Quadrant Adds QR Code Support to Formtastic
April 9, 2013 Alex Woodie
Quadrant Software recently issued a new release of its forms management software that supports the Quick Response (QR) codes that can be used to communicate Web hyperlinks through a camera on a smart phone.
Quadrant says that QR code support was added to Formtastic version 5.4.5, which shipped more than two years ago. Formtastic can now add QR codes to forms generated from IBM i spooled files, thereby boosting internal and external communications.
Quadrant also announced that it has improved its intelligent mail barcode functionality to comply with a requirement by the United States Postal Service for customer eligibility for bulk mailing discounts. Formtastic can locate a user’s mail address within the spool file and transforms it into a 4-State Barcode, Quadrant says.
In other news, Quadrant announced a partnership with Sage, a developer of business applications that primarily run on Windows servers. As a certified 300 and 500 Silver Level Development Partner with Sage, Quadrant will gain access to certain Sage resources that will help it develop output management solutions based on QuadraDocV that work with Sage’s accounting products.
QuadraDocV is Quadrant’s flagship product today. The software offering installs on VMware or Microsoft HyperV hypervisor to create a communications appliance that not only provides document management and distribution capabilities, but supports fax over IP (FoIP) software from Dialogic.
