Input manipulation

In many cases, your data may not be in the preferred form. It may be you have a batch job but needs to burst it into small single jobs or you want to sort your output according to zip code. Your options are endless with InterForm.

In a no-programming way you set up our workflow to split, sort, group, merge, copy, enrich your data to give you the final output you want.

Scripting

In many cases, your data may not be complete and you may need to enrich it with additional data e.g. email address, image from a website, data from an external service, or just some data from a DB table. With InterForm, you have a wide selection of options for enriching or reformatting your data without creating any custom coding, programs, or modifications to your ERP or other applications.
