Warren SpillerWarren Spiller was living with his wife on the beautiful island of St. Thomas when he got his start in the technology field.  He and his wife moved there shortly after he graduated from the University of Florida to join his father and brother in a joint business venture.  Their company, a local food distributor, was the first company in all of St. Thomas to acquire and use a mini-computer.  Warren taught himself how to program it, and from then on, developing computer software became his passion and eventually, his career.  In 1976, Warren and his family moved to Atlanta, GA, where they still reside, and founded Success Systems, Inc. (SSI).  SSI developed ground-breaking industry-specific software applications including Order Processing & Validation, EDI, Marketing Tools, and Sales Analysis.  By the year 2000, SSI had grown from 2 to more than 40 employees, and had achieved the position of premier supplier of technology solutions for food brokers and consumer package goods (CPG) sales organizations throughout the USA and Canada.  

In 2000, SSI merged with a large publicly traded software company.  This left Warren in need of a new project, which is when he founded JRX Services.  Prior to the inception of JRX Services, his staff had the good fortune to work with the EDI software solutions offered by Softshare, Inc. (now Liaison Technologies).  They were so impressed with the quality of the EDI products, as well as the superior support, that the first action taken after forming JRX was to apply to become an Authorized Solutions Integrator for Softshare.  Now, as part of the Aurora EDI Alliance, JRX is still offering Softshare’s flagship products like the Liaison’s Delta/ECS software package.

Warren is known in the industry as having the ability to relate to a company’s needs and apply them to effective and functional computer applications.  He loves seeing a company successfully use the software product that he installed and implemented.  He values his client relationships and takes customer service very seriously, which is apparent by the sheer quantity of long term customers he serves.  He has clients as close as his own back yard and has traveled as far as Hawaii to construct sophisticated B2B data integration solutions.  When speaking with him, it is obvious how sharp and committed he is so it’s not a surprise how he has is able to earn his customers’ trust and maintain those relationships for many years.

Despite spending most of his life in the southeastern US, Warren actually grew up in New York, and you can still hear it in his voice.  On a more personal note, he has been married to his lovely wife for 50 years and considers himself to be a very lucky man.  This is very obvious when you see them together.  They enjoy traveling and try to take fun vacations together at least once a year.  Most recently they visited Australia and had the trip of a lifetime!  He is a big football fan and is passionate about the Florida Gators as well as the Atlanta Falcons.  With no immediate plans to retire, he is still very much enjoying an accomplished career and his own little piece of the American dream.
