Concord Suite is a complete software scanning package for use with page scanners like the one in the picture to the right.  With the Concord Suite  and a page scanner, you have a complete scanning system - you don't need any other software or hardware. 

The Concord Suite includes the  Concord Forms Designer for the design of plain paper bubble scantron forms that are scannable on any page scanner or multi-function device (MFP), Data Merge for adding variable data to forms and the Remark Office OMR® for scanning, reporting and exporting data. Page scanners are also known as page, document and desktop scanners.

The Concord Forms Designer software has the EZ Form Design Wizard that will generate a form for you in minutes rather than hours. EZ Form is so easy to use, you will think Concord is doing the work for you because it is. You have never used a forms design tool as easy to use as this one. With a few clicks and some cutting and pasting from a word processor, you have a survey or test data collection form. You can also modify your forms easily and as often as needed.

In education, Concord helps districts to develop new survey forms, course requests, course evaluations, grade sheets, attendance sheets and testing or assessment forms. In other industries,  Concord makes it possible to create bubble forms for evaluations, surveys, questionnaires, employee training tests,  time and attendance, customer polls, inventory and sales tracking, customer/employee satisfaction, medical patient encounter forms, manufacturing plant safety cards or any other type of data collection.
