Browser-based forms with InfoPath forms services
InfoPath Forms Services, which is part of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, extends your reach to organizations that do not use Microsoft® Office InfoPath 2007 by allowing you to fill out forms in a common browser or even a SmartPhone mobile device.
- Deliver your forms with a consistent user experience regardless of where they are used. Office InfoPath 2007 uses built-in controls to deliver easy-to-use forms with predictable behavior, mouse-over tips, and built-in data validation.
- Streamline your business process applications through InfoPath forms, which collect and validate the data driving your workflows.
- Collaborate using built-in workflow templates to streamline approval, review, and archiving processes.

With Office SharePoint Server 2007, you can initiate and interact with workflows right from within your Microsoft® Office application. You can also collect and validate important document metadata via the document information panel.

You can then specify the actions and responses that follow and even identify the conditions under which other workflow events will occur.
