Happen Business Company Overview

Happen Business Pty Limited is a privately owned company founded in Australia, to commercialise, develop and sell the mission-critical business application (including a back-office accounting system) known as Jim2® Business Engine.

Jim2 Business Engine is the core product in our line of business software. Although Jim2 Business Engine includes a full accounting back-end, its primary focus is to provide a front-end interface to manage business workflow, business processes, and to provide a quality system framework.

Most established business software applications are primarily developed to produce a set of financial records and do not focus on how businesses created that result. There is a void from these products to focus on and manage the process with real data and not just watch the bottom line. In fact, they are primarily designed to inform management of a company's financial condition long after it has conducted its business.

In contrast, Jim2 Business Engine adopts a business perspective on workflow processes, managing, tracking and controlling the inputs that drive the financial result. Jim2 Business Engine then also goes on to producing a set of financial records.

Jim2 Business Engine technology was designed by Paul Berger (now Technical Director) and the staff at P2 Computing Pty Limited. The original Jim (DOS version) was developed in 1990, out of a desperate need to find some decent software to run our own business. We couldn't find anything appropriate so we wrote our own.

The original Jim was in constant use for nine years. We couldn't find anything appropriate so we wrote our own.

With the introduction of Windows, and the (then) need to cater for Y2K and GST issues, we set about redesigning the original Jim in 1998. Both Jim and Jim2 Business Engine were used in tandem during the development/alpha test stages of the new version.

Jim2 Business Engine now represents a substantial move away from running small to medium sized businesses via standard accounting software.
