25 APR 2011 – MVP Systems Software, Inc., a leader in enterprise batch job scheduling and workload automation software, has integrated voice and SMS communications into JAMS, powered by Twilio.

Communication methods today go far beyond standard email. Most users rely on portable devices for critical updates. The integration of Twilio with JAMS Job Scheduler provides customers with notifications through voice calling and SMS text messages to ensure users are immediately aware of critical issues.

JAMS Job Scheduler goes beyond the simple receipt of a call or text message and actually allows for two-way communication. This allows users to respond to critical issues reported by JAMS from their portable devices. For example, if JAMS notifies a user of a critical job failure, the user can restart that failed job from anywhere by pushing a couple of buttons on their smart phone.

“No one jumps out of bed for an email. But the phone ringing at 2AM will get your attention,” states John Vottero, Senior Developer at MVP. “Seeing as some of the most critical batch processing occurs during the off hours, it’s extremely important to know immediately if there are any issues. The added support for voice and SMS response is just one more way for JAMS to keep you informed.”

MVP Systems Software will be demonstrating its Voice and SMS integration as an Exhibitor at Microsoft TechEd on May 16-19 in Atlanta. During MVP’s presentation, attendees will be able to see JAMS in action and receive a sample JAMS alert on their phone and respond accordingly.

“From its inception, JAMS Job Scheduler was envisioned as the most flexible and powerful enterprise job scheduling platform that can easily manage the various business processes of our customers. Leveraging leading edge technologies like Twilio, Windows .NET, PowerShell, and Windows Workflow, the vision of JAMS as the industry’s most powerful and flexible workload automation platform continues to become a reality,” said Rick Smith, Vice President at MVP Systems Software.
