Kofax releases Express 2.0

The company reports V. 2.0 offers new features that enhance the application’s ease of use and expand its functionality, thereby increasing productivity and significantly reducing operating costs.
Kofax highlights the following new features and capabilities:
Automatic image file importing. The new version optimizes the FolderScan function, which allows the automatic import of image files (TIFF, PDF, JPG and BMP) from a folder directly into Kofax Express, better enabling capture from sources such as MFPs, fax servers and saved images.
Improved PDF support. Now supporting both PDF and PDF/A formats, Kofax Express 2.0’s compression is said to maintain crisp, clear color images delivered in file sizes associated with black-and-white images, leading to quicker downstream processing and improved efficiencies. The software also extends its OCR technology to expand its searchable PDF capabilities, allowing users to more easily and accurately search for data within PDF documents.
Advanced database support. Kofax Express 2.0 offers advanced database support capabilities. This includes the ability to connect to any ODBC-compliant repositories such as Microsoft Access, SQL Server or Oracle to instantly look up and then populate an index field value, thereby accelerating indexing tasks and improving accuracy. Also the software now features an export API that enables the creation of customized export connectors to virtually any repository, allowing users to increase efficiency while cost effectively leveraging existing infrastructure.
