PDFExpert for Filling in PDF forms on Tablets and Mobile Devices

Monday, November 11th, 2013

Many customers of our SecureForm service create PDF forms for their staff to fill in while “on the go”.  E.g. order forms, contact forms, inventory tracking forms, etc.  However, while PDFs can be viewed on most devices, tablets and phones do not usually have functionality that enables filling out PDF forms and submitting them properly for processing.  (The Adobe App does not support PDF form submission on mobile devices)

We have found that PDFExpert does a wonderful job of this on both iPad and iPhone.  With PDFExpert, you can:

  1. Fill out and submit PDF forms.  It works seamlessly with LuxSci SecureForm PDF form processing service, to enable you to receive your submitted form data immediately and in whatever format you require. It’s the only iPhone application that can fill PDF forms.
  2. Sign PDF documents with a handwritten signature
  3. Annotate PDF documents quickly and easily
  4. Handles huge PDF documents very easily with fast scrolling

Note that signatures and annotations to PDF forms can be submitted to the server and received only if your PDF form is configured to submit its data “as a complete PDF”.

PDFExpert is ideal to enable your staff-on-the-go to work quickly and efficiently with PDF forms and to include handwritten signatures directly in these documents.  Having written signatures on your submitted PDF forms is especially useful for organizations requiring HIPAA compliance and/or legal authorizations.  Combined with LuxSci MobileSync, PDF Expert offers a complete mobile solution for compliant management of calendars, contacts, tasks, notes, email, and forms.
