Digicomp partners with Quark to introduce next-generation on-demand forms solutions
Press release from the issuing company
DENVER - June 20, 2006 - Quark Inc. announced today a strategic alliance with Digicomp Inc., a forms and security-document solutions company. Digicomp, an existing XTensions software developer for QuarkXPress, has expanded its relationship with Quark to harness the power of Quark Dynamic Document Server (QuarkDDS) and design a next-generation suite of forms design and workflow applications, enabling them to meet growing customer needs for on-demand form solutions.
"We are very excited to extend our relationship with Quark and bring this flexible, open, and intuitive Web-based forms solution to market," said David Leland, president of Digicomp. "We have been working with QuarkXPress since our inception and value Quark's decision to embrace open standards. This Digicomp solution will enable our customers to replace their outdated, manual systems and adopt an automated and user-friendly solution through QuarkDDS."
"Digicomp has been a valued XTensions developer for over a decade, and we are happy to expand our relationship," said Richard Pasewark, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Quark. "QuarkDDS is a perfect fit to support Digicomp's initiative to bring new process-automation to forms solutions. QuarkDDS optimizes Web-based QuarkXPress workflows to provide on-demand publishing applications - a growing business imperative for many customers."
Digicomp integrated the QuarkDDS technology to help automate the creation, maintenance, approval, and distribution of design-rich electronic forms on demand. Using QuarkDDS, Digicomp provides customers with the ability to create, view, and edit a QuarkXPress
template using a Web browser. Digicomp was impressed with the ability of QuarkDDS to provide electronic forms on the Web and dynamically create forms while leveraging the design capabilities of QuarkXPress. In cases when customer information is available in a database, that information can be pre-populated in the form for customer convenience.
Digicomp's three QuarkDDS-powered servers
Powered by QuarkDDS, Digicomp has released three server versions of their existing industry-leading form design software:
- FormsX Document Server: Web-based template-driven forms-management solution that streamlines the process of creating and managing business forms.
- eFormsX Document Server: Generates dynamic PDF forms on the fly and can pre-populate data (such as personal information) to ensure ease of use and efficiency.
SecureX Document Server: Generates a PDF file with a unique security band that embeds variable data so that users can authenticate sensitive documents without software or scanners.
