Cardiff Software Ships LiquidOffice eForm Management System v1.0
Press release from the issuing company
San Diego, June 25- Cardiff Software Inc., a leader in forms processing and eBusiness automation solutions, today announced the immediate availability of the LiquidOffice eForm Management System. LiquidOffice is a turnkey, XML-based solution that leverages the popular Adobe portable document format (PDF) to route, approve, submit, and sign online forms using standard Web clients.
LiquidOffice is the result of an eForm Alliance formed by Cardiff Software and Adobe Systems, which was announced March 12, 2001. With LiquidOffice and Adobe Acrobat 5.0 organizations now have a standards-based solution for automating internal, public-facing and citizen-facing forms and processes.
"Initial corporate and government orders for LiquidOffice have been phenomenal,'' said Dennis Clerke, co-founder, president and CEO of Cardiff Software. "It is clear that the market has been waiting for a standards-based solution, especially one that leverages the acceptance of XML and Adobe PDF standards.''
Initial government customers include the North Dakota State Tax Department, the North Dakota State IT Department, the State of California Department of General Services, the State of California DGS Office of Technology Resources, the State of California DGS Office of Legal Services, and the State of California DGS Procurement Division.
"LiquidOffice was selected as our platform for implementing automated electronic forms because of Cardiff's use of XML, HTML and Adobe PDF standards, and its 'no-Filler' open-systems approach,'' said Catherine Forsch, director of IT for the Office of State Tax Commissioner State of North Dakota.
"Equally important in our decision is the excellent service provided by Binary Office, a Cardiff Channel Partner. The LiquidOffice implementation is exceeding expectations, thanks in large part to Binary Office's Marc Carleno.'' LiquidOffice plays an important role in eGovernment initiatives by providing a single platform for automating internal and public "citizen-facing'' forms processes. The system also speeds adherence to various mandates, including the Government Paper Elimination Act, the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act and Section 508 Accessibility.
Organizations using LiquidOffice eForms can save from $30 to $150 per form transaction when compared to paper forms processes. LiquidOffice leapfrogs pre-Internet eForm products, eliminating the maintenance and expense associated with thick-client, ActiveX- or Java(TM)-based "Filler'' plug-ins. Instead, LiquidOffice uses a combination of Web, XML, Adobe PDF, and HTML standards to deliver a centralized eForm repository and advanced services for routing, tracking, approval, and processing.
