Memorandum of Understanding forges a new partnership for Intellimedia and Jigsaw Collaborative Solutions

Intellimedia and Jigsaw Collaborative Solutions are pleased to announce a new partnership arrangement, forged by a recently signed Memorandum of Understanding.  The newly formed partnership will focus on the potential integration between Intellimedia’s Dossier software with the Collaborative Response Model System (CRMS), developed by Jigsaw Collaborative Solutions.  Working with mutual educational partners in Peace Wapiti Public School District, this collaborative endeavour is intended to be a pilot project to inform the future development of integrated software solutions.

Dossier is a powerful education management system with robust data analytic capabilities.  Integration with the SIS enables Dossier to combine data from various sources to produce student learner profiles that provide a comprehensive view to performance across multiple levels including individual, grade, school as well as district.  The visibility to achievement combined with other key data including attendance helps shape strategies to better meet individual needs. Dossier Inclusive Education improves management and tracking of Individual Program/Education Plans for Special Needs Students resulting in significant time savings and effective collaboration of resources.  

The Collaborative Response Model System (CRMS) provides an online digital solution for schools and districts that is aligned with the philosophical principles of the Collaborative Response Model, developed and shared by the educators at Jigsaw Learning.  In the CRMS, collaborative processes are utilized to coordinate supports for students, develop evolving student profiles, and manage collective workflow for school and district staff teams.

“In our quest to deliver solutions that maximize value for our clients, we are excited to partner with Jigsaw Collaborative Solutions,” said Ahmad Jawad, President and CEO of Intellimedia Inc.  “We look forward to leveraging the thought-leadership of JCS to enhance Dossier functionality to optimize the support of Collaborative Response Strategies.”

“Partnering with Intellimedia provides an excellent opportunity to merge programming and educational expertise to develop digital solutions that can support the great work happening in schools and districts to support students,” said Kurtis Hewson, Chief Executive Officer for Jigsaw Collaborative Solutions. “Ensuring educators have access to software that maximizes the power of the collaborative team aligns with our foundational values as educators committed to supporting the needs of all students.”

Heather Putio, Assistant Superintendent of Inclusive Services, remarked, “The potential for fluid management of the professional collaboration that we are dedicated to is very exciting for PWSD.  This partnership offers our staff a system that is customized to reflect and support the constructive, individualized professional conversations we commit to on a regular, scheduled basis.  This online digital system respects and reflects the organizational needs of our staff and reinforces an action-oriented focus within our Collaborative Response Model.   Congratulations Intellimedia and Jigsaw Collaborative Solutions!  PWSD looks forward to working together. “


This initial endeavour to create a Dossier-based module that reflects the core functionality of the CRMS for Peace Wapiti Public School Division is intended to serve as a first step for further potential partnership arrangements between Intellimedia and Jigsaw Collaborative Solutions moving forward.

Launch of Canada's newest allergy medicine: Allergy-FX

                                                                        For Release: TUESDAY, APRIL 19, 2016


TORONTO, ON. It’s wheezy, sneezy pollen time in Canada.  No laughing matter for millions of Canadians unless they’ve taken Canada’s newest allergy medicine - that’s the message of a six week TV campaign launching this week. The campaign is running on eighteen different mass and niche channels in English and French. 

The snappy, 15 second spots are simple. They show a woman sufferer in a room packed with allergy-triggering plants.  She’s a ‘prisoner’ tied up and laughs as shovelfuls of pollen are dropped into the room.  She doesn’t care because she’s taken Allergy-FX™ and she proclaims, “It works!”  Another ad shows a man tied in chains in a room with cats everywhere and he doesn’t care either.

Allergy-FX™ boasts it’s the only clinically proven, natural health product for multi-symptom-relief and it’s just hitting store shelves as another pollen season of watery eyes and runny noses begins.  Allergy-FX™ is the result of nearly 50 years of research and development in Europe.  And it lays claim that it’s naturally sourced because it comes from quail eggs.  

Trusted Health Group Marketing VP Susan Yorke says, “If you suffer from allergies, you know they’re not fun.  And we get it.  So we’re not poking fun at sufferers.  But we wanted them to know that help is on the way.  Canadians are getting a new, effective allergy medicine.”

Studies suggest the active ingredient in Allergy-FX™ works by stopping the immune system from overreacting to allergens like tree, grass, ragweed pollen, dust mites and pet dander resulting in symptoms like red, watery eyes and itchy, runny noses. Allergy-FX™ acts as quickly as fifteen minutes of an attack at the point consumers say they want relief.


Trusted Health Group (THG) plans two waves of TV ads to support the introduction of its newest product, Allergy-FX™. They are being complimented by a print campaign, primarily in the nation’s leading natural health magazines which was launched earlier this year. As part of the multi-pronged marketing campaign, THG allergy experts have been interviewed on radio health shows.

Experts estimate up to 10 million Canadians suffer from one kind of allergy or another. Allergies are the 5th leading chronic disease in North America, making them responsible for millions of ER and doctor visits and considerable lost work and school time.


Studio M is the creative agency on the campaign which was planned and executed by Mass Minority. The ads can be seen here:
