DATA BLOCKS was established in 1981. We have worked with education, government and business clients since that time to improve data capture, data control and reporting methods.   DATA BLOCKS is focused on improving and creating new and innovative software tools for data capture, scanning, reporting and analysis.

The first version of our Magenta Forms Designer software was created in 1989 as the product DB*Formaker.  We partnered with Gravic, Inc. in 1999 to create the complete scanning software package Magenta Suite. 

The first version of our Concord Forms Designer software was developed in 2002 to provide a dedicated forms designer for Gravic's Remark Office OMR software and was originally named Magenta for Office.  We put the 2 software programs together to create the Magenta for Office Suite which has since been renamed the Concord Suite.

We are committed to offering products, services and  excellent customer service  to our customers helping them to accomplish their goals.
