In a recent conversation, Andre Dolder, IT relationship manager at SUVA, told us that he implemented Adobe LiveCycle solutions to automate several key data collection and entry activities. The solution equips employees with electronic forms that are automatically updated, lowering the amount of manual entry and data collection required.
Along with a rich Internet application (RIA), which uses Adobe AIR to create a persistent presence on desktops and mobile devices—the solution enables SUVA field staff to instantly recall existing customer information, make any updates or changes necessary, and have customers sign the documents electronically to complete the application process. Now, instead of processing applications in batches once per week, applications can be processed on a daily basis, helping SUVA deliver services more rapidly and be more responsive to customer needs.
Dolder says that because of the improvements with the Adobe software the company has saved around 800,000 francs annually by reducing the amount of time and resources spent planning for customer visits. Click here to learn more.

With the Adobe Flash Platform, optionsXpress created Xtend, an all-inclusive trading console that employs the same award-winning, back-end technology as the optionsXpress web-based platform. Xtend—which investors can access easily from virtually any computer operating system and digital device—offers traders convenient access to active stock, options, and futures information for improved decision making and trading outcomes. Xtend is a dynamic, downloadable desktop app widget that offers a wide range of unique features and expert-quality research tools. Learn more here.
In a recent conversation, Carl Houghton, the vice president of strategic initiatives at ISS told us that the Adobe Flash Platform is an essential component of his company’s ability to quickly develop powerful applications that help the U.S. military coordinate critical information on the battlefield, in war rooms, and in Congress.
Houghton says that the advanced development tools in the Adobe software helped cut RIA development time by six months. The RIAs help military leaders securely share information across a variety of platforms and devices, and the reliable online and offline access to information enhances agencies’ ability to collaborate efficiently and effectively. Most importantly, the applications bring a new level of engagement with information with advanced data visualization, which helps users better understand the information they’re viewing and make better, more strategic decisions.
