Integration with Kofax TotalAgility Positions Kofax for Success in the Digital Transaction Management Market

IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Kofax® Limited (NASDAQ and LSE: KFX), a leading provider of software to simplify and transform the First Mile™ of customer engagement, today announced the availability of the Kofax SignDoc® family of e-signature solutions. SignDoc includes highly scalable, enterprise-ready software to satisfy organizations' growing e-signature requirements. With SignDoc, businesses and government agencies large and small can implement e-signature capabilities into virtually any business process across their entire organization for internal or external use.

SignDoc Standard is a stand-alone solution providing versatile self service capabilities, so users can design, deploy and manage custom e-signing workflows. SignDoc Enterprise enables organizations to design, deploy and manage custom e-signing workflows and embed advanced e-signature capabilities within a host of enterprise applications. SignDoc Enterprise is seamlessly integrated with Kofax TotalAgility™, the company's flagship process automation platform, so organizations can add secure and authenticated e-signature functionality to end-to-end business processes powered by TotalAgility.

"Electronic signatures are finally gaining momentum — driven by simpler, more accessible, and cheaper smartphones, tablets, and touchscreen computers," wrote Craig Le Clair, Vice President, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research in a recent report1. "We see a widening variety of use cases demonstrating insights that can help enterprise architects overcome adoption hurdles."

For enterprise users, capturing and processing e-signatures is part of a more comprehensive business process automation requirement. By adding e-signature functionality to TotalAgility, Kofax now offers a digital transaction management solution that addresses the following key needs:

  • Secure, trustworthy e-signature software that meets international regulatory requirements
  • Workflow automation that enables e-signing to be fully integrated into existing enterprise systems and end-to-end, digital transaction management processes
  • Ability to persist signed documents in any ECM repository using industry standard interfaces
  • Process intelligence and visibility to ensure compliance, reduce risk and enhance operational efficiency
  • Web data integration capabilities to speed and streamline digital transactions
  • Unprecedented flexibility for customer engagements via mobile devices

"Digital transaction management is an emerging market category that defines a new way to conduct business," said Grant Johnson, Chief Marketing Officer at Kofax. "With the introduction of Kofax SignDoc Enterprise and the integration of e-signatures into TotalAgility, Kofax is positioned to succeed in this market category."

SignDoc helps organizations to significantly improve customer engagement and operational efficiencies by giving users the power to execute secure, digitally executed transactions using a wide variety of computing platforms and mobile devices. SignDoc supports "click to sign" and handwritten signatures, and can capture biometrics at the time of signing for greater security and authentication.

Ideally suited for enterprise use, SignDoc offers a wide range of deployment options and innovative e-signature capabilities. Users have insight into the complete audit trail of all interactions, because SignDoc allows users to verify document integrity from within a PDF Reader, without needing IT experts or accessing an external site. Furthermore, SignDoc's standards-based digital signing and self-contained document approach ensures that any post-signing tampering of the electronically signed document is immediately apparent without the need to consult Kofax. This process and the resulting audit trail provide proof that a legally-binding transaction has taken place.
