Success Stories

The ultimate judgment on the quality of any company or product is made by its clients. We are pleased to have worked closely within the jewelry manufacturing and distribution industries for over thirty years and during that time to have serviced the computer software needs of importers, retailers, plating companies and findings companies as well. Our clients speak for themselves when it comes to their reasons for selecting Computer Associates as their IT partner and the JMAS solution as their primary application software. 


We looked at several different ERP software products and found that from a manufacturing perspective, JMAS was far and away the most robust solution. The fact that the software had been built from the ground up as a jewelry manufacturing solution and that it was backed by a team of knowledgeable consultants who seemed to immediately grasp every detail  of our operations made the decision an easy one for us.

As soon as a customer calls in with an order, we're able to record the order accurately, generate a detailed production order, record back-orders, handle assortments and distribution orders and make sure that product is delivered on spec and on time every time. JMAS has also really helped us manage inventory across each of our locations and all areas of daily operations, from production to delivery. We've improved our manufacturing efficiency and minimized back-orders and incorrect shipments, and we are much better able to track products whether they are shipped to customers in the U.S. or overseas.

We try to watch margins on everything we make and diligently track the cost of deliveries. We wanted a system that would help us be equally proficient about tracking the production costs

Computer Associates, Inc. is a key member of our Strategic Planning Business Team that has allowed me, as a business owner, to develop and manage my business over the past twelve years. Computer Associates had the foresight to develop Jewelry software that was not only compatible with where we were but where we wanted to be.

You're only as good as the people you work with. With CAI, we have a partner that truly understands our business and is able to consistently point out ways to improve productivity. In such a short time, I am amazed at how much the folks at CAI have taught us about the potential of our business. I truly didn't know what I didn’t know until I met these talented folks.

When we first looked at JMAS, it was evident immediately that the software was built for an operation like ours. In my head I remember thinking, 'that's right, that's right, that's right' over and over. With JMAS, we can enter and process orders twice as fast as with our old system and our bookkeeper has commented more than once how much easier it is to find information.

During the nearly twenty years that we have been associated with Computer Associates, their JMAS Jewelry Manufacturing Software system has been a crucial element in our growth and in the efficient and profitable management of our business. CAI's staff has successfully coupled their intimate knowledge of the jewelry industry with their software development expertise to develop a software system that will help our company to deal successfully with the competitive pressures of the new millennium.

JMAS provides a single-source IT solution that covers our business from the front counter where we service our wholesale walk-in customers to our production area and the back office. The software ties everything together. We can create purchase orders and work orders directly from a sales order with single point of entry, fast and simple, no errors. We pride ourselves on our ability to handle special orders for our customers and JMAS is integral to that service.

With any POS solution it’s about getting our customers in and out of the store as quickly and as efficiently as we can. With JMAS' point-of-sale system, were able to move our wholesale customers though the checkout process.

The JMAS software captures our operating expenses and provides a true picture of our gross margin. We get an accurate P&L for our manufacturing facility and can make adjustments in our production processes to improve business performance and ensure that we don’t leave money on the table.

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.

Fred Adler, President
McVan, Inc.


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.

Fred Adler, President
McVan, Inc.


We are extremely pleased with the software. It has allowed us to operate with much more visibility and control of our manufacturing processes. We can easily capture the actual number of hours and associated labor charges and then update the sales order with this data rather than the initial, estimated hours we assigned to the job.

Because JMAS is fully integrated throughout our entire operations, we've significantly simplified our sales order processing, metals inventory control, AR and AP as well as how we generate financial statements. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend JMAS - and the team at CAI - to any manufacturing services company looking to improve their business.
