Magenta sample survey form

Magenta Suite includes the Magenta Forms Designer, the Data Merge feature for printing varaible data on forms, and Remark Classic OMR® for scanning, reporting and exporting.  These programs are integrated into the Magenta Suite  and provide a complete scanning software package for OMR scanners from companies such as Sekonic and Scantron like the one in the picture below.   OMRs have been used for decades as the fastest, cheapest, most accurate means for companies and institutions to input data into computer systems.   Scan form projects can be  implemented in hours rather than weeks and there will be no long turnaround waiting to get your forms printed - you can also print as many or as few forms as you need.  You can integrate your data  (preslugs, preprinting, serialization, barcodes) with your scantron form in one print pass.  To design, print and scan forms with page scanners, you can use our Concord Suite

The Magenta Forms Designer has the EZ Form Design Wizard that will generate a form for you in minutes rather than days. EZ Form is so easy to use, you will think Magenta 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 an OMR scannable form.
