ColumbiaSoft combines advanced forms processing with document management in new connection with PerfectForms
PerfectForms and ColumbiaSoft announce new agreement that connects electronic forms technology with advanced forms processing in Document Locator.
Portland, Ore. – March 27, 2014 - The combination of two technologies at the center of modern business automation – electronic forms and document management, has led PerfectForms and ColumbiaSoft to announce a new agreement that will help customers quickly deploy electronic forms and carry out advanced processing of form submissions.
“We’re excited that ColumbiaSoft is enabling its customers to use PerfectForms technology directly with their platform for records control,” said PerfectForms President and CEO, Paula Selvidge. “Our two companies have a shared vision for improving the productivity of businesses, and PerfectForms and Document Locator perfectly complement each other to that end.”
Companies are increasingly turning to electronic forms over paper-based forms because electronic forms take less time to process and result in fewer errors. Form data is captured directly from individuals who enter information into the forms. This eliminates a step in processing since there is no need to manually enter data submitted on paper, saving time and reducing the possibility of data-entry errors or lost paper files.
With a connection to document management, information received via electronic forms can be automatically captured as a permanent record and converted to a PDF file. The information can be searched, placed into document workflows, managed according records policies for security and compliance, and more.
