FormRouter renews license
agreement with Adobe to offer LiveCycle® Reader Extensions
Service supports applications that require advanced form
CARY, NC (February 6, 2007) - FormRouter, Inc. announced
today that it has renewed its license agreement with Adobe
Systems Incorporated to offer Adobe® LiveCycle® Reader
Extensions as an ASP service through September 2008. FormRouter
is currently the only service provider, licensed by Adobe,
to activate customers within North America.
“The new LiveCycle Reader Extensions capabilities in
Acrobat® 8 Professional are a feature bonanza for users
with low-volume forms. But for many Business-to-Consumer [B2C]
applications, reaching out with high-volume forms will require
an unrestricted LiveCycle Reader Extensions license. In addition,
many customers will require expert assistance or training
to program advanced features into their Reader Extended forms
before deployment,” said James Healy, CEO, FormRouter.
LiveCycle Reader Extensions allow organizations to unlock
advanced forms-processing features within the free and ubiquitous
Adobe 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, and offline
local save. Once the document is submitted or closed, these
special rights are disabled in Adobe Reader until the user
opens another rights-enabled PDF file.
Using Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional, form designers can enable
Adobe Reader users to participate in document reviews, digitally
sign documents, and fill and save PDF forms. Users completing
a rights-enabled form (enabled using Acrobat 8 Professional)
via Acrobat 8 Professional must be running Adobe Reader 7
or higher, and data collection is restricted to either 500
users or 500 completed forms. Applications that require support
for past versions of the Adobe Reader (Version 5.1 and higher),
greater number of users or forms, and advanced usage-rights,
such as template spawning, file attachments, and SOAP enabling
(web services), can be achieved through an unrestricted Adobe
LiveCycle Reader Extensions license. Unrestricted LiveCycle
Reader Extensions licenses may be acquired through Adobe or
through FormRouter (Adobe licensed Reader Extensions Service).
"FormRouter's LiveCycle Reader Extensions service is
a recommended alternative for organizations that require advanced
usage rights but are unable to deploy a full enterprise solution,"
said Brian Wick, group product marketing manager, Adobe. "We
are pleased to renew this license agreement to extend LiveCycle
Reader Extensions capabilities to a broader range of organizations."
FormRouter's hosted service lowers costs, 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 databases
including: Lotus Notes® Domino®, Microsoft Access®,
SQL Server, or any ODBC compliant database. Integrated alerts
support: e-mail notification, PDF workflows, salesforce.com
integration, and online payments through VeriSign® and
