Who is JPR?
We're a focused, goal-oriented communications agency that delivers measurable results.

Achieving goals in a market as dynamic as the high-tech business requires an agency totally focused on the technology, the companies playing in the arena and the editors and analysts that cover and influence the issues and buying decisions. It is critical that the agency chosen be goal-oriented and has a vested interest not only in delivering the results you expect, but in exceeding them.

It takes expertise in the business, a focused approach to technology clients, and an energetic, passionate agency team that prides itself on quality, personal service, ongoing research, credibility with the "influencers," and creativity.

It takes JPR to deliver measurable results.

Client synergies another plus
Since all JPR clients are technology focused, there is significant synergy. Many JPR clients have teamed up for strategic partnerships, bundled products, and joint sales calls. Because JPR understands that our clients often face similar channel and customer challenges, have complementary business and marketing strategies, and may share common competitors, we are privileged to help broker relationships between our clients when appropriate.

Acquisitions
Our goal is to raise visibility of your company and its products. We've been so successful at what we do that other companies have acquired various clients of ours for more than $4 billion.
