Visioneer, Inc., a leader in intelligent imaging solutions, today announced that Kofax was named its ISV Partner of the Year for 2005. Kofax is the worlds largest information capture vendor. The award was presented to Richard Anderson, OEM sales manager at Kofax during a celebration at Visioneers inaugural customer event, PartnerVision 2006 from January 25-27 in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Kofax was recognized for its VirtualReScan (VRS) technology, the de facto industry standard for image processing. VRS improves both image quality and OCR (optical character recognition) accuracy, delivering unmatched image quality and eliminating the need to rescan document images because of its automatic check for and adjustment of alignment (skew), brightness, contrast or image-clarity inconsistencies. When combined with Visioneers full line of document imaging hardware solutions, VRS provides customers a complete solution that enhances scanning, improves workflow and reduces the costs associated with capture.
Kofax enjoys a very strong working relationship with Visioneer and is honored to receive this award for our VRS product, which reflects the industry-leading technology that we bring to our partners and customers, said Doug Rudolph, vice president of business development and OEM sales at Kofax.
Visioneer was the first company to bundle VRS with workgroup scanners, said Don McMahan, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Visioneer. We wanted to bring the benefits of VRS to desktop users without the need for them to buy a $5-10K production scanner. VRS technology is the benchmark for document image quality in all types of scanning environments and both complements and extends the value of Visioneer scanners. We are pleased to have the opportunity to recognize Kofax with this award as it reinforces the strength of our partnership.
