LaserForms.Enterprise is a sophisticated server-based solution that allows Oracle Applications to deliver everything from attractive customer facing business documents to internal management reports. Oracle data can be rearranged and reformatted without reprogramming the Oracle Application.

LaserForms.Enterprise merges the standard Oracle print data with a form template containing fonts, graphics, lines, and barcodes. Its drag-and-drop design tool allows you to create documents that can be printed on blank paper, e-mailed, archived, and made available on the Web. Conditional logic can be applied to facilitate automated distribution of documents to the exact location where they are used.

DocuGuard is a small, cost-effective memory device that connects to the parallel port of a laser printer and eliminates the need for preprinted forms. DocuGuard is used primarily when there is a limited number of print destinations. When installed, your document templates and logos are automatically uploaded to the printer memory from the DocuGuard device.

During the standard print routine, the original output data stream remains unchanged. The data is merged with the template at the printer, greatly reducing the network traffic caused by large file transmissions. This allows your printer to operate at maximum rated speeds.

JetForm Output Pak for use with Oracle E-Business Suite is an Oracle CAI-certified interface solution that integrates directly with the Oracle Reports to extract XML data. The data is merged with a JetForm document template that defines the layout of the document. Document templates are created using an easy-to-use document template design tool. Documents such as purchase orders, invoices, checks, and shipping documents are then dynamically generated for delivery to customers via print, fax, e-mail, or the Web. JetForm Output Pak supports full font control, logos, graphics, barcodes, and calculations, providing extensive forms processing capabilities, as well as supporting formatting for multiple languages and currencies within a single document.
