Expanded Xerox Partnership with Kofax Broadens Offerings
Wednesday, April 09, 2003
NEW YORK--April 8, 2003-- Xerox Corporation and Kofax announced an enhanced partnership that addresses corporate America's growing demand to digitally safeguard and increase efficiency of business-critical information. The agreement combines Xerox Global Services' document imaging and repository capabilities with Kofax's on-site scanning and document capture applications. The integration of Xerox's and Kofax's services and solutions will enable organizations to scan unlimited numbers of documents either on-site or to Xerox's imaging and repository facility in Hot Springs, Ark. Xerox Global Services was named a Kofax National Certified Solutions Provider as part of the expanded partnership. Xerox will sell and support Kofax's data and document capture offerings. Kofax has been a Xerox Premier Business Partner since 2002. "This partnership brings a customized approach to the document and data-retention process," said Mack McCormick, vice president, Document, Content and Imaging Services, Xerox Global Services. "The combined solution offers a complete tool set for organizations challenged to address regulatory compliance, concerned about the cost of document storage and searching for ways to improve customer service." The offerings provide document-laden departments such as accounts payable, legal or customer service with the ability to scan and convert high volumes of paper documents and content from any geographic location across the organization. Knowledge workers can complete the conversion process locally, resulting in reduced processing time and shipping costs. These digital documents can then be sent securely to Xerox's offsite repository. "Our agreement with Xerox supports our philosophy of partnering with companies that strengthen our document solutions," said Kofax vice president of marketing Anthony Macciola. "With that in mind, we're very pleased to expand our relationship with Xerox."
