Powerful Workflow & Data Exchange Capabilities

Email is the most effective means of communication in every organisation. FORMVERSE leverages an organisation’s existing investment in Microsoft® Exchange to provide a cost-effective platform for solving business challenges.

FORMVERSE is built on Microsoft® .NET, SQL Server, and Outlook technologies, as well as exploiting the advantages of XML and Web Services technologies. FORMVERSE leverages these technologies and Microsoft Exchange to provide a platform for automating forms, automating workflow, and capturing data in a highly-functional yet easy-to-use system. By leveraging the FORMVERSE patented Active Structured Email™ technology, organisations implementing FORMVERSE are able to greatly enhance other initiatives such as: Archiving, eDiscovery, Compliance, and modernization of legacy systems.

Key components include:

 

  • Forms – Simple to design and use as any office document, thanks to FORMVERSE support of Microsoft® InfoPath.
  • FORMVERSE Template Editor – This is a graphical tool that allows novice users to enter data-driven business rules that define the process.
  • FORMVERSE Admin Console – Implemented as a standard Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in, this module provides the administration interface for all FORMVERSE components and enabled completed forms and process templates to be verified and published with the click of a button.
  • FORMVERSE Outlook Client – A small add-on which provides transparent use of FORMVERSE-enhanced email from within Microsoft Outlook.
  • FORMVERSE Processing Engine – As defined by the business processing templates, the FORMVERSE engine extracts the data contained in a FORMVERSE email and applies the processing rules defined for that particular process; such as routing the email to the appropriate recipient(s), or inserting form data into a database.

Easy Integration with other Enterprise Applications

FORMVERSE can be used as an effective way to securely collect data, which can then be extracted based on recipient-defined processing rules and integrated with enterprise applications and databases. FORMVERSE PASSPORT is a module that works with the FORMVERSE BPA Software, enabling organisations to easily and powerfully integrate and exchange data between FORMVERSE Emails and other Enterprise Databases.

 

FORMVERSE PASSPORT implements a connector framework that is designed to provide common services that are required while designing extensible integration applications. These out of the box services include the following:

Data Encryption

Encryption & decryption for configurable text values is provided as part of the connector data protection services.

Event Notification & Scheduling

Connector modules can subscribe to an event notification service that will allow them to run and execute their desired task in a scheduled fashion.

Service Management & Configuration UI

The connector framework provides a pluggable architecture where custom connector adapters can be introduced and removed dynamically.

Persistent Connector Configuration

Any configurable component is written into a file, after being it is configured using the “Connector Task Configuration” user interface.

Input & Output Implementation

Default implementations for reading an input from a file and writing an output into a file are included with the connector framework.

Custom connector adapters can also provide extended implementations for different type of input and output mechanisms.

Windows Service

The connector framework runs as a windows service. By implementing a default windows service implementation that can process configured components of the connector framework, it facilitates the prompt deployment of custom connector adapters.

Logging

FORMVERSE PASSPORT provides mechanism for logging into a file.

XSLT Transformation Action: FORMVERSE PASSPORT provides default implementation for an XSLT based transformation action.
