Ultraforms: Automate Your Data Capture

Ultraforms® is a powerful 2D barcode generation engine specifically designed to facilitate automated capture data from printed PDF fillable forms. Industries of all types, such as Government (State, Federal and Local), Education, Health, Laboratories, Human Resources, Insurance, Banking, Logistics, etc. can benefit from using Ultraforms®.

To solve data capture issues, customers provide Ultraforms®-enabled PDF fillable forms to their end users. When these end users fill in the PDF form electronically, Ultraforms® generates a 2D barcode right onto the form that contains the variable data entered into the form by the end user. After printing and signing, submitted forms can be quickly scanned and the form's data can be easily and accurately captured into databases or applications.

Data capture using 2D barcode technology:

  • Reduces costs from traditional data capture operations.
  • Reduces time needed to capture data.
  • Makes data available to other systems/processes faster, bridging the gap between disparate IT systems cheaply and efficiently, or speeding the transfer of data to, or within, a business process or workflow.
  • Provides 100% accuracy in the data capture process.
  • Minimizes the number of problems that can arise with conventional data capture methods, e.g. false positives and data errors.
