Mansfield, MA – May 5, 2014 – Quadrant Software LLC., a leading provider of document output management (cloud, FoIP) and spool file beautification tools, has announced the latest version of Formtastic, their automatic IBM i spool file beautification and distribution solution. Highlights of this release, which is slated for the end of August, include QR barcodes, 2D DataMatrix barcodes, and ACH CCD+.

“We are constantly working to make it easier for our customers to distribute professional looking IBM i spool files,” says Steve Woodard, Quadrant Software’s CEO. “This release will enable our customers to add modern new elements to their forms. It will also simplify compliance for customers who need to attach addenda records to their ACH layout.”


Quick Response (QR) Barcodes
Formtastic customers will be able to add QR barcodes to their shipping documents, shipping labels and invoices. QR barcodes are two-dimensional barcodes that can be read with smartphones and dedicated QR reading devices. The barcode links directly to text, emails, websites, phone numbers and more.


2D Data Matrix Barcodes
A Data Matrix barcode is a two-dimensional matrix barcode, that consists of black and white square modules arranged in either a square or rectangular pattern. The encoded information can be text or raw data.


Under the Affordable Care Act of 2010, as of January 1st 2014, all health plans are required to comply with a new Heathcare EFT Standard. The new regulation requires health plans to offer Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) reimbursement payments to healthcare providers in a standardized format which includes an ACH CCD+ addenda record. The addenda record provides the payment receiver with remittance data associated with the payment.
