Natural Language Platform Information Site

DocBlaster platform advantages…

AUTOMATIC

DocBlaster works with natural language text to greatly reduce operator training, automatically transforming it to Web apps or forms for filling and signing online, then calculates /converts the display to keep forever as PDF documents….

How does it work? Underscores “____________” in your communication are converted by DocBlaster into a text field in a web page. Square brackets “[ ]”convert to check boxes, a series of brackets “( ) Choice 1 ( ) Choice 2…” convert to radio buttons, etc. Simple!

Self-hosting, with no apps or plug-ins to install and learn for senders, receivers or publishers.

 

SMS & SOCIAL MEDIA

Use DocBlaster to push links to forms for filling or signing via SMS – where the onus of legibility on people’s smart-phones could be on you.

Link long documents to SMS or social media without forcing people to download the lot – speed access with only what interests them.

QUICKER & EASIER

DocBlaster can utilise your existing email so there’s no extra usernames required to set up or additional passwords to remember.

And other people don’t have to create yet another username and remember an extra password to simply read, fill or sign your communications.

Designed for friction-free on-ramping of people into your organisation, plus internal and external communications – DocBlaster will do it all or just fill in the gaps.

DEVICE READABILITY

DocBlaster can reformat information including form elements to make it more readable on people’s devices – even small smart-phones.

No fine print greatly reduces zooming and panning, which may reduce confusion and increase understanding.

Where space is very limited, entering information can be easier and better with DocBlaster than ordinary Web pages.

E-PERSONAL

Ensure the right people get their information quickly – copies of completed forms may be sent to multiple recipients*

Quickly customise standard communications to remote users

*while raw data (JSON, CSV) is available for other business systems to use.

IN-CONTEXT APPROVALS

Let people check their answers or sign/check things off as they go, for clearer understandings.

DocBlaster doesn’t bore people by repeating everything entered at the end, or just attaching it to the end.

CUSTOM CLICK-WRAP

Obtain people’s consent to non-standard or customised agreements easily – while DocBlaster keeps everyone on the same page with easily accessible exact copies.

Automatically record people’s choices and future changes in human-readable PDFs synchronised with IT data feeds, yet still independently retrievable.

Simply place check boxes or radio buttons (options) anywhere in your communication (in beta) using natural language: Such as including braces [ ] for check boxes or brackets ( ) next to each option.

REAL SIGNATURES

Increase affinity with people by acquiring real signatures not fake facsimiles.

Capture people’s long signatures to short initials – DocBlaster understands one size doesn’t fit all.

Have people sign anywhere in your communication or multiple times as you see fit.Simply place signature or initial placeholders anywhere in your communication using natural language: Such as including Signed:____________ or just /__________/ to trigger a special (JavaScript) signature panel made to suit.

PRINT OPTIONS

DocBlaster doesn’t lock people into proprietary form-builders or printer-unfriendly outputs – so blank or completed communications can be always be printed out where IT is unavailable or inappropriate.

Please consider the environment when printing. With DocBlaster, printing should be a last resort.

NATURAL WORKFLOW

Create interactive correspondence for different people’s devices using natural language in ordinary text (in beta).

DocBlaster will allow people to sign or draw in-browser with whatever they’re using – especially mobile devices.

Keep copies of browser display forever – browser display is permanently saved in PDF documents.

Access and re-use information using standard interchange protocols & formats – JSON, CSV, etc.

CERTAINTY FOR EVERYONE

People get exact copies of what was in the recipient’s Web browser, not an IT reconstruction of what people were supposed to see.

The exact copies are bound by DocBlaster into the final PDF and a digital fingerprint could be block-chain recorded too.

Store documentation for easy retrieval independent of legacy IT systems.

DEVICE PRIVACY

No code runs directly on people’s devices for better security – it’s all on DocBlaster servers or in-browser.

DocBlaster records exact copies without spyware. Information that people fill in is sent to DocBlaster servers for placement. People then approve an exact copy of the finished composition sent to them from the DocBlaster server.

Senders’ and receivers’ address books are safer!

CONSISTENT DISPLAY

DocBlaster’s server-side rendering means no device font problems and consistent layout for people.

Hyperlink functionality is maintained from authors’ documents to Web recipients to PDF records.

PLAYS NICELY

Being email / web based ensures high compatibility Between DocBlaster and people’s existing tools & services.

Enhances normal business processes while providing JSON or CSV information corresponding to people’s independently-recorded user selections.

Because your data is your data – will do PDF, JSON, CSV, Web Hooks.

INSTALLATION-FREE

The flow of natural language input using ordinary text editors, interactive Web apps for recipients, plus recording interactions to PDF, avoids reinventing the IT wheel.

So people don’t have to install anything, and thanks to DocBlaster, will continue using the programs they already know.

 

FLEXIBLE DEPLOYMENT

DocBlaster is deployed as a low-cost self-hosting public service for community and business people.

It’s also deployable in the private cloud (your own AWS account) or on -premises for enhanced protection.

DocBlaster services can be suitably located in any part of the network, from the centre to the edge and can run on Linux (including IoT), Windows or Mac.

 

SECURITY

People deserve privacy, documents are stored and transmitted in encrypted form.

If there is customer demand. we can make it so that every document submitted that DocBlaster prepares or adds information to will be processed in its own container that is destroyed when the work is done.

DocBlaster leverages many of Amazon Web Services’ security features plus adds our own.

ROBUSTNESS

People depend on their documents so we leverage Amazon Web Services across multiple availability zones.

DocBlaster services many of people’s requests with micro-services, and will scale up automatically for maximum reliability.

The system is also designed to be distributed across IoT devices for maximum dispersal if necessary.

 

SATELLITE FRIENDLY

Reach users anywhere on the globe. DocBlaster has been developed and tested with higher-latency networks in mind.

Users with connectivity issues are given the option to persevere if they wish.

In-house deployments don’t require servers to be located around the world.

 

 

PAY-AS-YOU-GO

Non-subscription based services save money with rates based on usage not merely the passage of time.

DocBlaster’s self-hosted document services require no business investment in online infrastructures.

Depending on location, natural language apps might be fairly expensed like paper forms not capitalised as software development projects.
