About: Overview

My first exposure to computer programming was in 1973-74 while attending college as an accounting and pre-law major. As part of my accounting curriculum I was provided the opportunity to code my first lines of code.

In 1985, I completed a specialized curriculum in computer programming and started my first full-time position as a computer programmer, continuing my education at night being awarded Associate in Science and Bachelors degrees ni Computer Information Science.

In 1994, I established JHZ-CS specializing in providing Internet solutions. The Internet was in its infancy just beginning to become available to the general public and businesses were anxious to establish their online presence.

JHZ-CS, established in 1994, providing application systems design and development providing expertise to businesses desiring to deploy Internet technologies to enhance their business. As a pioneer in the new digital frontier, JHZ-CS was structured as a sole proprietorship with a plan to stay in it for the long haul, as opposed to establishing a corporation as recommended by financial advisors. The corporate structure would require bringing others into the business decision process. These folks would not necessarily be equipped technically to grasp the many nuances of this new industry and potentially hinder the ongoing continuance when purchase offers began to surface in the future.

Persistence of objectives demanded acknowledging all requirements, including future requirements, going in from the get go. An offer to establish a partnership with silent partner had initiated the establishment of the company, but I ultimately declined the offer in light of future requirements. The necessity to maintain full control of the company quickly became obvious in light of the numerous nondisclosure agreements I had entered into, and the associated technological information I was aware of, would preclude making convincing arguments when necessary. The decision to go it alone as a sole proprietorship was difficult and was met surprising well with acknowledgement and appreciation of the position I had described.

The company name James H. Zisch - Computer Services was chosen and officially registered satisfying fictitious name requirements.

JHZ-CS's first client is a daily business newspaper established in 1886. This company's editor-in-chief contacted JHZ-CS with an interest in automating a series of daily functions involved in publishing activities complementing the objective of deploying a digital version of their daily publication online. Working closely with the editor-in-chief and his staff objectives were defined and the functional specifications designed. This very successful working arrangement produced a series of solutions providing support to the various editor-in-chief functions; including a comprehensive suite of functions from article selection, organized presentation and index of the news, automated news archival and index system, remote article upload, and article delivery to the hardcopy layout software in the print room.

JHZ-CS's next major client is a consumer electronics retailer with plans to take their business online. JHZ-CS established a solid relationship with this client under a working agreement allowing JHZ-CS to retain copyright ownership of the technologies it produced.

This business model proved effective for both JHZ-CS and its clients as well as future clients. In 1999, JHZ-CS began offering suites of ready-made fully customizable solutions online.

JHZ-CS considers it an honor and privilege to service the needs of its clients. If JHZ-CS may be of assistance to you and your organization in achieving its objections, please do not hesitate to contact me.
