Overall Satisfaction with Kofax Capture

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.
  • We struggled with configuring Kofax with AP Automation. We used to receive vouchers in different formats by different companies, by different departments. The people from different departments used to scan those vouchers through regular scanners to a central location, which ended up as image pdfs. We fed these image pdfs through Kofax Capture for character recognition, which was painful as the accuracy of recognition was 50 to 60%.
  • 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.
  • It helped our organization to become reliant on digital documents as opposed to physical ones.
  • We were able version those digital documents using the UCM connector.
  • It helped us easily distribute our agency's documents across the agency and also helped us set up retention schedules on them.
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.
