OmniForm Premium 5
OmniForm Premium 5 provides a solution to the problem how to capture paper forms and convert the paper document into a usable, electronic file that can be stored and re-used on a computer.
When you think of the number of paper forms we still are dependent on in our society, such as loan requests, employment applications, expense reports, purchase orders, or invoices, you soon realize just how many of these paper-based documents still serve as the original and end point steps in whatever process the form represents. With the rapidly increasing quality and speed of scanners, many computer operators are beginning to convert their paper forms to an electronic version, and even providing an electronic means by which their customers can complete and return the computer version back to the supplier.
As Internet access continues to expand, and as the speed of Internet access also continues to increase, this adds further pressure to find a way to provide an electronic means for customers to supply whatever information is required. Answering this newly emerging market, ScanSoft announces the latest new edition of OmniForm Premium, version 5, that contains a multitude of new features that further entrench ScanSoft's dominance in this field.
OmniForm Premium 5 is an important program that converts a blank paper form into a fully editable electronic form that can be filled out on screen, stored, printed, and electronically distributed to others. The many powerful features in this program are all easily accessed via the streamlined user interface, hiding some very clever programming that is doing much very hard work behind the scenes to enable you to convert and work with a paper form.
