Features of Kofax Mobile SDK


  • Capture. Our capture APIs control the focus, flash, and shutter of the device to ensure the image is captured correctly the first time. This eliminates challenges that impact the user experience and the effectiveness of the app.
  • Video Capture. Leveraging the video mode on the mobile device, the Kofax Mobile SDK automatically captures the image for the user, eliminating issues with blur, jitter and shifting. Video capture is an option available to the developer in addition to standard photo mode, and can be customized to ensure the greatest usability of the app.
  • Real-time Data Extraction. Data is extracted, validated, and presented to the user in near real-time. Kofax can extract data from documents in over 140 languages and can process content, from structured forms to unstructured correspondence.
  • Image Enhancement. The enhancement process employs Kofax VirtualReScan® (VRS) a patented Kofax technology that de-skews the image, separates the image from the background, and cleans up the image by removing artifacts such as shadows. This process is important as it greatly improves data extraction accuracy along with image quality.
  • Any Document Type. Whether an ID, check, pay stub, or legal form, the document is captured and a process-ready image is delivered (ranging from a single document transaction to a mixed batch of multiple pages and documents).
  • Barcode Recognition. Recognize barcodes natively on the device, in real-time; use the data to deliver more effective customer engagement apps and solutions.
  • Auto Torch. Automatically turns the flash on in low-light situations and turns the flash off when the capture process is completed.

Transform Customer Engagement
By turning mobile devices into advanced information-capture devices, the Kofax Mobile SDK™ extends business processes to the First Mile™—your initial, business-critical customer interactions—so latency is minimized and customers are more engaged and empowered. Organizations are therefore better connected with customers by “meeting them where they are” to accelerate transactions, improve processes and drive revenue.
Patented Image Perfection
Kofax image perfection capabilities capture a perfect image—the first time, every time. This ensures the data can be extracted and effectively utilized in business processes, creating both superior results and satisfied customers. Without Kofax capture technology the customer could take an out-of-focus, unusable image, resulting in a broken process and creating additional steps for both the enterprise and the customer.
Kofax technology not only makes sure the image is readable, in the correct format/orientation, and captured in its entirety, but also generates a file size that’s more manageable for the customer. And because it runs natively, it improves the usability of the app and enables developers to design experiences that provide instantaneous feedback about the document quality.
