We have been serving the NZ jewellery trade since Fred Sladen emigrated to Christchurch in 1896.
Our involvement with computing began in the late 1970s when we replaced our aging book keeping machine with a primitive computer and some custom software. The software was so buggy that in the course of frequent calls to the developer I learnt enough to modify it myself and eventually completely rebuilt it.
In 1986 after discussions with local retailers I began building JCT. The first shop adopted JCT in 1987 and it continues to this day. The software has evolved continuously over that period in response to user requests and to take advantage of advances in computer technology.
