-inFORM Announces Gift of Trees Program

inFORM Decisions Announces Gift of Trees Program with The Arbor Day Foundation to Support Reforestation

The Arbor Day Foundation will plant 10 trees in the name of each customer that orders inFORM's document or banking automation software.


  • inFORM Gift of Trees program is offered to all new inFORM customers
  • Sourced from The Arbor Day Foundation's Gift of Trees Program
  • Supports inFORM's commitment to restore damaged forests
  • inFORM produces software to eliminate paper in the office
  • inFORM is an IBM Business Partner and ISP for over 13 years.

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, December 22, 2008 -- inFORM Decisions, leading provider of document automation and electronic banking solutions, announced it has joined the Arbor Day Foundation's Gift of Trees Program to provide for the planting of ten new trees each time inFORM concludes the sale of its Document Automation or Banking Automation software throughout the remainder of 2008 and 2009. This program supports inFORM's larger effort to recognize their customers by making a contribution to the restoration of scarce forest resources in the United States.

inFORM's commitment to The Arbor Day Foundation expands on their effort to take concrete actions to protect our nation's forests. For the past year, inFORM has included the message of going green in their articles, white papers and advertising. With this new Gift of Trees Program, inFORM is moving to a deeper level of commitment to help restore scarce forest resources and recognize organizations that are taking the step to go paperless.

inFORM Decisions was founded in 1994 to provide powerful utility solutions to address the growing need to efficiently manage paper workloads in all aspects of the enterprise. Benefits of saving time, money and trees have been realized by inFORM and its hundreds of customers around the world. Managing custom electronic forms and reports, imaging documents, and MICR check-printing have all generated strong consumer interest on the IT landscape, particularly during the current economic downturn.

inFORM provides this donation as an active member of the  Gift of Trees Program, run by the  The Arbor Day Foundation.

Dan Forster, President of inFORM Decisions, announced, "Our Green Policy includes a statement on: Support Leading Tree-Conservation Organizations. For any sale of our IFD paperless solutions, we are now meeting that commitment through our donations to The Arbor Day Foundation to pay for the planting of the trees in burned over forests."

Forster reported, "Our solutions for eliminating office paperwork result in significant savings for the enterprise and relieve pressure on old growth forests that have been called the lungs of our planet because they convert carbon dioxide back into oxygen. Total global forests are estimated to have originally covered 15 billion acres and that has shrunk to 9 billion acres today. We all need to do whatever is possible to reverse that trend. And going paperless saves a lot of money rapidly."

inFORM's IFD Green Page provides many links to information to help organizations cut the use of paper and power to educe operating costs and protect the environment.
