Kofax Capture is a suite of multichannel document capture applications. Kofax software is now owned and supported by Lexmark since May 2015.The swiss army knife of data extractionKofax Capture provides a conduit where emails, paper documents, and files stored in folders to all be normalized and processed so that useful information can be extracted and used in business. For all the implementations I have done the information has been put into a format that back-end systems could easily process, along with the image in a TIFF or PDF format, to let a customer-initiated process be resolved and processed faster than previous manual entry operations.,The VRS application included with Kofax Capture is the best image pre-processing platform available on the market today. It can handle a wide array of common document problems such as skew, flipping, wrinkles, lines, and dots. The platform is incredibly scriptable and can be customized to handle all sorts of unusual document contents to allow information to be extracted that many other platforms just struggle on. Table extraction, line item matching, and smart extraction are all strong points with this platform. Through the use of SBL and .NET the platform can be expanded and scaled quite easily to allow for the software to be integrated into existing business processes and platforms with ease.,Kofax Capture's interface is antiquated and could use a refresh. An attempt was made two versions back to add ribbons and modernize the interface but anything below the first level looks and feels like a tired application. Bugs that have existed in the platform for years are still prevalent and there is no priority to fix them. Features and critical bugs are regularly fixed but simple nagging ones that can cause a development project to close and lose all work is commonplace. Licensing, while reasonable for lower volume solutions, becomes expensive once a project reaches a certain threshold. Ensure future planning capacity is done before purchasing to make sure it's a cost effective solution.,9,Kofax Capture is quick to install and running for small installations. When wanting to scale up, however, the product would benefit from SMEs to help implement the solution. Reduced keying and faster turnaround on customer inquiries has helped reduce headcount for handling previously manual processes and reduce the amount of keying error. Proper installation and maintenance of the platform is key to help prevent costly issues from cropping up in the future.

If there is a desire to extract text from emails, documents, spreadsheets, and faxes this is the perfect platform for that. The only thing it does, extracting information, it does well. External information in terms of flat files, databases, and web services can be tied into the platform as well to allow line item matching, address validation, and other features that make it just an overall great ingestion system.

Kofax Capture improved visibility within our organization by capturing paper and electronic documents.

  • Digitized the documents
  • Provides document indexing
  • Supports Cloud, SaaS, and Wed
  • 24x7 Prompt Support
  • Need basic training before start using Kofax Capture
  • GUI can be improved bit more
  • Does not support Version control
Kofax Capture is an appropriate application where a large number of documents need to be scanned and digitized for further use. Kofax Capture is suitable for large organizations like educational institutions, hospitals, and accounting departments.

We are in the healthcare industry and use Kofax to scan medical information into the our EHR.
  • Images are easy to manipulate prior to incorporating them into the electronic health record.
  • It is very easy to use and compatible with our current software.
  • Very useful for our batch scanning needs.
  • We have at least 10+ licenses so it can be somewhat pricey.
We use it specifically for data capture of printed medical text. It scans bar codes on recognizing labs, encounter notes, prescriptions, and outside medical records. The business office uses the program for billing and scanning purposes.

Kofax Capture Review: "Kofax Document Capture with EMC Application Xtender - past customer"

It was used to import paper Adoption records into the EMC Application Extender ECM system.
  • Processed batches.
  • OCR - Optical Character Recognition processing.
  • User workflow.
  • Error handling.
  • GUI updated.
It is well suited as a document capture in front of an ECM system where indexes are well defined for each type of page. It is less appropriate where it needs to automatically find indexes on the pages.

User Review: "Kofax Capture- Digitizing Gov Docs"

Score 7 out of 10

Kofax capture was used across the whole organization. We used to use it to digitize documents to be stored in an electronic records management system (Oracle Universal Content Management System/Filenet before that).

Some of the ways we used to use it is to capture:
  • Construction plans and blueprints.
  • Construction contracts
  • Audit Review Files
Our users tried to make efforts to make themselves less reliant on paper by digitizing all their documents that were held up in file cabinets.It was easier to distribute digitized documents throughout the organization as and when needed.
  • One of the things we relied on Kofax was its connector with Oracle UCM and Filenet. It was easy to configure batch classes and set up release scripts to UCM or Filent
  • One other aspect of it was validation scripts based on external Oracle databases. It was very helpful.
  • After removal of dongle, it became easier to maintain the software.

  • Having a connectors with a workflow tool would be helpful where people can validate and approve the output.
  • More samples and documentation related to use of API in .NET applications would be a good improvement, that would help users to adapt the product easily into their organization.
Some of the best uses of:
Kofax Capture is making the organization paperless.
Redaction of organization's document if being distributed to the general public.
It is not suited for applications where the documents being captured are of various formats and layouts and they need to be relied upon for the use of coversheets in order to be digitized.

Kofax is used by all departments of the company. Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, and Contract Administration. By using Kofax, Accounts Payable is able to catalogue and sort all of checks and wire confirmations through different criteria and parameters. It can sort by vendor, by date, by type of document, and by source. At Accounts Receivable, it allows for quick and simple reconciliation of all bank deposits and it also recognizes payments by checks or wires from different clients and vendors. At contract administration, it is able to recognize through barcodes and through different algorithms where the documents belong depending on the type of document it has scanned.
  • Recognition of checks and it's backup
  • Recognition of bank deposit slip and checks that belong to that slip
  • Recognition of where a contract begins and where it ends
  • Improvement of number and date recognition in check stubs
Kofax is well suited for cataloguing massive amounts of paperwork from accounting and being able to filter it and place it in databases.
