Kofax Announces Ascent Xtrata Pro

Simplifies development and implementation of information capture solutions; quick, easy-to-deploy and configure, and well-suited for invoice processing

IRVINE, Calif., November 13, 2006 -- Kofax today announced the availability of Ascent® Xtrata Pro, a quick and easy-to-deploy solution that works in tandem with Ascent Capture to classify and extract data from any document type. With the introduction of Ascent Xtrata Pro, the development and deployment of information capture applications are greatly simplified. The new product is able to manage structured and unstructured content from any type of document, transforming unpredictably formatted content into actionable information.

By hiding complex technology behind intuitive and easy-to-use graphical user interfaces on Ascent Xtrata Pro, solutions can be developed by simply pointing and clicking a mouse. Further, Kofax's learn-by-example extraction technology is leveraged by Ascent Xtrata Pro to minimize the need for scripting, templating, or rules construction to further simplify set-up and operation.

Ascent Xtrata Pro enhances the Ascent Platform by providing an ideal solution for information capture applications of low-to-medium complexity where ease of deployment and configuration and low maintenance costs are key requirements.

Intuitive graphical user interfaces (GUIs) and simple drag-and-drop and point-and-click operations make task configuration quick and easy. Wizards are also provided to further speed the building of projects. Both image and content classification can be managed by Ascent Xtrata Pro. This means users can classify fixed layout documents (forms) and variable layout/content- rich documents (correspondence).
