Just finished up attending Kofax’s annual Transform reseller event in not-so-sunny Southern California. Was a very solid event held at Dana Point – a resort town just south of LA. Kofax made plenty of exciting product announcements that will showing up in the next few issues of DIR, as they become available for public consumption. Here’s one that’s good to go now. It involves Adobe’s LiveCycle Barcoded Forms product. Sounds like Adobe is having some success using this product to combine e-forms and paper forms applications. Tax processing was the first big market we I.D.’d. Healthcare seems like it also might be a fertile area. Signature requirements on e-forms that could otherwise be submitted electronically are the big driver. Kofax resellers will now be able to sell an Ascent-embedded version of the product.
Also, at the event, Visioneer launched its first official departmental model – although there seems to have been some confusion between Visioneer and Infotrends about where a couple of its existing models fit into the market. The new 632 bosts a legal-sized flatbed and is rated at 35 ppm/70 ipm for a list of just under $2,000.
