Objective
• Produce Invoices & Purchase Orders
• Automatically route forms to appropriate people
eFORMz Demonstration
Allen Organs produce over 35 forms including; Purchase Orders, Sales
Orders, Invoices, Quotes, Packing Lists, Statements, Work Orders, and
Shipments. What makes this an intriguing eFORMz user is not the volume
of forms they are producing but what they are doing with these forms –
the backend processing. With eDirect and the use of the Conditional
Language they are able to route the reports to who needs them based
on conditions either by printing directly to their printer or emailing as a
.pdf attachment.
