Wish your Web Site Form submissions could turn into PDFs?

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

Would you like this work flow?

  1. People fill out forms on your web site
  2. They press “Submit”
  3. You get that submissions as PDFs that looks just like you need them to

It is simple; we find many organizations are looking for this because either:

  • Their people are used to processing documents that look a specific way — and if their web site submissions could look like the forms people are used to … then processing accuracy is improved and change is minimized
  • PDFs are a standard way of saving and archiving documents
  • Maybe you also want to collect a signature on your web form and have the PDF signed

Most web form processing solutions do not have the capacity to produce flattened, custom PDFs from your web form submissions; almost none can also do it securely, in a HIPAA-compliant manner.

SecureForm: Give your customers access to their form submissions

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

Many times when a customer fills out a form on your website, they want a copy for their own records. Providing this copy of the submitted data often takes manual effort on your behalf to search your Inbox, WebAides Documents, or database, extract the appropriate file, and email the file as an attachment back to the individual who filled it out.

Of course, this presumes that the submittee entered their email address accurately, and that you send the form back to their correct address. When sending a copy via this method, sensitive information such as medical data that needs to be HIPAA compliant could possibly be sent to the wrong person or insecurely, resulting in a possible breach and violation!

With LuxSci SecureForm it is easy to securely provide the person submitting the form a copy, automatically and immediately after they submit your form.

Give your PDF Form users a Personalized Success Page

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

Fillable PDF forms are nice, but one down side is that the only thing that you can give the end users after s/he clicks on the submit button is a static PDF file (i.e. “Thank you for your submission…”).

LuxSci SecureForm service now enables you to dynamically personalize this success PDF.

  1. Make the Success PDF also a PDF form with some or all of the same fields that your original PDF form has
  2. SecureForm can fill in these form fields in the Success PDF with the user submitted data.
  3. The resulting form is then given back to the user (flattened or not … up to you)

Dynamic Success PDFs make it a snap to have personalized success pages or to give the user back a copy of the submitted PDF.  You could also have a copy of the submitted data emailed to the end user.

Private Labeling SecureForm

Monday, February 10th, 2014

LuxSci’s SecureForm service enables you to quickly make your web site or PDF forms secure and HIPAA compliant. Receive the form data, including uploaded files, via secure email or download the data securely from LuxSci’s web interface.  It also supports insecure form posts and delivery, making the usual form-to-email process easy to setup and protected from form Spam.

Typically, when using SecureForm, your web or PDF form will post to a secure web site address (URL) that is provided by LuxSci in the LuxSci.com domain name.  I.e. something like “https://secureform.luxsci.com/…”.  Once the form data is processed, the end user is redirected to a success or failure web page on your site (for web forms), or is shown a success or failure PDF that you provide (for PDF forms).  I.e. under most conditions, the end user will never see the domain name to which the form is posted.

For resellers or businesses who wish to use their own web site address in their forms so as to brand the secure form posts and hide the fact that LuxSci is the back end, perhaps something like “https://forms.yourdomain.com/…”, LuxSci has an easy solution: Private Labeling.
