States of Louisiana and Arizona select Ultraforms® Technology to eliminate data entry costs

SACRAMENTO, California - August 1, 2004
Dataintro Software, the leading provider of 2D Barcode generation technologies for PDF Forms, is proud to announce that the Department of Revenue for the States of Louisiana and Arizona, respectively, have selected Ultraforms® Technology. This will allow both Louisiana and Arizona to eliminate data entry costs, thanks to the ability to deliver 2D barcode capabilities to their taxpayers through online PDF forms.

"Another excellent cost saving approach has been identified and is in the process of being implemented. The Government Information Technology Agency (GITA) and the ADOA State Procurement Office (SPO) have approved DOR to purchase Ultraforms® Technology by Dataintro Software. This technology imbeds 2D barcode on all tax forms that are made available to taxpayers online in a fillable format. It also provides taxpayers, who prefer not to file electronically, with an alternative that offers expedited processing over a standard paper return. In addition, it will enable DOR to further streamline processing of a wide variety of tax forms, eliminating the need to key data from the returns. The E-file Team looks forward to putting the new technology in place with the 2004 income tax forms." said J. Elliott Hibbs, Director of Arizona DOR.

Ultraforms® has been developed to perform on top of one of the most popular and widespread platforms, Adobe Acrobat® Reader. No further installations are required. Ultraforms® works from version 4.0 and up. There is no need for additional plug-ins or lengthy time-consuming downloads.

By Embedding Ultraforms® Technology in PDF forms, both States will be able to produce their own 2D barcodes, and will give the taxpayer a free opportunity to generate 2D bar-coded tax returns. The only requirement will be to have a version of Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.0 or higher installed.

"Ultraforms® immediately reduces the amount of time, effort and budget necessary to capture the data from paper returns. Until now, 2D barcode applications needed three or four months to develop. With Ultraforms®, that's history. Once your fillable PDF form is ready, it can be deployed within minutes. It really is a revolutionary technology!" says Enrique Ramos, Director of Business Development at Dataintro Software.
