Paramus, NJ - April 22, 2002 - Indus Consultancy Services (ICS) is pleased to announce that Direct Hit Data, a marketing automation service provider for foodservice manufacturers, has chosen Kronos Enterprise Scheduler to handle the scheduling needs of their organization.

Kronos Enterprise Scheduler is a full-featured job scheduling system written for Sunís Java2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) environment. Direct Hit plans to leverage the product as a key component in its overall enterprise application infrastructure. Having a manageable, yet reliable scheduling engine for enterprise development can save valuable developer time.

Feeling that job scheduling was a critical missing piece of the J2EE specification, Direct Hit looked for a 3rd-party solution, ultimately selecting Kronos Enterprise Scheduler because of its wealth of features. "We selected Kronos primarily for its feature completeness," said Frank Villarreal, Director of Information Systems for Direct Hit. "Having a job monitor, open API, and being pure Java were must-have features."

Kronos Enterprise Scheduler also offers a comprehensive set of scheduling options, powerful holiday definitions, job dependencies, administrative alerts, and J2EE security integration.

More information on Kronos Enterprise Scheduler can be obtained from the ICS website at or by sending an e-mail to Free 30-day evaluations of the product are also available for download.
