BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--StreamServe® Inc., the global leader in Enterprise Document Presentment, today announced it has entered into an agreement with Adobe Systems Incorporated to provide support for XML Forms Architecture (XFA), the format of Adobe® LiveCycle® Designer software, the industry leader for XML form design. This collaboration represents a shared vision for the future of personalized document generation that provides a common design environment for the production and distribution of business-critical documents in support of both interactive and high-volume output processes.
XFA combines the data and capabilities of XML with rich presentation capabilities for multi-channel delivery, including PDF. Adobe LiveCycle Designer enables the creation of dynamic XFA form templates. This award-winning software supports XML data and schema bindings, enhances document security with template designs for digital signatures, and enables compliance with government accessibility requirements for online forms. With it, enterprises can extend their investment in XML technologies, applications and development expertise by enabling anyone with Adobe Reader® software to participate in secure, interactive data capture processes that extend to customers, partners or suppliers. Examples include new account applications, bid response or correspondence generation.
“Companies today are focused on engaging their customers—to increase customer loyalty and commitment to the brand,” said Melissa Webster, program director of IDC’s Content & Digital Media Technologies group. “We see tremendous opportunity for companies to leverage a dynamic enterprise publishing platform to create an electronic conversation with the customer—essentially, to enable sophisticated mass-personalized customer interactions. An integrated electronic forms capability is key for doing just that.”
