FormRouter announces new support for Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X and Unix

Upgrade leverages open development initiative (Mono Project) sponsored by Novell

CARY, NC (September 26, 2006) – FormRouter, a pioneer in hosted services for electronic forms, announced today new support for non-Windows environments including Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X, and Unix. FormRouter’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution enables non-technical subscribers to deploy intelligent PDF, HTML, Flash and other form formats in minutes with no servers and no programming. Upon submission, completed forms, optional attachments and entered data are routed securely to an electronic data store located on the form owner’s desktop in near real-time. “We have seen a growing interest in our forms business, especially from Macintosh and Linux users” says FormRouter CEO, Chris M. Pieper. “With this upgrade, we can now offer the FormRouter advantage to prospects running environments other than just Windows."

The FormRouter Client Tool enables one-click, secure download of form-collected data directly to popular database formats or text files. FormRouter founder and e-Forms evangelist Jim Healy commented, “As a native application running within the firewall, the FormRouter client tool offers a superior security model and the convenience of unattended 24/7 data retrieval. By leveraging the open source community, and the Mono project, we’ve been able to retain our security metrics while supporting a rapidly growing community of Macintosh, Unix and Linux users.”

Maureen Leech of Ohio based Wherry Associates commented, “We are just a small company that loves our Macs. The FormRouter service is really slick, but the Windows requirement for the retrieval tool was a sore point for us dedicated Mac users. It’s great to see FormRouter support the vocal minority.”

The Mono Project provides the necessary software to develop and run .NET client and server applications on Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X, Windows, and Unix. Sponsored by Novell (, the Mono open source project has an active and enthusiastic contributing community and is positioned to become the leading choice for development of Linux applications. FormRouter VP of Engineering Dave Conorozzo commented, “We have been following the Mono project with great interest as a creative way to offer cross-platform options to FormRouter customers. The software has really matured into a serious development platform.” To learn more about Mono go to
