User Forms Data Capture

Easily Collect Customer Response Forms

Secure Forms is a unique service for easily obtaining information directly from your customers via their mobile phones, their views are returned and captured directly into a highly secure PDF format, which is always password protected, your secure forms are stored in an encrypted cloud locker to ensure that only you can see the views and expressed opinions of those who respond to your requests for information, complete privacy for you alone.

Ideal for medical reporting, or staff and customer surveys, respondents can be anonymous or choose to share their contact details, totally safe for capturing their personal information and feedback which could be subject to Data Privacy laws.

Secure Contact Forms is a new cloud application designed as an encrypted (HTTPS) web utility service for Securely Capturing User Input.

Our service provides the ability to collect and store end user input in a totally secure way, without using any Email or other 'Open' internet service, using an encrypted internet link (our own HTPPS certificate) the captured input fields are stored in a compiled PDF document which is double encrypted.

The PDF document is encrypted once using Adobe's own encryption technique (AES128bit), and this document is then stored under an encrypted secure folder behind a web based control panel, access is only provided to the authorised account holder. Retrieved documents can later be distributed (by Email) as required - but they will always be protected by Adobe encryption, so the recipient will need to know the document password you assigned to the form, this can be sent via SMS so avoiding the need to include passwords in any emails sent out.

For your web developers it is possible to simply copy a small piece of iFrame code and insert this into your own web site page to invoke the response capture form, so now you can request customer feed back directly from any existing web site.

Using this approach enables any organisation to capture end user input in a way that complies with any Data Privacy laws, since all data input by the respondent is either stored encrypted or passed around the internet in an encrypted format, each document requires a password to access the original content, document passwords can be different to the account storage password.

If you need to capture private or personal information from your customers or staff, and need a simple quick and effective way to capture that data totally securely, then our service provides the facility you need.

Using the control panel you can build any format of PDF data capture form, and have a working system in less than 30 minutes. Documents can be stored in an historic archive for an unlimited time period, and where required full key search facilities can be enabled.

You can also use SMS notifications (a feature of the system) to 'push' notify your customers or staff teams, perfect for collecting information from mobile users.

Scan Directly to the cloud an MFD e-file store

A unique facility, where the web service issues a dedicated email address which is associated with a secure storage folder, this allows you to attach any document, or file to an email and then simply hit 'send', the email with it's attachment is then received by the server and automatically stored for later access by anyone with an authorised sign on. This is ideal for project and programme teams whose members involve internal staff and external partners (third parties), enabling collaboration and sharing of common documents.

This facility when combined with the modern Email capability of the new MFD's (multi functional device, or photo-copier) allows for a complete change in business processes, for example your counter staff can now very simply copy 'proof-of-delivery' documents direct to the web.

Automated Post Room & Purchase to Pay

This capability allows you to automate the capture of supplier invoices and thus to improve the processing of documents from low volume or ad hoc suppliers who send only a few invoices a month.

In these cases it is not worth investing in traditional EDI, but our technology can deliver the same benefits to your business by capturing them via supplier operated web templates, which captures their document keys and a digital copy of their invoice, or more simply via a dedicated FAX number, when even 'low tech' suppliers (perhaps outside the UK) can send their invoices directly into the web store. All these supplier invoices can be fully indexed and coded ready for download and import directly into your purchase ledger, delivering huge savings against traditional paper chase systems.
