Kofax to integrate Adobe LiveCycle Barcoded Forms

January 12, 2005


Kofax, the world's largest information capture vendor, has announced an agreement to integrate Adobe Systems' LiveCycle Barcoded Forms into its Ascent Capture platform. The combined solution will enable companies, government agencies, and large organizations which process large volumes of paper forms to automate the collection of form data for use in business applications and databases.

LiveCycle barcoded forms automate the capture of user-supplied data from interactive Adobe PDF forms using proven 2D (two-dimensional) barcode technology. In conjunction with Kofax's Ascent platform, when the barcode is successfully scanned, data is extracted with 100 percent accuracy and routed to back-end enterprise applications. As a result, organizations can dramatically reduce errors, time and overall costs associated with manually re-keying data from paper forms.

"Through this agreement with Adobe, we can enable large organizations to more efficiently process information from both electronic and paper-based sources, and streamline their document-processing workflow," said Rick Murphy, president and CEO at Kofax. "Working with Adobe, we can provide our mutual partners and customers with an integrated, comprehensive information capture solution, that increases the overall efficiency of their daily operations and ultimately reduces operational costs."

Kofax will market and sell the combined solution through its network of Certified Solution Providers (CSP), enabling customers and partners to accommodate any paper-based or online forms processing requirements and to offer a migration tool toward electronic forms processing. Using the combined solution, form designers can create interactive Adobe PDF forms that can be filled in on or off line.

The joint solution is expected to be available by the second half of the year.
