Toppan Forms Launches "FastEntry" New Service that Easily Digitize Application Process
It can be implemented without changing the paper application process flow

November 27, 2014

Information Management Solution provider, Toppan Forms Co., Ltd., (Toppan Forms hereunder), on December 1, will launch a new service called "FastEntry" that allows easy digitization of various application processes without changing the conventional paper application form operation flow.
It can be used for applying credit card point service in stores, various applications over the counter in financial institutions, and application page on client's website for a wide range of users to increase their usage.


The application page optimized for easy viewing and entry on any device regardless of PC, tablet, or smartphone provides benefits to users. The application page is designed and generated together with print data so users can enter information like filling paper applications. Using various support features also simplify user's application process. For example, application on smartphone and tablets, personal identification documents can be submitted using the camera feature. Drivers license can be read using OCR which automatically reflects personal information in the field of the form. It is also possible to use NFC to read personal information in the contact-less chip for data entry into the form.
Allowing clients to implement the service without altering the application process flow is its main selling point. Data captured by "FastEntry" via Toppan Forms' server can either (1) be sent as PDF files in the same format of paper application forms for data entry process, or (2) record the data directly into client's customer database which allows the client to integrate them into the conventional process in any desired format.
Since the print version of application form is generated together with the web version, both versions are automatically revised eliminating the need to manage multiple media separately.
