December 9, 2010 — Computer Associates (CAI) today announced that McVan, Inc., a leading manufacturer and wholesale distributor of religious-themed jewelry and gifts, has selected CAI’s JMAS Jewelry Manufacturing and Distribution Software.

Fred Adler, president of McVan said, “Our legacy software and associated hardware had not been enhanced for quite some time and it had become painfully evident that we needed to make a switch. Computer Associates’ team was methodical in their approach to understanding our business processes and managing the transition to JMAS. I was amazed at how everyone we dealt with at CAI seemed to understand exactly the issues we’d been dealing with and set about making sure those issues were resolved.”

JMAS is end-to-end Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) business management software for manufactures and distributors of jewelry and related products. The software provides a suite of integrated tools—tailored to peoples’ roles within each organization—that help them work smarter and more profitably. Whether you make fine or fashion jewelry, findings or chains, you'll make it faster, more efficiently and at a lower cost with JMAS.

“We signed a contract for the JMAS Software at the beginning of September and by the middle of November we were up and running with fully integrated business management software that seems like it was made just for us. We are extremely pleased with our decision to purchase the JMAS Software and to have the support of a knowledgeable, responsive partner that’s committed to our success,” Adler continued.
