IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--September 03, 2013--
Kofax plc (LSE: KFX), a leading provider of smart process applications for the business critical First Mile(TM) of customer interactions, today announced that it has been selected as part of an elite group of financial and technology companies to demonstrate its advanced mobile mortgage solution at FinovateFall 2013 in New York on September 10. The solution to be demonstrated utilizes Kofax Mobile Capture(TM), which has been named one of three finalists for Mortgage Technology's Harnessing Mobile Award.
At FinovateFall 2013, Kofax will teach lenders how they can engage and interact directly with borrowers on their mobile devices to accelerate the loan application process. Kofax will show how its solution enables customers to use cameras in mobile devices to submit trailing documents directly into the loan process, removing latency from the complex underwriting process.
According to an April 2013 report(1) by Aite Group, an independent research and advisory firm focused on business, technology, and regulatory issues and their impact on the financial services industry, banks are likely to lose opportunities to competitors that offer a more flexible onboarding process that fits a customer's preferred way of engaging with their bank. It also states that a growing number of customers, especially generation Y, are more likely to prefer completing an application on a mobile device, particularly on a tablet.
While mobile is becoming a preferred method for gathering data, Kofax also delivers a multichannel solution that incorporates content from Internet portals, emails and faxes. The company will demonstrate how all types of documents are processed and how advancements in its analytics technology give lenders real-time dashboards and increased visibility across channels of customer engagement. It will also show how these tools can be used to identify adoption patterns, trends, bottlenecks, and efficiencies for improved decision making.
"Capturing data from customers through the use of mobile devices and having the ability to effectively analyze and measure that information is becoming increasingly critical for financial organizations," said Drew Hyatt, Senior Vice President of Mobile Applications at Kofax. "Kofax is the leader in mobile capture technology and the advancements we've made in our software are making the First Mile of customer interactions smarter, faster, and more convenient for businesses and their customers."
Kofax Mobile Capture extends Kofax imaging capabilities to smartphones and tablets. It enables customers to use cameras in those devices to capture images of documents, photographs, and data and then pass that content to Kofax workflows that manage it into enterprise applications and repositories. Capturing this information at the Point of Origination(TM) from virtually anywhere, and delivering it to enterprise applications accelerates processes, minimizes latency, speeds transactions and reduces processing costs for better customer service.
