Kofax Lands BPM Deal with Stock Exchange

As we discussed at length in our last premium issue, Kofax has staked a lot on sales of BPM software going forward. CEO Reynolds Bish told DIR that the Irvine, CA-based document capture specialist should do $20-25 million in BPM revenue for calendar 2012, with that figure doubling by Kofax's fiscal 2014 (ends June 30). The foundation for this growth is Singularity, a Northern Ireland-based ISV that Kofax acquired late last year. Singularity had annual revenue of $16.1 million.

So, today's announcement of a $400,000 BPM sale to "one of the largest stock exchanges in North America," is certainly good news for Kofax. According to the press release, "a leading multi-asset class financial exchange group will implement Kofax TotalAgility as its BPM and dynamic case management solution to improve the execution and efficiency of its listing processes. The software will enable the customer to automate the administrative processes needed for a company to list on the exchange in order to reduce process latency and also route the supporting documentation to its Microsoft SharePoint and EMC Documentum content management applications for easy access by employees."

Organizations utilizing SharePoint for document management are clearly one of Kofax's BPM targets, so this deal makes sense in that regard. Doesn't seem to be a capture component here, but that's not a big deal. Kofax's two technologies are complementary, but not co-dependent.
