We have now been successfully using the aforms product for 11 years - the Solothurn number. Experience has shown that we chose the right product and the right company back then.
With AFORMSOLUTION (AFS), online dialogs for data collection (forms) are easily created and efficiently managed. AFS forms are responsive and are available for PCs, mobile devices or as print forms.
Form creation with the aforms designer is simple and user-friendly.
A navigation bar and progress bar can be added to AFS forms
The form data entered is checked on the server side
By offering online help at field, block and form level, AFS forms can be designed to be user-friendly
AFS forms can contain fields for attachments
The application data entered can be saved
The aforms server can offer further forms when confirming receipt of the application (final page).
The effectiveness of AFS is based on the building block principle.
Form dynamics and logic such as showing and hiding elements, validations, calculations or interfaces to third-party systems can be implemented by people without programming knowledge.
AFS forms comply with international and national standards, such as the style guide for online forms 3.0 of the BLSG working group (AT), or essential eCH e-government standards (CH).
AFS is based on JAVA technology on the server side
The use of AFS forms takes place in four steps - an entry page, pages for data entry, checking the data entered and completion with confirmation of the submission.
Forms defined with AFS are stored centrally in an XML repository and are available for PCs, mobile devices and as print forms.
All form components can be customized via CSS parameters.
Every online form defined with AFS is immediately available as a PDF print form without any further effort
Modern software solutions are often a combination of specialized individual components.
AFS is continuously developed according to customer requirements. New AFS versions are regularly made available as part of all-in maintenance.
