BayFMS is Unique

Baystream’s Form Management Solution is unique, combining a powerful Forms Design and Deployment technology with the ability to save all submissions and all field values in a database and furthermore, to have selected field values as well as all PDF forms available from within the M-Files Document Management System. BayFMS works in both online and offline modes.

The delivery and license model

The system uses a dedicated Management SQL database for each domain or customer, to contain:

  • Form Definitions
  • Form Submissions

The Management Database either on our Server or a Customer Server

The cost has a fixed component plus usage costs that depend on:

  • Number of Offline Accounts (with volume based discounts)
  • Number of Form Submissions (with volume based discounts)
  • Whether our Server or a Customer Server is used to house the DB
  • Whether Digital Signatures are needed
Expanding M-Files

M-Files is a perfect solution for:

  • Records Management
  • Workflows

We have expanded M-Files by deeply integrating it with:

  • Forms Management
  • SQL Transaction Management
