icomedias, manufacturer of the software solution HybridForms for mobile forms and automation, is now a member of ICT Austria. The Graz company specializes in linking Microsoft technologies with user-centered design for mobile business applications.

Stricter compliance guidelines, more complex processes, and growing demands placed on the same personnel and financial resources are the types of challenges that require companies to rethink and redesign multiple work processes. By mobilizing forms-based professional applications with HybridForms, organizations and companies can achieve a quick ROI and higher productivity through optimized processes, better data quality, immediately available analyses, and integrated workflows and data transfer from and to third-party systems. “Collaborations with reliable partners are highly important to us”, says Managing Director Christian Ekhart. “That’s why we were happy to accept the invitation to become a member of ICT Austria. Innovation, networking and long-term relationships are a key focus here – these are central values at icomedias as well. We’re looking forward to collaborating and exchanging ideas with the other members.”

Mobile productivity with digital forms – both online and off

HybridForms is the powerful software for digital forms and mobile data collection by icomedias, based on standard systems Windows 10 and SharePoint. The solution supports companies undergoing digital transformations and looking to make previously paper-based processes mobile. The entire process of form generation, data collection, recording, analysis and storage is entirely digital and structured. Innovative functions like mobile data collection in offline mode, signing forms with biometric signature, and a dictation function for longer text fields have decisive advantages for companies. Work processes are made quicker and more efficient, and risks are reduced. In addition to the app for Windows 10, the online WebFiller also supports other mobile devices like Android, iPhone or iPad, as well as Windows 7, XP and MacOS in the back office. This makes HybridForms the ideal company-wide form solution, and a great replacement, for the instance, for the discontinued Microsoft InfoPath.

HybridForms can be used universally in all business scenarios, and is also available in special editions for Public Safety, First Responders, Healthcare and Industry 4.0. Customers such as the Cantonal Police Force of Bern, the hospital operator Spital STS AG in Switzerland, the nationwide organization Camp Australia, or a German producer of turbochargers are already working with this mobile form system. Implementation and support can be provided either directly by manufacturer icomedias or by local IT partners on site.
