Our Past. Our Present. Our Future. Together.

Our Past

We started as a small single-person company in Toronto back in 2002. A small company in a big city with a big heart. Joy Neuhold, fresh out of business school, had a dream: use her consulting and software skills, her love for software, and her love for people, to help others develop confidence in using the tools that were becoming more and more important to the modern workplace.

Very often, “techie” people are most definitely not “people” people. Joy was different, and she wanted to help others develop their technical skills while also respecting and encouraging the interpersonal talents they already have.

Because of our high regard for people and for their confidence in using the training they receive, we’ve always made sure to offer a customized service and that all-important personal touch.

Her husband, Jon, soon joined her in helping carry out the training in his field of specialty: Excel and Access. His areas of expertise also include database management, so we started to provide database and consulting services together. Our clients have included individuals, companies both large and small, and government agencies of all sizes.

Our Present

Over the years, we’ve grown to add around Joy an entire team of trainers, consultants and administrative staff all devoted to the same goals. We’ve also added extra software courses to our curriculum. We began with Microsoft Office, but now we include Adobe courses, Programming, SharePoint, Power BI, and much more. In more recent times we’ve moved beyond offering only software skills training. Now we also teach professional skills. These courses help cultivate those interpersonal “people” skills that are so important. They help people work together better, they help teams function properly as a friendly and cooperative unit, and they help managers deal with the challenges of keeping everything running smoothly. Joy’s dream has developed beautifully.

  • Microsoft Office
  • Programming
  • Adobe products
  • SharePoint
  • Power BI
  • Professional Skills of many varieties
  • And more…

In recent years we’ve expanded beyond the Greater Toronto Area, offering sessions onsite or virtually across Canada, as well as at our training lab in Ottawa through our sister company, CompuEase, which we acquired in 2013.

  • GTA
  • National Capital Region
  • Nationwide online and onsite sessions

Our future.

Our core values and ideals haven’t changed at all; our new name better reflects what we’ve become.

Joy’s philosophy has always been to be the best we can, without ever having any kind of negative impact on our clients or our competitors. That continues. So does our desire to help your organization build on the talents of the people within it. You already have great people working for you. We’ll continue to work together with you to develop your skills and confidence even further.

JN Software’s new name: The Great Canadian Training & Consulting Company


Any organization is only as good as the people that contribute to it. That applies to your organization and to ours. Where we hope to help your staff become better at their software skills, workplace practices, and their feeling of self-worth and development, we also hope for the same ourselves. We want to do it together.

We are looking forward to what’s yet to come and to working together with you.

You may have been with us in the past and the present; well, we look forward to continuing to serve you, to work with you, to help you, in the future too.
