Government loves numbers! Many government workflows contain calculations, such as building permit fees based on square footage. If you use a PDF form to gather this data, those calculations have to happen somewhere - often manually or on a spreadsheet, where there's lots of room for errors. With ClearForms, the information that's entered into a form can automatically be used in a calculation that you build. Behind the scenes, you can assign numeric values to text-based multiple choice answers (so if someone picks "electrical" for permit type, they'll get a different fee than if they pick "plumbing.") ClearForms supports complex, multi-term calculations for scores for things like employee evaluations, and even nested and logic-driven formulas.
