Bottomline Technologies today announced the release of Create!form v6.0, a feature-rich update to its document output management software. Bottomline’s Create!form software products streamline and electronically-enable output formatting and delivery of business documents for a wide range of business applications and platforms, leveraging existing IT investments for rapid return on investment. Create!form v6.0 features an updated user interface, enhanced print performance, dynamic document repagination, calculations, ODBC lookups, and many more additions that can help save time and resources while maximizing the value of existing data.

Bottomline Technologies’ Vice President and General Manager, Kurt Mueffelmann, said, “Bottomline’s Create!form product suite provides compelling value to organizations seeking to reduce or eliminate the resources and high cost of paper-based output. Once implemented, many customers report that Create!form adds further value by enhancing business process management functionality throughout the organization, providing ongoing return on investment. To this end, Bottomline’s Create!form v6.0 has added many powerful new features that can help our customers save even more time, resources, and money, while streamlining the design, personalization, delivery, and archiving of business-critical transactional documents.”

Bottomline’s Create!form distributor in Canada, TeamCain, had the opportunity to review the product prior to its release to the market. TeamCain Director of Business Development, Michael Guerin, said, “Create!form v6.0 is a very robust, enterprise-class product loaded with new features to which our customers will definitely respond. Powerful new functionality such as dynamic document repagination, data calculations and intelligent tables will provide great value to our existing clients. When you combine these important enhancements with the others featured in this release, including variable subforms and the new built-in reprint management facility, we see this release as one of the most compelling output solutions available on the market today.”

Create!form is a server-based solution that allows organizations to leverage output from existing ERP, desktop accounting or home grown systems, to provide enhanced capabilities for the automated reformatting, management, distribution, archiving and Web self-service enablement of transactional documents.

Some of the key features of Create!form v6.0 include:

Dynamic Document Repagination – Adjusts repagination automatically, based on incoming data, to reduce output file, e-mail attachment, and archive size, for faster processing, reduced archive bandwidth, and lower fax expenses.

Data Calculations – Enables the calculation and insertion of data such as page subtotals in repaginated documents, tax rate conversion, and more.

Intelligent Data Tables – Streamline formatting and management of repeating line-item data, allowing users to quickly and easily create true auto-expanding, auto-structuring tables with unlimited sorting and grouping capability.

Enhanced User Interface – Simplifies form design with live output preview, data input tree and thumbnail preview; and enables rapid design, data mapping, and proof-as-you-go validation.

Create!form v6.0 also features faster processing, enables simultaneous queue processing, prints Create!form output to both PostScript and non-PostScript printers (including PCL), and includes a searchable, built-in reprint management utility. It is compatible with other Bottomline products, including Create!archive, Create!stream, Create!print, Create!email, Create!fax, CheckDefense and Create!form ACH modules.

Create!form will be giving demonstrations of v6.0 at the PeopleSoft Connect Conference, Booth 825, September 21-23, 2004 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA.
