Mobile workers in multiple industries can leverage naturalFORMS to complete business forms on tablet devices using natural input such as handwriting. naturalFORMS also allows users to capture photos, drawings, annotations, voice, GPS and electronic signatures. Captured information is immediately converted to digital data, verified for accuracy, validated with enterprise rules, and available in standard file outputs for integration.
Key Features and Enhancements:
Intelligent Form Fields (Calculations, Auto Fill, Conditional Mandatory Fields, Field Format Validation): Intelligent field functions are designed increase efficiency and accuracy of form completion. Real-time calculations can occur between fields or across multiple pages. Fields can be auto-filled from one location on a form to additional areas of the form. Conditional mandatory fields can be used to enforce mandatory information capture based on the input of a checkbox field. Form fields such as telephone numbers, date and time or quantity can have predefined formats for accurate data collection, with users receiving an error or warning message if the format entered is incorrect.
Automatic Form Review and Validation: naturalFORMS 1.4 can perform an automatic form review that ensures data is complete and adheres to defined business rules prior to submission. Validation capabilities include checking for mandatory and conditional mandatory fields, verifying that the specified format for a field has been followed, checking that there are no errors in calculated fields and ensuring that all mandatory voice, photo, and GPS attachments have been supplied.
User Interface and Tool Enhancements: Version 1.4 includes enhancements to the app interface for forms navigation and search functionality to ensure an optimum user experience. Form design flexibility and customization has been enhanced for those customers that utilize ExpeData Forms Manager tools to create their own forms.
