JW Software 30th Anniversary

JW Software celebrates our 30th anniversary as the leading Claims Management and Third-Party Administrators Software in the industry. With software solutions you can trust as well as flexible and efficient services, JW has built and sustained relationships throughout our 30 years.

Started on January 2, 1989, by company President Jim Wieland, JW Software began in the basement of his home. Jim had been working in the software industry for several years until he decided to start JW Software, a custom business application developer for small businesses in the St. Louis area.

Jim’s first customer was in the insurance industry as a Third-Party Administrator and they worked together to develop a time-billing application that evolved into the 1st iteration of the FileHandler Claims Management Software.

30 years later, JW Software has grown into a nationally recognized Claims Administration Software Partner, that continues to grow both in sales and staff.


“30 years is an impressive milestone for any company in the technology/ software space. JW Software has to be one of the longest running software companies to serve the insurance industry today, which is pretty amazing.”

Nicholas Toal, VP of Business Development
