Filling out and filing forms is one of the most time-consuming processes in the workplace. Many businesses have created forms to meet a multitude of external and internal needs ranging from vacation requests to bid submissions, creating what some define as necessary grief. Solution providers can ease those tasks and garner profits by turning paper forms into electronic solutions with OmniForm Premium 5.
OmniForm provides the muscle to create electronic forms, which can be filled out and delivered in multiple ways. The product combines a database with a form-design tool to build the key elements of an electronic form.
Other options include e-mailable forms or remotely hosted forms. CRN Test Center engineers put OmniForm Premium 5 through its paces to see just how quickly and easily solution providers can expect to solve the paper forms dilemma.
When deploying the solution, designers must first decide on the most likely method for filling out forms. ScanSoft provides a companion product for network users, called OmniForm Filler, which is used to fill out forms created by OmniForm Premium. The quickest way to create electronic forms is to scan existing paper forms.
OmniForm handles that task quite well with the wizard-based Form Assistant, which quickly identifies labels and fields on a paper form. Solution providers then can choose to further design the form for field logic or simply treat the form as a fillable template. Forms also can be designed from scratch. Designers are presented with a blank slate and can populate the form with labels, fields and images.
Fields come in two forms,text and comb. Text fields are used to capture inputted data, while comb fields are used for input with a prescribed set of characters, such as domestic phone numbers or license plate numbers. ScanSoft could simplify form creation further by allowing designers to include a label with each data field, as the product currently requires designers to create a text object in front of a data field to act as a label. Table creation, another powerful tool the product offers, allows for the creation of invoices or other forms driven by tabular data.
Again, table creation could be simplified by offering wizards to populate tables with meaningful object names and to quickly copy formulas from cell to cell. Currently, designers must do those tasks by hand.
Designers will find a host of wizards and tools to ease form creation, ranging from sample fields to granular field control to complex calculations. Designers will also appreciate the abundance of options to control data entry and form logic.
Calculations are handled by a Microsoft Excel-like formula tool, and complex formulas can be created quickly, easing tasks such as calculations in tables for invoices or other data-driven forms.
Once a form is finalized, designers can choose to save it one of several different formats. One powerful option is to save a form as a PDF file, which can ease form delivery for users who need to fill out a form and then print it,a great alternative for customer service forms or those that require a signature. OmniForm Premium provides support for digital signatures using PKI or Entrust authorization, making digital forms legally binding and eliminating the need for paper altogether.
OmniForm Premium includes 20 seats, and the cost of additional seats varies. The product includes e-mailable fillers. ScanSoft also provides five hosted forms for a year at eOmniForm. The product's robust feature set and quick startup time make for a solution that almost any forms-driven business can appreciate. By Frank J. From our advertisers.

Forms can also be designed from scratch. Wizards and tools ease creation of forms, from sample fields to complex calculations.
