Waltham, MA, March 24, 2003 - Create!form International, Inc., a leading global provider of software products that streamline and e-enable output formatting and delivery of business documents, today announced the release of Create!form(r) v2.5 for UNIX(r), a completely redesigned e-forms and output management product for the UNIX platform.

Australia's Tatura Milk Industries Limited (, a Create!form customer for ten years, produces and markets a wide range of dairy products and specialist ingredients locally and around the world. Steven Baker, information services manager for Tatura Milk, said, "We recently completed a seamless upgrade to Create!form v2.5 for UNIX, which we run with Baan on our IBM AIX 4.2 system. The new version utilizes a split-screen that simplifies the form design and editing process, enabling us to build forms and DataMap in a single step. I can simply click and drag the data field from the sample spool file to the location I want it to appear on the form. It's that easy."
