Case Study: Take 2

Take Two is a leader in providing automated information management products and services for administration in school districts and colleges across Canada.
Their Comprehensive Information Management System (CIMS) manages everything needed in a school division from Employee, Finance, Student, Public and Warehouse Management which enables Take Two to offer a very powerful combination of Software, Consulting, Development, Hardware Services, and Support. The business is celebrating it’s 30th year of operation in 2017 and prides itself in listening and reacting to customer needs.
Take Two sees Ariadne Software as a key business partner as it’s customers have successfully relied on the CoolSpools software suite for many years to convert their reports and images to pdfs, and to allow email/file transfer distribution from iSeries software. They have 11 districts across Canada from Manitoba to British Columbia using CIMS and CoolSpools, meaning thousands of users and millions of emails rely on it and couldn’t live without it!
CoolSpools Spool Converter and Email modules are 100% imbedded into the Take Two CIMS applications which:

  • Customers auto-email daily student attendance from 100’s of schools to 1000’s of parents.
  • Many emails convert reports and images to Microsoft Excel and Adobe PDF.
  • Take Two rely on CoolSpools for email/file transfer distribution.
  • And they create picture rosters:

Ariadne’s CoolSpools applications have been super-beneficial to Take Two who realised that CoolSpools was an ideal tried and tested development tool to integrate into all of their 5 CIMS modules.

And another huge benefit is a web application that draws from an original iSeries application that already had 100’s of reports created. Instead of re-designing they use CoolSpools convert spool file to PDF product and file transfer the PDF to their website to deliver to the end users…. 1000’s of reports a day that are now also enhanced with pictures!

Commenting on Ariadne, Take Two said: “The CoolSpools product and support team are excellent – emails are responded to quickly and appropriately, instructions are always clear. CoolSpools is a major utility that our customers are dead without! You meet our high standards of quality and support. We are happy to have you as a key partner!”
