FormRouter Upgrade Enables Offline Data Entry For PDF Forms

Offline PDF forms can be retrieved, edited and saved prior to electronic submission of completed forms

CARY, N.C. (March 30, 2004) – FormRouter, Inc., announced today new capabilities for FormRouter customers to collect form data from offline users using Acrobat® Reader® 5.1 and higher. With the new technology, users can distribute and circulate PDF forms to remote users for data entry, review and validation. Form owners can quickly browse through completed forms using integrated navigation or save work-in-process to their local drive for future completion, submission and/or data archival. Once completed, forms can be submitted electronically and routed to the form owner’s desktop database using the FormRouter service.

FormRouter’s new LocalSaveSM capability allows large and small organizations to realize the benefits of secure form routing even when they are not connected to the Internet. “The combination of FormRouter and Acrobat Reader has made Internet hosted forms a cost effective reality that can be realized in minutes with no programming,“ says Jim Healy, chief technology officer for FormRouter. “Unfortunately, many people who need to collaborate and complete forms may have limited Internet access. LocalSave extends the FormRouter advantage to the offline world as well.”

“We conduct a wide variety of human factors surveys and usability testing for clients such as Dell, Cisco and Sony Erickson,” says Laurie Gray, senior usability specialist for HumanCentric Technologies. “We see real value in using Acrobat Reader and PDF forms to conduct offline surveys. FormRouter has provided our team with the design and data capture flexibility we require for several years now. They have been responsive in listening to our requirements and we believe the LocalSave upgrade is going to make us more effective in conducting our surveys.”

FormRouter LocalSave comes standard with the company’s newly introduced ProPack upgrade. “With this new release, our PDF customers can also leverage our new CRM integration with and our secure payment processing with VeriSign and Authorize.Net,” says FormRouter CEO Chris M. Pieper. “Our customers can realize even more return on investment - with no programming, no servers and no drain on the company’s IT resources.”
