Kofax and Hummingbird Strengthen Partnership

Oct 10, 2003

Hummingbird Ltd., a developer of enterprise information management systems, has selected Kofax, an information capture vendor, as a Strategic Technology Partner. As the highest partnership level in Hummingbird's Technical Alliance Program, Strategic Technology Partners are expected to focus on Fortune 500 customers, are global in reach, and have products that complement Hummingbird's offerings.

Kofax reached this level by linking its Ascent platform for information capture with Hummingbird Enterprise. The resulting system is designed to enable users to automatically capture information from paper documents and electronic data sources into their Hummingbird document management system. The information then becomes available for use in a variety of Hummingbird Enterprise applications including enterprise portal, document management, records management, knowledge management, collaboration, business intelligence, and data integration applications.

Features of the Hummingbird DM 5.1 integration module for Ascent, developed by Kofax, include: collecting paper documents and electronic data from sources, including scanners, digital copiers, fax servers and electronic sources, and from either central or remote offices; transforming those documents and data into information by enhancing and classifying the documents and then extracting and validating the information; and delivering the information directly into a Hummingbird DM repository for retrieval.
