SOLVED! Old Problem. Created a Bi-Directional Transformation between MS Access and Adobe Acrobat

 

PDF Fillable Forms are a mainstay in many business industries today, in Government forms, Tax forms, Insurance forms, Real Estate forms, and more. These forms contain valuable customer data, but that data is too often stuck in PDF format. This means that the company is not able to capture data and leverage on it – a problem that could cost a company huge opportunity losses.

Over the last 25 years, Help4Access has helped more than 800+ companies with database applications, creating solutions for some of the biggest companies in the world like Wells Fargo, Hewitt Packard and Google, as well as many smaller pre-IPO start-up type companies. Through our extensive experience on database applications, we have devised an effective solution to extract and insert data from these PDF fillable forms to your database.

Read on to find out how being able to capture customer data can help grow your company.

Why is Customer Data Important?

Customer data can be used to develop revenue growth strategies, like upselling and customer retention. A survey conducted by McKinsey & Company shows that companies that meticulously leverage on customer analytics, “are more than twice as likely to generate above-average profits as those that don’t. They also outperform their peers across the entire customer lifecycle, are nine times more likely to enjoy superior customer loyalty, and a whopping 23 times more likely to outperform less analytical peers on new-customer acquisition.”

Every time a customer submits a filled-out form, important data is obtained that helps your company create a targeted personalized experience that can drive engagement and increase revenue. However, in order to do this, you must be able to make these data actionable and this can only be possible by being able to tap into a large amount of data to start with. If you fail to take advantage of these valuable data, you could lose your customers right after the first engagement.

This is the problem we see with most companies that use PDF fillable forms. Valuable customer data are stuck in PDF format and are not fed into the database that could process it into high-quality and accurate information.
