inFORM Decisions Announces Two New Products at COMMON
Wednesday, 11 May 2011
iDriver 3.0 multifunction printer device support allows IBM i access to multifunction printer features, while iMap 3.0 is a new version of the company’s powerful data mapping tool.
iDriver 3.0 for Multifunction Printer Device Support on the IBM is a re-architected product that integrates with IFD’s iDocs and allows access to MFP options such as finishing, stapling, hole punching, collating, mailbox/out bins, and more.
Sales of multifunction printer device are on the rise and already have surpassed those of single-function printers. MFP devices are here to stay, and IFD’s iDriver becomes a significant solution in light of IBM’s limitation supporting these very handy functions. As many as 20 different stapling options and up to 15 various hole punching options are supported with iDriver depending on the MFP model.
“With more than a decade of development behind this product with partners like Ricoh and Toshiba, we now have a process and tool within iDriver 3.0 that makes it relatively easy for programmers to add new codes for each new model as it’s released,” says Davis Yokana, product manager for iDriver, inFORM Decisions. “iDriver is less about the MFP models from various manufacturers we support now, and more about how reasonably easy it is for us to add new models,” says Yokana. “MFP printers become obsolete relatively quickly, so this type of design is important.”
iMap 3.0 is the latest version of inFORM’s powerful data mapping tool giving users the ability to define fields for conditional routing, database mapping, and multiple features for designing intelligent, powerful IBM i reports, forms, checks, and other business documents. iMap’s open-designer solution means that any graphic or forms design tool that runs in Windows can be imported into iMap and infused into an IBM i native electronic document.
“iMap is not only a unique open-designer mapping tool, it now offers more ease and power to define complex document applications,” says Dan Forster, president of inFORM Decisions. “Users can define SmartRouting applications (intelligent routing), database mapping, and various types of conditional document scenarios in easy-to-use menus. Native IBM i legacy solutions traditionally accomplished these operations in green screens; in recent years, the concept of drag n’ drop GUI mapping is pretty much a standard… we just took it to a whole new level.”
