Kofax Automates Accounts Payable Processes for Major Global Agricultural Products Manufacturer

Kofax® plc (LSE: KFX), a leading provider of smart process applications for the business critical First Mile™ of customer interactions, announced that a major global agricultural products manufacturer invested approximately $1 million in Kofax software and services to automate its accounts payable processes.

The customer will use Kofax software to automate the processing of more than 300,000 invoices annually. A key requirement for the customer was the ability to integrate with both SAP and IBM Maximo ERP systems. Kofax was selected for a host of stand-out capabilities including: pre-built, real-time integration with SAP; out-of-the-box best practice workflows; industry leading document and data capture; advanced cash management analytics; and flexibility to accommodate multiple ERP integrations.

The Hackett Group, a global strategic business advisory and operations improvement consulting firm, stated in its white paper, The Case for Invoice Capture: Transform Accounts Payable with These 5 Simple Truths, “The recent development of enhanced invoice recognition and data capture solutions, such as invoice capture, is a breakthrough in purchase to pay automation. Supplying a 56 percent cost advantage over paper-based invoice processing, invoice capture enables organizations to raise productivity, improve invoice match rates, take more early-pay discounts and achieve greater spend visibility.”

“Hundreds of global companies have entrusted their invoice and AP automation needs to Kofax,” said Howard Dratler, executive vice president of Field Operations at Kofax. “Our solutions help customers streamline operations, increase productivity, and achieve best-in-class AP performance.”

Kofax MarkView for AP provides industry-leading information capture and automates invoice processing and data entry. It includes best practice workflows for discrepancy processing, resolution and accounting details as well as real-time ERP integration, a self-service supplier portal and an AP process optimization dashboard. The first and only application of its kind, MarkView 8.0 now extends the solution with mobile capabilities for iPhone and Android devices. Integration with Kofax Mobile Capture™ (KMC) enables users inside and outside the enterprise gain secure access to information and capabilities required for processing invoices with full AP process security standards and speeds processing of invoices and receipts.

Kofax MarkView Advisor is the industry's first real time financial process performance application that enables organizations to achieve world class efficiency and effectiveness in their AP processing activity. Designed specifically for finance executives, Kofax MarkView Advisor enables finance managers to strategically manage and optimize finance processes by providing an integrated perspective on AP operations — from comprehensive overviews to detailed activities summaries — that synthesize both process and transactional data. And, it combines real time process performance intelligence with the ability to immediately intervene, when necessary, to resolve process issues impacting departmental performance.

Kofax Capture™ (KC) provides industry leading scan-to-archive capabilities by scanning documents and forms to create digital images, extracting index data for retrieval purposes and delivering the images and associated data to a variety of repositories and applications. This can significantly reduce retrieval costs while improving regulatory and compliance efforts. Kofax Capture is flexible and scalable, enabling customers to define where and how images are captured and indexed, whether in a home office, remote branch or back office data center.

Kofax Transformation Modules™ (KTM) adds document classification, page separation, and data extraction and validation capabilities to Kofax Capture to drive robust capture-to-process applications. By automating what were previously labor intensive, error prone and time consuming tasks, Kofax Transformation Modules can significantly reduce labor costs, improve information quality and accelerate business processes.

Kofax e-Transactions is an add-on application for Kofax Transformation Modules that automates the electronic delivery of documents to a business process via secure email, removing the need for printing, mailing, scanning and data entry. Kofax e-Transactions allows enterprises to eliminate paper as quickly as possible, potentially at its source, and provides the most cost effective and easy-to-manage mechanism for on-ramping business-related content into a business process as it is generated.

Business operations become the key driver of IoT applications and projects. Business operations, IT, and data scientists need advanced analytics t...
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...
