What Our Clients Say
It was so great to touch base with you again after all these years. I remember my introduction to the PICK Operating System over 20 years ago when I was barely 20 years old. I took the Introduction to PICK and PICK Basic Programming classes from JES at Bill Thurmanís offices in beautiful Laguna Hills, CA. I was there for two weeks and returned with my shiny new souvenir PICK Pocket Guide signed by Jon Sisk. I still have that little piece of history!
Fast forward to today when Iíve just completed another training session from JES led by Jon Sisk, my PICK hero, and Harvey Rodstein, another idol in the PICK community. Times have changed! I now work for a company in Grandview, Missouri and we have 6 programmers spread out from Missouri to California in two different time zones. When we decided we needed some training for our conversion from mvEnterprise to D3 we looked at a couple of options, both requiring travel for at least half of our staff even if we held training onsite. I remembered JES from my previous experience and decided to look up Jon Sisk. Low and behold Jon was still around and still in business. Thank goodness some things never change! Jon proposed doing web based training split up into small segments, an hour or two at a time. No one has to travel or even leave their desk for this training. It would be accomplished using GO-TO-MEETING and a conference call. Our six developers were able to attend class two times a week for an hour and a half without disrupting their normal work schedule. No travel required. Also, since everyone in our group has 20+ years each experience in the PICK arena we werenít looking for a canned class that covered what the trainer decided to cover. We were able to write our own agenda and let the learning happen as we discovered what our conversion needs were. We were also able to customize the class and the participants based on the subject for the day.
This was the most effective and convenient training Iíve ever received. The cost was minimal, especially compared to what it would have cost our company to send six people to a remote sight that took them away from the business.
Thanks again for a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend JES for training; not only for the great value but also for the invaluable expertise you bring to the table.

I needed for a new hire to be quickly educated in PICK/Basic programming, and I wanted it done in the most cost- effective manner I could find. Having known Jon Sisk for more than 22 years, and aware of his knowledge of PICK, I contacted him. He told me about his new ď1-on-1 Online TrainingĒ, and how efficient it would be to keep the student in our offices, with a head set and network connection, and save the cost of travel. In a matter of 10 hours, my new hire wrote, from the ground up, a mail-merge application that brought five different files and formats together to provide one combined mailing list. Iím sold on ď1-on-1 Online TrainingĒ with JES.

Jim followed up with this:
That mail-merge project was so timely, going right to press with the resultant output of that program. We sent out a mailer to over 65,000 New England customers, advertising the recently completed Fishfest, which ran March 22-25. It was the most successful Fishfest we have ever had, with sales up 45% over last year. Since the files that we merged were results of people who actually shopped with us, as opposed to "prospects",
I'd like to think that we reached the right people with that mailing.

From the student: There was a perfect possibility to have a course beside the normal working day. It was in digestible lessons which could be reproduced and repeated during day.
From the company: No traveling and hotel costs. Thomas was all thetime 100% at work and was doing the course after work. As he was doing the course in his office we were able to check what he learned, give him already during the course period unspecific work, so he could repeat the lessons. Even if it is sometimes hard to have a discussion without seeing the face of the other this way of training is always worth while.
