Testimonials

  • Our organisation had been established 20 years ago and we are a partner of department of states in the bridge USA programs for cultural exchanges. We started using the Batch few years ago, before the solution was incorporated it was tedious and it took a lot of time for us to process one DS form for a participant. Since the time we started using the Batch Solution we have been able to drastically reduce the time of processing from several hours to just couple of minutes, this has helped our team to start focusing more on the actual program and to be able to support our participants more

Frequently Asked Questions

How do we trust our data is Secured?

All the data uploaded into J1FFY Batch is stored in our secured virtual machines hosted on Microsoft’s Azure Cloud data centre located in the east coast region of North America

All data uploaded are securely stored in the Azure database that can be accessed directly only from allocated machine IP ‘s from the network of OBS

The database is additionally secured by a combination of username and password that are available only with few authorized personnel

Any data that are transported over public domain are encrypted using Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol that provides a very strong authentication, message privacy, and detects any unwanted message tampering, interception and forgery so it protects from these data risks

The J1FFY Batch platform is also configured behind a HTTPS protocol so that it creates a secured channel for any data transferred to / from J1ffy Batch over an in secured network

All data uploaded in the database is available only for authenticated users from the client office

How long can I avail free trial?

Free trial can be availed for 2 weeks from the date of signup. You will be allowed to use 20 records per program during the free trial

Why do you need to provide us with SEVIS user name and program # ?

We need the SEVIS credentials for your test environments - alpha and beta to get started with your free trial.

We need this since we submit your test records automatically from the batches you upload to your alpha and beta environments in SEVIS. Once this step is completed, SEVIS gives back their response by sending back the corresponding DS forms that can be downloaded against each student record you uploaded

However please be informed that we will only need user name and program # for your test environments and WE NEVER ASK FOR YOUR PASSWORDS!

Can we upload batch data in our own templates

Yes. There are 2 options to upload batch data. If you are looking for an easy approach, you can download our standard template we provide, fill in your batch data and upload it. We will take care of rest of the process. But, if you are comfortable using your own template need not worry. We provide an option to upload your template to J1ffy Batch. In this case, you will need to manually map the headers in your template with the headers that J1ffy Batch provides. It’s very simple and once you are done with successful mapping of headers, save and proceed to next step. This is a one time activity since J1ffy Batch allows you to add it as a template and save it for your future uploads.

Why do you need us to upload PEM certificate and certificate # ?

We need a .PEM certificate since this is a security protocol defined by SEVIS system. It helps the system to secure the data we send from our system to SEVIS by forming a wrapper. Also each sponsor is identified by the unique PEM certificate # along with the combination of user name and program #. Hence it serves 2 purpose, one acting as the security layer and another one as an authentication mechanism

Will you help us in uploading PEM certificate on our SEVIS environment directly?

Yes, you can write to us in the form below and we will circle back to you as soon as possible. Please provide us with the correct email id we can reach you at and also a contact #.

When do you need our SEVIS program # and user name for production environment?

We need your user name and program # for the production environment at the time of subscribing with us. We need this since we will begin to submit your batch records to your production environment. Again, we need only your user name and program # and not your password. WE NEVER ASK FOR YOUR PASSWORDS!

Do you need our passwords for any of our SEVIS environments?

No, we don’t need your passwords for any of your environment. We only need the SEVIS program # and user name
