Great with complex documents but UI could be improved
Kofax is predominantly used for data extraction from documents in the banking industry Kofax RPA has allowed us to create a program in which the top 100 forms used across the organization are extracted and pushed into a database, from which any team globally can extract the information from those…

A scalable and stable solution that is simple to use and has good customer support
We use the solution to just capture the loan forms and the insurance request or request for coverage They're trying to do a digital transfer. So the benefit is the cost of not having to use paper transactions versus electronic.I would say they are saving about twenty percent of the cost- based on…

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"This is a stable platform and we did not encounter any big problems."
"Provides valuable tools working in integration with RPA tools."
"The OCR was quite stable and flexible."
"The product provided all the security controls that we asked them."
"The features that we have found the most valuable are the integration of different third-party support and productivity services."
"The product provides end-to-end solutions for different business problems."
"The product saves time and resources."
"The ability to script information from websites is most valuable. It also seems to be fairly robust and reasonably easy to manage on a server-based deployment. We have a number of robots operating on the central server."
"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."
"It's not so complex to design what you need to."
"The tool is low code which saves you from a developer."
"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."
"Data extraction and auto-classification are great features."
"Kofax TotalAgility is a single package. They provide you with OCR capabilities, BPM capabilities, and case manager features."
"Kofax TotalAgility is a great design tool for reading handwritten invoices."
"The product is really good, and it is easy to use. It comes with multiple integrations. The solution keeps up with the trend of Microsoft Copilot and AI."
 

Cons

"The interface could be better from a usability standpoint."
"We are on version 10.6, and the current version seems to be 11. Kofax is cycling the capabilities of the product very quickly. One of the difficulties has been to actually keep up with the capabilities as they've evolved. On the one hand, it is good that the product is getting better, but on the other hand, it is difficult to implement the best way with a product that is evolving constantly."
"The solution needs to be scalable."
"The process discovery could be a bit better."
"I'd like to see a recording function and a more simple interface."
"The technical support must be improved."
"Kofax RPA needs to improve integration with SAP and Microsoft. The professional services offered by the tool's team is below par. Its licensing needs to be more modular."
"Automation with the latest websites is not effective. The support of newer websites developed using new technologies would improve this solution."
"The Transformation Designer of KTA can be made better."
"Kofax TotalAgility could improve the OTR engine. The page OTR engine is not accurate in predicting the data properly. If you provide many features which are good for business process management without an accurate OTR engine people will not want it."
"It’s not truly low code yet, as every two or three projects, you will have a situation where you have to go behind the essential things. You will definitely still need to customize."
"It would be nice if the tool has more connectors to different systems. It is an expensive solution."
"They provide sufficient but not excellent technical support. Perhaps there is a point where they could use some improvement."
"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."
"Sometimes there isn't enough accuracy when it comes to extracts."
"Lacks sufficient inbuilt features."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The cost depends on the number of licenses and the number of RPAs."
"I don't have complete insight at this point in time, but I would guess that Kofax is a lot less expensive than Automation Anywhere. I would expect its license to be on a yearly basis."
"Kofax RPA's licensing costs are yearly and expensive."
"The pricing model for automation solutions like Automation Anywhere, UiPath, and Microsoft Power Platform is subscription-based, where costs are calculated based on factors such as the number of hours used and the scale of automation required.......With Kofax, you purchase a license upfront, and that's all you need. You can create as many automation workflows as you require without additional costs for individual use cases."
"Price is not a problem, because they are a competitor and we have a special rate."
"There is a standard license needed to use Kofax RPA and the price is reasonable."
"Its pricing is reasonable given the product capabilities. Kofax has a wide range of products, and it can sometimes be confusing to understand which capabilities come with which product set. One of the key facets that we've been looking into recently is cognitive document recognition that was a core pile of some of their other technologies such as Kofax transformation modules (KTM)."
"The normal price for an on-premises license is €50,000. That's the price for one robot license. You can have more than one robot license but only one can be run at any one time. I believe the cost of adding a second robot is around €14,000."
"It is slightly more expensive than other tools."
"Kofax TotalAgility is very expensive."
"The price of this solution is less than some of the competition."
"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 has a perpetual license. You pay once in a lifetime for the volume of scans you will do and the number of users you will have. You can have participants or regular users, and you can have developers and administrators. So, once you purchase it, it is for a lifetime, and then every year, you have to pay for the maintenance. There is an annual maintenance cost, which is about 18% of the licensing cost."
