From scanned documents to fillable web forms

The way we create forms has improved a lot over time. Aside from switching from paper forms to digital ones, we now provide an even easier option to create a form - and it’s based on a machine learning tool. So instead of building a form from square one (or field one), why not start with an already populated form canvas?

We understand your unique needs and come to lend a hand in your company’s day to day life. A lot of our customers are facing the challenge of translating paper forms - and even handwriting - to web forms. This document digitization tool will allow you to go paperless in the office in no time.

Use case scenarios

Digitize a paper form

Let’s say you want to show a team member how you want a form to look and you draw a sketch on a piece of paper. Instead of creating it from scratch, he will be able to photograph it with his smartphone and then import the photo file within our form building platform. Due to its form recognition features, our image digitizer will show editing options so that your web form takes the desired structure.



Convert a PDF into a fillable form

You receive by email one or more PDF forms, but you need them transformed into fully functional online forms. Find the Scanned Form option in the 123FormBuilder dashboard, then import the PDF form. Associate each identified field with the specific type of field you need, then hit the Create Form button to take your newly born form through design and brushing-up.

  • Reduce overall costs
  • Streamline data capture and management processes
  • Forget about buying paper
