We combine market leading capture, content, process management, data integration, mobile, e-signature, customer communications management, seach and analytics capabilities from Kofax, Perceptive Software and ReadSoft into a unified process automation development and deployment platform. This platform enables organizations to increase their responsiveness to customers, provide better service, gain a competitive advantage and better grow their businesses while reducing operating costs.
Kofax dramatically transforms and simplifies the business critical First Mile™ of real time, information intensive customer interactions. In doing so, organizations can significantly increase their responsiveness to customers, provide a higher level of service, gain competitive advantage and better manage and grow their businesses while also greatly reducing operating costs.
We combine market leading capture, process management, mobile and analytics capabilities to provide “smart process applications.” Smart process applications enable organizations to realize these benefits in a timely and cost effective manner while minimizing the need to modify existing enterprise applications and repositories. They provide an essential link between an organization’s “systems of engagement” and “systems of record.”
Kofax provides a comprehensive software solution that automatically captures business critical interactions regardless of how, where and when they arise. Once captured, the content of those interactions is automatically extracted and perfected.
The solution then initiates and executes the downstream business processes needed to collaborate with customers to the resolve the inconsistencies that inevitably arise, capture missing or trailing information, obtain necessary approvals, act upon and export the results into the appropriate systems of record, all while ensuring the consistent application of business rules needed for regulatory compliance and internal governance purposes.

I have been working at Kofax full-time (More than a year)
- Overall very smart, innovation-minded colleagues
- Focused on delivering value to customers
- Highly competitive pay and strong benefits, with some room for improvement on benefits
- Generally pleasant, loose, fun work environment (most of the time)
- Extremely nice employee appreciation events throughout the year, especially the holiday party
- Acquisition wear and tear over the past 2 years has been especially tough on employees from the Lenexa office
- Irvine office does not embrace telecommuting. It happens from time to time, but it's frowned upon, and that's pretty annoying and ridiculous in this day and age.
- CEO is not warm and fuzzy, and for some that's a con. I'm happy with him ensuring that the business is well-run so we have long-term job security.
- No bonuses
Advice to Management
- Stay the course through the current acquisition, and then deliver on long-term stability
- Be more open to modern concepts like telecommuting
- Embrace some new-fangled employee benefits, increase 401k contributions, etc. to sweeten the deal for employees
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Kofax (Irvine, CA) in February 2016.
Several interviews with a senior VP and 5 functional managers. 2 month process. Standard questioning among all interviews. Human Resources very involved and kept me informed of progress. Very good communication and well defined process.
