It is aimed to denote that at JIK Solutions (JIKS), we aim to create easy-to-use simple low cost software solutions based on existing software and open source software with shorter development time relative to more expensive alternatives with longer implmentation periods.

Regrdless of what industry your business competes in, if you are looking for a software solution (large or small) for whatever reason (improve your business performance, stay ahead of your competitors etc. ), we can help.

Our services focus on integrating the capabilities of the existing Microsoft Office software to deliver a powerful hybrid software solution with a rich set of capabilities that otherwise would be difficult if not impossible. In addition, there are so many low cost commercial and free software tools avaliable on the Internet (open source software such as PHP, MySQL) that can be integrated to further enhance the software solution. We certainly don't want to go to the trouble of reinventing the wheel. Since our software solutions are build on existing software, they always cost less. Once you know how to handle Microsoft Office software and email, you find that our software solutions are easy to use, fast and effective.

What does EPSS mean? Electronic Performance Support System (EPSS), by definition, means that it supports the user by making the technology to work for the user all the way through a process helping the user to perform better. It is a task enabling electronic system which provides the necessary information and guidance on demand and helps the user to perform the task without outside help.

Therefore, companies using process-oriented contracts such as the New Engineering Contract (NEC) (now in its third edition NEC3) can gain substantial benefits by using software support solutions especially designed using the EPSS approach.

We have already designed two low cost software solutions using the EPSS approach for:

  1. Contract compilation
  2. Contract administration
These are generic modules which can be customised to suit your project needs very quickly. We are the only company delivering solutions based on existing software (low cost) for NEC3 using the EPSS approach (high value).See EPSS solutions for NEC3.
