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 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.”

Comments Off on Taipei-Taiwan’s Tourism Bureau is promoting mountain tourism at the 4-day Taipei International Travel Fair that began Friday.
The bureau is focusing on five north-south mountain ranges — the Central Mountain, Xueshan, Yushan, Alishan and the Coastal Mountain ranges — in its pavilion at the fair, said bureau Deputy Director-General Chang Shi-chung (???).
Chang said there will be various exhibitions and forums on the mountains of Taiwan, as well as its unique cultural features such as historic trails and aboriginal lifestyles.
Taiwan is preparing to market 2020 as the Year of Mountain Tourism, after its efforts to position the country as an important international mountaineering destination in July, when the government allowed public access to the island’s national parks.
Previously, people who wanted to visit restricted “ecological protected areas” in Taiwan’s national parks had to apply for permits from both the National Police Agency and the Construction and Planning Agency.
Now, however, the Construction and Planning Agency has launched a new mountain permit application portal that requires mountain visitors to apply for only one permit and provides fast-track processing to expedite applications, the bureau said.
Much of Taiwan is covered by mountains, and it has 268 mountains of over 3,000 meters, according to the Tourism Bureau website.
That environment has made hiking and mountain climbing one of the favorite pastimes of Taiwan residents.
The number of permits issued to Taiwanese citizens and foreign nationals for access to trails in Yushan, Taroko and Shei Pa national parks has risen from 153,736 in 2016 to 187,053 in 2017 and 201,526 in 2018, according to Construction and Planning Agency figures.
In 2018, foreign nationals accounted for 7.24 percent of the permits issued.
There will be around 1,700 booths from 60 countries at the fair, to be held Nov. 8-11 at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center.
The fair, the largest of its kind in Taiwan, will feature South Korean and Japanese tourism operators amid growing local interest in travel to those countries.
