JMS Enters the 2022 Jonas Annual Innovation Awards with iMetal’s Mobile Warehousing/Processing Module

Innovation should be encouraged, and no idea is a bad idea.

Suggestions for improvements can come from any area of a business as well as your existing customer base (who else knows what they want better than the customers themselves). At Jonas Metals, we are constantly pushing to develop our product to continuously improve the functionality and user experience to keep up with the ever-changing requirements of the metals industry. This drive for innovation is shared and actively encouraged within the wider Jonas group and this year, JMS entered our mobile warehousing module for the Jonas Annual Innovation Award. Whilst we don’t want to sound too optimistic at this early stage, after the first round of voting we are currently in first place for the award at our group’s annual business awards which will be held on January 27th, 2023. We will provide an update once the results are in.
