Cupertino, CA (PRWEB) October 20, 2010
Avoka Technologies today announced the availability of a major new release of the company’s award-winning Form Factory for Adobe LiveCycle. Avoka Form Factory is a solution suite that opens the LiveCycle innovation process to business teams, so that organizations can create more LiveCycle SmartForms at less cost and in less time. Form Factory is comprised of Avoka SmartForm Composer, an intuitive SmartForms creation tool and Avoka FormCenter, a comprehensive SmartForms enterprise management solution. This latest release adds a robust data dictionary and multi-language form translation capability to SmartForm Composer.
“The initial release of Form Factory empowered business teams to create, deploy and manage LiveCycle SmartForms so that organizations can be more responsive and reduce the cost and time it takes to deploy LiveCycle SmartForms,” said Philip Copeland, Managing Director of Avoka Technologies. “This release focuses on enabling large organizations take a more systematic approach to building electronic forms that can quickly and easily be deployed into many different languages.”
The new SmartForm Composer Data Dictionary ensures the consistency of data across forms by ensuring that any element defined in the Data Dictionary will always have the same label, tooltip, list of drop-down values, etc. no matter what form it appears on. The Data Dictionary allows organizations to define data in business terms, rather than technical terms. Defining a common vocabulary promotes understanding between different organizations and it provides developers with a clear and unambiguous definition of the data within their LiveCycle SmartForms.
The new SmartForm Composer multi-language support dramatically reduces the time and costs associated with deploying forms globally. Up until now, the process of building forms in multiple languages has been extremely tedious and costly. In most cases multiple copies of the form are translated into different languages. This costly and complex approach causes significant maintenance and compliance issues, because the same form has to be maintained in several languages. The benefit of the SmartForm Composer approach is that a single form definition file is used to automatically translate a form into a large number of languages with all business rules, formatting and other form features remaining intact across languages.
“Most organizations are replacing their paper forms with electronic forms to allow users to open accounts, order products, or register for services online, and as a result the use of electronic forms is growing exponentially,” said Howard Treisman, CTO of Avoka. “This release of SmartForm Composer provides enhanced support for reuse, productivity and globalization so that organizations can more efficiently and effectively deploy large numbers of LiveCycle SmartForms.”
This release of Avoka’s Form Factory is immediately available and will be demonstrated at the Adobe MAX User Conference October 23-27, Los Angeles, CA -. Booth number 430.
