The Expansion

The transformation of JW Software’s headquarters was more than a construction project: It furthers the corporation’s mission and values, setting the course for the next generation of employees, and products to grow. The major components of the transformation project included the addition of 6 new office spaces, the addition of all new workstations, a new kitchen, additional employee bathroom, and a second conference room.

“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.” – Missouri Department of Economic Growth.
