FoD-OMR runs either as a Windows program or as a called routine from one of your computer systems - which is why we generally supply two registered copies, one to design with using Windows and a second batch CMS (batch-type) program installed as part of the computer system that contributes the data to be incorporated into each form (typically registered number, date and form type that are encoded on the form and read by the scanner as well as details of name and address printed as text so users know what they are looking at).

FoD-OMR combines the simplicity of point and click desktop publishing with a full array of powerful editing tools to make your forms creation more effective.

Forms Customization

Complementing FoD-OMR powerful array of editing tools is a convenient database merging feature. This feature allows you to merge data from a database onto your form. With merge fields embedded in your form, you can customize each form to display the details for a specific individual.
