Hawaii Department of Taxation selects Ultraforms® Technology to eliminate data entry costs

SACRAMENTO, California - September 01, 2007
The State of Hawaii Department of Taxation (DOTAX), in conjunction with CGI, has selected Ultraforms®, Dataintro's flagship product, to eliminate data entry costs associated with their paper forms data capture process.

CGI initially contacted Dataintro on behalf of Hawaii DOTAX. "We were interested in creating a PDF fillable version of the form that will generate a 2D barcode when printed. We would use this for internal testing, and possibly make the PDF available on the State's web site for use by taxpayers." said James Faubel, lead CGI Consultant on this project.

Over the course of the next month, Dataintro worked with both CGI and Hawaii DOTAX to provide a working prototype. The prototype was a success and with the direction that CGI was able to provide Hawaii DOTAX, a decision was made to purchase and implement Ultraforms® for the upcoming 2008 tax season.

Until recently, DOTAX forms relied on OCR technology for their paper tax forms data capture process. The addition of Ultraforms® technology has been implemented respecting the OCR design requirements of the form, but adding the powerful advantages of 2D barcode generation, thus providing a "best of both worlds" solution, and what is more important, Hawaii did not have to make a technology choice between 2D barcodes and OCR.

Dataintro Software, the leading provider of 2D Barcode generation technologies for PDF forms, prides itself on supporting Tax Revenue Agencies worldwide. This includes providing software products such as Ultraforms®, and the latest member of the Dataintro family PDS®. Support extends to providing professional tax form development services and concludes with expert technical support. As with all of our areas of business Dataintro Software strives to make the end result, a solution to capturing data from paper intensive processes.
