SNOHOMISH, Wash.—March 21, 2018—Minisoft Inc., a leading provider of forms generation, document application development, transactional email, two-sided thermal label and multi-carrier shipping solutions, is pleased to introduce a supplemental update to eFORMz Version 11. This latest release of eFORMz empowers users to shorten development times while speeding up deployments of go-to-market initiatives. Enhancements include:
- Security improvements
- NetSuite compatibility improvements, including support for token-based authentication, in keeping with NetSuite’s current recommendations and future integration standard.
- Support for SSH key based authentication, providing more robust security in Unix environments.
- Support for caching Microsoft SharePoint’s “single sign on” (SSO) token.
- PDF enhancements
- Conditionally print PDF attachments at the end of a print job, such as terms and conditions, warranties, Prop 65 warnings and other forms.
- Support for PDF/A-3, which allows users to embed any file format within a PDF/A file. eFORMz also supports ZUGFeRD, based on PDF/A‑3, which is the preferred format for electronic invoices in Germany and a standard within the European Union.
- New PDF parser options have been added to enhance the process of capturing data from PDFs.
- Usability enhancements
- New form layouts feature. When enabled, this feature creates custom layout lines in the eFORMz Composer, making it easier to quickly create highly specialized forms and labels.
- Box elements within the eFORMz Composer can now be rotated, facilitating easier design of dynamic forms.
- New procedures have been added which increase the speed and efficiency of passing data between eFORMz projects.
- Support for the Printronix PGL print language. eFORMz is able to take a FedEx/UPS/USPS shipping label formatted for ZPL printing and convert it into native PGL (Printronix language) and then send that shipping label to be printed on the Printronix printer.
- New logging improvements for easier issue resolution.
- PDF417 barcode enhancements to conform to FedEx specifications.
- Support for Java 9. Java 1.8 is still recommended at the time of this release. eFORMz can run on earlier versions of Java that Oracle no longer supports, but it’s not recommended.
