Cloud computing is a term that has gained much popularity in the past year or two, and is now the driving force behind several web development and IT-based companies. Interestingly enough, we thought it would worthwhile to note that JB Systems started with this technology from our humble beginning.
In 2003, we leased our first dedicated server and began hosting our websites on a server we couldn’t physically touch. Our competitors laughed at this, scoffing at us because our servers “weren’t local” and that we couldn’t maintain our machines efficiently.
Well, the year is 2010 and most, if not all, of our competitors have moved their hosting platforms to data centers, hence using this notion of cloud computing. The irony here is what we find funny.
Trend setters… perhaps we are. More next time.

After a long wait, I’ve finally arrived at my cozy desk at JB Systems with iMac in place and ready to rock!!
For those of you who aren’t familiar, I’m the newest addition to JB Systems. Basically, this means that JB Systems’ clients can access my marketing, graphic design, and writing skills whenever, wherever…ok, almost. But the point is – I’m here as a resource for our clients so I hope that you’ll take advantage of that. My goal is to make sure that our clients’ websites do exactly what they want them to do – that includes using the coolest, newest technologies and creative marketing ideas, but also making sure that your online (and even offline) marketing is measurable, targeted, and relevant to your customers.
I would also like to say that I couldn’t be more psyched to be working with Jerry, Meghan, and the whole crew at JB Systems – talk about a powerhouse of talent! You’ll never hear “no, we can’t do that” and I think that’s a true testament to their dedication to their clients and their expertise in their fields.
Now that I’m here, feel free to contact me anytime…about marketing, how to get the best results from your website, or if you just need a break! You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 715-830-9375.
Hilsen, (yes, I speak a little Norwegian)
JB Systems’ newest e-commerce site COUNTRYSIDE LEFSE has had a tremendous first season, accumulating gross sales in access of 3 times its cost within 60 days.
Being a relatively straightforward e-commerce site, the developers at JB Systems provided a cost-effective solution catering to one goal: Create the most easy-to-use Lefse-ordering website online. Period.
Using technologies such as security certificates from Comodo, our newest billing and shipping technologies, as well as UPS integration for quick & easy label printing – JB Systems went to work. After 60 days of being live, and having paid for itself in that time period – we’re proud to say mission accomplished.

JB Systems had the opportunity to sit on the CVTC advisory board this past week, and provide input for curriculum for students interested in programming, database designing, web development, and more.
“This opportunity is great and allows the employers of the Eau Claire area to provide some input for instructors to hopefully incorporate into their material.” – Gerald Bauer, owner of JB Systems.
JB Systems is currently considering a partnership with CVTC to allow their students to work on “real life” projects – direct from industry.
