Intuitive & Innovative Data Capture Forms
Whether implemented as a standalone application or as a client application with the Mi-Forms Server, the Mi-Forms Client provides everything that is needed to complete the other key steps in mobile data capture:
- Pre-fill your forms with existing data
- Verify and Validate
Data from another source may be 'pulled' and used as pre-fill information into a form. This greatly reduces the amount of time spent capturing data, and also reduces possible errors incurred when users are without pre-filled data. Also, Mi-Forms enables captured data to be linked back to the original record source, if needed.
Capture new data using the Mi-Forms Client’s various tools for data capture. The Mi-Forms Client on a Windows Tablet will convert handwriting into machine readable text as you write. Drawings, diagrams, and a number of other data sources may also be captured if needed (images, audio, barcodes, GPS, attachments of any files, etc).
The Mi-Forms Client also works perfectly well on Windows PC devices without handwriting capabilities. Users can simply use the keyboard and mouse to complete the forms instead of handwriting. Mi-Forms also supports Anoto-based digital pens. With digital pens, customers will fill in Anoto-based paper forms, dock the digital pen using your PC, and then allow Mi-Forms to capture and convert the ink into machine readable form.

Verify and Validate
The Mi-Forms Client allows customers to verify handwriting recognition results and validate data relationships (date / time evaluation, business rules, etc.) on their forms in real-time. On the Tablet, verification and validation checks are performed as the user is collecting data at the point of data collection, not later in the office while it is being manually processed. For digital pens, verification and validation checks can be performed on the PC when the pen is docked.
Communicate and share your data with existing enterprise systems. Data may be sent directly from the Mi-Forms Client to a backend system, or from the Mi-Forms Client to the centralized Mi-Forms Server and then to other existing data repositories. Recognized data (text), ink, and form page background data may be exported via a variety of formats (CSV, XML, ODBC, MSJet, Outlook, variety of image formats, PDF and more). Data exports may also be customized for greater flexibility in exporting your data to your existing data system. In fact, the Mi-Forms Client offers a host of options to provide your enterprise with the flexibility to decide how your information is sent to a backend system for near real-time processing.
