Are you getting the most from your IBM i environment? Is your data managed, extracted and communicated in the most efficient manner? Or do you feel like your IBM i databases and spool files could be working harder for you?

If so, the CoolSpools (https://coolspools.com/) software suite could be just what you need, as we provide IBM i information management.

Developed by IBM as400 experts Ariadne, CoolSpools is the complete IBM i information management solution. With CoolSpools you can manage emails, administer spool files, and convert database and spool extracts to IBM i PDF, Excel, XML, HTML and many other formats.

Here’s an overview of the four powerful packages on offer from CoolSpools – and how they could help you make the most of your IBM i environment…

Database extracts to suit you

Extracting information from your IBM i database into Excel, HTML or XML is so much easier thanks to CoolSpools Database. All as400 database files are supported, and if used in conjunction with CoolSpools Spool Converter it can even extract data from your database into PDFs.

Spool file administration

Get full control over your IBM i spool files with this powerful administration software. With automated conversion, distribution and management tools, the ability to work with online AS/400 spool files, plus the option to run the same command against multiple iSeries spools, you’ll have unprecedented, unparalleled control over your IBM i spool files.

Convert spool to Excel, PDF and more… 

Perhaps the most impressive of CoolSpools’ tools is its spool file converter. Convert spool to Excel, PDF or XML. Split your as400 Excel files or PDFs into multiple documents – or append them to existing documents. Insert conditional formatting into IBM i Excel files, or images into your iSeries PDFs. There’s so much it can do – and it’s so easy to use.

Flexible email management tools 

Once you’ve converted your IBM i spool file to your required format, such as iSeries PDF or Excel, you’ll want to ensure the right people receive the right files, and at the right time. Here’s where CoolSpools’ email management software comes in. The software is highly customisable, allowing for up to 32 attachments, and emails can be sent via the command line or from programs via API.

Each of the four pieces of CoolSpools software can be purchased individually, but buy them together and not only will you have a complete as400 informational management suite at your fingertips, but you’ll also make huge savings.

So what are you waiting for? Take control of your IBM i environment with CoolSpools software and you won’t believe you ever managed without it.
