What is Active Ink?
We've all done it -- sometimes many times a day! We've all gone into a bank, or the DMV, or a doctor's office and been
handed a paper form on a clipboard which we are asked to fill out with pen by hand. What happens when we turn that
form in? A staffer must decipher our completed form and re-input the handwritten information into her computer so that we
can be tracked, serviced and billed.
All too often, today's digital accounts still begin with this seemingly-inescapable analog first step --
the paper form -- an incredibly inefficient, error-prone and costly way to gather information.
The paper form creates redundant work for field personnel, office staff, and managers alike, but it doesn't have to be this way.
All the information that a paper form collects can now be captured and converted
digitally, using technology that has been around for years!
How we do it:
Active Ink's Electronic Forms not only replace your paper forms, they make them better! They work on
ordinary tablet PC's and interface with your existing software. No special scanners or readers are required, but Active Ink's e-forms will work
side-by-side with your specialty data collection equipment if necessary. Active Ink's e-forms look exactly like your old forms, but their fields are made active and more powerful.
An Active Ink e-form can import signatures, barcodes, and drawings, it can instantly convert handwritten fields, and most importantly, it can send and receive the information gathered in the field to the
home office, seamlessly integrating with any desired database platform.
Active Ink does not re-invent the wheel -- we work with and around our clients' existing IT infrastructure, molding our value-added software to their needs.
Our e-forms are exceedingly simple to use and administrate. If your staff can fill out your existing paper forms, they can use
Active Ink's digital duplicates. The only thing that changes is how much time and money you will save collecting, collating, and storing your data in the field.
