A Message from our Founder Time And Experience Working For You. Over the years, we have come up with a variety of tools you can use right now to make your life a little easier and your business more productive. Writing an excellent business or marketing plan, or a comprehensive safety manual; drafting an important agreement—these used to be boring, labor-intensive projects to be avoided at all costs. They were big, time-consuming projects that were hard to get started, difficult to do well, and sometimes impossible to finish. Frankly, I’d rather spend my time talking with customers, developing and improving our products and services, and have some time left to enjoy my life. But these things must be done.
I talked with friends and other entrepreneurs and discovered that I wasn’t alone. I wasn’t the only one who needed a better solution. I hated the business plans I read. I was burned out working for companies that treated employees like cattle. I was tired of reading documents I couldn’t understand without professional help. So, I took matters into my own hands. I wrote the original BizPlanBuilder back in 1988. Each of our subsequent products evolved out of our own needs as a growing business.
You don’t even have to learn how before you start By the time you read a few books, take a seminar and talk to some experts, you probably won’t have much energy left to do the job. With JIAN software, it works the other way around. By the time you’re done using our software, your project will be complete and look great. You’ll know all you need to know about the subject as it relates to your business, without a lot of extraneous interrogation, theory and expense. All things considered, I think you’ll find our software tools will save your sanity as well as your time and money.
We didn’t just fall off the turnip truck Our products draw on the experience of successful business professionals crossing nearly every industry and business model imaginable, as well as feedback from thousands of customers. We’ve sold more than 650,000 copies of our software worldwide since 1988, and every day we receive success stories and input from our customers who tell us we’ve done it right. They also offer suggestions for ways we can do it even better next time.
Try any of our products and you’ll discover feature-rich, productivity-enhancing tools that will revolutionize the way you work. It’s an unbeatable combination of ideas, direction and examples you can use right now. And, if for any reason our software doesn’t work for your business, you’ve got 60 days to send it back. With JIAN software, you’ll successfully complete these essential business projects in a fraction of the time it would take starting from scratch. When you use JIAN products, you’ll free up more time for other activities that will make you money. (Or go play.)
Thank you for doing business with us.
