8 OctoTools Forms Processor (OFP)™ Your Best Forms Choice Today PDF Using OctoTools Forms Processor (OFP)™ PDF OctoTools Forms Processor (OFP)™ Pros Anyone can fill on a computer or thin client Electronic data is accurate, there is no transcription or OCR Can be created and changed relatively easily using any PDF compatible design tool. Uses free Adobe Reader to fill forms Is a smart form allowing pull downs, checkboxes and radio button If multiple choices are in a select list, a normal PDF would not display them. OFP will add supplementary pages to the PDF to show these otherwise hidden values, something Adobe does not even do today. If you have long scrolling fields in a small text box that are truncated or shrink too small, OFP will add supplementary pages to the PDF to show these otherwise hidden values, something Adobe does not even do today. Usually easy to print Unlimited copies of a form may be entered with HTTP or ed without additional charges using free Adobe Reader Barcodes may be added to any or all copies of the form based on one or more values from the form input and/or through a user supplied server based program. No addition license is required on a per user basis. Forms are flattened (no longer fillable), but are still text searchable, and may be easily imported into DMS using a CSV file containing all index values PDF Cons Requires a computer or thin client to fill out

9 Problems 1.Paper forms require re-entry of data 2.Document Management Systems (DMS) doesn’t interface w/the data on PDF forms 3.Adobe limits forms generation 4.No easy way to generate barcodes for input 5.OCR not 100% accurate

10 Solution 1.OctoTools OFP™ extracts data from Adobe fillable forms without OCR 2.Import documents and index values into Document Management Systems 3.Automatically generate barcodes to easily associate signature pages scanned later

15 Note the multiple selection box below. Normal DMS systems only show what is visible

16 No Longer Fillable Select boxes are now references

17 Previously the document was 9 pages Problem: You could not see that multiple items were selected. This is a serious limitation when storing a form in a DMS or entering into en ERP system The standard way of addressing this is to list all possible the fields as check boxes. That takes up a great deal of form space Innovative OctoTools OFP Solution Add another page at the end with the multiple values
