FormRouter adds support
FormRouter today announced new support for non-Windows environments including Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X, and Unix. FormRouter's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution enables non-technical subscribers to deploy intelligent PDF, HTML, Flash and other form formats in minutes with no servers and no programming. Upon submission, completed forms, optional attachments and entered data are routed securely to an electronic data store located on the form owner's desktop in near real-time. The FormRouter Client Tool enables one-click, secure download of form- collected data directly to popular database formats or text files. The Mono Project provides the necessary software to develop and run .NET client and server applications on Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X, Windows, and Unix.
"We have seen a growing interest in our forms business, especially from Macintosh and Linux users," says FormRouter CEO, Chris M. Pieper. "With this upgrade, we can now offer the FormRouter advantage to prospects running environments other than just Windows."
Sponsored by Novell, the Mono open-source project has an active and enthusiastic contributing community and is positioned to become the leading choice for development of Linux applications. FormRouter VP of Engineering Dave Conorozzo commented, "We have been following the Mono project with great interest as a creative way to offer cross-platform options to FormRouter customers. The software has really matured into a serious development platform."
