ESB Online Forms

Product Description

Pentagull’s ESB Online forms solution is a cloud software service for the delivery of online digital transactions through the use of modern, responsive and highly configurable online forms.  It is based on our ESB platform, which has been designed uniquely for automating services in local government to reduce costs and facilitate better service fulfilment.

Utilising the latest in cloud computing technology, this agile application service is robust and flexible and hosted across multiple secure UK data centres for maximum resilience. The ESB Self-Service Portal solution facilitates the rapid deployment of online forms either from scratch or based on our growing library of templates.

By default, all submitted forms will be sent to a designated e-mail address for processing.  However, if you require a deeper integration with your existing systems or you wish to use the ESB platform to manage your processes end-to-end, this can easily be achieved by purchasing additional modules.

The ESB Self-Service Portal uses the latest web standards such as HTML 5 and CSS, along with industry-leading toolkits such as Bootstrap and JQuery.  All generated forms conform to WCAG level AA or above, ensuring they are accessible to the widest audience.  We regularly perform testing of our products using a variety of assistive technologies such as screen readers, and we are proud of our pro-active and “real-world” approach to accessibility.
