INDUSTRY NEWS

Business Forms on the Apple iPad

J.P. Terry
CEO, SmartDoc Technologies

We began to talk about business forms on the iPad at this year’s BFMA Forms and Technology Conference in Chicago. Many of you have written to me with your insights on this important subject. Although this is a new topic for BFMA, our collective experience with business forms has relevance for this new device. We can’t let the teenagers have all the fun.
