naturalFORMS®, ExpeData's next-generation enterprise forms application, automates the collection of handwriting and other methods of natural input at the point of entry. Captured information is immediately converted to digital data, verified for accuracy, validated with enterprise rules, and seamlessly integrated to backend systems. This straight-through processing capability eliminates third party data entry and verification as well as related cycle time delays, resulting in unsurpassed workflow optimization and significant cost savings.
Leverages existing business forms which can be customized with field level rules to meet enterprise
requirements. Custom form definition services are available for an additional fee. The solution supports users that have already deployed digital writing via digital pen and paper technology. Forms previously defined for paper can be leveraged for tablet use.
Allows users to easily and efficiently complete forms using the optimum input method for each type of field. Input methods include printed and cursive handwriting, checkbox and radio button input, option lists for easy selection of common items, visual inputs such as a date and time wheels, and a virtual keyboard if necessary.
Advanced graphical and photo inputs are also supported by naturalFORMS. Users can take a photo with the device camera, annotate as needed and attach to the form, make notes or mark-up diagrams or schematics, and create freehand drawings. The solution also captures handwritten signatures. naturalFORMS even captures GPS coordinates for enhanced accountability and operational control. Because the solution uses natural input, user training is minimal and adoption is quick.
Provides instant feedback regarding handwriting interpretation accuracy and eliminates third party
verification and data entry. Immediate notification is given if the user does not fully complete the form or adhere to the field level rules.
Includes a complete library of APIs in our Software Development Kit (sold separately), allowing high
quality data to securely flow directly into enterprise systems, accelerating the business process.
Leverages the highly secure EDW® platform which uses a role-based model to regulate user access
and privileges. Multi-level password protection restricts access to captured data and images,
enabling a device to be safely shared by multiple users.
Allows mobile workers to collect and process forms even when wireless and Wi-Fi network services are
not available. Users can also print and email forms directly from the application.
