PDF is the standard when it comes to printing documents, but it is far from perfect when used to fill out forms. That’s why Quik! Forms are browser-based – built in HTML 4 and HTML 5.
Quik! has reinvented enterprise forms automation by making forms fillable, interactive, secure and signable all from within virtually any web browser with no third party software to install.
Take a look at how many ways HTML-based web forms are better than PDF!
Here are the most common reasons customers choose Quik! HTML forms over PDF forms.
Quik! HTML vs. Adobe PDF
Fill Out Forms On Any Device
Quik! forms work on any device with a common web browser - PDF forms only work on PCs (no iPad, Mac, Android, etc.).
Eliminate Helpdesk Issues
95% of customer help-desk issues related to forms are due to PDF and Adobe issues – Quik! eliminates the majority, if not all, of these calls.
Save Data On Forms
Save data entered into Quik! forms to a PDF and to the browser (or your server) – native PDF forms require additional software (i.e. Adobe Acrobat) to be saved with data.
Customize Form Viewer
Quik! Forms are easily customizable (e.g. your logo, styles, language, controls and more) - PDF forms cannot be customized without significant effort and programming.
Control Attributes at Runtime
Quik! form fields offer more control attributes than PDF, including field input masks and validations, required field controls, font and border color controls, etc.
Touch Screen Design
Quik! Forms are specifically designed for both non-touch and touch-enabled devices to improve usability, while PDFs are not.
Create Form Groups
The Quik! Forms Engine includes web services to perform form grouping by both user and system administrator (to share form groups with all users).
Turnkey Website To Deploy Forms
Quik! includes a turnkey website that offers form searching, form grouping, client data integration and field mapping, and access to 100% of the source code for customization.
Certified for E-Signing
Quik! Forms are certified and pre-integrated for e-signing with DocuSign.
No Extra Software Required
Submit Quik! Forms data electronically for processing, validations and more - PDF forms require additional software in order to submit forms.
Create Household Form Bundles
Create householding form bundles and duplicate forms in the same package with different client data with Quik! Forms (creating duplicate forms in a PDF package does not allow for separate data to be entered – all data is duplicated onto the duplicate copies of the forms).
Avoid Field Data Conflicts
Duplicate checkboxes in HTML form bundles do not uncheck the other matching checkboxes, which is what happens in PDF forms.
Add Alternate Data
Quik!’s Alternate Data Buttons enable users to pre-fill any client record onto form sections with a single click - changing data on PDFs can only be done by re-keying the data.
Expire Forms Automatically
Expire HTML forms automatically within 10 days or less to ensure users don't download and save a PDF form to reuse, which leads to rejecting outdated forms.
Managed Data Model
Greatly improve the amount of data prefilled onto forms with Quik!. All Quik! Forms are built with roles so users can prefill forms more completely with several client records. PDF forms do not have a field definition or data model, you must design your own.
Deploy Forms via Web Service
Use Quik! as a web service instead of installed software, which is ideal for Apps (iPad, Android, etc.), java-based environments and third-party solutions (e.g. SalesForce).
Process In Multilple Formats
Receive completed forms in PDF and XML formats to use in your business process.
Quik! Forms can be integrated into any system, including cloud-based services (e.g. SalesForce), native apps in iOS and Android, server-based applications, websites, desktop software and more.
Fast Form Preview
Create form searches with Quik! that return thumbnail images of forms and full previews.
Add and Display Attachments
Add external attachments to Quik! Forms when printing and signing (e.g. copy of a client ID, trust agreements, etc.).
Control End-User Security
Quik!’s security model enables you to host and serve HTML forms within your domain and applications, giving you control over your end-users and related security.
The possibilities with Quik!’s HTML forms are endless. Our goal is to provide customers with a solution that is flexible, extensible, secure and within their control. Our mission is to empower your best work and the Quik! Forms Engine and HTML forms make virtually anything related to completing paperwork possible.
