Smart leverage of e-forms is a key component of any e-government initiative
Fairfax, VA (Vocus) September 25, 2009
Formatta, a leading provider of eforms-driven business process optimization solutions delivering increased performance and measurable return on investment, today announced positive outcomes by government organizations leveraging the Formatta solution.
The Formatta solution is now deployed to hundreds of thousands of government employees and partners, allowing them to easily access, sign, and submit electronic forms critical to a wide array of processes including e-FOIA and e-Permitting requests, safety program reporting and analysis, and reporting on field-based initiatives. The Formatta solution can also be used by government agencies for optimizing forms-driven processes that support social services reimbursement, law enforcement including crime scene processing, records management and claims processing.
“Smart leverage of e-forms is a key component of any e-government initiative,” said Grant Wagner, Formatta President and CEO. “With Formatta’s solution in place, government agencies are able to provide better customer service, cut costs, and promote ‘green’ operations, in addition to benefiting from improved business intelligence.”
Formatta improves the ability of government agencies and enterprises to simply, quickly and affordably move e-forms data to those mission-critical business applications that need it most without extensive programming and expensive information technology support services.
Formatta’s deployment into government agencies met with early success. Specific use cases include:
- FOIA tracking & reporting: Government agencies have deployed e-forms using the Formatta solution in less than three weeks to manage the collection and reporting of e-FOIA request information from hundreds of organizations, with far less effort than required in previous years.
- Permitting: E-forms have been successfully used to automate receipt and processing of applications from the public for various activities on government land and in government buildings that require a permit.
- Safety program: E-forms have also been deployed to support automated reporting of safety incidents that is then used to identify opportunities for improving workplace safety.
- Field reporting: E-Forms have been developed to support collection of field data, including surveys from visitors using various government sites. The data is collected electronically and automatically submitted and uploaded into relevant databases.
“Government agencies continue to turn to Formatta to efficiently and effectively manage their e-forms requirements,” said Wagner. “Formatta is the most affordable, scalable, and easiest to implement, use, and maintain data capture and integration solution on the market today.”
More than just an electronic version of a paper form, Formatta’s solution quickly captures, verifies, approves and integrates data used in enterprise processes with the critical enterprise systems used to run organizations. While other solutions solve document/record management and business process management problems, they do not efficiently capture data from paper and paper equivalents and easily integrate it to business applications that require it. Formatta provides the most affordable, scalable, and easiest to implement, use, and maintain e-forms data capture and integration solution. Formatta is headquartered in the greater Washington, DC area. More information about Formatta is located online at http://www.formatta.com .
