The days of paperwork drudge are numbered! With Forms Master, you can design your own customised forms, surveys, questionnaires, statutory returns, expense claims and internal reports at the click of a mouse. Utilising a standard 'browser' format, and incorporating WebLabs' celebrated intuitive interface, Forms Master will transform your customer outreach and your internal paperwork without the need for specialised IT skills or training.

Whether collecting clinical data in webforms for an NHS Trust, creating public consultation mechanisms for a Government Department or communicating with the clients of a law, banking or manufacturing Forms Master allows you to seamlessly integrate information collection, management and analysis and to improve the quality of your outreach. Flexible enough to meet your needs and to cut down on unnecessary box-ticking, our e-Forms are also designed to meet with common accessibility standards like W3C, WA1A, WA3-A, and to comply with the Government Interoperability Framework, e-GIF.

Intelligent Forms:

Forms Master enables the creation of responsive and intelligent forms that react to the user's answers and follow the control, transmission and archival procedures defined by the administrator. The information can be shared with other departments for further processing as an email or as XML, facilitating effortless integration with clerical and legacy systems. You can even store standardised forms and questions in a Common Property Library and allow their extraction in different display formats by different users.

On implementing the Forms Master e-Forms system, many of our UK eGovernment clients have observed substantial improvements in their efficiency and reliability, resulting in increases in their BVPI scores, and a lowering of the cost of compliance with the e-Government Agenda and the Gershon report recommendations.

Flexible Solutions:

Forms Builder

Working through a standard web browser, the Forms Builder module allows you to design and build your own customised forms on-line. The forms can be customised according to your needs, to meet government accessibility standards, for example, or adapting the forms' appearance to correspond with the theme and aesthetics of your website.

Each question on the form can be given its own rules, method of verification, display options, level of security and embedded information, allowing you to create precisely the kind of interface you desire and producing a secure, reliable and streamlined procedural protocol.

Forms Filler

The same principles of intelligence and flexibility apply to the Forms Filler module, which allows users to easily access and to accurately complete the form online through a standard web browser. The form responds to the answers given, alerts the user to incorrect or incomplete answers, assists them through help messages or supplementary information and even allows them to save partially completed forms for completion at a later time.

With the Forms Filler module, customers and users can respond easily and securely, without the hindrance of unclear or irrelevant questions, speeding the process and thereby encouraging participation. Previous clients have reported as much as a 20% increase in public participation as a result of switching to Forms Master

Forms Audit

The increase in response will be easy to see because Forms Master also captures and processes data on the completed forms, allowing you to see rate of response and incidence and nature of partial completion, enabling you to adjust or redesign the form if required. In addition, the Forms Audit library records information about the history of every form - its name, designer, function, and when and by whom it was modified or published. In an archive of many hundreds of forms, the correct one can be located by searching via name, description, designer or department, ensuring your ability to keep track of administrative changes at the click of a mouse.
