Kofax Capture and Extraction for MarkView
Training & Certification

Course Overview
The focus of this course is to provide product training for the integration of document capture and automatic extraction of data with the Kofax MarkView solution.

This course is designed to provide technical skills necessary to become certified in Kofax MarkView for capture enabled invoice processing.

Attendees will be able to install and configure Kofax Capture and the necessary product extensions to obtain the highest quality documents and data for delivery into a Kofax MarkView solution and configure the Kofax MarkView KTM project to facilitate efficient processing of invoices.

This course is intended for technical professionals who need to understand how to design, implement, and support the operation of capture enabled business process management solutions using Kofax MarkView. Learning is accomplished through presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on labs.

This course is designed to provide a comprehensive deep dive into the functionality, configuration, and integration of Kofax Markview with the Kofax Capture and Transformation Module products. During this course, the attendee will become familiar with optimizing efficiency and accuracy of automatic document categorization, data extraction and validation.

At Course Completion
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
• Describe the process of transforming paper documents to digital images.
• Explain the purpose of bar-code cover pages in the capture process and know how to generate them via Kofax MarkView Home.
• Create batches to capture documents via scan or by import and perform automatic data extraction.
• Install, configure, and maintain Kofax Capture and Kofax Transformation Modules for capturing and processing documents and data for accurate delivery into the Kofax MarkView solution.
• Install and configure Kofax Capture Network Server to provide for transfer of documents and data over a wide area network or the Internet.
• Install and configure Kofax Import Connector to optimize the import of documents to Kofax Capture from a variety of input sources (with special focus on email import).
• Leverage VRS and adjust settings to improve image legibility and overall quality
• Pass a Certification Examination with a score of 85% or higher

To maximize the learning experience, it would be beneficial if the student had the following:
• Awareness of programming concepts (you do not have to write code in this course).
• Basic working knowledge of:
• SQL databases
• Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager
