Newborn fool here. Just found the site. Surprised to see so little interest in Jetform. I see this company as very well postioned - particularly because of Y2K. I think there is still more potential in Y2K correction particlurly in governmental agencies who are well-known head-in-sand managers and have yet to address y2k conversion. For many operating legacy systems,it makes more sence to up-grade to a new system than to patch a dynasour. Jetform offers some nifty straight through processing solutions. I also note that they have forged some kind of a strategic alliance with big gun Xerox.In addition I have encountered them as the provider of choice buy one of Canada's largest retail mutual fund companies.Bought them at 23.85 (CDN) on the TSE in late June - and am please to report a close of $29.50 (CDN) on Aug 14, despite the general market tumble.
As a government manager I thought I would take my head out of the sand long enough to respond. I think the biggest potential for government agencies is the use of e-forms to reduce duplicative data entry. My agency is looking at a Records and Workflow solution and is conducting a pilot program to test the roll out. FileNet is being used in partner with JetForms for the e-forms. When we got proposals a number of the proposers selected JetForms as their e-form solution.I understand the State of Wisconsin is using JetForms for a major rollout in State government.P.S. I understand the "head in the sand" reference. Often government is the last to embrace new technology. Some of that comes from penny pinching budgeteers and some comes for the lack of a profit motive. Public or private I think we all want to do a good job and be productive. I believe products like e-forms will go a long way to that end.
Sorry to cast dispersions on your career. I really mean it, mea culpaBozette
Thank you for being sensitive to my feelings. I don't have any hard feelings about the comments that were made. I often joke about being a government worker myself, even though I always try to be a professional. I think we're on this board to learn and share and I appreciate your input.
