KOFAX Capture Image Capture Software
Kofax Capture accelerates business processes by collecting documents and forms, transforming them into accurate, retrievable information, and delivering it all into your business applications and databases. Whether your information is on paper or in electronic files, whether it is parked at a central office or scattered on desktops and remote offices throughout the world, Kofax Capture can help you capture it all quickly and accurately.
Kofax Capture also offers unmatched compatibility with scanners and other capture devices, plus content and document management systems, workflow applications and databases. No matter what hardware or enterprise applications you choose now or in the future, you can count on Kofax Capture to ensure consistent capture, indexing and validation of your important information.
Kofax Capture delivers powerful, production-level document and data capture. For document capture, it boasts the fastest, most flexible scanning and indexing solution around. For data capture, Kofax Capture extracts important information such as machine-printed text, bar codes, hand-printed words and even checked boxes.
What’s more, Kofax Capture uses the same powerful indexing and validation process to capture information that doesn’t start on paper, such as electronic documents. That means your workflow or content management system receives consistently indexed content – no matter what the source – and your enterprise benefits from reliable, easy and fast retrieval of all your information.
Many organizations rely on document-driven processes that originate at a remote location but must be completed elsewhere. The Kofax Capture Network Server is a proven, reliable method for accelerating and reducing the cost of remote business processes. Included with Kofax Capture, the network server allows you to capture documents and data from your organization’s remote offices directly into your Kofax Capture system.
Scalable for Growth
Kofax Capture is a modular application that can be used right out of the box to meet the information capture needs of a specific department, and expanded to meet the complex requirements of a high-volume, mission-critical enterprise. From hundreds to millions of documents per day, Kofax Capture can capture it all.
Customizable to Meet Your Needs
You can tailor Kofax Capture to support your precise business processes with dozens of plug-and-play modules – from automated document separation, to postal mail scanning, to automatic classification of unstructured documents, to powerful forms-processing tools that extract information from even the most difficult documents. Or you can write your own. Kofax Capture’s flexible, open architecture makes it possible and comes with example module code to get you started.
Integrates with Workflow and Content Management Applications
Kofax Capture uses standard release scripts to connect seamlessly to business systems from IBM®, Oracle®, Microsoft®, Open Text®, Hyland®, Interwoven®, and many others. Kofax Capture can also export to any ODBC-compatible database or to a delimited ASCII file. This flexibility makes Kofax Capture the perfect front end for any system.
Kofax Capture Enterprise Edition
Kofax Capture is also available in an enterprise edition that offers high availability and disaster recovery for mission-critical implementations. Remote, real-time management of system performance enables you to handle exceptions quickly and meet throughput requirements. Kofax Capture easily extends information capture throughout your enterprise by taking advantage of Terminal Services and Citrix® server technology, providing remote, on-demand access to Kofax Capture modules, and enabling the processing of more documents in less time via multiple-instance support. Additionally, Kofax Capture Enterprise Edition offers options for enterprise-class database management systems such as IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL Server Enterprise, and Oracle Database.
Intuitive and User Friendly Interface
Kofax Express utilizes the same interface as Microsoft Office 2007 applications, with the most commonly used commands and features readily accessible from a ribbon bar atop the screen. Scanner operators can keep their eyes on their work and easily invoke numerous Kofax Express features with a single click of the mouse, resulting in quicker adoption and greater productivity gains.
Highest Image Quality
Innovative SmoothView™ technology enables you to manipulate multiple document images with ease. Find, replace, gather, zoom, divide, rotate, swap, order and place document images in ways you never could imagine with a stack of paper purchase xanax. Also, with the included Kofax VRS, your images will look better than their paper originals without any pre-scan document preparation or fiddling with scanner controls
Bar Code Capabilities
The enhanced bar code engine in Kofax Express can read most commonly used 1D and 2D bar codes, even those obscured with stamps, handwriting or coffee cup stains. Scanning in color improves accuracy further, allowing flawless decoding of bar codes at low resolutions (100 or 150 dpi). Kofax Express detects bar codes wherever they are placed on a page, even when they are skewed at angles.
Kofax Express automatically processes images (TIFF, BMP, JPEG and PDF) uploaded to a watched folder as if they were delivered from a scanner. This feature enables Kofax Express to process images from sources such as MFPs, faxes and saved images, giving you a single interface to your back end repository for all images from all sources.
The Searchable PDF feature includes live text with PDF images, enabling users to easily and accurately search for information in PDF documents.
Image compression captures crisp, clear color images while delivering the small file size of black and white images, allowing quicker downstream processing and improved process efficiency.
Background Export goes hand in hand with Searchable PDF and image compression. By processing these file types in the background, the scan operator can continue to scan productively in the foreground. Background export is also useful for large standard PDF or TIFF exports.
With the Database Lookup feature, the value entered in one index field triggers a database search to fill the other fields automatically, accelerating the indexing task while delivering greater accuracy.
When a page is scanned with a folded corner, or a forgotten sticky note still affixed, or a double-feed that escaped detection, there is no choice but to rescan. In these instances, the “Pointand- Click Rescan” option makes the process as painless as possible by inserting the rescanned document in the correct position in the batch without rescanning the entire batch.
Flexible Document Separation
Kofax Express can separate groups of documents automatically, eliminating the need to scan documents one at a time. Just fill your auto document feeder (ADF) to its capacity and Kofax Express will divide the batch into individual document groups automatically based on patch codes, bar codes or inserted blank pages. Kofax Express allows you to process documents faster than ever before by keeping your scanner in continuous operation while it handles the separation chores for you.
Post-Scan Processing with Kofax VRS Corrections
If Kofax Express encounters a poor quality document it can’t convert into a legible image, it doesn’t shut down the scanner and wait for a fix. Instead, its Kofax VRS Corrections feature reserves the image for later inspection and correction by the scanner operator without needing to rescan the document. Kofax Express retains enough information from the original that the operator can manually correct the image after scanning completion, allowing the scanner to run without pause.
Visual Undo History
Everyone relies on the Undo button. But undo enough steps and it’s easy to lose track of where you’ve come from, what was undone and what can be redone safely. That’s why Kofax Express includes a Visual Undo History feature that shows the sequence of processes that were done – or undone – on any document image.
Export to Other Systems
A captured document image isn’t much use unless it can be saved in an accessible format and retrieved easily. That’s why in addition to single page (JPEG, TIFF, PDF) and multi-page (TIFF, PDF) format options, Kofax Express can also smoothly export documents to Microsoft SharePoint or Kofax Capture. Advanced users can create other export options through a publicly available API.
Optimized for High Performance
Kofax Express was designed to take full advantage of the latest processing technologies in your computer. By enabling multiple scan and image processing functions to run simultaneously, Kofax Express drives your scanner at rated speed, resulting in the highest throughput possible.
