Convert any PDF into mobile friendly forms with Emondo

(TECHNOLOGY) Use Emondo to convert PDFs for anything from industry agnostic customer on-boarding to fun, playful surveys.


Digital form pros

Australia-based PDF wizard Emondo has a new way of dealing with digital forms.

Currently in beta, the web based app uses blockchain technology to “convert documents into online forms, automate workflows & auto-fill existing PDFs,” and if it’s not careful, it might make electronic signatures fun.

Any kind, any way

According to Emondo, their app can convert “any PDF (code free) into mobile friendly conversational forms that auto-fill your original PDF.” A cheeky pair of images on the Emondo website break it down into a simple graphical analysis: The Old Way vs. The New Way.

Who can argue with that?

Their online forms use an enterprise version of Typeform, and the electronic signatures are legally binding and witnessed. All submitted forms are also timestamped on the blockchain, for maximum security and “tamper proof” documents.

With Emondo, companies also can capture leads from incomplete forms.

According to the website, signing with Emondo is up to seven times more cost effective than with paper based applications, and up to fifty times faster. Whether or not those numbers are inflated, there’s no denying the practicality of online forms and electronic signatures.

A brief history

On the Emondo website, a handy history of the electronic signature features prominently, in timeline form, beginning with 1954: “A rubber stamp was recognised as legally binding signature.” 1981 marks the (probable) first legal usage of the term “electronic signature,” and in 1995, the state of Utah introduced “the world’s first electronic signature legislation.” In 2000 the U.S. began regulating e-signatures on a federal level.

The website and soon-to-come app even offer a “Sign like a star” tool.

That tool can be used to transform your signature into a glamorous Taylor Swift scrawl, a sober Abraham Lincoln script, or a looping Steve Jobs autograph. Imagine a world where you can sign your name like Mel Gibson when you’re feeling belligerent, or channel Beyonce when you want to feel empowered and fabulous. With Emondo, you could hide your own bland or illegible signature behind a screen of celebrity.

Sign up

Right now, you can sign up for free with just an email address, and don’t worry – as far as Emondo is concerned, “Spam is for cans not emails.”
