TELEform and Alechemy – A Single Solution For Forms Processing, Storage and Retrieval

Cardiff Software(TM) Inc., the leading supplier of automated data collection solutions, today announced a strategic marketing and development alliance with Information Management Research(TM) Inc. (IMR), a leader in data storage management solutions.

The companies will offer an integrated Windows 95/NT 32-bit data collection, capture, storage and retrieval solution.

TELEform(R) is an integrated software program which provides departmental, high-volume, and enterprise-wide data collection solutions for faxed, scanned, electronic, and Internet/Intranet forms. Partnering the Alchemy(R) Data Storage and Retrieval Program and Cardiff Software’s TELEform provides a cost effective solution for automated data capture and secure storage of faxed and scanned forms.

“Alchemy is a natural fit with TELEform,” according to Dennis Clerke, Cardiff Software’s COO, “We have developed an integrated link which automatically exports the data collected in TELEform directly to the Alchemy CD-R storage and retrieval program. This alliance will allow companies to store unrestricted amounts of data and provide easy access to that information when and where it is needed.”

“We will recommend Teleform as the data collection standard for Alchemy users,” according to Dan Lucarini, vice president of marketing and business development at IMR, “The real power of this integration is the ability for companies to easily capture and store unlimited customer records and data at a very low cost and still with fast retrieval. This will greatly simplify a company’s data management system.”
