FormRouter renews license agreement with Adobe to offer LiveCycle® Reader Extensions Service

Service supports applications that require advanced form usage rights

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."
