FormSuite for Structured Forms

Forms Processing SDK

Build your feature-rich forms processing application quickly and easily.

FormSuite for Structured Forms, is an industry leader in integrating powerful character recognition (OCR, ICR, and OMR), form identification, form dropout, scanned document cleanup, and more, to eliminate slow, costly manual data entry and data extraction for structured forms.

Available for .NET and ActiveX, our SDK has a full-featured trial available, that includes C# source code for a sample application.

Why should you use FormSuite for Structured Forms, a forms processing SDK?

Capture Everything

Typed phone number fields, signatures, filled in bubbles, hand printed text fields, barcodes. Any data filled into a form can be captured using OCR, ICR, OMR, and barcode recognition.

Out-Of-Box Ready

Fully-functionally template creation and setup testing tool empowers you to easily set up the forms processing system and test it prior to production. Source code included to allow you to customise the tool. Fully-functional, multi-threaded processing sample code gets you quickly to a production capable forms processing solution.

No Form Sorting

Build template sets made of numerous forms so you don't have to sort them prior to processing. FormSuite identifies the correct form and aligns it even if it is rotated or skewed or scaled.

 

 

Accusoft FormSuite

Although you can use the included components on their own, they are most powerful when you use them together as shown below, or through the FormAssist or Forms Processing Server demonstration applications included in the FormSuite installation.

FormSuite components deliver business functions essential to forms processing application logic, such as:

  • Form identification
  • Form dropout
  • Zonal ICR
  • Zonal OCR
  • OMR
  • Image display/editing
  • Image cleanup
  • Barcode recognition (optional)
  • PDF handling (optional)

Components Included In FormSuite

The FormSuite SDK includes the following components:

  • FormFix
  • FormDirector
  • SmartZone ICR
  • SmartZone OCR
  • ScanFix Xpress
  • ImagXpress (which in turn includes NotateXpress, ThumbnailXpress, TwainPRO, and PrintPRO)
  • Barcode Xpress (optional)
  • PDF Xpress (optional)

Application logic is required for the components to interact with one another. This gives you the freedom to mix and match component versions and vendors to create the best possible solution for your product. Sample code depicting interaction between our components is provided in the FormSuite installation. As always, knowledgeable technical support is provided in case you have any issues.

Demonstration Applications & Samples

FormSuite also includes a sample and two demonstration applications in source code format:

  • Forms API was added for easier developer interaction with FormSuite components.
  • The FormAssist sample application demonstrates the capabilities of FormSuite when used as a desktop GUI-driven application.
  • The Forms Processing Server application demonstrates the capabilities of FormSuite when used in an unattended batched processing mode, as in a server application.

Both FormAssist and Forms Processing Server demonstration applications illustrate best practices for the integration of all the FormSuite components, as well as an example workflow. Use FormAssist or the Forms Processing Server as a foundation for developing your production forms processing application.

 

New Features in FormSuite 5

FormFix 5

  • A new OMR Processing mechanism for improved OMR recognition. For an easy way to convert old formsets to use the new mechanism, see the OMRThresholdConverter sample.
  • New methods for Image Transfer between Accusoft Components, which are easier to use and avoids memory leaks. See 'Upgrading from FormFix 4 to FormFix 5' in the FormFix online help.
