Mobile capture was top of mind for the duration of Transform 2012 (#Transform2012), especially in the wake of Tuesday’s General Session, where CTO Anthony Macciola and CMO Martyn Christian described Kofax Mobile Capture and how it will extend Capture Enabled BPM to smartphones, tablet PCs and other mobile devices. As Macciola and Christian described onstage, the solution will enable a user to intiate business processes at the point of origination by using the camera on the device to capture information from documents and subsequently use a mobile app to route the resulting digital information to a variety of applications, workflows or content repositories.
Macciola covered a few examples of those applications especially suited for mobile capture, including transportation and logistics, and insurance claims processing. He also walked the audience through the mobile app for capture which will use Kofax VRS to image-perfect a document just as it would from a desktop application. The app will be available for both iOS and Android devices.
An interactive customer and industry expert panel immediately followed with representatives from UK based Ecclesiastical Insurance Group, the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration and Forrester Research. NARA’s Kofax solution was a particularly noteworthy example of the software in-action; Marcus Most, Director of Business Development at NARA, said his organization currently captures and processes approximately 1 billion pages annually consisting of nearly 750 different document types.
All in all, a great event. A special thanks goes out to all of the Kofax customers and partners for their participation at Transform 2012 and for making it a huge success year after year.
