Kofax plc (LSE: KFX), the leading provider of Intelligent Capture & Exchange solutions, announced the launch of Kofax Desktop, a new, entry-level desktop scanning software that makes scanning a document as easy as printing by seamlessly embedding such capabilities within Microsoft Office 2007 applications. The software significantly increases scanning access, efficiency and productivity and extends Kofax's software offerings to personal productivity and collaboration applications.

"With the introduction of Kofax Desktop software, we now have broader access to the capture market and can provide a range of products to address desktop to enterprise needs," said Jim Nicol, Executive Vice President of Products at Kofax. "Kofax Desktop provides powerful scan options within Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook or for scanning into SharePoint applications that many workers and individuals use every day. It eliminates the need for separately launched programs and time-consuming back-and-forth program switching, making image scanning as simple, convenient and efficient as printing a document."

Simple to install and easy to use, Kofax Desktop brings the power of Kofax capture technology to users who want to store digital images of paper documents or a simple method to scan attachments into email messages. Embedded seamlessly within Microsoft Office 2007 applications, the software offers easy access to TWAIN-based scanners through a drop-down menu bar. The software also features right-click scanning from Windows Explorer or the Desktop, thus allowing users to scan, automatically convert a document into a PDF file format and then save or email the image without having to open multiple applications. Scanned images can also be tabbed within Excel spreadsheets or embedded within Word documents and PowerPoint presentations for easy reference or access.

Kofax Desktop also enables Scan-to-SharePoint capabilities through SharePoint Server 2007, thus allowing users to scan images directly into an existing document library folder or create new folders quickly and simply. Additionally, the software provides the ability to add a hyperlink within a Microsoft Outlook 2007 email message to a scanned document, thus making image access convenient, easy and efficient.
