New software enables anyone to create online forms without technical training Thursday 11 January 2018 PDF Print Many sectors such as HR, local and central government, health and recruitment, are crying out for this practical, affordable technology. A new business software package, recently launched, enables anyone familiar with Microsoft Word to create professional, interactive online eForms without having to bring in expensive web developers or internal IT help. VF Creator, from leading eForm provider, Victoria Forms, enables anyone to design and customise forms within Microsoft Word before the new software converts them into professional-looking online forms. This means that anyone in any department can now create online forms without having to learn how to use specialist eForms software. Public and private organisations generate many thousands of forms each year for many different functions such as job applications, housing applications, pension forms and registration forms. Despite a push towards digitalisation, they are still awash with forms in paper, PDF or Word format. They risk creating a poor impression and user experience amongst customers and staff alike. What’s more, they slow down business, add to administration costs and increase the likelihood of human error and lost data. Duncan Bayne, the owner and founder of Victoria Forms, explains: “In today’s digital society, there is an expectation that all forms can be completed online, at any time, through multiple devices including smartphones. Paper (or PDF-style) forms are easy to create, but are expensive to administer and they create a negative impression of a company for customers, potential employees and existing staff.” Until now, creating online forms has been a time-intensive and expensive process. Traditionally, online forms required either an IT specialist or a third party to carry out the eForms design work. This can be very expensive and time consuming, especially for organisations that need to produce a lot of different forms, who have to make regular amendments, or who have limited in-house IT expertise and support. VF Creator eForms can be accessed by users 24/7 and there is no need for printing or posting. The VF Creator eForms helps and guides the user through the form, intelligently switching sections on or off depending on relevancy, making it much easier to fill in. The eForm also checks itself for errors, ensuring high quality data the first time around, reducing administration time. Users can sign forms on screen, make the process 100 per cent paper free. The software can also be integrated with back-office systems, getting rid of the need for re-keying information by staff. Duncan continues: “As it is an extension to Microsoft Word, VF Creator can be used by anyone with very little guidance or training. Many sectors such as HR, local and central government, health and recruitment, are crying out for this practical, affordable technology.” To book a demonstration or to find out further information please visit: www.victoriaforms.com.
