Benefits to government agencies
Improved constituent self-service: Forms are simple to design and deploy, so government organizations can quickly and cost-effectively deploy them online in response to constituent demands or legislative mandates.
Improved internal efficiencies: As forms are filled out or scanned, the data is captured in the XML and automatically transferred to core systems without the need for rekeying.
Enhanced regulatory compliance: Forms are linked to workflows, so organizations can automatically route forms and documents to the necessary people via e-mail for approval as mandated by regulations.
Enhanced document privacy and security: With digital signatures, agencies can offer forms to be filled in offline and still maintain the security, authenticity, and integrity of transactions. By restricting access to information using PDF access controls, agencies can provide information privacy and increased security.
