Lund, Sweden and Westborough, MA (PRWEB) February 5, 2009
Anoto Group, the inventor of digital pen and paper, today announced Anoto Forms Solution, a new solutions package for partners to easily create commercial software solutions utilizing digital pen and paper technology. Partners using Anoto Forms Solution will be able to bring digital pen and paper forms processing to their customers--as part of solutions such as electronic medical records, document management systems and other industry-specific applications--in a matter of weeks, with minimal development requirements.
Anoto digital pen and paper technology is the de-facto industry standard and provides the fastest, most user-friendly, cost effective and accurate way to digitize handwritten forms, without having to change existing workflows. The company powers digital pens for more than 250 partners, including such well-known brands as Leapfrog and LiveScribe.
"The key to the success of ApolloMD is our commitment to clinical quality and patient satisfaction," said Daniel Bassett, CTO with ApolloMD, a provider of emergency physician services to hospitals. "Anoto Forms Solution has allowed us to add digital pen and paper technology, resulting in much higher efficiency and through-put levels for our physicians compared to a traditional Electronic Medical Records system. With the renewed focus on reducing health care cost, the Anoto pen solution provides a cost effective way to digitize medical records while maintaining physician efficiency."
"The Anoto Forms Solution makes it easier than ever for partners to integrate digital pen and paper technology into their existing customer offerings. It's an out-of-the-box development package that is going to be the cornerstone that will expand our channel and make digital pen and paper technology more widely available to future channel partners," said Ebba Åsly Fåhraeus, VP Sales Marketing Forms with Anoto. "The Anoto Forms Solution provides us with an important means to expand the footprint in digital pen and paper to partners providing solutions in almost any market, but in particular, our key markets--healthcare, government and municipalities, transportation and logistics, financial services and education. We believe this will empower our new partners to gain critical competitive advantage with minimal investment"
Anoto Digital Pen and Paper, the Mightiest of All
Digital pen and paper is the easiest and most cost-effective data capture option available today. Data capture is a critical element for any company whose business involves the extensive processing of handwritten forms. Traditionally, data capture options like data entry, tablet PC or scanners fall short of providing fast and accurate data capture that doesn't require extensive training or workflow interruption. All this changes with digital pen and paper: if you can use a pen, you can use Anoto solutions.
For end users, Anoto's digital pen and paper technology consists primarily of two parts: a digital pen with a camera inside it and a unique, nearly invisible dot pattern printed on regular paper. As the user writes on the printout with the pen, the camera records the pen strokes and stores that data as coordinates. The handwriting is then forwarded to handwriting recognition software, where it is translated into data that can be exported into any back-end system.
Anoto Forms Solution
Anoto Forms Solution makes it easy to incorporate digital pen and paper as part of any software solution's workflow. It includes tools for easily creating new or converting existing forms into printed digital forms and for creating workflows that include capture, transfer, interpretation and export of the written information. Included with Anoto Forms Solution are fully-licensed digital pens and licenses to allow partners to quickly create demonstrations for their prospects, right out of the box.
