FormRouter upgrades Salesforce.com
Integration to support Intel's Mobile Forms initiative
CARY, N.C. -- FormRouter, Inc. announced today new options
for users to deploy off-line mobile forms. The new Mobile
Forms Technology (MFT), developed through a joint initiative
with Intel Corporation, allows mobile professionals to collect
data and submit forms while disconnected from the Internet.
Submitted forms are preserved in the mobile users MFM-Outbox
until an Internet connection is detected. Once connected,
offline form submissions are routed from the mobile desktop
to a remote database specified by the form designer/owner.
Submitted forms are preserved in the mobile users MFM-Sentbox
and may be edited, printed and/or re-submitted at a future
According to FormRouter CTO Jim Healy, "To support off-line
mobile forms we needed to combine Intel's mobile technology,
FormRouter's ASP service and Adobe's LiveCycle(TM) Reader(R)
Extensions into a single integrated solution. Mobile professionals
can now go off-line and continue to work with PDF and HTML
forms without worrying about Internet connectivity. Our integration
with salesforce.com allows any field on the form to be delivered
securely to the organization's salesforce.com account as soon
as an Internet connection is detected."
Chris Thomas, Chief Strategist for Intel, commented, "FormRouter's
ability to bundle low-cost Reader Extensions, a secure form
delivery service and real- time integration with salesforce.com
is unique. With the integration of Intel's mobile technology,
people can stay productive even when they are disconnected
from the Internet."
Building on the theme of "no programming required",
the technology upgrade allows non-technical users to rapidly
deploy a wide variety of "home-grown" forms that
are integrated with salesforce.com and Multiforce.com -- including
custom fields. As completed forms are submitted, the results
are securely posted in real-time to the form owner's salesforce.com
account. Some or all of the submitted data may be added to
email alerts and/or electronically delivered to a remote database
for backup and post analysis.
According to Healy, "This new capability should be
really attractive to users who don't have the means, time
or desire to work with the Sforce.com application programming
About Adobe(R) LiveCycle(TM) Reader(R) Extensions
Adobe(R) LiveCycle(TM) Reader(R) Extensions allows organizations
to unlock advanced forms-processing features within the free
and ubiquitous Acrobat(R) Reader software at no extra cost
to end users. When a rights-enabled PDF document is opened,
users can access advanced features such as digital signatures,
2D bar-coding, filling and submitting data electronically,
and offline save. Once the document is submitted or closed,
these special rights are disabled in Reader until the user
receives another rights-enabled PDF file.
FormRouter became the first service provider, licensed by
Adobe, to activate PDF usage rights as a for-fee service in
October 2004. In November 2005, FormRouter announced new subscription
options for LiveCycle(TM) Reader(R) Extensions starting at
under $125 per page.
FormRouter's hosted service lowers cost, saves time and simplifies
the deployment of online forms. FormRouter subscribers can
deploy forms of all types in minutes with no servers and no
programming. Submissions are delivered securely to the form
owner's desktop and loaded directly into Microsoft Access(R),
SQL Server or any ODBC compliant database. Integrated alerts
support e-mail notification, PDF workflows, payment thru VeriSign(R)
and Authorize.Net(R) and salesforce.com integration. For more
