Kofax Debuts New Mobile Identification Product

Irvine-based document capture and handling software developer Kofax launched a new product this morning, saying it has launched a mobile app to help its customer capture proof of identity documents such as driver's licenses and passports. The company's new Kofax Mobile ID product is aimed at account opening and other similar processes, to help capture identification information. Kofax said the mobile app lets its users take a picture of a driver license, passport or national identity card using their smartphone or other mobile device, and then extracts that information and validates that information. Pricing on the new product was not announced. Kofax said its new app supports all 50 U.S. state and most international driver licenses, passports and national identity cards.
