AutoBites automates the import, processing and export of document images

Combined with Kofax Express, AutoBites™ automates the import, processing and export of document images.

Images can be processed with VRS, bar codes recognized and documents delivered to a document management system, database or email inbox of choice.

Run Kofax Express with AutoBites on an unattended computer and scan from one or more MFPs to a watched folder to process the images completely automatically.

IMPORTANT: It’s technically impossible to make AutoBites and the Commander Tool compatible with Kofax Express version 3.3. If you are not able to use Kofax Express version 3.1 or 3.2, we highly recommend to use MetaServer instead.

Combine AutoBites with any device that scans PDF, TIF, JPG or BMP files to a folder.

If you can scan color or gray photo quality, you can use VRS to crop, deskew and convert the images to perfect and compact black & white images.

Or convert images delivered on DVD or USB drive to super compressed searchable color PDF or PDF/A  files.

Watch the 5 minute video to learn how AutoBites can be used with network scanners and watched folders.

Use Cases:
