Tone Software, a global provider of management and productivity solutions for IBM System Z mainframes, has announced that its complete line of z/OS Mainframe technologies has been tested and proven fully compatible with the JES3plus V1R0 spooling subsystem. The JES3plus software was made available through Tone's participation in the Phoenix Software International ISV Partner Program.

Tone Software is a global provider of business computing software that addresses mainframe productivity, JES Spool management, dynamic STEPLIB and ISPF library management, cross-platform output management, TSO optimization and enterprise automation.
