Fax and email Capture with Kofax KCS
Automating information exchange with fax and email software
Incoming communication streams such as fax or email can be automatically routed to your business processes avoiding the need for manual intervention. This enables more straight-through processing and fast, accurate delivery benefits customer service and the timely handling of business critical documents.
Kofax Communication Server (KCS) integrates incoming and outgoing information from different communication channels into one system with definable rules, routing and auditing. Least cost routing is enabled via existing LAN/WAN channels wherever possible so that expensive fax lines can be aggregated to save costs.
Multichannel information capture and delivery to your business processes
KCS links incoming information with the intended business process or workflow regardless of location, communication device or communication mode. Your company can exchange information in the formats most suitable for your customers, suppliers and employees as the KCS system covers all modes of communication including telephony, fax, telex, email and email attachments and SMS.
For inbound communications, this enables straight-through, automated capture of information from items such as sales orders, insurance claims, application forms, invoices, CV’s, customer enquiries or letters of complaint arriving in your company electronically by modes such as fax or email. The capture process will classify these business process documents, extract and validate relevant data and deliver them to the appropriate ERP, CRM, ECM or line of business system with little or no keying or intervention.
