Westbrook Technologies Introduces Web-Based Toolkit for Creating Dynamic Forms

Fortis FormIt Creates Web 2.0 Forms Via Browser-Based Technology

BRANFORD, CT--(Marketwire - November 18, 2008) - Westbrook® Technologies, developer of Fortis® enterprise document management (EDM) software, today announced the availability of Fortis FormIt™, a Web-based toolkit for creating dynamic, Web 2.0 forms via intuitive drag-and-drop technology. The 100 percent browser-based design tool includes built-in business rules, pre-configured layouts and automatic synchronization of forms and data. Users can easily add forms to any Web page.

Implemented in conjunction with Fortis EDM software, customers can use standard templates, or their own, to create multi-page forms, tabbed views and collapsible sections. A variety of pre-packaged data controls collect basic information, such as name, date, address and cost.

"Organizations continue to invest in Web 2.0 technology to take advantage of its potential efficiencies," said Jonathan Langdon-Phillips, director of Professional Services for Westbrook Technologies. "By integrating Fortis FormIt with our Fortis software to create Web-based forms, users can automatically trigger a workflow process and eliminate duplicate data entry by sending data directly to other business applications."

Other benefits of Fortis FormIt include the ability to:

-- Automatically process and update data captured by online forms

-- Apply built-in logic to make forms "sticky" for the user

-- Leverage the workflow capabilities of Fortis document management software

Fortis FormIt has an AJAX-based, responsive user interface provided by Live Forms™ from frevvo. It offers full support for XML and XML schema. With Live Forms integrated into Fortis FormIt, users can eliminate the time-consuming programming, deployment and cost typically associated with creating Internet forms.
