ReadSoft, a leading provider of document process automation solutions, announced today that its market-leading FORMS solution is being jointly marketed and delivered to IBM SPSS customers in conjunction with PreferredPartner, an IBM Premier Business Partner specializing in IBM software solutions and IT services.
ReadSoft and PreferredPartner are leveraging their partnership to offer advanced document capture integration with predictive analysis software, through the bundled offering of FORMS by ReadSoft and IBM's SPSS Data Collection. FORMS by ReadSoft allows users to automatically extract information from paper-based and electronic forms, and transfer the information to any system.

With the ReadSoft-IBM combined solution, SPSS users can remove manual data entry and transference from the survey process, resulting in more efficient, streamlined operations.
