Stroma Software is proud to present Formation, a new enterprise application, opening up the realms of digital form generation and completion to all UK industries. Formation Software removes the strain of increasing development costs by providing a Windows platform for users to easily design their own suite of business forms and then offers a multi-purpose mobile retrieval process for users completing the forms on the move.
Stroma has recognised that many businesses suffer from inflated administrative costs, inefficient record keeping and therefore spiralling overheads. Formation Software is designed as a solution to these problems. It digitises many traditional business operational processes and synchronises data in real time from the field, via mobile tablets, to a back end management system. Save on data usage as Formation detects available Wi-Fi connections before transferring large files back to the office. Data is encrypted to further enhance security, without compromising fast, accurate and simple data transfer.
Formation Software is readily available in two versions: Standard and Professional. Standard is built to cater for any business with a premade suite of industry-ready forms. The creative expansion offered by the Professional suite allows flexible adaptation to suit the industry related project.
The fast and flexible business application is available on Windows, plus Apple iOS, Android devices and Web Portal to deliver an accessible alternative to cumbersome, time-consuming paperwork. All forms and frameworks used by a business can instead be replicated in Formation Software with administrative ease, with the added benefit of integrating additional data collection techniques such as video/image capture, voice recognition and document/image annotations.
Key to Formation Software is its flexibility. At concept stage businesses can choose from an extensive stock of prebuilt forms to manage processes such as administration tasks, expenses, mileage, order forms, registers, delivery notes and many more. Alternatively, clients can simply create unique data collection forms with a user-friendly ‘drag and drop’ form design tool. This is fully scalable and capable of mirroring requirements from SMEs to large enterprises and corporations.
The tiered access application enables forms/documents to be prepopulated and then assigned to specific individuals within the company or by department. Field based staff are provided with a plethora of data capture techniques including text, numeric, calculations, images, video, audio, postcode lookup, dynamic grids and barcode scanner. Formation Software’s enterprise application delivers business efficiency savings in document creation, data collection and management.
Formation also promises secure data collection and storage. It is ideal for businesses who want to present a professional approach to customers as personalised company logos and branding comes as standard. This is achieved through the Formation Management Studio, a central management portal to give complete control over forms activity. Stroma has already seen interest in Formation software from the retail, technology, education and healthcare sectors with many more businesses expected to follow suit. The software has already proven its ability to digitise and manage many traditional paper-based tasks such as stock audits, insurance forms, vehicle inspections and manifests. The features of this enterprise application are:
Full training on the software is offered to clients and technical assistance is provided during the initial integration alongside long term software assurance contracts to ensure clients receive newly upgraded software features first. Formation Software is a landmark release for Stroma Software. With a track record of high quality in-house developments of software applications now used extensively across the energy industry, Stroma has now applied this knowledge to bring a fast, flexible, paperless software tool to UK businesses.
