Tailor Your Forms to Your Needs

Your business forms are a very important part of your business. You rely on forms to communicate with your employees, your customers, and your suppliers. If your forms aren’t right, your communication isn’t right either. Using standard forms gives you the lowest cost, but what do you do if the standard forms don’t meet your needs?

Get SouthWare Forms, an optional adapter for the SouthWare Excellence Series™ that lets you create alternate formats for the standard forms available from SouthWare™ products. You can add data, change data, move data, or remove data from the standard forms to create multiple alternate formats for each form. You may then define the situations when an alternate format should be used. Best of all, these changes don’t require source code changes and will be compatible with the future revisions you get from SouthWare(1).

With SouthWare Forms, you can:

  • Get the “excellence look” you want from your business forms
  • Adapt forms printing to match your non-standard forms -- add additional data to your forms, change the positioning of data on your forms and omit standard fields from forms
  • Have alternate form formats for different situations, such as a different invoice format for each location
  • Get custom changes that stay compatible with future revisions

If you want the power and benefits of customized forms without any long-term maintenance costs, get SouthWare Forms™.
