IRI NextForm Use Cases

Quick and Easy Data Migration

PHH Mortgage Logo

"NextForm simply and quickly customizes our outputs when converting LDIF files to CSV. A 165mb LDIF file converted in seconds, 1+GB in less than a minute. Excellent product!"

Multiple Files and Data Types

Servista Logo

"NextForm converts EBCDIC data files (including zoned and PD fields) to ASCII. As a beginner I was able to make new jobs quickly and determine the output was correct."

Simple Job Creation and Manipulation

"Performance was great, and the GUI was not necessary because the jobs self-document. Among all the conversion tools we found, NextForm was at once the easiest and most robust.
