles. Without programming skills,
subscribers are able to model workflow, establish Time-to-Complete (TTC) commitments,
define automated escalation scenarios, and collect milestone disposition information.
Throughout an event's lifecycle, Athene provides clear ownership and responsibility
indicators while collecting records as work progresses.
Event initiators, contributors, and managers are all provided with a
concise picture of how their events are being handled. Using established service
commitments, any milestone approaching jeopardy is escalated to user-defined points. With
Athene's strong user account controls, workflow management can be performed without
traditional communication barriers created by location and company affiliation.

Wrapped around our application subscriptions, JPS offers optional third party
administrative services. Using optional services, collaborating subscribers can
mingle both private and shared information. As a disinterested third party, JPS administrative
services ensure everyone's privacy is maintained within an integrated working environment.
Subscribers can have JPS handle any part of Athene's
tool administrative duties.
JPS offers professional services designed to
fulfill the transitional needs of our subscribers. Moving to a new business model requires
planning and preparation. Our custom consulting and development services help make
conversions flow seamlessly.
Custom Development Services
While we have built-in an incredible amount of flexibility into our products, larger
customers sometimes need custom functionality to support existing information
sources and systems. Recognizing this, JPS offers custom "personality module" development.
Personality modules are used to tailor Athene function for unique business needs. This
can include integrating Athene with an existing customer database.
Implementation Consulting and Services
To help our subscribers smoothly transition to Athene, JPS offers implementation consulting
and services. Implementation consulting services help ensure our customers experience a
smooth transition to Athene. Our implementation services can be used to populate Athene's
initial database with customer provided data. This can involve "scripted" importing of
data from an existing database or manual data entry. Our consulting services can
be used to guide decisions about how best to administer Athene for the customer's
Customized User Training
Let us train your user base. Using customized training materials, JPS can provide
