pTools has announced details of its new eForms functionality to be launched at Internet World 2007 in London this month. pTools eForms brings integration of online and downloadable forms to CMS in a single user interface. Using pTools eForms functionality, forms can be generated, presented, fulfilled, signed, and delivered in a highly secure, easy-to-use environment.

pTools eForms is built on work with pTools customers in a number of sectors including Financial Services and uses the validation, non-repudiation, and fulfillment process typical of secure banking standard transactions. pTools S5 (System Five) which now includes eForms functionality has already delivered results for customers including Allianz Cornhill, Devon & Cornwall Police, and Price Waterhouse Coopers.

Tom Skinner, Managing Director of pTools says: "There is a logical fit between eForms technology and CMS. eForms functionality allows pTools deployments to integrate with any forms business process platform and workflow layer. We see opportunities for a range of customers from financial services to utilities and public services. We are enabling pTools users to build and expand content and information around online forms and to publish and distribute this content with built-in workflow, structure and document compliance.”

pTools eForms functionality integrates fully with Microsoft's .Net framework and further enhances product connectors between pTools and Microsoft application server products like Sharepoint as well as the Vista office suite. pTools deploys to Oracle and Microsoft SQL and enables content management professionals to use the pTools programming interface and development tools to deliver solutions for Intranets, Extranets and Internet applications.

Skinner continues: “We have provided eForms functionality successfully on a customised basis to customers for some time and this is now available to all pTools customers. The rapid delivery of robust online forms offers a lot of possibilities for Internet, intranet and extranet systems and is part of a trend by customers away from traditional print and toward online forms and downloads.”

Commenting further Clive Kent, pTools Commercial Director said "pTools eForms product is designed for enterprise wide use and sits on top of the workflow and analysis layer within pTools. The ability to sign the form either online or in print is something that is instantly appealing and will bring immediate value to customers. This is just one of many enterprise class features we are releasing and you can expect to see more content interface features like this in the coming months.”

pTools eForms functionality uses the content element model developed by the company to deliver sites that run on any platform or device. pTools content element model enables advanced enterprise content management functionality for content assembly, personalisation and security ensuring robust workflow and compliance for every element of the final output and dynamic re-use and re-purposing of content in a fully controlled content lifecycle environment.
