Ultraforms® has been especially designed to work with the most popular and widespread platforms: PDF format. No further installations of software, plug-ins or libraries are required. The only software the end-user needs is a PDF Reader that supports intelligent form capability.
It doesn't matter if the form has one page or many, or if the end-user has a laser or an inkjet printer. All the form's data will be encapsulated in a 2D barcode that can be easily read with a handheld scanner, or with a high-speed document scanner equipped with appropriate barcode reading software.
A single PDF417 symbol can hold up to 1600 characters (almost 2Kb) when configured with an industry recommended ‘level four’ error correction setting. Additionally, symbols can be "chained" together and read as if they were a unique file (Macro PDF standard). Almost 175 Mb can be encoded this way.
Ultraforms® works online or offline. Forms can be accessed from a website, emailed as a normal PDF file, or accessed from CD or USB. Its performance won’t be affected.
Ultraforms® is a very lightweight solution which adds approximately 25kb to a PDF fillable form’s size.
