The Year was 1996. Sri Lanka won the Cricket World Cup and was acknowledged as a force to be reckoned with. That is exactly what Just In Time Group (JIT) is today! 1996 was the start to the JIT’s humble beginnings from selling Compaq computers from a basement office to a diversified giant in the ICT industry today where we focus on being a systems integrator (SI) offering state of the art, ICT solutions and services for the Banking, Government and Telco sectors. Founded by visionary ICT leader Jit Warnakulasuriya who had a vision for the Company which has far exceeded by what the Group is today. Today, JIT is still going strong, as a fully Sri Lankan Owned company. Along our journey, we continued to do things no one else had done before and played a significant role in the industry, today we are the backbone of critical systems and solutions in the country. From Supporting the Real Time Gross settlement system of the Central bank of Sri Lanka to the implementation and maintenance of the National Payment system at LankaClear (Pvt) Limited to the Digital Banking system at People’s bank, the list is endless.
