Kofax Named a Strong Performer in Robotic Process Automation by Independent Research Firm

Kofax Kapow Software Recognized for Major Deals, Elegant Architecture and Cost-Effective Deployment

IRVINE, Calif., July 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Kofax®, a leading supplier of software to automate and digitally transform information intensive processes, today announced it was among the select companies that Forrester invited to participate in its 2018 Forrester Wave™ evaluation, The Forrester Wave™: Robotic Process Automation, Q2 2018. In this evaluation, Kofax was cited as a Strong Performer in RPA. The evaluation focused on three areas: Current Offering, Strategy and Market Presence.

The report assessed Kofax Kapow™ and stated:

  • “The architecture is elegant. Customers can deploy and scale RoboServers using Docker containers, which is more cost-effective than more traditional RPA deployments using managed virtual machines.”
  • “Improvement in desktop RPA features, such as Citrix support — with surface automation based on neural technology — is evident.”
  • ”Kofax was initially a good fit only for large-scale data pooling applications, but now finance and administration (F&A) and mainstream RPA is in play.”
  • “Any enterprise with Kofax-adjacent content products (e.g., capture and BPM) or that prefers execution-based rather than per-bot licensing should shortlist Kofax.”

Hundreds of thousands of Kapow software robots are deployed at more than 600 enterprise customers across a wide range of horizontal and industry-specific use cases in banking, insurance, manufacturing, retail, logistics, government and other vertical markets.

“We’re pleased to have Forrester recognize Kapow as a Strong Performer in this RPA evaluation. Kapow’s architecture enables organizations to easily and cost effectively scale from point solutions through broad, enterprise-wide RPA deployments today,” said Reynolds C. Bish, Chief Executive Officer of Kofax. “Next generation RPA deployments will require robust intelligent document capture and process automation capabilities to better address users’ evolving requirements. Kofax is the only RPA vendor with these capabilities as part of its own software portfolio, which positions us for accelerating success in the future.”

Vice President Kalla reviews stunting prevention program in Lombok

Praya, W Nusa Tenggara (ANTARA News) – Vice President Jusuf Kalla, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim, and West Nusa Tenggara Governor Muhammad Zainul Majdi reviewed the stunting prevention program in Dakung Village, Central Praya Sub-district, Central Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara, Thursday.

Vice President Kalla noted that the stunting prevention program in the village is a future program for the youth of Indonesia.

“We must be concerned about this, as stunting can affect brain development in the future generation. Hence, these programs are being implemented to improve the childrens abilities and qualities,” he stated.

According to Kalla, this case is the outcome of what the nation had done in the past two to three decades.

“This is not a new program, but it must be rejuvenated. There are community health clinics, but they now need to be improved, and all parties need to cooperate in the system. We start by repairing roads, boosting the economy of society, and improving the health of pregnant women and children,” he explained.

In addition, the public works and public housing minister, in charge of handling clean water and infrastructure issues, attended the event.

He noted that to build a healthy generation, facilities and clean sanitation must be provided first, for which the finance minister will allocate funding.

Hence, the involvement and willingness of the community will be a determinant in ensuring the success of programs, including the stunting prevention program.

“Without a mobile community, the governments project will not work. We will come two or three years later,” he added.

Meanwhile, Village, Disadvantaged Area Development and Transmigration Minister Eko Putro Sandjojo revealed that the village fund program has had a positive impact on the progress of the village.

“I am certain that despite the village fund program encountering a problem at first, it will bring about significant development in the village,” he noted.

This is apparent from the budget that rose from 82 percent in the first year to 98 percent currently.
