Electronic Forms (E-Forms)

Capture data directly and replace paper forms

E-forms technology completes the capture strategy of a process and content management system, enabling the online entry and collection of raw data in electronic forms that are accessible from web pages, mobile devices, portals, software applications and more. Incorporate this information immediately into your business process to automate steps, validate data accuracy and support application transactions.

Perceptive’s e-forms products make electronic data capture quick and simple, empowering your operation to gather the information needed to simplify virtually any task. Customizable forms fit right where you need them so anyone — employees, customers, even non-system users — can complete and submit information one time, effortlessly.

Content collected in e-forms is validated, stored, organized and secured independently, enabling you to route it through workflow, apply version control and more. Support for industry-standard data formats and technology also maximizes the versatility of e-forms.
