Kapow Katalyst Enables Critical Business Decisions to be Made Faster and with More Confidence

Irvine, CA, March 19, 2014 – Kofax® Limited (NASDAQ and LSE: KFX), a leading provider of smart process applications for the business critical First Mile of customer interactions, today announced that a major online travel agency has chosen Kapow Katalyst™ to automate the process of aggregating and analyzing competitive pricing information. 

Prior to using Kapow Katalyst, the agency used a manual coding technique to retrieve pricing from a wide range of websites. As the agency grew and competitive pressure increased, the company recognized the need to dramatically increase the scale of approach in order to aggregate data from a growing number of sites and process a higher volume of data. The company chose Kapow because of its scalability, flexible architecture and advanced monitoring capabilities.

“This dynamic online travel leader monitors massive volumes of pricing information 24/7 in order to stay ahead of the competition,” said Howard Dratler, Executive Vice President of Field Operations at Kofax. “By implementing Kapow Katalyst, executives and managers are better equipped to make more informed pricing decisions much faster and with greater confidence.”
