Irvine, CA, February 13, 2018 – Kofax®, a leading provider of software to simplify and transform the First Mile™ of business, today announced Kofax Kapow™ has been named to the Constellation ShortList™ for Robotic Process Automation (RPA) in Q1 2018. The technology vendors included in the ShortList meet key requirements for early adopters pursuing digital transformation initiatives.
Kofax Kapow, the #OriginalBot, is RPA software that allows users to deploy smart robots to mimic human actions and automate a wide range of manual, repetitive tasks while driving continuous improvements. With hundreds of thousands of Kapow robots deployed at more than 550 enterprise customers, BPO providers and shared service organizations around the world, Kapow has enabled exceptional results by driving improved operational efficiency, more rapid customer responses, better compliance and material cost savings.
Unlike competitive RPA software, Kapow's unique architecture runs all robots on a centralized server and does not require a virtual desktop infrastructure. These smart robots interact seamlessly with applications, aggregating data, transforming it into actionable information, triggering responses, and communicating across enterprise systems, web sites and desktop applications. Kapow robots can be implemented without complex coding or lengthy development cycles, accelerating project deployment and increasing ROI.
“We’re only six weeks into the Year of the Robot and this recognition validates Kapow’s market leading capabilities and position,” said Reynolds C. Bish, Chief Executive Officer of Kofax. “Constellation’s comprehensive criteria and thorough research methodology confirm Kofax as an innovative leader in the RPA market.”
