Today, the Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) announced that JW Software, Inc., a custom software developer and designer, will be expanding in Sunset Hills with plans to create over 10 new jobs over the year. JW Software is also actively exploring a new building for its corporate headquarters.
JW Software started in the basement of Missouri native, Jim Wieland, who began his company by writing custom business applications for small businesses in the St. Louis area. After working on the development of a custom solution for a client, Jim recognized the need for this type of software solution in the market– and JW Software’s flagship product FileHandler was born.
FileHandler is a browser-based claims administration tool designed to help manage multiple lines of business such as, Worker’s Compensation, Auto, Liability, and Property Claims.
JW Software chose to grow where it originated because of Missouri’s close proximity to its client base, the availability of business-friendly initiatives like the Missouri works program, and because the ample talent pool of information technology candidates from local Missouri universities provide the ideal location for a customized software solutions business.
The company is focused on growing the business and plan to do this by diversifying their product offering by researching and developing new products for the market. This year, JW Software is launching their newly developed FileHandler Enterprise Claims and Risk Management System which adds several new features to their current system such as business intelligence for claims and risk managers, an enhanced dashboard to track claims, added security functions and the ability to quickly customize workflow.
