Kofax Replacement Success Stories

U.S. Air Force

Press Release

Since the agency began using Ephesoft Transact, they have accelerated their document processing setup by about 94% and have seen a throughput rate of 95%, which means only 5% of the documents need human validation. Their previous system required seven servers, while now they achieve the same performance with only two Ephesoft servers, cutting costs by 71.5%. Users also report that Ephesoft technology is easy to work with, easy to process batches, convenient, customizable, centralized, offers reporting, fast and allows users to work from home due to easy access.

State Workforce Agency

Success Story

The client was looking for ways to improve the ingestion of documents including mailroom improvements and scanning. They were using Kofax Capture which was not providing the legal and benefits departments with the high accuracy document recognition results or the automated data extraction required.

Pepperdine University

Success Story

The existing configuration used Kofax, but it didn’t have the functionality to do everything they needed: batch scan and store documents. Additionally, they wanted to only use one product with one contract for easier billing. They found out that Ephesoft could easily integrate with Etrieve document management system to have full functionality for their requirements.

Washington State Health Care Authority

Success Story

After doing due diligence with an ROI comparison between Ephesoft and Kofax, Washington State HCA selected Ephesoft as their preferred platform. The ROI comparison painted a picture of tremendous benefits, fast ROI and labor savings for the entire enterprise. In contrast to Kofax Capture, Ephesoft offered unlimited users, unlimited scans and validation stations, uncapped document throughput, a browser-based platform for users and administration, faster and more accurate processing, more advanced tabular data capture and the best OCR recognition results.
