Kofax AP Essentials overview

Kofax AP Essentials is an automated document processing system that utilizes remote cloud computing. This means you no longer have to maintain large server systems and complex software installations in order to process documents. Instead, we handle that for you, and all you need is a web browser to access a state-of-the-art document processing system in the cloud.
