Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The integration capabilities have been very useful.""The solution offers very good integration capabilities. We've never had issues integrating it without solutions.""The most valuable features of this solution are that it's no code, it's very flexible, and it's easy to design.""The workflow engine of K2 is its main strength. Its workflow engine is probably one of the best, and that's the reason why Nintex bought K2. It can clearly handle any complex process or scenario. K2 is almost low-code. It is a no-code or low-code solution. You don't have to read a whole lot of code. It is pretty much GUI based. Their support is also excellent. The biggest advantage of K2 is SmartObjects, which allow you to separate the data from the application. It is a standalone application that allows you to build a data source from different places, which a lot of other applications also do. It is called SmartObjects technology, which is pretty powerful. If I have data from different applications, such as JD and ServiceNow, I can just create a SmartObject based on a data source and use it. I have some forms that have six, seven, or eight applications in a single form with data from different places.""Out of box connectivity with UiPath."

"It is user-friendly and has good documentation. It's good for developing communication and has a lot of the APIs needed for this purpose. There aren't a lot of software options available from this time period; this is the only one from 2013 that has this concept of microservices.""Data extraction and auto-classification are great features.""Essentially, Kofax TotalAgility as a whole is quite nice. As of now, we've only been able to use and explore its document classification and extraction capabilities. We haven't explored and used the case management capability yet, but the scan and capture capabilities we've been using heavily and those are quite good. Our solutions are mainly around those areas of Kofax TotalAgility. We haven't explored the product a lot, but the capabilities we've explored are good.""Kofax TotalAgility is a great design tool for reading handwritten invoices.""Great with recognition providing a high level of confidence.""One feature I like is that it makes the matrix easy for an unstructured document.""The most valuable features of this solution are automation, ease of billing processes with the process net, and low to no code development.""Now it has an OCR, optical character recognition, engine where it can extract data from the document."

Cons
"The Workflow Designer needs improvement.""Heavy, cumbersome and inflexible.""The licensing needs to be improved. Right now, we find it's getting more expensive to use the product.""K2 is a workflow solution, and there is no RPA solution with K2. This is where K2 lacks a little bit. It is just a heavy workflow solution. It doesn't have a supplemental product like RPA. If you want to use RPA, you have to use Blue Prism, UIPath, or something else. If you use Nintex, it has an RPA solution. It is a form-based application, and they are doing everything electronically. The initial investment in K2 is heavy because it is a BPM software. It does not have a low cost because they charge you the same for one workflow or 100 workflows.""Currently, it's taking quite some time to deploy a package, it needs improvement"

"The Transformation Designer of KTA can be made better.""Lacks sufficient inbuilt features.""They provide sufficient but not excellent technical support. Perhaps there is a point where they could use some improvement.""There needs to be more accessible certification and better pricing.""TotalAgility needs to improve communication with ECMs or other file storage systems because TotalAgility does not have file storage. A good improvement would be to create file storage or integrate with other file storage tools that are currently available.""The one thing I would like to see more of right now: is a simplified form creation. That would be the most significant improvement I would like to see in their product.""Kofax TotalAgility is quite vast and complex as a product. We came from Kofax Capture and Kofax Transformation, then we started learning Kofax TotalAgility, so there are a lot of things that were quite straightforward in the Kofax Capture and Kofax Transformation cross-motion modules, but to do those in Kofax TotalAgility was a bit more complex or quite long-winded and could be improved. In the next release of Kofax TotalAgility, it would be good to have a straightforward low-code or no-code process because there were instances we struggled with having to put logic into a script or a .NET script, then calling that script, instead of the process being low-code, no-code.""Table line item extraction is not possible through Quick Capture."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The initial investment in K2 is heavy. Currently, the expenditure is $28,000 for a year. After we go to the cloud, it is going to be per seat and probably cheaper. Currently, there are unlimited users."
  • "There is an initial fee when purchasing and a fee for maintenance afterward."
  • More K2 Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The licensing cost for Kofax TotalAgility is very expensive, though I'm unable to give you the range, the sales representatives of my company say that the product is quite expensive."
  • "It is slightly more expensive than other tools."
  • "Kofax TotalAgility is very expensive."

    Questions from the Community
    Top Answer:The integration capabilities have been very useful.
    Top Answer:I am unsure of the exact pricing. Nintex acquired K2 in 2020 and there may be a shift in the cost structure. I can't speak directly to that, however.
    Top Answer:The Workflow Designer needs improvement. For example, when you design a workflow on K2, it shows the entire area between one action and another action. However, you should be able to see the structure… more »
    Top Answer:Now it has an OCR, optical character recognition, engine where it can extract data from the document.
    Top Answer:Everything is included under the license. It's a bit expensive. We were using TotalAgility at one of South Africa's biggest banks, and we had to use a tool or an application that is a Kofax… more »
    Top Answer:Sometimes there isn't enough accuracy when it comes to extracts. A user has to validate the data to make sure that the data is correct. If that step is improved, then it's perfect. We need a level of… more »

    Reviews from Real Users

    Kofax TotalAgility’s cutting-edge intelligent process automation platform stands out among the many similar products offered by its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are the general wealth of features that are already built into the product when it is initially deployed and its optical character recognition (OCR) engine. Kofax TotalAgility provides users with the ability to create, deploy, and manage workflows without requiring them to overly rely on other solutions. Kofax TotalAgility’s suite makes it possible for its users to keep their reliance on any other products to a minimum. Kofax TotalAgility’s OCR engine makes it easy for users to find data that might be buried deep within their systems. It saves users a great deal of time, streamlines their data search process, and makes it easy for them to make use of their data.

    An enterprise service management consultant and Kofax developer at a technological services company writes, “There are also already a lot of built-in features, meaning you don't have to install and integrate many third-party plugins. It has a lot of its own stuff.”

    He also writes, “Now it has an OCR, optical character recognition, engine where it can extract data from the document. You can deploy the CSV file and put it within Kofax, and then it'll search from the CSV file as well. For example, let's say you have a long list of names. It's integrated with scanners so it's easy to find the data you need.
