Kofax TotalAgility 7 has a built in date formatter which supports the same functionality as the date formatter used in Kofax Transformation Modules (KTM), although without support for a dictionary to replace month names with the corresponding month number. Extending our Kofax TotalAgility knowledge series, I am presenting an easy DIY solution to build this functionality in TotalAgility.
Kofax TotalAgility 7 was launched with many exciting features and enhanced functionality. The new license verification feature has led to a recurrent question related with the Kofax TotalAgility 7 License Activation Error. Having encountered this issue myself as an early adopter of KTA 7, I thought it would be worthwhile explaining the root cause and options you have to manage it.
Concurrent User Model in Kofax TotalAgility 7
Kofax TotalAgility 7 is developed based on a concurrent user model. This means that as soon as a user logs into the system, one user session is initiated out of the total number of allowed sessions. When a user does not logout properly from the system then this session is not released unless and until it is forcibly released.
The post presents a generalized walk-through by elaborating all the steps with the help of a simple KTA 7.1 example. Furthermore, the procedure can be adapted to customize your requirements according to your individual business process requirements. You can also have a look at the video to watch the entire procedure performed live in the Kofax TotalAgility designer to gain a better understanding of the process.
In another strategic move by Kofax, the company has acquired German company Softpro GmbH which is a leading provider of signature verification, signature fraud prevention, electronic signature (e-signature) software and services. The acquisition of Softpro GmbH has been confirmed by Kofax in a Press release on September 2, 2014. The acquisition costs a total of $34.7 million in cash to Kofax, out of which $31.2 million has already been paid on September 1, 2014 to formally close the deal.
After acquiring Singularity, Altosoft and Kapow, the latest acquisition of Softpro by Kofax is another bolt-on to the TotalAgility based Kofax Smart Process Application platform. More than 20,000 existing Kofax customers are going to benefit most with this strategic acquisition of Softpro GmbH by Kofax.
It is quite easy to see how the existing Kofax product suite compliments this newly acquired signature verification and e-signature technology.Continue Reading
TotalAgility 7 seems to be a game changer in the world of BPM. Kofax has been quite instrumental in writing out their brand transformation success story by strategically acquiring Altosoft in BI (Business Intelligence) domain, Singularity in BPM (Business Process Management) domain and Kapow in Integration domain.
The aggressive behavior of Kofax in integrating these independent products with their legacy Capture product has broadcasted a bold and clear message to the world that Kofax is striving to become the global leader in Smart Process Application Platform.Continue Reading
Kofax TotalAgility Feature Evolution
Kofax TotalAgility has witnessed many changes over the years, the most significant being Kofax TotalAgility 6 followed by Kofax TotalAgility 7 and now the recent release of Kofax TotalAgility 7.1. Whilst feature enhancements have been mostly progressive with the exception of some significant backward steps from version 5.5 to 6, some changes have had their critics from experienced Kofax TotalAgility users and developers (including myself).
One such example, whilst at first glance would seem minor, it makes a major difference with HCI (Human Computer Interaction) capability for the end user. In my opinion, it results in a backward step for the Kofax TotalAgility product. This feature is related with the implementation of default button click action against the trigger of an Enter key press from the keyboard.Continue Reading
Is it time to ditch the fat client IDE of TotalAgility 5.5 and it’s predecessors for the slick new 7 browser based equivalent?
I have to admit that my first experience of TotalAgility 6 was a challenging one. The new browser based designer is a complete IDE rewrite and as such Kofax has taken the opportunity to relocate all those configuration options that you were so used to on the fat client. As with all major software rewrites there is going to be some pain, but this is not without gain and with a bit of persistence I can say without hesitation that I’m 100% converted to the new user interface.
