BENLOCH, Victoria Australia, September 15, 2021 – DocBlaster today announced bridging of web apps created by natural language with third party services DropBox and Trello*, plus large file uploads. This means data submitted by Web-users can be automatically transferred to business workflows, without resort to traditional computer programming in any stage of Web-app creation for data capture.
“The bridge between public-facing and in-house systems has never been easier than today with DocBlaster”, says DocBlaster Pty Ltd founder Eric Wilson. “By using natural business language to create data-capturing Web apps, then automatically making captured information accessible in a card wall or storage service, inexpensively bridges gaps between an organisation’s public and internal IT.”
The new service automatically creates custom fields in Trello job cards, populating them with information provided by end users over the Web. This allows tasks to be visually monitored through an internal business workflow starting with client on-ramping in DocBlaster right through to job completion. Large file uploads allow any supporting information to be linked in Trello or automatically replicated to recipient desktops via DropBox. DocBlaster’s file uploader has achieved a speed of 1.4 megabytes per second over an ordinary NBN copper connection.
To help avoid disputes, customers can still access copies of screens end-users filled in, including of calculated prices based on answers to questionnaires, their signatures obtained from mobile device Web apps, with hyperlinks kept in tact.
“It’s an affordability and productivity breakthrough in IT” says DocBlaster project leader Daniel Wilson. “DocBlaster sets data free for reuse by in-house systems using WebHooks with JSON, or as emails, or links to downloads. This means almost any decent third-party service should be interoperable, also useful for resilience if a primary system goes offline.”
To better support smoother end-user data capture, DocBlaster has also introduced a new ‘GOTO’ direction responsive to end-user choices. This allows Web apps quickly created by natural business language, to branch user input to relevant screens, skipping end-users over irrelevant screens, depending on their choices. Titles can now also be tagged to end-user choices and input, and sent to Trello as the name of a custom field into which the user’s information is put. This is in addition to all of DocBlaster’s other ground-breaking features.
“DocBlaster services provide unprecedented mix-and-match flexibility without traditional computer programming or IT management” Eric Wilson says. “This allows business systems development at a fraction of the cost of even the cheapest out-sorcery, making productivity gains, and new business on-ramping, far more affordable than ever before”.
