UWI.Com and Computer Generated Solutions Offer Alternative to Document Imaging
Leading IT Consulting Firm Selects Internet Forms Pioneer To Offer Fully Digital, Legally Binding Business Forms
SAN FRANCISCO, California. November 16, 1998.
UWI.Com, The Internet Forms Company, announced today that Computer Generated Solutions Inc. (CGS), a leading provider of information technology services to companies throughout the world, will offer UWI.Com's XML forms creation and distribution package as an alternative to outdated document processing systems. This follows the addition of CGS to UWI.Com's growing network of Value Added Resellers (VARs).
"It frustrates many of our clients that they need to rely on paper for security and record keeping even though they have electronic information processing systems," said Yolanda Parker, Director of CGS's Imaging and Document Management Group. "Dependency on paper is inefficient, wasteful and very expensive. Simply put, it is obsolete. Finally, with UWI.Com's InternetForms System we can recommend an affordable, all-digital solution that meets our clients' needs for secure and reliable forms processing."
The InternetForms System was designed with enterprise-wide document management systems in mind. Although traditional "fill-and-print" electronic forms systems automate some processing tasks, these systems still rely on paper to provide secure and accurate records. An InternetForm removes the need for paper by creating an XML document that can remain digital throughout its lifetime, and is legally binding when digitally signed. Expensive processing steps such as printing and imaging are removed, and InternetForms' built-in data validation, computations, and logic streamline processing by reducing input errors.
"We're excited to have CGS on our team," said Eric Jordan, president and CEO of UWI.Com. "Their astounding rate of growth is proof that they are solving real problems with real solutions. We are proud that our products can help them meet the needs of their clients."
CGS has the expertise necessary to incorporate the InternetForms System into large-scale document management systems. In 1994 the company was listed on Inc. Magazine's 500 as one of the fastest-growing, privately held companies in America. CGS provides comprehensive computer consulting services that address all the needs of an organization, from system design to end user support.
CGS is currently integrating UWI.Com's software at a large Southwest retailer. The application allows new employees to fill out their employment applications, W-4s, I-9s, and other forms online using the corporate intranet. The information is then automatically uploaded to their time recording, payroll, and imaging systems on a daily basis.
"In today's corporate environment of having to do more with less, InternetForms are an excellent tool for Human Resource departments to improve employee productivity, decrease the paper-cycle, and improve their new hire processing," said Parker.
UWI.Com, developer of the first XML Internet forms software, is a leader in the Internet forms software industry. Unlike many publishers, UWI.Com's business forms solution is based on an open standard that is freely available to the public. Global 2000 and public sector clients, including the Office of the Secretary of Defense have deployed InternetForms. UWI.Com's partners include such companies as VeriSign, Datakey Inc., Action Technologies, PenOp, and Intelligent Environments.
