Extend business processes
The ubiquity and flexibility of Adobe Reader software extends the reach of your processes beyond the enterprise, while Adobe LiveCycle Reader Extensions enables special functionality that empowers respondents to be an active part of your key business processes. Internal and external parties can do more than simply view, fill in, and submit documents and forms electronically; they can add comments, dynamically embed data in barcodes, save data locally, and leverage web services — without requiring additional costly software.
By offering an avenue for returning captured data to key applications via SOAP-based interfaces, Reader Extensions further leverages existing investments in critical applications and processes. And with free Adobe Reader, your organization no longer has to worry about maintaining compatible platforms with external parties or mandating that customers and partners purchase proprietary or expensive client software. With this level of collaboration, your organization can help ensure that product and service designs efficiently and accurately incorporate input from all key parties — even vendors and customers — to speed time to market and optimize quality.
Author, update, and decode 2D barcoded forms
2D barcodes provide significantly higher data capacity than a typical 1D barcode. Reader Extensions leverages industry-standard technology to author, update, and decode 2D barcoded, fillable PDF forms. The 2D barcode encodes user-supplied information in real time while the user fills in the form. When the form is printed and submitted by fax or mail, you can use Reader Extensions barcode decoder to efficiently and automatically read the barcode and send the extracted user-supplied form data along in the next step of your process.
Reduce processing costs and errors
Eliminating paper-based processes by moving them online cuts the time and expense your organization spends printing, distributing, processing, and archiving documents. Reader Extensions comes with a variety of LiveCycle services that can embed PDF files with content and data from key applications and perform calculations and validations to create powerful intelligent documents and forms. With electronic forms, there is no need for your employees to reenter data manually, thus reducing errors and processing costs.
Improve security, archiving, and compliance
Respondents can authenticate and digitally sign their documents before returning them, increasing their confidence and satisfaction while preserving sensitive information. PDF allows easy and low-cost indexing, archiving, and retrieval of important documents, including new data provided by respondents. With its ability to retain the visual format of original paper documents, PDF enables regulated industries and government agencies to conduct business using electronic documents, while helping to ensure that all forms, contracts, and documents meet strict regulatory guidelines
