Kofax Capture is a software suite of tools, solutions, and utilities that allow information to go from useless to powerful in a few short clicks. Kofax has the ability to ingest information from many different sources such as email, directories, web services and scanners and intelligently categorize and scrape information from these sources. From there, information can easily be massaged and put into practically any format for inclusion into major document management systems such as FileNet, Onbase, and Sharepoint while also supporting multiple text and database formats such as XML, HTML, and CSV. The addition of Kofax VRS on top of the Capture suite to clean up images coming in to Kofax is yet another benefit that makes this one of the best capture tools out there.
Kofax Capture can get expensive very quickly. Licensing is charged per concurrent workstation and per image, which is further multiplied if you take advantage of the Capture Transformation Modules which greatly increases the abilities of Kofax but at an additional tax.
The biggest business use for Kofax Capture is handling Accounts Payable scenarios. In many business cases, 85-90% of invoices can be automatically identified, filed, and placed in the hands of proper business decision makers all within a few minutes of the document becoming available to Kofax. Any structured document in a standardized form can benefit almost immediately utilizing Kofax Capture and even unstructured documents with a bit of training can benefit from this software.
