What does $.70/day (about the price of a cup of coffee) buy these days?

The subscribers to our JCSZip service receive each month:

The JCSZip Access 97 database and the logic supporting it.
(All the data from this site)

The complete content and logic supporting the
ASP pages for www.jcsm.com.
(Everything it takes to run these web pages)

NEW! our zip and area code conversion program
written in Access and Visual Basic for Applications.
(If you have Access 97, keep your Cities, States, Counties,
Zips, and Area Codes up to date)

NEW! Access based functions which implement or exceed
the functions on this web server with their database
already prepared to run on personal PCs,
or NETWORKED FROM A SERVER.
(If you have Access 97, duplicate or exceed
the capabilities of these web pages
on your local PC, and/or local area network).

NEW! Our C Linux version which runs without need of Database support. This is an inprocess work, but three functions are fully functional. Sources included. Try the 3 functions on our Linux server.

A reasonable amount of our technical support time
to ensure you can successfully install the components

We use, as a basis for our database, the United States Post Office (USPS) "City/State" File. We have purchased a subscription to their service, and purchased the ability to remarket the data to our customers, after we have formatted the information, and added our value added fields for Latitude, Longitude, (both used for distance calculations), area codes, and time zones (5% of the time zones (the tough ones) temporarily not available).

Because the USPS file on which we base our database is only available as an annual subscription, we offer the same to our customers. Just as our subscription with the USPS expires at the end of one year, and must be renewed at the then prevailing rates, our subscriptions with our customers will, too.

We receive updates from the USPS each month, and we apply appropriate changes to our value added data.

The USPS requires that we apply their changes within 105 days of receipt, and our customers must do the same.

Our database is implemented as an ACCESS database, and the logic to access the system, calculate distances, and display results are contained in the ACCESS database, and/or in the ASP pages supporting our web site, www.jcsm.com. If the ACCESS option is not desirable to the subscriber, the ACCESS information can be exported to comma delimited files, and reimplemented by subscriber personnel. Probably most easily implemented would be those who use Visual Basic, or similar systems, and those who use Microsoft based server systems. Of note, we supply all logic in source code form, and the customer personnel will not find portions of logic hidden from them, such that they will be locked to Jay Computer Services if they should want to change to another data source in the future.

The cost of an annual subscription is $249.

A simple subscription agreement can be downloaded here.
