(PRODUCT SUPPORT AND SALES)

Jim Convis

In 1991, Jim Convis spun off User Solutions from Lotus where he was adapting Lotus 1-2-3 to better serve the manufacturing market. Starting with a series of simple templates (found in Operations Manager, still available today), he found folks wanted to use familiar tools (such as the spreadsheet) as the preferred method to solve common production scheduling issues. For over 25 years, Jim has tried to listen to what customers were asking for and developing an architecture to support all types of challenges in all sorts of environments. Jim has a BS in Applied Mathematics/Physics from University of Colorado and worked at GM/EDS implementing the first Micro-Processor Cell Controller back in the 80’s. Prior to that, Jim worked as an Oil Driller in Oklahoma, Ranch Hand, Carpenter, and other interesting endeavors. Occasionally, a company will want something so specific and different that even our most flexible product can’t bend enough. In that case, we still can solve their challenges with affordable and quick custom programs on whatever platform (Windows, Cloud) makes the most sense for the customer. With a vision statement of “Listen and Deliver” you could add ‘guaranteed’ to complete our philosophy on making you successful. Thank you for considering User Solutions.
