FormRouter and Adobe Team to Offer Expanded Subscription Pricing for LiveCycle™ Reader® Extensions Service

New subscription pricing targets small and medium business, non-profits and departmental decision makers

CARY, NC — June 7, 2005 — FormRouter, Inc. announced today new subscription pricing for its LiveCycle Reader Extensions Service for organizations seeking to deploy PDF forms with advanced usage rights such as digital signatures and ability to fill and save offline.

FormRouter became the first PDF Application Service Provider (ASP), to be licensed by Adobe, to activate PDF usage rights via Adobe Reader software as a for-fee service in October 2004. “Market reaction to our LiveCycle Reader Extensions service has been strong, however the one-price-fits-all approach has kept many small and medium sized organizations from realizing the power of rights enabled PDF forms,” said Chris M. Pieper, CEO and Chairman for FormRouter. “With our new subscription pricing options, LiveCycle Reader
Extensions unlocks now start at under $500. “

Part of the Adobe Intelligent Document Platform, LiveCycle Reader Extensions allows organizations to enable 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 in Adobe Reader, users can access advanced features such as 2D barcodes, digital signatures, and offline save. Once the document is submitted or closed, these special rights are disabled until the user receives another rights-enabled PDF file.

The FormRouter subscription service allows individuals with no technical experience to convert existing PDF documents into secure, Internet hosted forms in minutes, with no programming and no hardware installation. As PDF forms are submitted, encrypted results are routed directly to the form owner's desktop saving time and eliminating errors caused by manual rekeying. Documents that require extended-rights can be enabled by FormRouter and deployed using the FormRouter service and/or Adobe’s LiveCycle server solutions.

“The new pricing options should be particularly attractive to smaller organizations that want to extend the benefits of LiveCycle Reader Extensions to their customers, partners and suppliers,” said Eugene Lee, vice president of product marketing, Intelligent Document Business Unit at Adobe. “By deploying solutions based on the Adobe Intelligent Document Platform, enterprise organizations have been able to experience increased return on IT investments through extending document-based processes outside the organization. FormRouter’s ASP service and their new subscription based pricing should create opportunities for non-profits and small to medium sized businesses to experience these same
benefits by deploying intelligent PDF documents and forms.”
