Why should I use eForms?
eForms offer many benefits for both end users and developers:
Benefits for Forms Users
eForms enable you to gather and transmit data faster and facilitate straight-through processing. eForms are programmed to extract data straight into your agency management system. You can also use eForms through an insurer website.
Using eForms, insurers can receive more accurate data, shorten update cycles, and eliminate the possibility of errors due to manual data re-entry.
It’s simple to use. You can train staff quickly and easily by using eForms.
Benefits for Forms Developers
eForms contain a consistent XML format and unique XML tags for each form field called eLabels.
eLabels are applied consistently across all ACORD eForms. We have done the mapping from the physical form fields to the eLabels. As a result, updates can easily be downloaded and plugged into your systems.
Incorporating ACORD eForms into your products will help you stay current, compliant and eliminate the time and expense of creating and maintaining proprietary forms.
