Kofax Express Software
Kofax Express™ is a powerful, all-in-one, easy-to-use, batch-oriented document scan application capable of high-speed scanning with real-time image display, indexing, and bar code detection. It is designed for less complex applications and makes it easy for anyone to quickly scan, index and export documents for fast and easy retrieval. Kofax patented VirtualReScan® (VRS) technology is built into the application to ensure optimal image quality, reduce errors and exceptions, and improve system effectiveness. Kofax Express can export captured images and data to a wide variety of backend systems including Microsoft SharePoint and Kofax Capture.
Kofax Express enables companies to control the flow of information entering their enterprise by converting stacks of paper into electronic actionable and managed business content.
Kofax Express features the same familiar interface as Microsoft® Office applications. Operators can execute commands with a single click for faster adoption and greater productivity.
Kofax Express takes full advantage of the latest processing technologies by enabling multiple scan and image processing functions to run simultaneously to provide the highest throughput possible.
Kofax Express is a dedicated, single scan-to-archive station that supports the ability to add additional workstations for indexing, recognition, and export to improve throughput.
Tight integration with Microsoft SharePoint enables Kofax Express to index, classify and deliver highly organized documents and data into SharePoint and other systems for easy and fast retrieval.
Kofax Express automatically enhances any document irrespective of color, size, contrast, condition or content to increase operational efficiency while producing consistent, high quality images.
Kofax Express Software
Kofax Express utilizes the same interface as Microsoft Office 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.
When a page is scanned with a folded corner, a forgotten sticky note is still affixed, or a double-feed escapes detection, there is no choice but to rescan. In these instances, the "Point-and-Click Rescan" feature simplifies this process by inserting the rescanned document in the correct position in the batch without rescanning the entire batch.
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. Also, with integrated Kofax VRS, your images will look better than their paper originals without any pre-scan document preparation or fiddling with scanner controls.
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.
Kofax Express automatically extracts index field data from documents. Users can train Kofax Express to locate the key index information in a document and will automatically remember that location and extract the data from future documents. This feature reduces the time it takes to process documents and makes indexing much easier for users.
Tight integration with Microsoft SharePoint enables Kofax Express to index, classify and deliver documents and data into SharePoint for easy and fast retrieval. Kofax Express also supports direct integration with Kofax Capture and provides an export API for custom or advanced export use cases.
Kofax Express users can now easily index documents by selecting the text in the document with their mouse. Kofax Express automatically populates the index field with the information highlighted by the user, saving keystrokes and making the indexing of documents faster and easier.
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, the 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 image that the operator can manually correct the image after scanning completion, allowing the scanner to run without pause.
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.
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. Kofax Express includes a Visual Undo History feature that shows the sequence of processes that were done – or undone – on any document image.
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 distributed sources such as MFPs, faxes and saved images, giving you a single interface to your back end repository for all images from all sources.
Background Export enables application users to maximize the productivity of the scanner to capture documents while the export process for already processed images and index data are managed in the background. Background export is also useful for large standard PDF or TIFF exports.
The Searchable PDF feature produces full text with PDF images, enabling users to easily and accurately search for information in PDF documents.
With the Database Lookup feature, the value entered in one index field triggers an automatic database search to retrieve known related index values which fill the other fields automatically. This capability accelerates the indexing task while delivering greater accuracy.
