Key Capabilities of Kofax RPA

Kofax RPA is a market-leading, AI-powered platform that automates business processes using smart software robots that run seven days a week, 24 hours a day. With Kofax RPA,enterprises, BPO providers and shared service organizations around the world can achieve exceptional benefits in operational quality, speed and cost.

Kofax RPA lets you quickly build, deploy and manage automated robots directly on a centralized server  that interacts across internal enterprise systems, web sites, web portals, desktop applications and other data sources—without requiring APIs, scripting and complex coding.

With the richest set of next-gen  RPA capabilities, Kofax RPA combines robotic process automation, business process management,  process mining and cognitive document automation to empower organizations to automate and digitally transform human- and information-intensive processes.

Kofax RPA’s rapid ROI is powered by non-disruptive robot automation technology that can be rapidly implemented and is complementary with your primary business systems.

In this article you will be able to learn about the capabilities of Kofax RPA (Formerly Kapow).


Unified robot designer: Kofax RPA Design Studio is a visual point-and-click environment where business analysts and developers can visually build, test and debug robots without code. This powerful design tool lets designers interact with live applications as they build out a process and leverage a rich library of reusable process snippet activities.


Versatile robot automation: Kofax RPA robots interact with virtually any legacy enterprise applications or modern business systems, web site, portal, database, and content (e.g. PDFs, Excel, …). Data is extracted, processed and passed between applications, websites, portals and databases, while business rules and logic are applied throughout the workflow.

Centralized robot deployment, execution and management: A centralized administration for controlling, monitoring, executing and scheduling robot process execution on a server-based architecture does not require multiple virtual desktops for web and mainframe app processes.

Automated Process Discovery and RPA Analytics: Identify tasks and processes for automation by capturing manual user activities. Out-of-the-box dashboards enable you to monitor, analyze and optimize user and robotic process automation operations.

Cognitive Document Automation (CDA): Applies powerful, AI-based intelligence to learn and process unstructured document data. It uses machine learning analysis for document processing and dynamically adapts to your evolving data processes.

Extensible architecture: Flexible architecture connects with business process management as well as Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities from third party cognitive services such as Google Vision or IBM Watson.

Enterprise scalability and performance: Kofax RPA robots execute concurrently on a centralized server, only requiring access to a virtual desktop when interacting with thick client applications like SAP. Robots interacting with web applications or mainframe systems take advantage of an embedded browser engine and embedded terminal emulation software on the Kofax RPA server, avoiding the extra costs and complexity associated with managing larger virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI).

Integrated web browser engine: Delivers superior web application automation support and supports the execution of multiple robots concurrently in memory on a server without the need to run multiple virtual desktops with browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer).

Build and share reusable robot components: Kofax RPA snippets enable robot designers to build a robot component once and reuse it across many robots, as well as share among other robot designers in the organization.

Enterprise Robot Lifecycle Management: Integrated industry-standard Version Control System (VCS) for managing hundreds to thousands of RPA robots from development through testing to production.

Robot synthetic API: Robots are published with a SOAP or REST service, Java or .NET API endpoint, which can be called from other systems and workflow processes.

Extensive security control: Access to the platform is role-based. Connect with LDAP or Active Directory, or use built-in user management capabilities. Includes a password store to securely management robot user credentials designed to grant access to different systems without disclosing sensitive information to users who create and run robots.

Micro apps powered by robots: Lightweight, web based business applications called Kapplets can be designed to execute robots by users based on set parameters or present data back to a business user.

Intelligent Screen Automation: Robots can capture an image of a screen and dynamically locate and identify UI elements such as labels, buttons and text boxes within application environments like Citrix.

Detailed audit and logging: Detailed audit and log of user and robot activity is available through the management console and dashboards, allowing administrators to monitor robot activity, performance and key business process metrics.
