State of Maryland selects Ultraforms® Technology to eliminate data entry costs
Sacramento, California - December 15, 2004
Dataintro Software, the leading provider of 2D Barcode generation technologies for PDF Forms, is proud to announce that the Revenue Administration Division of the Comptroller of Maryland, has selected Ultraforms® Technology. This exciting technology will allow Maryland taxpayers to fill online PDF forms and capture the printed data error-free with the Ultraforms® 2D barcode capabilities.
This technology enables Maryland to eliminate data entry costs substantially. Maryland joins Alabama, Oklahoma, Missouri, Louisiana and Arizona in moving ahead with 2D barcode initiatives. The ability not only to be able to deliver error-free data from printed documents without plug-ins or external applications, but to be able to support Acrobat versions from 4.0 and up are major reasons why states are moving towards this new and exciting technology.
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, the State of Maryland will be able to produce its 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.
"The Comptroller of Maryland is confident that 2D Barcode generating software and features in Ultraforms® from DataIntro Software will help us to more efficiently process paper returns downloaded from our website at www.marylandtaxes.com for those taxpayers choosing to file traditional paper returns instead of electronically. It is not that we want to encourage the use of paper returns, but if we are going to receive paper returns, we have to process them smarter to reduce costs and improve throughput." says Thaddeus S. Russell, Deputy Director, Revenue Administration Division.
"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.
