Scholastic Canada publishes and distributes books for children. This case study studies the ways the company employs LANSA web solutions for distributing its books. The company transitioned from offline order receipts to online using LANSA tools. The paper studies the impact of employing LANSA on the operations of the business. The main effect of the transition was on the order receipt system. Use of LANSA for developing the company's first eBusiness application has also been discussed. The implementation of new system helped the company in curtailing its cost, reducing turnaround time and providing better services to its customers. The paper also delves into the methodology used by Scholastic Canada for developing customized system based on LANSA tools. The company also tried other programs, but none of them fit well with the organization. The LANSA program was initiated as a prototype and was tested using the services of about 50 teachers. The further steps were taken after receiving positive responses from the test group. The company also initiated ClubsOnline project. The paper also discusses the company's future plans for further integrating LANSA. The company is planning to use the tools for assisting its field representatives.
