Make the Most of Your Existing Applications
FormPort Server takes the “text-only” output from custom or legacy line of business applications.
FormPort converts it into professional, customized forms that can be output on most HP LaserJet Printers and MFP devices. No need for dedicated printers. No more sourcing, storing and swapping expensive pre-printed forms.
Professional Formatting without Pre-Printed Forms
FormPort Server comes standard with the ability to generate standard “green bar” reports. To create other custom forms, take advantage of our professional eForms design service or our optional FormPort Designer software.
FormPort Server templates let you enhance the “text-only” output from line-of-business applications with a variety of typefaces, font sizes and both color and monochrome graphic elements including:
You can even generate money and time-saving self-mailing forms. No more stuffing envelopes!
And unlike pre-printed forms, FormPort Server makes responding to changing form requirements both fast and economical. No more boxes of obsolete pre-printed forms!
Automatic Formatting – Just Click “Print”
FormPort Server makes formatting documents as easy as hitting the “print” command.
FormPort Server scans the print-stream data and automatically applies the appropriate eForm. No user intervention required!
Intelligent Form Distribution
FormPort Server boosts productivity and reduces human error by automating the document distribution process.
The end user no longer needs to select a destination printer – they simply print to the FormPort Server logical printer. When FormPort Server scans the print stream data to select the appropriate eForm template, it also uses this information to select the correct output location. In a business, a commission report could automatically output in the payroll department . In a school, self-mailing report
cards could be automatically directed to an MFP device in the mail room.
Configuration agents (included standard with FormPort server) extend these distribution capabilities even further, with a number of electronic/paperless distribution options, including:
- Electronic Archive
Other standard configuration agents can be used to generate reports, enhance printing process security and more.
Multiple Forms from a Single Print Command
In the most business, educational or government environments, it’s quite common for several forms to incorporate the same set of data.
With FormPort server, you can automatically generate and route these forms with a single print command. A product distributor, for instance, could simultaneously format and print a packing slip for its shipping department while it e-mails the same information as a customer invoice.
Scalable to Any Network Environment
FormPort Server is licensed on a per printer/MFP device basis, so you can procure a solution that specifically matches your output needs and budget.
There’s no limit to the number of print processes or users, and no matter how many devices you license, you’ll have full access to all configuration agents. As your organization grows, scaling your FormPort solution is as easy as adding more device licenses.
Solutions for Windows and UNIX Environments
In its standard configuration, FormPort Server supports Microsoft® Windows network environments.
If you need the capabilities of FormPort Server, but you’ve standardized on a UNIX® environment, FormPort Server UNIX lets you take advantage of the automated formatting and distribution capabilities of FormPort Server without the need for a Windows server.
